Massage Therapy Clinic
Massage Therapy is based on modern concepts of anatomy, including a wide variety of modalities that go beyond the original framework of Swedish massage at our Mississauga Massage Therapy Clinic, we help alleviate muscle discomfort associated with everyday and occupational stresses, muscular overuse, and many chronic pain syndromes. It can also greatly reduce the development of painful muscular patterning if begun early enough after accidents involving trauma and injury.
Massage has been shown to increase the body's production of pain-killing endorphins and the mood-altering hormone serotonin. It can also slow the release of the stress hormone cortisol. Tense muscles that may also compress blood vessels and stretch nerves, restricting blood flow and causing pain. As the affected area is massaged, the muscles gradually release their strangle hold on the irritated nerves, and the pain eases. The same mechanisms also make massage helpful in the recovery process for an injured muscle.
