5 Reasons to Visit a Registered Massage Therapist
Not sure if you should be seeing an Registered Massage Therapist (RMT)? Here are five reasons your body is begging you to go!
Registered Massage Therapists (RMT’s) work with you to both help relieve pain and discomfort in your muscles and joints, and to help heal and repair musculoskeletal injuries.
5 Reasons to go to an RMT
1) You’re an Athlete - Even For Fun!
An athletic lifestyle will inevitably leave you with a few bumps and bruises. But even more importantly, there is a greater chance of injury and strain on your body with repeated and long-term athletic activities. From improper technique while working out to going a little too hard on the court, an RMT can help heal and soothe what hurts!
Even casual athletes get muscle soreness!
2) You Have a High Stress Lifestyle
Life can be stressful - and sometimes it feels like there are never enough hours in the day! For some people, this can manifest in a physical way. Tight shoulders, headaches, and strained backs and necks can all interfere with your day to day life! A visit to an RMT can help take the edge off and help you better manage your stress.
3) You Experience Chronic Illnesses or Pain
Unfortunately for some, pain is a part of their life everyday - but fortunately there are treatments that can help alleviate and manage some of the core or associated issues. From chronic back pain to fibromyalgia, an RMT can help soothe the aching muscles and ligaments to help manage the severity of the pain, without the use of drugs. This usually lends itself to better quality sleep, and reduced stress levels.
4) You’re Working a Static or Repetitive Job
Sitting in an office all day with few breaks or walks, or working at a job that requires repetitive physical activities can really take a toll on your body. Lack of movement and repetitive strain injuries are some of the most common things RMT's see!
Don't forget to stretch at work! And visit an RMT!
5) You Don’t Actually Hurt! Yet…
Even if you don’t fall into one of the categories above, an RMT can help you maintain your good health and nip any issues in the bud before they are expressed or even become chronic. Think of it like a tune-up for your body - a way to hit reset and help eliminate any developing issues.
