At Lawrence Park Health and Wellness Clinic, all of our Toronto RMTs are practitioners that are fully registered with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO). This means our therapists are qualified, registered professionals who have completed a diploma program at a recognized school of massage therapy and have also passed a registration examination by the CMTO. This distinguishes our RMTs from the average masseuse, who is simply an unregulated individual providing massage.
Massage Therapy is a comprehensive intervention used to treat a variety of conditions through various forms of soft tissue manipulation and gentle joint mobilizations. The purpose of massage therapy is to prevent, rehabilitate and enhance physical function, while relieving pain and promoting optimal health and well-being. It is a clinically-proven health modality that achieves undeniable results in the relief of an array of conditions stemming from stress, acute injuries (macro-trauma), overuse injuries (micro-trauma) and many chronic pain syndromes. Many people seek Massage Therapy after injury or surgery or to treat discomforts such as: neck pain, back pain, pulled muscles, joint pain, pregnancy related conditions, arthritis, headaches and migraines. Massage therapy not only promotes relaxation and relieves muscle tension and pain, it can also improve blood flow, promote proper lymphatic drainage, boost your immune system, relieve pressure on nerves, and restore normal joint movement. Massage therapy is safe for individuals of all ages, including pregnant women and seniors.
Prior to your treatment, you will meet with your RMT to complete and review your confidential health history form. A brief assessment will follow, which may include, but may not be limited to, range of motion and special testing, depending on your primary concern(s). Your RMT will then discuss your treatment with you, providing you the opportunity to ask questions. Upon your consent to treatment, the therapist will allow you to disrobe in private. Our therapists respect your privacy and will ensure you are properly and professionally draped at all times during your treatment. Treatment will commence for the allotted time.
Lawrence Park Health Clinic is pleased to offer in-home registered massage therapy treatments. Most of our in-home massage appointments are booked between the hours of 12pm – 5pm, Mondays and Wednesdays, but we occasionally do offer some flexibility if we have a therapist available. If you have difficulty getting around due to mobility issues, lack of transportation, or just simply prefer to be treated in the comfort of your own home, in-home massage therapy just might be the perfect fit for you! Our therapists are available for in-home treatments within the north Toronto, midtown Toronto and downtown Toronto areas. If you live outside a 30min radius of our clinic, extra travel fees may apply. Please call us for bookings and additional information, we look forward to meeting you!
