With an extensive knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pathology, neurology, and endocrinology, Registered Massage Therapists can competently assess and treat a plethora of conditions. Massage Therapy primarily involves, but is not limited, to a hands on approach to manipulating the soft tissues of the body, including muscles, connective tissue, tendons, and ligaments.
Massage Therapists may also use stretching, and joint mobilization techniques during a treatment, and are qualified to give exercise prescription, supervised, or for home care.
