What is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is a hands-on skill learned through accredited programs with clinical practice and ongoing continuing education courses. A massage therapist will use their hands or other tools to manipulate the body’s tissue in a manner that is conducive to optimal healing. Massage therapy is useful during rehabilitation after an injury, prevention of aches and pains, and for general relaxation and stress reduction.

What does it mean for my massage therapist to be “Registered”?

Massage therapists have several associations in which to choose registration. The Massage Therapists Association of Alberta (MTAA), Natural Health Practitioners of Canada (NHPC) and Canadian Massage & Manual Osteopathic Therapists Association (CMMOTA) are three such associations which serve to guide their members with standards of practice and code of ethics. All massage therapists at Lakeview Movement Studio are registered and fulfill their obligations to continually learn and provide safe and effective treatments for their clients.

  • Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD)

Manual Lymphatic drainage is a specialized technique aimed at reducing or eliminating edema/swelling throughout the body. Edema can present after surgery, injury, post cancer treatments, illness or can show up if the lymphatic system is not functional properly. This technique is a light soothing pressure aimed at moving edema from areas of congestion so it can be eliminated. An MLD session can be on its own or combined with a therapeutic massage treatment where needed.  A typical treatment is 60 minutes.
