Massage Therapy Calgary

Massage therapy focuses on increasing blood and lymphatic circulation, and on the relaxation of soft tissues (muscles, tendons, connective tissue, ligaments) in the body.

Our massage therapists help calm down the nervous system by enhancing total relaxation, relieve pain in the body, and restore balance in a body that has been abused, overworked and neglected. Their treatment techniques include Deep tissue, injury recovery, pre/post natal massage, Hot Stone massage, Trigger point Therapy, and Swedish Relaxation 

Our massage therapists work collaboratively with the other disciples at Seton Integrative Health Clinic (naturopathic doctors, chiropractor, acupuncturist, TCM doctor) to provide the best care and focus on the totality of a patients’ health. For eg, the massage therapist and naturopathic doctor may collaborate together on treating a patient with chronic pain, the massage therapist will focus on the physical pain, at the same time the naturopathic doctor will identify the underlying root cause of inflammation that is occurring in the body. Our massage therapists also work closely with other health care providers in the building.

Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a form of manual therapy that started in 1874 with a formal school starting in 1891 as a form of complete health care, similar to chiropractic that came out at roughly the same time. The goal of osteopathy was to improve health by ensuring optimum function and alignment of the joints in the body, and ensuring that the artery, vein and lymphatic systems were free.
Nowadays, it has 2 major schools of thought – the American D.O.s, which are Osteopathic Physicians, are almost identical to M.D.s and take the same time and amount of education and have the same rights. European D.O.s are dedicated manual therapists that function more closely to a chiro or physiotherapist.

Those without the American D.O. designation are not physicians and in Canada are referred to as Osteopathic Manual Therapists to help delineate between the two.

An Osteopathic Manual Therapist helps deal with musculoskeletal issues and movement dysfunction, helping reduce pain through gentle techniques. In addition to this, I use nutrition and corrective exercise, along with education in pain science to help patients understand their chronic pain, manage their pain, and to create strategies to help deal with that pain
