Before beginning treatment, we’ll create your personalized treatment plan based on your physical assessment and health history. Our professional massage therapists employ a wide range of techniques, including relaxing Swedish massage, as well as Trigger Point Therapy, which targets tight areas within your muscle tissue that can cause pain in parts of your body.
At FIT Physiotherapy Newmarket, we specialize in Craniosacral Therapy and Visceral Manipulation Therapy. Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle technique that focuses on the bones of the head, spinal column and sacrum; while Visceral Manipulation involves a soft manipulation of restrictions in your abdomen and pelvis, which promotes normal movement and function of your internal organs.
Each person’s desire for pressure during massage is different, and we encourage you to communicate with us throughout the treatment, so that we can adjust our techniques based on your level of pain tolerance. The treatment can be gentler or more forceful depending on your preferences, and always remember that we can stop at any time if it becomes uncomfortable for you.
