What is massage therapy?
At the Calgary PRP and Pain Clinic, massage therapy involves the manipulation of the body’s soft tissues by a certified, experienced Registered Massage Therapist (RMT). Massage therapy involves using different pressures, movements and techniques with the goal of increasing range of motion, relieving pain, and allowing the functional healing of your muscles and improving recovery.
