Registered Massage Therapists (RMT)
Integracare facilitates aging well at home. Not only does aging well at home include Nursing Care and support for illnesses, chronic conditions and pain, it often includes specialized services such as Massage Therapy.
Massage Therapy is effective as a therapy for almost any condition that includes a stress component. Conditions including pain and muscle tension in the back, neck, and shoulder; fatigue; stress injuries; headaches and migraines; and anxiety and depression can all be helped by Massage Therapy as part of home health care in Toronto and Mississauga.
Why Massage Therapy Is a Key Component of Home Health Care
The sedentary lifestyle of those in wheelchairs can cause poor circulation. Prolonged positioning can also result in pressure sores. The therapeutic touch provided by an RMT can be particularly helpful if one is in a wheelchair or has limited mobility. Massage Therapy as part of home health care in Toronto and Mississauga will increase blood flow to the muscles, eliminating toxins and improving healing times for injuries.
Reduced mobility leads to poor circulation and nerve function that results in degeneration, the shortening of muscles and rigidness in joints that cannot straighten normally. Massage helps shortened muscles with gentle stretching. As stress and tension is relieved, minor physical ailments sometimes disappear. Integracare Registered Massage Therapists will provide all of these services in the comfort, convenience and privacy of our Clients’ homes.
Home health care in Toronto and Mississauga should include Massage Therapy which will improve you or loved one’s quality of life.
Additional Benefits of Massage Therapy
