The Importance of Massage Therapy

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.
