Massage Therapy in St. Albert
Defined as the manipulation of the body’s soft tissues, massage therapy is a great way to enhance any chiropractic, physical therapy, or acupuncture treatment. It is also a great therapeutic solution to relieve chronic muscle tension. Massage therapy has been used to treat anxiety in people suffering from chronic illnesses like cancer and to reduce the physiological effects of stress, fatigue, sleep disorders, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, and lower back pain.
Massage therapy works by stimulating nerve fibres in your muscular, nervous, and circulatory systems to produce a therapeutic effect on your body. The goal is to relax your muscle tissues so that your nerves will return to an uncompressed state and continue their normal mode of operation without being inhibited by pain.
Massage Town is located on the second level of the Health by Hamdon clinic. As we grew to offer more and more massage treatments, Dr. Hamdon decided that it was time to create a branch specifically to service our massage clients. Thus, Massage Town was born to provide our clients with a specific and individualized healing experience with its own name and brand.
