What do massage therapists do?

Our team of physiotherapists and massage therapists work collaboratively to provide comprehensive rehabilitation to encourage faster healing and maximal recovery from pain and injury. Registered massage therapy services are generally covered by most Extended Health Benefit Plans. Our therapists are also registered with Blue Cross for direct billing for RCMP and Veterans Affairs clients.

Massage Therapy, Orleans Physiotherapist

Why see a registered massage therapist?

Our clinic is located in the same building as Ottawa Medical Group, one of Ottawa’s leading Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB/GYN), and Urology clinics. As such, our relationship and collaborative treatment plans for pregnant & post-delivery clients, along with our therapists’ training and experience (over 15 years), ensure you receive individualized result-driven care.

Massage During Pregnancy

For pregnancy massage treatments, our massage therapists use the bodyCushionTM system, which allows you to be treated lying on your stomach (prone), if you wish, and helps reduce the tension and load on your joints, belly, and breasts. This opportunity for many of our clients feels great and a is a nice change to the standard sleep positions limitations faced in the later stages of pregnancy.
