What is a Therapeutic Massage?

We all know what to expect from a relaxation massage. As implied we expect to enjoy the calm and relaxing experience of soft music and total me time. But what is a deep tissue Therapeutic Massage we hear so much about? What does it do? Why would I want one? To help you make an informed decision let’s investigate a Therapeutic Massage. Let’s look at the Who, What, Where and Why of a Therapeutic Massage.

  • Who is it about? Who benefits?
  • What does it do for you?
  • Where is this taking place? Where should you go to learn more?
  • Why is this important in the big picture? Why should you care?

Let’s start our investigation:


Massage therapy consists primarily of hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, specifically, the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints for the purpose of optimizing health. Therapeutic Massage Therapists are well trained clinicians who support the therapeutic teams of Physiotherapists, Manual Osteopathic Therapists and Chiropractors helping clients regain their health. In Alberta all massage therapists must have graduated from a 2200 hour accredited massage program. Clients can relax knowing they are in well trained clinician hands and will receive the best of care.


Therapeutic Massage is a collection of different techniques using the therapist’s hands or tools to help increase circulation, ease muscle tension, decrease muscle tightness, and improve soft tissue mobility.

Therapeutic Massage is for any person suffering from tight and tense muscles preventing the ability to truly relax and find relief from daily, achy, stiff, tight muscles. It is a proven fact that the inability to relax will cause irritability and a drain of energy. Therapeutic Massage will relieve the chronic stress, constant muscle tension and nagging fatigue for anyone suffering from these symptoms. This allows you to live each day as your best self. Some of the common techniques include Deep friction Therapy, Myofacial Release, treatment of TMJD, three different types of sports massage for each stage of an athletes training / events and muscle lengthening stretches and traction techniques to help support joint health.


At Nose Creek Sport Physiotherapy we design a customized treatment plan for each of our clients ensuring their return to health. Therapeutic Massage is used at different stages of our client’s treatment plan depending on their needs. It may be to insure our client is ready to perform their exercises and receive their manipulations or techniques on the structural side of their treatment. It may be used to relax sore muscles after doing their exercises. As a therapeutic massage stimulates blood flow it helps a client have the proper muscle condition allowing advancement to the next level of their exercise treatment plan.

Our clinicians have several techniques that address many issues to help calm client’s nervous systems down in the acute phase (lymphatic drainage).  They provide stabilization techniques midway through their treatment plan and stimulus techniques at the end of their treatment. Once a client has finished their treatment plan continuing a monthly massage is often used as a maintenance plan for clients with chronic injuries that benefit from regular help. When the massage therapist notes the beginning of a problem the early detection and referral back to the specialized therapist often prevents the onset of another acute injury.


Why should you choose Nose Creek Sport Physiotherapy for your Therapeutic Massage, or any massage for that matter? The truth is there are many massage therapist, and good ones offering Therapeutic Massage. We offer Therapeutic Massage by great clinicians however, that is not the reason you should give us a try. The reason for choosing us is Therapeutic Massage is not a stand-alone cure. It always works best as part of a treatment plan designed by a specialized therapist, and we have some of the best. You should try us because our Massage Therapists are part of an awesome specialized team of therapists with a proven track record of success in this community. We are unique with a wide range of experience and different techniques to suit all the problems and conditions out there.

Our clinicians offer great Therapeutic Massage but they are also accomplished at:

  • Relaxation Massage
  • Hot Stone Massage
  • Cupping
  • Pre/Post Natal Massage
  • Indian Head Massage
  • Sport Massage

Our masterful clinicians work their magic on muscle aches, joint pains, frequent headaches, tension, daily fatigue, difficulty relaxing, as well as helping you master getting a good night’s sleep.

As a society we are looking for ways to eliminate our dependency on the very addictive drugs prescribed for pain management and many of the problems already listed. As often the case a healthier alternative way to help or eliminate many of these problems has been around long before the prescribed meds. Therapeutic Massage is a natural, time proven, enjoyable, way of dealing with many of our health issues. For people looking to naturally manage their chronic pain, massage therapy can improve quality of life by improving mood as well as managing their pain.  When you live with chronic pain having a tool-box of strategies to turn to for pain relief is important. Massage can be a powerful tool for relaxing both mind and body. Often the results are longer lasting because you are getting the cause of your tension and tightness resolved instead of just popping a pill to mask the symptoms. We have trained and worked extensively in Calgary and have earned lifelong clients who return to us on a weekly or monthly basis because they love how we help them de-stress, relieve their muscle tension and give them back their energy.

You are cordially invited to an hour vacation on our massage table. Your vacation will help you find relief from the day-to-day grind, melt your knots into supple soft tissue and allow you to re-discover what relaxation really means!
