It’s Massage Therapy Awareness Week! From the RMTAO website:
“Massage therapy is a clinically-oriented health care option that can provide relief from the musculoskeletal pain and discomfort that can come from every day activities, such as sitting too much, pushing too hard at your favourite sport, or carrying around a heavy bag. Massage therapy is a regulated health profession in Ontario and massage therapy should only be performed by a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT). All Ontarians can visit an RMT of their choice, without prescription or referral.”
To celebrate, we’ll be posting each day about the benefits of seeing an RMT.
One thing you may seek some treatment for is strain caused by housework. The repetitive motions, twisting and turning can take a toll on your body, including the low back pain that many experience as the results of chores. You can also get a treatment plan which will reduce pain and improve function, as well as tips for reducing the strain caused by doing chores!
