As we get ready for a return to our “Normal Routine” and leave behind the busy days of the holidays, with the hustle and bustle of travel, special occasions and family get-togethers it’s no wonder we might feel a bit “Out of Sorts”.

Let’s face it. The Holiday season can be very stressful. It should come as no surprise we might feel muscle tension around our head, neck and shoulders.

As well as being physically active, getting the right amount of sleep and eating a well-balanced diet, massage therapy can be helpful in getting your body and mind back to a more comfortable routine.

The Registered Massage Therapists’ Association of Ontario (RMTAO), of which we are a member, states that massage therapy, administered by a Registered Massage Therapist can help in many ways:

·       Relieve Neck Pain

·       Relieve or Diminish Headache Intensity and Frequency

·       Helps improve quality of life

According to Jules Poulin, RMT in her article in Massage Therapy Today Fall 2023, “The role of RMTs in rehabilitation of the head and neck can be one of tremendous value for patients who have been seeking guidance and relief for their symptoms.”
