The very BEST in Massage Therapy is right here at Balance Chiropractic and Massage of Kanata!

 

massage1Massage therapy is a drug-free approach to treating acute and chronic pain as well as stress related tension. Massage has a therapeutic effect on your body’s systems, including the muscular, circulatory and nervous system and is beneficial in the management of many conditions including; headaches, stiff and sore muscles, ligament and scar tissue repair, pregnacy, performance enhancing, mobility, and etc.  Massage is not a one size fits all type of approach.  Depending on your health goals, the massage can be tailored to suit your health needs.  Below explains in brief detail the types of massage that we offer at Balance Chiropractic and Massage.

 

Relaxation Massage

A Relaxation Treatment uses Swedish Massage combined with gentile fascial work and stretching to release muscles, tendons and ligaments.  A Relaxation Treatment reduces pain, relieves chronic muscle tension, increases circulation, promotes relaxation and calming effects to the body, and can help in dealing with stress.

 

Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic Massage is treatment that is more focused on dealing with a specific issue or injury.  The pressure and technique will vary depending on the individual, but the goal is resolution of the issue.

 

It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as a stiff neck, back and shoulders, TMJ, Sciatica, Tendonitis, and other overuse injuries.  The treatment can be uncomfortable depending on varying degrees of depth that the therapist may need to go, so communicate with your therapist during the treatment and be sure to report any lasting discomfort post-treatment.

 

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage is a therapy in which warmed stones are used as tools to aid in the massage and maximize the therapeutic benefit. The stones used are smooth river rock-surfaced stones made of basalt that contain a high iron content in which helps the stones retain heat during the massage. Hot stone massages are beneficial on both physical and psychological levels.  The heat from the stones helps your muscles relax, allowing the massage therapist to manipulate your deep tissues more effectively. While all types of massage can help relieve pain caused by tense muscles, stiff joints or injuries, a hot stone massage may provide greater relief due to the intense nature of the massage. Because the hot stones allow the massage therapist to penetrate deeper, you may find that a hot stone massage leaves you feeling physically less tense than many other stress relieving modalities.

When myself, my sister, and my father first met Dr. Pope we knew very little about what a chiropractor did and we weren't even sure if we would have any benefit from it, but your treatments and personalized care has made such a huge difference to all of us and relieved us from issues such as lower and upper back pain, headaches, postural correction, and stress reduction. We've also benefited from the personalised attention that you give and the extent you go to help us understand and educate us on the true meaning of a healthy nervous system.

Thanks,

I came to Dr. Pope doubled-over with acute back pain after suffering a disc herniation. I had been suffering from lower back pain on and off for several years and though that by ignoring it, the pain would simply go away. Dr. Pope quickly assessed the situation and began me on a course of treatment that not only resolved the back pain issues, but also treated other issues in my hips and feet that were contributing to the pain and postural alterations that I had been suffering from for all these years. Dr. Pope's holistic approach to chiropractic care not only resolved my immediate pain issues, it gave me the tools I needed to prevent a re-occurrence of the same problem in the future.

I’ve been through a variety of treatments for my back problems (Schuermann’s disorder, scolosis, and a herniated disc), and none have shown me much progress until I was introduced to Dr. Ryan Pope. Under his chiropractic care, I have had noticeable improvements in my back – a reduction of pain, and an improvement in my mobility. My wife and I both see him for maintance care and we continually recommend him to all of our friends and family.

I would like to thank Dr. Pope for his skilled and proficient chiropractic care. Over the past year I have enjoyed increased mobility and flexibility, a significant reduction in neck and back pain and a greater overall sense of well-being. I have recommended Dr. Pope to several people that are looking to take their health to the next level but do not know where to begin.
Thanks,

When I first met Dr. Pope, I had been suffering from debilitating back pain and was told that I would probably require surgery to alleviate the pain. As an aspiring firefighting student, back surgery would have ended my career before it even started. Dr. Pope was able to alleviate my pain completely and restore full mobility. I continue to see Dr. Pope regularly because he helps me to train at the top of my potential, and feel my best. He may not have saved my life, but he definitely saved my livelihood.

I began to see Dr. Pope in June 2009 after I experienced sharp pain in my lower back. After receiving intensive treatments to repair the problem, I chose to continue my treatments as a preventative measure. Since receiving treatments I feel stronger and healthier which has had a major impact on my everyday life. I plan on continuing my regular visits with Dr. Pope to take my health to its optimal level and maintain it.
Thanks,

Before going to the Chiropractor, I was having headaches daily, and sometimes to the point of being sick to my stomach, and now I’m going weeks without a headache. This has been a dream come true. Although I'm sure Advil isn't happy that I'm using less, I know I am. Chiropractic care, more importantly, Dr. Pope, has made it possible for me to be Advil free!

When I started under Dr. Pope’s care, I immediately saw results. I was able to sleep, less headaches and over the course of time, less episodes of feeling faint and dizzy, and today, that feeling as completely disappeared. Before I started treatment, I could not get through a night without waking up at least 5 times a night. Now I’m waking up approximately one to two times a night, usually to go to the washroom, but I am able to go back to sleep very quickly. Today, I am able to sleep on my side again, and due to your sleeping seminars, as well as your guidance, I have been able to keep my back relatively calm and in place while getting a good night's sleep. I can also see a difference when I lay down on my back. I feel more...level or balanced. This has made sleep a lot more comfortable. I like to have sleeping options, and now I can sleep on my back or side and not be in agony the next day.
Thanks,

Lindsay

Knowledge is power, and I believe that Dr. Pope has a lot of information to share to the Kanata community about the restoration of health and wellness through the means of chiropractic care.
Thanks,
