Massage is the systematic and scientific manipulation of soft body tissue. It has been used for thousands of years for relaxation and to restore and promote the good health of both mind and body. Massage reduces stress, relieves physical tension, improves mental response and productivity, aids in the prevention of repetitive stress syndrome (RSS), increases cardiovascular efficiency, enhances the immune system and reduces injury recovery time.
When you choose a registered massage therapist, you are choosing a qualified, skilled, and highly educated health care specialist. The staff of Fraserview Chiropractic and Massage Therapy Clinic have training in Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, neuromuscular therapy, myofascial technique, joint mobilization, hydrotherapy, remedial exercise, anatomy, physiology and pathologies.

We are please to offer the following types of massage therapy:
Rehabilitative – Focuses on specific musculoskeletal dysfunction and systemic conditions. This includes but is not limited to injuries/pain, musculoskeletal injuries, sports massage, musculoskeletal injuries and acute and chronic disease processes.
Relaxation – Massage helps our body and mind to refocus and relax. Squeezing, stretching and kneading, releases tight muscles and natural endorphins. This results in decreased pain, decreased heart rate, increased self-awareness and a sense of claim.
Pediatric – We can provide treatment for youth with special needs (physical and mental) and for a sense of health and well-being. We can offer professional healthy touch when healthy touch is indicated. We are flexible and have many tools for treating the child and youth patients.
Parental consent must be given before treatment can commence. We may ask for a doctor’s referral depending on the condition.
Pregnancy (pre and post partum) – Women in their childbearing year have a host of unique physical challenges. The staff at Fraserview Chiropractic and Massage Therapy are educated and experienced in providing treatment during pregnancy, labour, delivery and postpartum. We want to contribute to your optimal health and function.
