Toronto Massage Therapists Harness the Body’s Ability to Heal Itself

Clients who go to an established wellness clinic in downtown Toronto can expect to receive top class service and attention. Taking a holistic view of health, alternate medicine services extend to a range of treatments including osteopathy and acupuncture. These services can be combined with treatments by Toronto massage therapists. The goal of such treatments is to cure and address the overall well-being of a patient in order to achieve long-lasting health benefits.

Is Alternative Medicine Safe?

The sheer variety of treatments on offer cater to many health issues that may not have been examined deeply by the family doctor or hospital emergency department. Most seek alternative medical treatment because they desire to address the root cause of a problem, want to take active steps to minimise the effects of a current condition, or want to avoid serious health issues in the future, preferably through non-invasive solutions. Massage, osteopathy and acupuncture hold the key to recovery for many who have testified to their success. The vast majority of practitioners and clinics hold high standards, and produce extensive college qualifications, recognised institute memberships, and/or medical training certificates which can be researched before a client visits a Toronto downtown massageand wellness clinic.

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy could be considered a form of massage with underlying principles connecting the bodies’ natural functions with the internal connective structures that make the body function as a whole. The goal of osteopathy is to treat physical pains and strains with palpation—a form of therapy designed to stimulate the immune system function. In Toronto, massage therapists trained in the art of osteopathy and qualified through a college practitioner course may perform osteopathic treatment. Physiology and biomechanical principles are learned by practitioners, alongside the study of the skeletal system.

What is Acupuncture?

The principles of acupuncture are over 3,000 years old. Originating in China, acupuncture generally uses a series of needles, strategically placed onto the body, which the practitioner subtly moves and inserts. During a period of rest, the placement needles are designed to release or alleviate blocked flows of the body’s energy, or Qi, relevant to a specific health issue.

Wellness centers in downtown Toronto, such as Sage Healthy and Wellness Clinic, Inc., have therapists that specialize in acupuncture, osteopathy, massage, and other holistic treatments that harness your body’s ability to heal itself, to provide long-lasting and natural solutions to any pain and discomfort that you may be suffering.
