massage therapy in Guelph and Orangeville
what is massage therapy?
Massage therapy at iON focuses on optimizing functional movement and athletic recovery. Each session starts by taking a thorough history to determine the source of your pain and movement restrictions. Once discovered, our massage therapists utilize a combination of deep tissue techniques that will work best for your specific case. These include advanced techniques such as Myofascial Cupping, Electro-Acupuncture and Fascial Stretch Therapy.
These techniques are designed to target your body’s soft tissue, including muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, nerves and joints. They work by stimulating blood flow and nutrients to the tissues to promote healing and flush out metabolic waste products that cause pain. By targeting these specific tissues, massage therapy can alleviate discomfort that results from occupational stresses, muscular over-use, and many acute or chronic pain conditions. This can also improve athletic performance by increasing flexibility and accelerating the recovery process. When paired with stretching and exercises, our massage therapists provide you with the tools needed to have lasting benefits after each session.
At iON, we integrate massage therapy into our neurofunctional approach to care. This advanced approach focuses assessing and treating the nervous system, which is responsible for muscle activation and pain sensation. By utilizing this approach, we are able to more accurately diagnose and treat the root cause of your symptoms. This allows our team to provide you with effective treatment solutions that work together across multiple disciplines. It is our goal to provide you with collaborative treatment, training and nutrition services that help you reach your health + performance goals!
