At Shift, Massage therapy is frequently used to compliment additional concussion rehab. Massage therapy is an extremely beneficial treatment for a variety of conditions ranging from physical injuries to emotional and environmental stress that can negatively affect your health due to a concussion.
Additionally, having a massage will allow you to take that "you" time that many of us simply do not take. The duration of your massage treatment is about you. By making the massage all about you, it will help you to centre yourself, relax physically and emotionally, and allow you to forget about things that don't need to be worried about. Being centred will help you to cope with issues differently by allowing you to be removed from them for a period of time and come back to them refreshed.
Our massage therapists combine techniques such as active release techniques, Swedish massage techniques, myofascial release, and craniosacral therapy. If there is a specific therapy that you are interested in please call our clinic to find out who is best suited for you.
