ABOUT MASSAGE THERAPY

Massage therapy consists primarily of hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, specifically, the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints for the purpose of optimizing health.

Massage therapy treatment has a therapeutic effect on the body and optimizes health and well-being by acting on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. Physical function can be developed, maintained and improved; and physical dysfunction and pain and the effects of stress can be relieved or prevented through the use of Massage Therapy.

Modern massage techniques can be traced back to the 1700s and the development of Swedish massage, the first systematic method of therapeutic massage based on physiology. Today’s Massage Therapists use their knowledge of anatomy and physiology to combine traditional Swedish and modern Massage Therapy techniques with exercise and other therapies to treat their clients.

YOUR TREATMENT

Before a treatment, your Massage Therapist will propose a personalized treatment plan based on an initial assessment and health history. The assessment consists of various tests to determine the condition of your muscles and joints. Any personal and health information you provide to your Massage Therapists completely confidential and will be safeguarded. Your health record cannot be released or transferred without your written consent.

Your Massage Therapist must also obtain your consent to work on any part of your body, regardless of whether you are fully clothed, or fully or partially covered with sheets or blankets. Your privacy will always be respected, and you may withdraw your consent for treatment at any time.

Various specialized movements of the hands, over the skin or clothes, make up the Massage Therapy treatment. The Massage Therapist will work with your level of pain tolerance during the treatment, and the treatment can be stopped at any time should the treatment become uncomfortable.

Massage therapy is not covered by OHIP, but many private insurance companies cover treatment from a Massage Therapist as part of their extended healthcare plans. Please consult your policy.

YOUR THERAPIST, BETTY

BETTY LUONGBefore becoming a RMT in Toronto in 2015, she was a holistic practitioner in France since 2006 and performed Swedish massage, Deep tissue massage and Thai Massage, Ayurvedic massage. Working in Paris helped her to understand patients’ busy and stressful lifestyle and challenges. After she immigrated to Canada she went to school to study Nursing for 2 years at College Boreal in Toronto and massage therapy for 10 months at Kikkawa College. Thanks to her education and experiences in France and in Toronto she is able to understand and provide a customized and efficient treatment.

Being a former gymnast for about 10 years, she definitely understands sports injuries, acute and or chronic pain. She had treated several Martial arts practitioners (Kick Boxing, Mua Thai, Ju jistu, krav Maga), runner, and tennis players and so on… Martial art as any sport is a discipline like gymnastics which are both physical and mental so, she understands the importance of balance between the body and the mind that each practitioner wants to maintain and cultivate for his/her practice.

Through her practice, she strives to learn new techniques and understand human being’s conditions, motion and lifestyle in order to tailor treatments as she believes each person is UNIQUE. She focuses on well- being a philosophy that puts the patients first.

One day someone asked her what was her interest? And she replied: “The Human Being well – being” which include also my own well – being.

Her motto: everyone deserves to be happy. As a massage therapist, she believes that everyone deserves to be treated thoroughly. Also, her wish is that everyone can take care of themselves happily.

When she is not treating patients, she enjoys discovering new trek around the world, cooking vegan dishes for friends and family, riding a bicycle around Toronto, swimming, dancing and offering her time in volunteering jobs.
