Registered massage therapy can help with pain and stress
Massage therapy is a treatment that requires hands-on pressure to the muscles to lower pain, discomfort, muscle spasms, and stress.
The following conditions may benefit from massage:
- Neck injuries, such as whiplash
- Sport and work related injuries
- Overuse/repetitive strain
- Back injuries
- Arthritic pain
- Post fracture
How Altum Health can take care of these symptoms
At Altum Health, all massage therapists are registered by the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario. This means that all our massage therapists have to abide by the standards of this college.
Altum Health’s registered massage therapists use their knowledge of the body to combine massage techniques with exercise to provide the best treatment.
Massage creates a heightened supply of oxygen and nutrients to the muscle tissue, improving its ability to move and relax.
Massage therapy encourages the natural healing process of the body. It works well with other types of treatment offered at Altum Health.

Do we need a doctor’s referral to seek physiotherapy services?
You do not need a doctor’s referral for physiotherapy. However, if you are going to use your health insurance to cover the cost of therapy, the insurance provider may ask you for a doctor’s referral.
How can I be sure that physiotherapy is right or my health problem?
Physiotherapy focuses on removing the cause of the problem as opposed to superficially treating the symptoms. This process may take some time, but the results are often more permanent with less chance of the disorder returning.
What can I expect on my first appointment with a physiotherapist?
Although each clinic’s approach to intake, assessment and therapy do vary, generally speaking your physiotherapist will ask a series of questions that will help better describe all of your symptoms in detail. Your physiotherapist can then carry out your assessment. The physiotherapist will examine you physically and discuss the findings, the cause of the problem, and suggest a solution that can effectively treat your health problem.
How long does each physiotherapy session last?
Appointment usually takes about an hour for a full assessment. Subsequent treatments can be shorter or longer depending upon the condition and the treatment required. Subsequent physiotherapy treatments can be twenty to thirty minutes in length.
