Our Registered Massage Therapists are registered with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO).
Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints. Overall, massage therapy can help to reduce muscle tension, decrease stress, improve sleep and help with pain relief for any age starting from infancy.
At Rooted Family, we provide registered massage therapy for all family members and can help support you and/or your child through various stages of life including pregnancy massage and massage therapy for infants/children.
There are many reasons you can and should visit a Registered Massage Therapist. Beyond the relaxation aspect of a massage, our therapists are trained to treat various conditions. These include:
For babies and children, common concerns our RMTs address are feeding issues, constipation/gas, torticollis, growing pains, stress, repetitive strain, postural, sensory awareness.
For adults, including those who are pregnant, postpartum or on their fertility journey, common concerns we address are back and pelvic pain, sciatica, leg cramps, sleep issues, carpal tunnel, swelling, TMJ disorders, scar tissues, myofascial release and stress management.
Our RMT Kelly Watter-Gibbons also provides contemporary acupuncture as well as craniosacral therapy which is a light-touch approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. Babies/children with certain conditions can benefit such as: tongue and lip ties, colic/reflux, digestive disorders, feeding issues, seizures, torticollis & plagiocephaly, ADD & ADHD, autism, chronic ear infection, sensory processing and more. Adults benefit from craniosacral for the following conditions: migraines, headaches, chronic neck and back pain, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, TMJ syndrome, scoliosis, PTSD and more.
Our RMTs work in collaboration with our other practitioners in order to help you and your family achieve your wellness goals.
