Registered Massage Therapy
A Registered Massage Therapist is trained to treat a variety of conditions and they can be a great complement alongside other healthcare treatment options. At Marpole Physio, our RMT, Lauren McAdam, approaches massage therapy with evidence-based research and technical rigor, desiring tangible results that can be seen and felt by patients at the end of each treatment.
With a foundational goal of reducing stress to help the body heal, Lauren’s treatment style always includes a component of relaxation. To achieve patient goals, she uses orthopedic physical assessment to check posture, range of motion, muscle tone, pain factors, or neurological symptoms to pinpoint problem areas. Her therapeutic techniques include myofascial release, joint mobilizations, facilitated stretching, trigger point release, Swedish massage, neurogenic pain education, manual lymph drainage and more. Each session finishes with reassessment and home care, where she will demonstrate specific exercises, provide hydrotherapy instructions if necessary, or simply advise on postural education. Lauren encourages her patients to provide lots of feedback, as it enables her to give the best possible treatment for each individual.
