Coquitlam Registered Massage Therapy

Whether you are suffering from a muscle strain, spasm, soreness or tightness, our skilled massage therapists can create a personalized treatment plan to help address your concerns.

Is registered massage therapy right for you?

While massage is often thought of as a relaxing luxury, it can actually be a powerful tool for treating a variety of medical conditions. Registered massage therapists (RMTs) are highly trained professionals who have completed extensive coursework in human anatomy and physiology. As a result, they are able to provide treatments that target specific areas of the body to relieve pain, improve range of motion, and promote healing. Whether you are suffering from muscle strain, spasm, soreness, or tightness, an RMT can create a personalized treatment plan to help address your concerns. In addition, many insurance plans now cover massage therapy services, making it more accessible than ever before.

There are many benefits to massage therapy, which is why it is becoming an increasingly popular form of treatment. Massage therapy can not only help you when you are ailing, it can also alleviate tension and increase blood flow to help prevent injury. Registered massage therapy is perfect for clients who are seated for work, perform repetitive movements, are involved in strenuous activity, work in a stressful environment or have suffered an acute injury. By relieving tension and increasing circulation, massage therapy can help reduce the risk of developing more serious health problems down the road.

What should you expect for your initial assessment?

When you schedule your first appointment with a registered massage therapist, they will start by asking about your medical history and any areas of concern. They will then develop a treatment plan that is specifically tailored to your needs. One of the things that they will ask you about is the amount of pressure that you would like to be used during the massage. Thereafter, they will step out to give you a chance to get undressed to your level of comfort and get on the bed under the sheets. The therapist will knock before coming back in. During the massage, they will ensure that the sheets are covering you at all times. If you would prefer to be fully clothed, just let the therapist know and they will be happy to accommodate you.

If you have any specific areas that are causing pain or discomfort, the therapist will focus on those areas. By tailoring the massage to your individual needs, the therapist can help you to achieve the best possible results.

How often should I get a massage?

Massage therapy is an effective treatment for a variety of conditions, from headaches and TMJ to chronic pain and stress. While the frequency of massages will vary depending on your specific needs, most people will benefit from one massage per month. This gives the body time to respond to the treatments and allows for long-term changes to be made. Of course, if you are dealing with a more acute condition, your massage therapist may recommend more frequent sessions. And if your schedule only allows for massages every few weeks or months, that is perfectly fine as well. The important thing is to listen to your body and work with your massage therapist to find a treatment plan that works for you.

What should I expect after the massage?

It’s not uncommon to feel some muscle soreness after a massage. Massage triggers a release of lactic acid stored in tight muscles, which can create a temporary feeling of soreness. Many people enjoy post-massage heightened energy levels and an increased range of motion. If you experience discomfort after your massage, it is important to drink plenty of water to flush out the toxins that have been released from your muscles. You may also want to apply ice to any particularly sore areas. In most cases, the soreness will dissipate within a day or two. So if you’re feeling a little soreness after your next massage, don’t worry – it’s perfectly normal. Just enjoy the extra energy and increased range of motion while it lasts.

Have you been in a car accident?

If you’ve been in an accident, your first step should be to book an initial assessment with us. We accept patients regardless of who was at fault for the accident, and we’ll provide full coverage for your assessment. During your assessment, our team will gather information about your injuries and create a treatment plan. We’ll also work with you to file any insurance claims that may be necessary. Getting started on your road to recovery is easy–simply book your initial assessment online and mention the accident on the intake form.

Being a full service medical clinic, we have extensive history working with ICBC. If your accident occurred within 12 weeks, you can simply call or book with us online for your appointment. You don’t need a referral from your doctor, and we’ll send a report directly to ICBC. Our team of specialists are experienced in handling ICBC claims and will ensure that you’re on the road to recovery as soon as possible. We understand that the aftermath of an accident can be stressful, so we’ll take care of all the paperwork and red tape for you. All you need to do is focus on getting better.

If you’ve been in an accident and it’s been more than 12 weeks, or you’ve seen another adjustor for your current claim, please contact us. We’ll need your accident claim number, the date of the accident, and the name of your ICBC adjustor (if possible) so we can get you the coverage you need.

Is massage therapy safe during pregnancy?

As any expectant mother knows, pregnancy can be a time of great physical and emotional ups and downs. From morning sickness and fatigue to back pain and new aches and pains, there’s a lot to adjust to. Luckily, registered massage therapy can be a great way to help relieve some of the discomforts of pregnancy. Massage therapy can help to reduce muscle tension, ease stiffness and pain, and promote relaxation. It’s important to let your massage therapist know that you are pregnant, so they can adapt their techniques accordingly. In general, it’s best to avoid massage on the belly area, and aromatherapy oils should be avoided as well, as some of them can be unsafe during pregnancy.

Will my insurance provider cover my massage therapy session?

Because massage therapy is a recognized health care treatment, most extended plans cover massage therapy. It’s best to check with your insurance provider before your appointment to see how much is covered and whether you require a doctor’s note in advance for reimbursement purposes.

At Manhas Health Co., we understand that getting the care you need shouldn’t be a hassle. That’s why we’re proud to offer direct billing for most major insurance providers. If your insurance company isn’t set up for direct billing with us, don’t worry – we accept all major credit cards as well. So come see us today and get the care you deserve. We’ll make sure the process is simple and straightforward, so you can focus on what’s important: feeling better.

Elizabeth Goldstone

"Dr. Gates Manhas is my primary care physician and she's the best doctor I've ever had. She is a compassionate listener and she always does a fantastic job of walking me through her thought process of a diagnosis, and always offers great advice and clear explanation of treatment options/testing. Can't recommend her enough!"

Katie De Sousa

"We’ve been patients of Dr. Amritpaul Manhas for almost 2 years. He’s so caring, what a rare thing is to find a doctor that listens. His colleagues are the exact same way. The clinic is big, well equipped, and everything works well. Manhas Medical has been my best medical experience since moving to Canada in 2014. I really appreciate you all and I’m grateful to have found you, Dr. Paul."
