Massage Therapy:

More general, can focus on multiple areas of the body. This treatment is usually for people who experience mild discomforts that are associated with muscular tension and joint restrictions.

Active Massage Therapy:

This style of treatment is best suited for someone who is looking to treat a condition or injury. It focuses on rehabilitating injuries and post operative conditions. The main difference between this style of treatment and a regular massage, is that active massage is done with the patient clothed, as opposed to using draping. It will also involve progressive exercises that are tailored to the client’s specific needs and stage of healing.

Having lived in five countries and traveled a lot throughout his life, he also enjoys interacting with patients and sharing life experiences.
