What Is Advanced Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy is the assessment and planned treatment of soft tissue (muscles, ligaments, tendons) and the joints of the body. It provides relief and prevention of physical dysfunction and pain. Therapists apply soft tissue manipulation and some joint mobilization techniques to assist the body’s efforts to heal and relieve pain.
Our therapists are all certified in the 2200 hour program and are constantly upgrading by taking extra continued educational courses. They all have extensive knowledge of the human body and are trained in how best to treat all musculoskeletal conditions and dysfunctions.
Currently in Alberta, not all massage therapists are trained in the same manner. Our massage therapists have undergone the highest level of training and therefore our clinic is able to be billed under extended medical coverage, WCB claims and MVA claims.
Forms Of Treatment
Light, smooth, gliding techniques are used to ease muscle tension and help relax sore and tight muscles. A must to help soothe away any tensions of the day.
Therapeutic/Orthopedic Massage Therapy
Massage therapy generally starts with a full body assessment and will focus mainly on treating any injury or painful areas the patient may be concerned about. Using different techniques and methods, the therapist will target and focus on the dysfunctional muscle to help eliminate pain, increase range of motion and balance out the human body.
This treatment may take a few sessions and usually stretches and/or exercises may be recommended for home. Two of our practitioners are also trained in an intra-oral technique to address TMJ syndrome.
Deep Tissue Massage
Active Back to Health is proud to offer deep tissue massage in Calgary and nearby. Using firmer pressure, the therapist will target certain muscles that may cause dysfunction and restricted range of motion causing pain in the body.
Hot Stone Massage
The ultimate in relaxation. Enjoy de-stressing with hot stones being placed on certain points on the body, while the therapist massages key areas with them to help soothe aching and tired muscles.
A gentle type of massage used to help naturally stimulate the lymphatic system. This will help detoxify and eliminate waste products in the body. This treatment is very useful in patients with swelling, immune conditions or reduced circulation.

This is a massage treatment that incorporates stimulating specific acupressure points on the feet. Through application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body.
