Massage Therapy

Sometimes, daily living can do a number on our bodies — but the good news is therapeutic massage is an extremely effective treatment. Massage therapists at Glen Sather offer service to the community at large, as well as to U of A faculty, staff and students.

Conditions Treated

Address specific health needs and accelerate your recovery. Our therapeutic massage services complement and enhance other therapies to target specific areas of your body for comprehensive healing. We can treat:

  • A specific trauma (e.g., motor vehicle accident and athletic injury)
  • Overuse pain (e.g., occupational injuries, tendonitis and repetitive strain)
  • Conditions developed over time (e.g., headaches, arthritis and fibromyalgia)

Massage therapists have expanded and evolved their role in preventive and rehabilitative expertise, adapting techniques to improve a wide variety of ailments. At Glen Sather, our therapists combine their assessment skills and knowledge of physiology with their personal experience — providing you with a strong treatment plan and effective care.

Therapeutic Massage Services

  • Education about proper posture and harmful repetitive strain patterns
  • Remedial exercises to assist in the prevention and treatment of certain conditions
  • Therapeutic massage treats all systems of the body to help relax muscles — improving circulation, reducing pain and decreasing the chance of injury or dysfunction for better overall health
