Benefits of Massage Therapy

Useful for all of the conditions listed below and more, massage can:

  •  Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion.
  •  Assist with shorter, easier labor for expectant mothers and shorten maternity hospital stays.
  • Ease medication dependence.
  • Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body’s natural defense system.
  • Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
  • Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts.
  • Improve the condition of the body’s largest organ—the skin.
  • Increase joint flexibility.
  • Lessen depression and anxiety.
  • Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.
  •  Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.
  • Reduce post-surgery adhesions and swelling.
  • Reduce spasms and cramping.
  • Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.
  • Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller.
  • Relieve migraine pain.

Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress. This translates into:

  • Decreased anxiety.
  • Enhanced sleep quality. 
  • Greater energy.
  • Improved concentration.
  •  Increased circulation.
  • Reduced fatigue.

About Dr. Taal Bastien, Naturopathic DoctorHeadShotTaal

My love of medicine comes from a deep seeded desire to help people become the best version of themselves they can be. I know first hand how easy it is to lose touch with who we are and become lost in the daily grind. But I can also attest to the joy that comes from reconnecting with your passion and then taking steps to manifest it. So in addition to helping people heal their physical ailments, I know how vital it is to work with them on a mental and emotional level as well. Naturopathic medicine is built on this fundamental principle; as only by treating the whole person can true healing occur.

I look forward to working with a variety of patients, but I have a keen interest in chronic pain, chronic disease, hormonal balance, weight loss, and healthy aging. Using nutritional and lifestyle counselling, supplementation, botanical medicine, acupuncture, physical manipulation, intravenous support, peri-neural & prolotherapy, in conjunction with my prescriptive authority, my goal is to create treatment plans that use the best possible therapies to address each patient’s unique concerns. I look forward to working with you on clarifying your goals and providing tools with which to achieve them.
