Registered Massage Therapy in Port Coquitlam & Port Moody
Everyone loves a massage, right? There is the physical relief in having those knots of tension rubbed until they release that persistent ache you've been feeling. Actually, our registered massage therapy helps Port Coquitlam and Port Moody patients achieve better health, as well as just feeling good. By loosening muscle tension, our registered massage therapists (RMTs) can help your joints work more fluidly, decrease compression on nerves, and improve your range of motion.
Do you need more reasons to book an appointment for massage therapy? Port Coquitlam and Port Moody patients have also found that after visiting an RMT:
- Stress levels are lower. Long-term stress can do damage to your body, so relieving stress is a formidable step toward staying healthy.
- Sleep is improved. If you suffer from insomnia, lower back pain or fibromyalgia, regular massages can help you sleep.
- Anxiety and depression are relieved. We can all use less anxiety in our daily lives, right?
- Pain is relieved. Especially when pain comes from illness or surgery, your body needs to heal. Massage therapy accelerates healing and helps you manage pain. Patients have found relief from the pain of carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, back pain and more.
Massage Therapy: Port Moody & Port Coquitlam
A massage therapy appointment at Momentum Therapeutics is soothing and comfortable. A registered massage therapist will manipulate soft tissues such as muscles, ligaments, tendons and other any other area, such as the joints, that are painful or uncomfortable to you. In this manner, your RMT will alleviate problems caused by muscle overuse, occupational stresses and such. These treatments are now widely considered a beneficial complement to conventional medical treatments.
Open 7 Days a Week to Serve You
At Momentum Therapeutics, we are open 7 days a week for massage therapy for Port Moody and Port Coquitlam patients. We have 11 registered therapists on staff. Our rates are just under the recommended fee guideline determined by the Massage Therapy Association of British Columbia. Online booking is available by clicking on the link on the left menu. Each of our therapist biographies and schedules are shown below.
We do have pregnancy pillows to help the expecting mother get comfortable for all her treatments, even later on in her pregnancy.
A visit with one of our RMT's will include taking a history, performing evaluations if needed and a treatment. We often give remedial exercises after your treatments to help with your recovery. All of our RMT's have graduated from accredited schools so our treatment styles may be different from one another but the focus on the treatment remains unified. On your first visit more time may be used for your history, but this will decrease as your RMT gets to know what your body needs. We offer 30, 45, 60, 75, and 90 and minute treatments. All of our treatments are eligible for reimbursement under your Extended Health Care Plan with your employer. All of our practitioners' biographies are below.

Why a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT)?
Why is it important to be treated by an RMT? At Momentum Therapeutics, we insist on hiring only RMTs for massage therapy because it is a regulated health profession, and:
- They have completed competency-based programs at certified institutions,
- They have completed a required number of clinical hours,
- They have studied anatomy, pathology, neurology, physiology, ethics and other related fields, and
- They must maintain their registration through continuing education.
Policies and guidelines have been set by a governing body to ensure anyone who uses the designation "RMT" fulfils these and other stringent requirements.
