Massage therapy is an effective way to treat many physical ailments, including back pain, whiplash, and sciatica. Nova Physiotherapy has been providing massage therapy in the Halifax area to clients since 2004. We now have three clinics to serve you – in Bedford, Dartmouth, and Timberlea.
Massage Therapy is the manipulation of the body’s soft tissues to achieve a desired therapeutic response. It enhances the function of joints and muscles, improves blood and lymph circulation, and helps relieve stress and pain.

What to expect from your massage therapy sessions
Initial treatment is typically one hour and involves a detailed physical assessment, intake of medical history, and a hands-on treatment to determine your tissue health. Later visits can be 30 or 40 minutes, or perhaps as long as 90 minutes, depending on what treatment is agreed upon by you and your therapist.
The appropriate removal of clothing will be discussed by your therapist. During the course of the treatment, you will be covered by a sheet. The only uncovered area will be where the therapist is treating you at any given moment.
