How does Massage Therapy work?Massage techniques may either stimulate or calm the body’s muscles and tissues to create a desired effect.
When massaging soft tissue, electrical signals are transmitted both to the local area and throughout the body. These signals, in combination with the healing properties of touch, help heal damaged muscle, stimulate circulation, clear waste products via the lymphatic system, boost the activity of the immune system, reduce pain and tension, and induce a calming effect.
Massage may also enhance well being by stimulating the release of endorphins (natural painkillers and mood elevators) and reducing levels of certain stress hormones.
Benefits of Massage Therapy
Helps to improve soft tissue function and range of motion.
Helps to decrease delayed onset muscle soreness and swelling.
Helps to improve exercise performance as well as a decrease in fatigue.

I highly recommend South Vancouver Physio clinic! The staff are extremely welcoming and friendly. Deepika S has been treating my knee injury and after the first few sessions with her I could already see an improvement. She really takes her time and listens to you to understand where the problem areas are. She is great and I highly recommend seeing her.

When I first attended South Vancouver Physiotherapy Clinic in 2016 I could barely lift my hand. Thanks to Deepika that has changed. The minute you walk in for your treatment there is a sense of warmth and genuine caring. Deepika is very kind and friendly and always takes her time. After every session, I feel the tremendous benefit of her treatment with the heavy feeling in my hand disappearing. She gives fantastic professional advice and Physio sessions.I highly recommend Deepika to many and will not hesitate to continue to do so. Thanks to Deepika for her incredible knowledge and dedication to her patients.

I am really glad to find this place, and Deepka as therapist, she has been really helpful and understanding my pain. My specialist has given up treating my foot pain but Deepka has fixed them. The staff are also helpful and friendly. This is conveniently located and open long hours so anyone needs to work seriously, this is the place to go.

Jonathan has been treating my tricky lower back and neck issues for seven years now and I won’t see anyone else! He takes the time to understand what is bothering me, and responds with an appropriate treatment plan – I always leave feeling better than when I arrived.

Deepika Sawant helped me with my rotator cuff – especially her exercise program that consistently helped to relieve the pain and give me more mobility. Deepika’s smile, positive approach and kindness made every appointment very pleasant. All the staff at reception was very polite and gracious.
