Massage | Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some answers to the most common frequently asked questions.

Q: What is Massage Therapy?

A: Massage therapy is a health and wellness option that positively effects the body in a variety of ways. Massage is used to relieve pain, soreness, and stiffness that can be caused by tension, injury, stress, or other related conditions. Massage is associated to benefit muscles, tendons, ligament tissue with respect to managing pain, and helping in the recovery of physical injuries while also decreasing stress levels.

Q: Are all massage therapists and Deep Roots Massage registered and trained?

A: Yes. All massage therapists employed with DRMT have been registered within the province of Manitoba and have been trained by accredited massage therapy schools.

Q: What should I expect during my first visit to Deep Roots Massage Therapy?

A: At Deep Roots Massage Therapy, we make it our goal to customize each session to your specific needs. Upon entering our location, you will be greeted by our lifestyle employees who will walk you through the entire process of your massage. We encourage each guest to arrive at least fifteen minutes before their scheduled appointment to be able to take full advantage of the services that DRMT has to offer. Each first-time guest is required to fill out a medical intake form which will allow the therapist to quickly assess your specific expectations and requirements. The intake form is used as a snapshot for our therapists to better develop a plan for your appointment and will also aid in future appointments to better target problem areas that may need more focus or pressure. After check-in you will be escorted to our wellness lounge where you can sit relax, catch up on your “me-time”, connect to the free wi-fi and enjoy some of our finest healthy snacks and infused waters while you wait for your appointment to begin. The therapist will meet you in the lounge and accompany you to the massage room to discuss any specifics regarding your treatment.

Upon completion of your massage session, our therapists are encouraged to offer stretches, tips on relieving stress or tension, and a quick conversation about how massage may help in the future. We also encourage you to return to the lounge to sit down and have a glass of water and an additional snack to help clear your head from post-massage fogginess. Any further questions are then answered by our front desk team who can outline different types of massages that may be needed in the future, insurance or benefits questions, and re-booking procedures.

Q: How often should I get a massage?

A: Deep Roots Massage Therapy is based on the model of monthly massage sessions. We believe in this model because continued maintenance of your body can help in everyday activities. Regular, monthly massage can help decrease stress levels, increase digestive systems within the body, help with decreasing the likelihood and intensity of headaches, speeds up the recovery of injuries or muscle fatigue from sports or working out. By incorporating regular massage sessions, we can help you create an effective treatment plan for reducing stress, pain, and muscle tension to help you along with your busy lifestyle.
