Massage Therapy

Massage therapy involves the use of a trained therapist’s hands to affect the integrityof a person’s soft tissues through various manual techniques. Massage therapy is quite often a valuable adjunct to active Physiotherapy.

All Panther Sports Medicine clinics offer the services of registered Massage Therapists.These services can be accessed in addition to Physiotherapy services OR as a ‘standalone’ treatment.

All of our Massage Therapists are highly trained and can provide all types of massage techniques, from gentle relaxation to deep therapeutic, depending on the needs of the individual client.


There are many ways to access funding options when seeking treatment at our centres.

Extended health benefit plans

Physiotherapy treatment is usually covered in health benefit plans. Check your plan for coverage details and if your insurer requires a doctor referral for reimbursement. Depending on your insurance company, you may even have access to direct billing.

Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) coverage

If you are injured at work, WCB will normally approve up to 21 treatment visits over six weeks. WCB pays for the first visit and after reports are submitted they will notify us if you claim has been accepted. Contact our clinics for more information.

Automobile insurance

If you have been injured in a car accident seek treatment within 10 days of your accident. Your insurance company will normally pre-approve up to 21 treatment visits over a 12 week period. You can consult a licensed physiotherapist directly and you do not need a physician referral.

Veteran’s Affairs, Canadian Armed Forces, RCMP

If you are a veteran or currently serving with the Armed Forces or the RCMP, you may have access to funding for therapy services through your government benefits. Contact Panther Sports and your health coordinator for more information.
