Massage Therapy

The practice of massage therapy consists of the assessment and treatment of the soft tissues of the body, including the muscles, connective tissue, ligaments, tendons, and joints with the purpose of optimizing health. The therapeutic effects of massage therapy are achieved primarily through the hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues and joints of the body. The use of massage therapy can develop, maintain and improve physical function, as well as relieve or prevent physical dysfunction and pain.

Whether looking to rehabilitate an injury, improve athletic performance or prolong physical activity, massage therapy at Hydrathletics is a tailor-made treatment option for a variety of medical conditions and athletic conditioning needs. Massage therapy helps clients achieve increased flexibility and range of motion through the manipulation of fascia, muscles and tendons. If facing a chronic illness or acute injury, massage therapy can also assist with rehabilitation and the restoration of movement. Working alongside clients to determine the necessary techniques and pressures, our expert Hydrathletics team can help alleviate stress, pain and muscle tension through therapeutic treatment.

In many cases, massage therapy is covered by major insurance companies. Hydrathletics is experienced in working with insurance companies as well as Veteran’s Affairs and motor vehicle accident claims. Clients with insurance coverage through extended health benefits may also have coverage for our services and can call the Hydrathletics clinic to discuss options.


  • "I was looking for a custom tailored workout that was fun and would push me to my limits without causing aggravation to a previously sustained ankle injury, that is exactly what I found at Hydrathletics. The Hydrathletics team are fun and motivating!"

  • "I've been fortunate to be able to use the Hydroworx treadmill at Hydrathletics in Kingston during recovery from a recent injury. The Hydroworx has allowed me to return to running much sooner than I otherwise would be able to. Being able to continue to run even in the early stages of injury recovery is a huge benefit to maintaining my fitness level and returning to full health. It is the best form of cross-training I've tried during injury rehab because it allows me to mimic my actual running form very closely. I also believe the Hydroworx treadmill would be a great tool to supplement on-land running even when fully healthy and training normally, by being able to unload some of the pressure and stress on the joints while still getting a fantastic cardio workout. Joe and his staff at Hydrathletics are very knowledgable and enthusiastic."

  • "After suffering two broken ribs and an intercostal muscle tear I found day to day activities painful. Intent on maintaining my workout routine I met with Hydrathletics. They designed a programme which allowed me to continue working out twice a week. To my shock, I was able to run on the underwater treadmill with no upper body discomfort. I highly recommend it!"
