Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care.
Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!
Massage therapy increases serotonin, expands flexibility, relieves stress, reduces scar tissue, and increases circulation. It also calms the nervous system, supports joint mobility, eases aches and pains, and improves general ranges of motion. When your blood pressure lowers through the relaxing process of massage, not only can you manage anxiety and illness better, but your body relaxes and you open up space for receptivity and healing. Therapeutic massage is widely prescribed by physicians to alleviate discomfort, calm muscle spasms, and reduce high levels of stimulation to the nervous system.
