ABOUT MASSAGE THERAPY

When you think of the word “massage,” what usually comes to mind?

Do you think of a masseuse gliding his or her hands in strategic, yet gentle, motions across your back as you drift off to sleep? If so, you are not alone; you are also not wrong. Massages can take on many different forms. Some, like the aforementioned, are meant to dissolve stress and to reduce tension – these massages are rather popular at spas. Massage therapy in a medical setting, however, is more clinical in nature and is meant to do more than just reduce stress.

Benefits of Massage Therapy
Massage therapy has a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Relaxation/Stress Reduction – Massage therapy has been shown to decrease the levels of cortisol (the stress hormone) in the body. This allows the body to recover faster and allows for a healthier overall immune system.
  • Lower Blood Pressure – Long-term studies have shown that engaging in a routine massage therapy program can lower blood pressure.
  • Muscle Relaxation – One of the main purposes of massage therapy is to reduce muscle tension. By relaxing the muscles, the body is more flexible, and circulation is improved. With improved blood circulation, affected muscles receive added nutrients and oxygen to promote healing, reduce stiffness, and reduce swelling. Additionally, endorphins (“feel good” hormones) are released which boosts the body’s serotonin levels and eases anxiety and depression.
  • Posture Improvement – When muscles are tense, they contract. This contraction can pull on various parts of the body, resulting in poor posture. For example, if the pectoral muscles are incredibly tense, this can result in rounded shoulders. Reducing the tension in the pectorals can alleviate the stress placed on the shoulders and upper back leading to less overall pain.

THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE & CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Massage therapy alone is a fantastic therapeutic option. Chiropractic care alone is also a fantastic therapeutic option. However, massage therapy and chiropractic care in tandem is the gold-standard. It is no secret that chiropractic adjustments involve manipulation of the spine and surrounding joints. One way to ensure that manipulation is successful is with the help of massage therapy. Where chiropractic care focuses on manipulating the spine, massage therapy focuses on the manipulation of the body’s soft tissues like the muscles, ligaments, and tendons. By increasing circulation and blood flow to these soft tissues, they are able to relax and loosen; this not only relieves tension, but it allows for more effective chiropractic treatment. When the soft tissue structures of the body are systematically and expertly manipulated through the healing techniques of massage, clients not only support their chiropractic programs, but also receive the numerous mental and physiological benefits of stress relief and relaxation.
