Benefits of Massage Therapy
Therapeutic massage and Deep Muscle therapy available in our office!!
We all know that massage "feels good", but the benefits of massage are much more vast. There are many therapeutic effects of massage that are supported by scientific research! Some of these benefits are: general relaxation of the body, improved circulation and blood flow, relaxation of muscles, alleviation of some types of muscular pain, decreased anxiety, relief of the negative effects of stress, and improvement in the nutrition to your cells.
Many of today's major health concerns and problems ultimately can be related to stress. This stress comes in many forms. Mental and emotional stress can lead to headaches, low back pain and ulcers etc…. Normal daily activities or repetitive motions can put stress and strain on the joints and tissues of the body. With these types of tension, muscles can shorten which can cause a loss of flexibility in the joints and muscles as well. When muscles are relaxed and restored to their optimal length and tension, correct posture and alignment can be maintained more easily.
How does massage work into the picture with your chiropractic care and treatments? Massage therapy is an effective complement and works synergistically with your chiropractic care. When utilized together, chiropractic and massage facilitate and stimulate the body's natural healing process by keeping the body in proper alignment, which ensures a free flow of nerve impulses and circulation in the blood and lymphatic systems.
Many of the problems that cause pain in the musculo-skeletal system are caused from a combination of stress on muscles, joints and nerves. Therefore, it is important to correct the misalignments called subluxations by being adjusted. In addition to relieving the stress on the nervous system, it is important to treat the soft tissues such as the muscles and tendons. In doing so this will help to lessen the accompanying pain from the subluxations and will help to maintain and prevent subluxation. By working together, chiropractic and massage will provide you with a more complete and effective health care system.
Make the choice to complement your chiropractic care with therapeutic massage today!! You will not only reduce the stress from the everyday grind, but you will assist the body in reduction of pain and its ability to heal itself.
