What does massage actually do? And why do you need it?
Massage Therapy is excellent for reducing restrictions in soft tissue (muscle, ligaments, tendons, and connective tissue call fascia) that cause pain. A Therapeutic Massage session releases tension and spasm from muscles, increases blood circulation, promotes lymph drainage, decreases scar tissue and adhesions, and aides in muscle and connective tissue reconstruction and healing. Massage Therapy is also very soothing to the nervous system and is a great tool for reducing stress and tension, which often contribute to pain.
When combined with Chiropractic adjustments, Massage Therapy can result in faster healing from injury and quicker reduction of pain, as well as helping you stay in alignment longer after a chiropractic adjustment.
Our Licensed Massage Therapist is specially trained in the following forms of therapy: Myofascial Release, Swedish Massage [which includes effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), and friction (cross fiber or with the fibers)], Soft Tissue Release, and Neuromuscular Therapy (trigger point therapy).
