Therapeutic massage is the manipulation of soft tissue with the goal of relieving muscle tension in order to restore balance and function to the body. Massage can help alleviate many chronic conditions, but is also beneficial in reducing physical stress and fatigue, promoting faster healing of acute injuries, and helping to maintain proper joint mechanics following a chiropractic adjustment. It also aids in improving circulation and lymphatic drainage which nourishes the joints, decreases inflammation, and increases flexibility. In other words, massage feels really good and is good for your over-all health.
Therapeutic massage and chiropractic manipulation work in concert together to restore proper balance to the body and facilitate the body’s built-in repair system. In order to achieve true balance, it is important to examine both muscular imbalances in the body and dysfunction in the joint mechanics. Your chiropractor and your massage therapist will work together to ensure that every aspect of your condition is addressed and resolved. Do not hesitate to ask the doctor or our therapists if massage may be right for you.
