Why is Massage Important?

Massage is one of the oldest healing arts: Chinese records dating back 3,000 years document its use; the ancient Hindus, Persians and Egyptians applied forms of massage for many ailments; and Hippocrates wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems. Today, the benefits of massage are varied and far-reaching.

As an accepted part of many physical rehabilitation programs, massage therapy has also proven beneficial for many chronic conditions, including low back pain, arthritis, bursitis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, immunity suppression, infertility, smoking cessation, depression, and more. And, as many millions will attest, massage also helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living that can lead to disease and illness.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage involves applying firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles). This technique is used to break up scar tissue and physically break down muscle “knots”. These “knots” can disrupt circulation and cause pain, limited range of motion, and inflammation.

Acupuncture & Massage Combo

An acupuncture is a system of Chinese Medicine in which very fine needles are inserted into the superficial layer of the skin along the specific points throughout the body in order to elicit a specific response. The combination would include a type of massage in the same session.

Prenatal Massage

While every pregnancy is unique, a woman’s body changes as the baby grows, which can cause discomfort for a mom-to-be. As the abdomen grows outward and your body’s center of gravity shifts outward. Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and swelling.

Table Thai Massage

Table Thai massage is the use of momentum and gravity rather than muscular strength; rocking; and range-of-motion assisted stretching. Thai massage is performed while you are fully clothed. The therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches and applies deep muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure.

How Does It Work?

The most common therapeutic procedure performed by doctors of chiropractic is known as “spinal manipulation,” also called “chiropractic adjustment.” The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile – or restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury.

Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time.

In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function for the sufferer. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal.
