Chiropractic massage combines scientific and holistic medicine by focusing on the role that your nervous system plays in creating optimal health. The combination of Swedish, deep tissue, and shiatsu massage, all while supervised by a licensed doctor, creates deep relaxation, and further increases the benefits of any chiropractic adjustments.
Chiropractic massage is a therapeutic effort that helps relax the muscles of your back, neck, and torso that, when continually tensed, lead to complications like cramping, back aches, neck aches, headaches and migraines, and other illnesses.
Benefits of Chiropractic Massage
There are many benefits of chiropractic massage. Not only does it feel good and help you sleep better and feel more relaxed, but there are verifiable health benefits, including stress reduction and improved circulation. The benefits are mental as well as physical, providing both the body and mind with relief from pressure, pain and discomfort.
Chiropractors focus on the support muscles of the torso and back, working to stretch and loosen muscles while enhancing lymph flow, which helps the body eliminate metabolic waste. Immune system function can be improved, and many patients report better sleep patterns and mental clarity with regular treatment.
Your massage therapist is an expert in the following modalities, and can combine them to meet your individual needs.
Deep Tissue: Targeting chronic patterns of holding, deep-tissue relies on slow strokes and targeted pressure, often with a finger, thumb or elbow.
Shiatsu: A Japanese style, shiatsu directs pressure to lines of energy (meridians) considered important for health and well-being.
Swedish: A combination of long, gliding strokes, as well as kneading, stretching and tapping. Swedish massage is thought to enhance health by increasing blood flow to the muscles.
Sports: Often used before and after athletic activity, the focus is on reducing inflammation, keeping joints flexible and enhancing performance.
Prenatal Massage: Relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema. In addition, prenatal massage can reduce stress on weight-bearing joints, encourages blood and lymph circulation, helps to relax nervous tension-which aids in better sleep.
