What Does Massage Therapy Do?

Massage therapy is one of the oldest forms of therapeutic treatment, in which a therapist applies pressure to manipulate soft tissue and break down muscle adhesions (knots) in the body. Over time, massage has developed into a wide range of techniques, all of which help to promote healthy well-being. Studies show that massage therapy is a highly effective treatment for reducing stress, pain, muscle soreness and tension.

Our qualified team is highly skilled in providing quality massage therapy. When you book a massage therapy session, your experienced massage therapist will discuss any injuries, aches and pains you might have to determine the best form of massage for you.

Sports Massage

Whether you are a high-level athlete or simply need a way to unwind after a stressful week at work, massage therapy can benefit patients from all walks of life. If not addressed correctly, muscle soreness and tightness can lead to increased tension in the joints, muscles and tendons and even cause prolonged injuries.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is primarily employed as a technique to help treat sports-related injuries and chronic pain. However, it can also be used as an effective treatment for stubborn areas­— stiff neck and shoulders, upper and lower back pain and leg muscle tightness.

This form of massage therapy uses the application of pressure to break down the knots from stressed, overworked muscles and connective tissue, helping to alleviate pain. It also speeds up the natural healing process by increasing blood flow to the targeted area and reducing inflammation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is massage therapy covered by insurance?

Coverage for massage therapy varies depending on your specific health insurance plan. To determine if massage therapy is included in your coverage, it is recommended to contact your insurance provider directly and inquire about the specifics of your policy.

What should I wear during a massage?

During a massage session, you have the flexibility to undress to your comfort level. Whether you choose to fully undress or prefer to keep your underwear on, rest assured that massage therapists are trained professionals who prioritize your privacy and ensure proper draping at all times.

Are there any post-massage recommendations?

After receiving a massage, it is beneficial to hydrate yourself by drinking plenty of water. This helps flush out toxins from your body and keeps you properly hydrated. Additionally, it is advisable to rest and avoid engaging in strenuous activities for a few hours, allowing your body to fully relax and reap the benefits of the massage.

How does massage therapy complement chiropractic care?

Massage therapy can play a valuable role in enhancing the effects of chiropractic care. By relaxing muscles, reducing tension, and improving circulation, massage therapy prepares your body for chiropractic adjustments and promotes overall healing. The combination of massage therapy and chiropractic care can provide a holistic approach to address your specific needs and improve your overall well-being.
