Massage Therapy uses a variety of modalities to affect the body’s soft tissues such as muscles. Rehabilitative and Relaxation massage are the two fundamental types of massage. Within those categories, there are several techniques that a therapist can use. Some people view massage as a relaxing back rub at a spa, but this is not always the case.
Massage Therapy can be used to treat so many conditions.
Just to name a few, massage can increase circulation, decrease pain and inflammation, stimulate acupressure points, increase range of motion, and decrease recovery time from an injury.
Massage Therapy and Chiropractic work so well together because the body’s soft tissues attach to the bones which can affect how a joint moves. Ensuring that the muscles are relaxed and healthy, a chiropractic adjustment can be more effective.
