Why should you choose massage therapy?

Massage and other wellness services can be beneficial to the body in several different ways. Here are just a few reasons:

  1. Boosts your immune system: Eliminate waste and toxins from your body by stimulating the lymphatic system. By improving your lymph flow you are helping boost your immune system which protects you from getting sick and staying healthier.
  2. Reduces pain: Reduces your muscular tension, and inflammation, and it increases your circulation. These all can help with pain reduction. Various techniques such as deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, and myofascial release help release pain.
  3. Reduces Stress and Anxiety: Your serotonin and oxytocin levels are elevated which promotes a sense of calmness and relaxation. This occurs because massage therapy has the power to lower your cortisol levels in your body, which is also known as the stress hormone.
  4. Increases range of motion: Mobility can be restricted when your muscles are tight and sore but this can help loosen things up and restore your full range of motion. This can also help with reduced risk of future injuries by having more flexibility and better performance.
  5. Promotes healing:  Improves circulation and flushes out toxins which can significantly improve your body’s ability to repair and heal damaged tissues. It can also help circulate more oxygen and nutrients to the tissues resulting in faster recovery times.


Massage before or after the chiropractor?

There are differences between both that would be helpful to do massage therapy first since it can have a profound effect on the muscles and soft tissues of the spine. Then go to your chiropractor who will help you to treat the misaligned spinal joints and nerves to allow for optimal function. You can do both separately but for the best results, we recommend both techniques for a well-balanced life.
