The Benefits of Therapeutic Massage

Massage therapy activates, stimulates, and benefits the body's soft tissues including the muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, nerve tissue, and more. By relaxing and improving the function of soft tissues in your body, your skeletal system will be better able to maintain proper alignment. In addition to reinforcing chiropractic adjustments, therapeutic massage also imparts the following benefits:

  • Reduced Pain - Massage improves the function of the lymphatic and circulatory systems. With increased circulation and flow of fluid throughout your body, you will enjoy reduced pain due to muscle tension, scar tissue, and inflammation.  
  • Reduced Inflammation - Pain-causing inflammation harms your body in many ways, leading to conditions such as arthritis, asthma, and even cancer. Massage therapy reduces inflammation throughout your body for a healthier outlook. 
  • Accelerated Healing - Increased circulation facilitates the delivery of oxygen and nutrients vital to cellular healing.

In addition to these direct benefits of massage therapy, therapeutic massage also stimulates the immune system, boosts endorphin production, leads to reduced anxiety and stress, and improves sleep. It has also been shown to lower blood pressure, imparting numerous benefits to a patient's long-term health.

Our skilled and experienced massage therapists offer a wide range of therapeutic massage techniques which can be experienced alone or in conjunction with additional chiropractic services. Depending on your specific health needs, goals for massage therapy, and physical condition, our massage therapists, and chiropractic professionals will work with you to select a type of massage most suited to your needs. 

  • Relaxation Massage - a gentle massage which aims to reduce tension and stress, improving mood and outlook
  • Deep Tissue Massage - loosens scar tissue deep within the muscle, allowing the body to release it and restoring range of motion
  • Lymphatic Drainage Massage - a restorative massage which boosts the lymphatic system's natural circulation which allows the body to release toxins and waste
  • Injury Massage (Remedial Massage) - uses response-specific massage techniques (active and non-active) to prevent the production of scar tissue and accelerate the healing process
  • Post-Surgical Massage - gentle massage techniques reduce post-surgical pain due to stiffness or scar tissue in addition to boosting the body's natural healing properties
