Discover the Many Surprising Benefits of Massage Therapy

Many people don’t think of massage therapy as a medical treatment. It’s seen as a luxury; perhaps on the level of a facial. Therapeutic massage is much more than that, and people are often surprised to discover all the possible benefits.

This non-invasive type of bodywork may be added to your care plan for faster, more lasting results. It works well in conjunction with chiropractic care. After a massage session, muscles are more relaxed, allowing the doctor to adjust you more easily and deeper. Massage may also help you hold the adjustment longer.

Benefits for You

Everyone may benefit from massage therapy. It benefits any part of the body, including neck, shoulders, back, hips, and extremities. An immediate benefit is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm due to the release of endorphins. These brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) produce feelings of well-being.

Here are some of the most common benefits of massage therapy:

After a therapy session, most people feel very relaxed. Some patients discover long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity have disappeared. You may feel a little lethargic at first, followed by increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity.

We also educate patients on how whole body health may improve their lives. Everything in the body is connected; correcting an issue in one area is beneficial to all. Understanding how therapeutic massage affects overall health and wellness allows your therapist to put together a care plan geared to what your body needs for optimal health.
