Nashua Massage Therapy Programs
Massage has an ancient and successful history of helping people feel better, and today’s modern scientific inquiries are starting to unlock the secrets of how massage works. Therapeutic massage is a highly effective holistic healing modality with a wide variety of techniques that can be applied to treat many different injuries and chronic conditions. Our Nashua massage therapy programs employ many different styles, all of which are tailored directly to the needs of each patient. Even the very young and the very seasoned—as well as everyone in between—can reap the benefits of massage therapy. We frequently recommend it for pain relief for neck pain, back pain, headaches, and recovery from sports, work, personal and car accident injuries.
Nashua Massage Therapy For Health and Wellness
Our health and wellness center incorporates massage as a natural complement to chiropractic care. While spinal adjustments focus on realigning the vertebrae within the spine to their normal alignment, our Nashua massage therapy programs focus on kneading, tapping and rubbing the muscles that support the spine. Massage therapy reconditions and retrains the muscles so that they adapt to the improvements in spinal alignment, thereby better supporting those adjustments for long-term posture correction.
Massage therapy provides many other therapeutic benefits, both for specific muscle groups and injured areas, but also for the entire body-mind connection. As massage loosens painful musculoskeletal tensions, it sends endorphins into the bloodstream. These are the body’s natural painkillers. By providing natural pain relief for neck pain, back pain, and pain in the extremities, the whole body relaxes and emotional stress dissipates. Massage stimulates circulation and actually reduces inflammation right down at the cellular level, which accelerates the body’s own natural healing processes.
Massage can also break down scar tissue and adhesions deep within injured, overworked muscle tissues. These adhesions restrict normal range of motion and can cause pain in many areas of the body. When massage breaks down these abnormally tight spots in the muscles, it improves range of motion, soft tissue suppleness and muscle flexibility. These benefits make massage a natural addition to the injury recovery process, along with chiropractic care and nutritional counseling.
Massage’s ability to relieve stress makes it an essential aspect of improving our patients’ overall wellness too. Studies show that 90% of doctor visits are instigated by conditions worsened by stress. This includes everything from headaches, high blood pressure and heart disease to diabetes, obesity, fibromyalgia, and frequent colds and infections. Research shows that regular massage helps to lower blood pressure and stimulates the immune system so it is better able to respond to stressors in the environment. Reduced stress also helps people trying to lose weight to beat the effects of emotional eating.
