Our family chiropractic center offers a variety of therapeutic massage styles to complement chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture and decompression therapy.

4 Types of Massage Therapy for Pain Management and Stress Relief

Our chiropractors frequently integrate massage therapy programs into patients’ treatment plans. Could massage therapy help you? Learn more about the four of the most popular massage styles offered at our practice:

Swedish massage: Are you feeling overwhelmed by stress or anxiety? Many of today’s chronic health problems, including heart disease, are triggered by stress. Stress can also cause headaches, backaches, and high blood pressure. Swedish massage helps lower blood pressure while enhancing the mind-body connection. The physical act of massaging muscle tissue increases the flow of fresh, oxygen-rich blood. This helps to lower cortisol levels while increasing endorphin levels. Massage also helps improve posture and alignment by releasing tension from sore muscles.

Deep tissue massage: Do you suffer from chronic pain? When the body is in pain, it traps tension deep within the connective tissues. This tensions leads to muscle contraction, which causes further tightness and stiffness. Deep tissue massage helps to break this cycle of tension and contraction, allowing the muscles to relax. Our chiropractor recommends deep tissue massage for natural pain relief for neck pain, shoulder pain and back pain. Deep tissue massage also is effective for sports injuries.

Myofascial release: Does a chronic health condition, like fibromyalgia, trigger daily pain? Myofascial release may be able to help. This style of massage uses long, deep strokes and sustained pressure to release tension from the body. The goal of myofascial release is to restore fluidity and flexibility to the body. This is especially effective for patients with chronic conditions like fibromyalgia. Myofascial release can help reshape “stuck” muscle tissue and restore proper function.

Craniosacral Therapy: Patients suffering from chronic headaches and recurring migraines can benefit from this type of therapy, a gentle method used to improve the natural movement of cerebrospinal fluid and free any possible restrictions.
