Massage Q & A
What is massage therapy?
Massage therapy is a holistic healing technique that involves manual manipulation of the soft body tissues, such as the muscles, connective tissue, ligaments, and tendons, by a trained specialist.
Many people seek massage therapy for relaxation, injury rehabilitation, anxiety or pain relief, and to enhance overall wellness.
There are numerous types of massage that are commonly split into two categories for simplicity: relaxation and rehabilitative.
The Atlas Chiropractic massage therapists have diverse experience and skills and can provide a variety of types of massage, both relaxation and rehabilitative, depending on the needs of the patient. Massage therapy is an excellent complement to chiropractic care to help release muscle tension and stress.
How does massage therapy complement chiropractic care?
The Atlas Chiropractic team uses massage therapy alongside chiropractic care methods. Massage works to disperse inflammation and reduce pain, aiding your body’s natural healing processes.
It’s often recommended for many people to have a massage before a chiropractic adjustment to relax their muscles.
Holistic healing treatments like massage therapy are centered on viewing your body as an interconnected whole, staying mindful that conditions, injuries, illnesses, or degeneration that affect specific joints can also radiate through other parts of your body.
How does massage therapy help with rehabilitation?
Rehabilitative massage therapy is specifically designed to help patients recover from an injury as quickly and smoothly as possible.
For those suffering from chronic pain or recovering from a past injury, rehabilitative massage therapy utilizes specific techniques and tools to manipulate the soft tissue in ways that provide maximum benefit for your body’s healing process. Some of the techniques include localized pressure, stretching, and promoting blood flow.
