Massage therapy has a number of benefits. This type of therapy is used both for relaxation purposes and for healing purposes today, and many chiropractic patients find massage to be the ideal complement to chiropractic manipulation or other chiropractic care techniques. Massage is one of the most effective natural methods for reducing inflammation in the muscles. It can also greatly improve circulation. Massage can target and eliminate scar tissue buildup on and around the muscles, which will then allow for improved range of movement. Perhaps the most common reason that people seek massage therapy today is pain relief. Massage can not only alleviate existing pain, but it can also improve wellness so that the pain won't return with the same frequency or intensity. Ultimately, massage can help bring the body into an improved state of balance and total wellness.
Myofascial release is a type of massage that focuses on alleviating pain and mobility problems. This massage technique can force painfully contracted muscles to relax, thereby bringing about significant pain relief. This type of treatment is done directly on the skin with only a gentle but firm amount of pressure. With the ideal amount of pressure at precisely the right time, many serious pain and mobility problems can be corrected.
Good lymphatic circulation is essential for overall body function. Lymphatic massage focuses on improving lymph fluid circulation and flushing out lactic acid from within the muscles. This type of massage involves hands-on manipulations that will gently but firmly encourage the body to improve function. Lymphatic massage helps the body to keep metabolic waste moving and can even lower blood pressure. Lymphatic massage can help the body function better overall.
