How Massage Therapy Works With Chiropractic Care
Massage is one of the oldest, simplest forms of therapy. The benefits of Massage Therapy reach from stress-induced pain to muscular tension following an injury or trauma. The manipulation of the body’s soft tissue to relieve areas of tension also works to reach optimal balance for whole-body health. Its affect is both short term and long-term, as it provides tension relief while also normalizing circulatory, muscular and nervous systems network function. Our doctors continuously communicate with our massage therapists regarding your pain or condition ensuring the most beneficial results from your massage.
Benefits of Massage Therapy
Peer-reviewed medical research has shown that the benefits of massage include pain relief, reduced trait anxiety and depression, and temporarily reduced blood pressure, heart rate, and state of anxiety. Theories behind what massage might do include blocking nociception (gate control theory), activating the parasympathetic nervous system, which may stimulate the release of endorphins and serotonin, preventing fibrosis or scar tissue, increasing the flow of lymph, and improving sleep, but such effects are yet to be supported by well-designed clinical studies.
At Huntington Health Center we use Massage Therapy in conjunction with chiropractic care for a variety of health-related conditions and ailements, including pain relief, sports injury rehab, stress reduction, increase relaxation, anxiety issues, depression, and overall general wellness.
