Anyone living in today’s hectic world can benefit from massage. Those who are particularly good candidates are athletes (both weekend and competitive), office workers who spend many hours at a desk or computer, people who stand all day (waiters, for example), as well as those who do a lot of lifting and anyone in highly stressful situations. Muscle pain and nervous tension are two manifestations of everyday stress and strain that most of us experience. Massage helps to alleviate symptoms and restore balance to frenzied lives.
Massage therapy offers not only pain relief, but is a powerful adjunct to healing with chiropractic. Massage assists our healing in many ways: it melts away tension, relieving pain and discomfort. This relief helps us relax physically, mentally, and emotionally. Massage improves circulation and lymphatic drainage, thus improving the flow of nutrients to the tissues and the removal of toxins from the body. It improves flexibility and joint range of motion, reduces inflammation, and improves muscle tone. Regular massage helps us cope with life’s challenges better because we feel mentally and physically fit.
