What Is Massage Therapy?

Massage is a general term used to describe the process of pressing, rubbing, and manipulating skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. While once only available at luxury spas and upscale health clubs, massage therapy is now offered in businesses, clinics, and hospitals because it has legitimate medical benefits.

Chiropractic massage therapy focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and nervous system. This type of therapy is often preferred because it addresses the source of the pain, rather than masking it.

What Are the Benefits of Chiropractic Massage?

There are many benefits of chiropractic massage. Not only does it feel good and help you sleep better and feel more relaxed, but there are verifiable health benefits that can be achieved through specialized and focused chiropractic massage, including stress reduction and improved circulation. The benefits are mental as well as physical, providing both the body and mind with relief from pressure, pain, and discomfort.

Chiropractors focus on the support muscles of the torso and back, working to stretch and loosen muscles while enhancing lymph flow, which helps the body eliminate metabolic waste. Immune system function can be improved, and many patients report better sleep patterns and mental clarity with regular treatment.

How Does Chiropractic Massage Work?

Chiropractic massage is a therapeutic effort that helps relax the muscles of your back, neck, and torso that, when continually tensed, lead to complications like cramping, backaches, neck aches, headaches and migraines, and other illnesses. Most chiropractors believe there is a strong link between the body’s structural alignment and physical health, and have evidence of the connection between improvements in muscle fitness and spine alignment with things like allergies, recurring migraines, and backaches.
