What are the Benefits of Massage Therapy?

Our patients have access to not only the best chiropractic care but also high-quality massage therapy at our Next Level Wellness Center. We believe in a total body approach to healing and wellness. This means our plans for our patient’s support and overall well-being. When we work with our patients, we make sure we address spinal and skeletal health, muscular health, as well as diet and exercise.

One of our popular services here at Next Level Wellness Center is massage therapy. Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient’s condition and injury.

 

Benefits of Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy has many benefits including relieving pain from tense and stiff muscles. It can also remove those dreaded muscle knots. Massage therapy increases flexibility and mobility and reduces chances of reoccurring injuries. It is known to energize the body and mind through relaxation and relief of chronic pain. One of the best benefits of massage therapy is that it is a non-invasive method of treatment with minimal to no side effects.

Under the direction of one of our chiropractors, a massage therapist will select the type of massage that provides the maximum benefit for our patient. As a component of a chiropractic plan, massage can extend healing and speed up a patient’s recovery. Athletes are seeing the benefit with specifically guided physical or sports therapy programs that our chiropractors design for each patient.

 

Types of Massages We Provide

At Next Level Wellness Center we offer a wide range of massage therapy:

Swedish massage utilizes five basic strokes, all in the direction of the heart. This massage can provide relaxation, increased blood circulation, and reduced swelling and inflammation.

Deep Tissue Massage is a more specialized type of massage that relies on an advanced understanding of anatomy and deep muscle tissue structure. This massage can be combined with other massage techniques and is helpful in physical therapy and sports therapy to treat arthritis, tendinitis, and muscular problems.

Sports Massage is commonly an element of a chiropractor-designed sports therapy plan. The main goals with this type of therapy are optimizing athletic performance, speeding up recovery, and preventing injuries. The focus and benefits of sports massage will vary depending on whether the massage is given prior to the athletic event, after the event, and if the massage is for injury rehabilitation.
