Massage therapy is a highly regarded approach to treatment that is quickly growing in popularity and demand. Massage therapy is recognized as a crucial part of treatment plans for a vast array of reasons. This type of therapy relies on hands-on techniques to help increase circulation, relieve anxiety, and reduce stress and a number of other health benefits. Here are just a few of the reasons to consider visiting Kary Chiropractic to provide you with all the benefits massage therapy brings.
There is a wide range of potential causes of neck, back and muscle pain. Chronic back pain is one of the most common reasons why people seek out chiropractic care and massage therapy, and in many situations, it is due to poor posture. Back and neck pain are often the result of incorrect posture while standing or sitting, especially at work. When combined with chiropractic care, massage therapy can help to loosen and relax your muscles, improve range of motion and relieve pressure points, ultimately correcting your posture and improving movement.
Studies have shown that with routine visits to your chiropractor combined with massage therapy will not only help to reduce stress levels but can boost your immune system, reduce chronic pain and improve your overall health.
Lowers Blood Pressure
Regular massage therapy treatment can help to reduce the levels of your blood pressure. Studies have shown that regular massages can help to reduce both the upper number (systolic) and the lower number (diastolic) blood pressure as well as reduce the cortisol levels within your body. In addition, regular massage therapy may also reduce tension, anxiety, and depression, which can ultimately raise your blood pressure, increase the risk of heart attack, stroke and kidney failure.
One of the best benefits of routine massage therapy treatments is a significant improvement in blood circulation. Massages help to reduce stiff and tense muscles, which may ultimately lead to poor circulation. In order to maintain health and function, your body tissues need to be supplied with oxygen rich blood. Old blood and waste materials need also to be flushed out (which is why being well hydrated before and after a massage is so important). Massage therapy helps to improve circulation through the hands-on pressure used by our therapist, which helps to move the blood through congested and damaged areas of your body, in turn, causing new blood flow into your tissues. Also, the twisting, pulling and squeezing actions of massage helps to remove lactic acid and other waste materials from muscle tissues.
