Understanding Massage Therapy
The history of massages goes back to ancient China. Practitioners used massages to improve and maintain health for the sick and healthy alike. The movement of the hands and manipulation of muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the body provides several specific benefits that make it helpful as an adjunct treatment for many physical ailments.
What Are the Benefits of Massage Therapy?
Massages have the unique ability to improve healing with touch and physical manipulation of tissues in the body. Massages can reduce pain, trigger relaxation, facilitate healing, and improve mood. Massage therapy is an effective way to improve your quality of life and deal with many painful conditions. Massage therapy can also improve your immune system function.
What Happens During Massage Therapy?
Your chiropractor will begin your massage therapy session by having you lie comfortably on a padded table. They will then use their hands to work the tissues in an affected area in various ways. They may use their hands, palms, elbows, or forearms to push, press, roll, or stretch the tissues that need attention. Massage therapy increases blood flow to the area to help speed healing, improves the production of natural healing chemicals, and provides pain relief. You are free to continue your daily activities after a massage therapy session.
