What are the benefits of massage?

Most people are familiar with massage, but there are many health benefits that it offers which are sometimes overlooked. This drug-free, holistic method of healing not only offers immediate relief from pain, but it offers long term benefits that will increase your overall wellness.

Some of the benefits of massage therapy include:

  • Faster recovery from injury.  This is one of massage’s greatest benefits and provides much more relief from pain/injury than chiropractic procedures alone. It gives you immediate relief to your soft tissue and supporting structures, helping you feel better right away.  
  • Ease in receiving chiropractic adjustments. Massage helps relax muscles that impinge your movement, giving you the ability to move more freely and without pain
  • Increased motion. Massages are able to improve the flexibility and mobility of impacted areas such as muscles, ligaments, and other soft tissue
  • Better circulation.  Massage has been proven to improve your blood flow and relieve lactic acid build up. This is a very important benefit to your overall health, and benefits your nervous system greatly.

In addition to these benefits, massage therapy is the perfect companion to chiropractic care. A combination of both processes can provide significant relief to you almost immediately, and also provide assistance in managing long term health conditions such as fibromyalgia. 

We offer a variety of massage services at Keppler Chiropractic, including:

  • Basic massage – this consists of a rubbing of your soft tissue/muscles. It provides relief from tension and pain, improves circulation, and provides relaxation.
  • Deep tissue massage –  this is a more targeted procedure that targets trouble spots in your body. Your massage therapist uses strokes that go deeper than a basic massage, helping you to relieve chronic conditions of pain
  • Trigger Point Massage- this process of manipulation to your muscles/soft tissue is used to treat chronic pain and remove its underlying source. It is a medically-focused procedure that provides relief for trigger points, circulation, posture issues, and your body’s biomechanical problems that are caused by injury. 
  • Neuromuscular therapy- this process of manipulation to your muscles/soft tissue is used to treat chronic pain and remove its underlying source. It is a medically-focused procedure that provides relief for trigger points, circulation, posture issues, and your body’s biomechanical problems that are caused by injury.
