Many people use therapeutic bodywork as part of their holistic healthcare plan. It can help prevent stress-related diseases. In clients who are at risk of injury caused by repetitive movement or poor posture, massage can help prevent symptoms from worsening and injuries from happening by releasing tight muscles and increasing joint mobility. Always see a massage therapist first before undergoing joint surgery such as carpel tunnel. In many cases, surgery can be prevented by treating the muscles surrounding the painful joint.
Out of balance muscle groups can actually pull your body out of alignment and cause pain. This can be caused by having too tight muscles as well as too loose, or weak muscles. A chiropractor can adjust your neck, but if your muscles are too tight it will pull your neck out of alignment again. A physical therapist can give you exercises to help strengthen muscles, but if you also have tight muscles, strengthening only solves half the problem. Massage helps relieve pain by releasing tight or overworked muscles and bringing the muscle groups back into balance. We recommend getting massages right before going to a chiropractor so the spinal adjustment lasts longer.
Muscle Recovery after Sports and Exercise
Speed up the recovery time of muscles after hard work and athletic activity. Naturally flush out lactic acid from the tissue, return fresh nutrients and blood to the tissue, and help realign muscle fibers. We recommend getting a massage if you have sore muscles after working out.
Induce deep relaxation by increasing circulation, releasing muscular tension, and providing you with a quiet time and space for mental and physical restoration. Fitting a massage into your busy routine will help relieve stress, decrease pain, boost your immune system, and release feel-good endorphins into your brain. Receiving massage on a regular basis helps prevent stress related diseases and depression.
