When your body is dealing with pain, it can be tough to deal with even the most routine errands. A massage can help you overcome these aches and pains by restoring the blood passages to your back, giving those muscles a quick pick me up in the form of oxygen.

Massage Therapy in Burke VA

Massage therapy is a healing practice which can enhance an individual’s wellness and physiological performance. A massage can have a positive impact on the physique and psyche of a person. A shortlist of the amazing effects a massage can have include: shuttling toxins away from soft tissues, improving blood flow, and improving the resilience of the body’s many fibers and joints.

Massage therapy has also been known to assist in treating muscle spasms and muscle trauma. The reason this is the case is that a massage reduces the amount of time it takes to recover by improving the flow of the circulatory system. This, in turn, allows the body to recover faster naturally.

A massage at a chiropractic clinic can help with innumerable symptoms such as back pain, healing from medical procedures, headaches and migraines, insomnia, and much more.


Advantages of Massage Therapy

The advantages of massage therapy are heralded and known across the world. It has been well-documented that massage can treat a large number of symptoms. Just a couple of the advantages that massage therapy can afford an individual include, extremity pain relief, improved blood flow, improved mood, and reduced physical and mental pressure. Massage therapy is also excellent at eliminating the body of toxins. All of the advantages of massage therapy combine to result in an all-natural treatment that can help a person’s body perform at its very best in all dimensions of health.


Massage Therapy and Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic and massage are similar in that they both utilize the careful application of physical force on an individual's body in order to activate the body’s healing response. Once these treatments are complete, the body tends to undergo a restoration and any aches and pains are diminished and life becomes increasingly pain-free.

It is not necessary to choose between massage therapy and chiropractic since both are excellent treatments that complement each other well. There are many individuals living healthier lifestyles that serve as proof of the healing properties of these treatments.

The reason why massage therapy and chiropractic care work well together is because:

  • Massage prolongs the effects of a chiropractic adjustment
  • Chiropractic adjustments make it easier for a massage to affect the body
  • Improved flexibility between the two treatments ensure the full benefits of said treatments are realized

Swedish Massage

The most common massage modality practiced, great for relaxation. Long flowing strokes help calm the nervous system and bring total relaxation to the body while decreasing pain, inflammation, and anxiety. You can choose light, medium, or firm pressure.


Deep Tissue Massage

Most commonly mistaken for meaning deep pressure but actually focuses on the deeper muscles. Deep tissue massage is great for releasing chronic muscle tension, reducing pain, increasing muscle mobility and flexibility, reducing inflammation, and improving recovery from injuries. Pressure is typically medium to firm and can be adjusted to your preference.


Sports Massage

Post or pre-event massage is beneficial to reduce risk of injury and improve flexibility and mobility using compression, stretching, active release therapy, and other techniques. Pressure is typically medium to deep to effectively reach deeper muscles."

Cupping

  • 30 minutes $45
  • Add on to a massage for $10

This lesser known therapy is based on ancient Egyptian and Chinese medicine beliefs that stagnant blood and energy flow cause musculoskeletal conditions. In this therapy silicone cups are applied to the body to create a suction which draws blood to the area and increases blood flow.

Benefits of cupping therapy are reduction of inflammation and pain, increased blood flow, mobility, and flexibility in muscles. Static cupping is when cups stay where they are placed for a few minutes, this leaves a hickey-like circular mark. Dynamic cupping, also known as cupping massage, is when the cups are placed and moved in a gliding motion which may leave small marks but not as much as static cupping."
