Dynamic Duos often create more excitement. Batman and Robin, Lone Ranger and Tonto, Quarterbacks with Great Wide Receivers etc. work better together than apart. Complementary pairings propel results and with chiropractic and massage; people get well faster and enjoy better health.
Gentle chiropractic care realigns the spine, while massage therapy relaxes, tense muscles which connect into the spine. The synergistic balance of gentle chiropractic with massage mesh well with each other to create a comprehensive treatment plan for many conditions or injuries.
As our bodies are a web of interconnected muscles, nerves, bones, etc. to treat as a whole is vital to initiating the healing process. So, let us show you how massage therapy and gentle chiropractic are a pain-fighting, mobility enhancing dynamic duo that can revolutionize your health.
A soothing massage enables a more effective chiropractic visit. Therapeutic massage therapy warms up muscles and relaxes the whole body, enabling the chiropractor to maximize his gentle chiropractic treatment for optimal results.
Many people live with misaligned spines for many years before receiving the proper spine and muscle care. As the spine is misaligned, the muscles compensate creating great strains and knots which add to the pain and suffering. So by gently realigning the spine and releasing knots in the muscles the re-alignments often maintain correction better which speeds up the healing process. Not to mention the fact, that muscle knots can also fire pain other places or press on nerves.
Massage Therapy brings about a more stable spine correction. When a chiropractor performs a spine treatment to alleviate pain or increase mobility, the massage allows the a more fluid realignment of the spine.
Chiropractic treatments take massage therapy's efforts further, including the joints and bones. Each gentle treatment offers strong relief and recovery to certain areas of the body. When the spine is misaligned and muscles knotted, it creates restrictions (stuck). So the goal of chiropractic with massage therapy is to get the body un-stuck and fluid again, so it can heal itself better. Massage Therapy produces relaxation in muscles, relieving tensions and toxins. Chiropractic treatments furthers this effort to the body by making the tendon, joints, bones and ultimately, the nervous system work better.
Full body, broad rejuvenation and healing treatments like chiropractic and massage create conditions for healing, naturally.
The combination of both…is amazing.
One person said, getting a massage is like getting a car wash while receiving chiropractic treatments are like getting an oil change and tune-up. The car wash is nice and feels good but we also need to change the oil and get a tune-up.
Many people come to massage therapy thinking their pains are caused by tense muscles, but until the spine is realigned and the nerves which feed the muscles can relax then the tense muscles will remain, even after a great massage.
