Massage Therapy Q & A

Desiring Health Specific Chiropractic

What is the benefit of massage therapy?

    • It can help posture stress. According to the United States department of Labor, 39% of Americans in 2016 spent most of their job sitting down. Most posture stress is in the upper back and neck. However, if you schedule a regular massage, it will help the imbalance.
    • It eases muscle pain. Massage therapy increases and improves the circulation in your feet, hands, and more.
    • It can help feelings of anxiety and depression. Massage therapy can help you relax, not only your physical but mental state as well.
    • It may improve sleep. Massage therapy can help promote restful sleep for those who don’t see much of it.
    • It can boost immunity and relieve headaches. It may improve not only your central nervous system, but your overall health as well.

What are the types of massage I can choose from?

    • Swedish: a gentle form of massage--helps relax the muscles and reenergize.
    • Deep tissue: helps deep muscle injuries with firm pressure.
    • Sports: similar to the Swedish, it focuses more on specific sport injuries.
    • Trigger Point: focuses on areas in deep muscle fiber, specific to injury or overuse of the muscle.
    • Neuromuscular: similar to Trigger Point, it can be the most effect on the back.
    • Prenatal: offered to pregnant mothers who are often in need of release from discomfort caused by carrying the child.
    • Cranial Sacral: alleviates stress within the head bone, spinal column, and sacrum.
    • Assisted Stretching: can help alleviate muscle pain after workouts, with the help of a professional massage therapist. It can also help boost your mobility.

What can I expect during a massage?

    • You will be asked about your medical history, including the recent symptoms you have related to the pain.
    • If pressure if too light or too hard, let your massage therapist know. They will gladly accommodate to what feels good to you. Occasionally, there will be a sensitive spot in your muscle tissue that may feel different depending on how much pressure is applied.  

What can I expect after a massage?

    • No matter what kind of massage you choose, you should feel relaxed after the massage.
    • You may even feel less tension in certain parts of your body, and you may feel more lucid movement than you have before.
    • The feeling of anxiety and depression may lighten if you have experienced these in the past.
    • Encourage yourself to come back and continue massage therapy if you think you may have chronic pain.|
