Massage is one of the greatest investments anyone can make in their overall comfort and quality of life. It’s incredibly relaxing and meditative in the moment, and the benefits of the work are longer lasting and further reaching than most realize.
That’s because there’s a network of connective tissue that spans the whole body, communicating faster than the regular system of sensory nerves, and carrying a unique intelligence that scientists are only beginning to understand. This tissue (and the network it forms) is known as “fascia”. Researchers originally believed that it was just the casing that our muscles came bundled in, with no greater sensitivity than the outside of a sausage. But the more we’ve learned about fascia, the more we’re sure that it’s an information superhighway capable of enhancing the quality of our days when it functions properly.
When fascia gets aggravated, it tenses and twists, which can cause and/or exacerbate injury to the joints, muscles and other connective tissues. A good example is the fascia around the knee and lower thigh. A patient presenting with knee pain and a normal gait may need to release the tisses around the joint in order to get out of pain (and stay there!).
This is where massage comes in. By working the tension out of the fascia and freeing the troubled area from the old movement patterns, positive habits have a chance to become the “new norm”. The whole body starts working better as a system, improving everything from sleep to hormone health. When the treatments are delivered in collaboration with chiropractic adjustments, the improvements can be truly miraculous.
The therapists at Symmetry are uniquely qualified and experienced to work with all populations and all conditions, from the chronic to the acute.
