Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy in Oakland and AlamedaMassage as a healing tool has been around for thousands of years in many cultures. For centuries, Eastern societies have been using massage to treat various medical conditions.

Over the last decade, Western medicine has begun utilizing massage at a growing rate. Massage is becoming an integral part of healthcare. Research continues to show there are numerous benefits to therapeutic touch from disease prevention, treatment of chronic disease and injuries, to alleviating the body’s response to the stresses of modern life.

Touch is a natural human reaction to pain and stress. Our instinct when we hurt ourselves, hit our head or have a sore neck is to rub it. Massage creates chemical changes in the body that reduce pain and stress. Therapeutic Massage is a non-invasive, drug free, humanistic approach to aid the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

How to make Massage Therapy more effective?

The answer is to schedule regular massages and incorporate with chiropractic care. Chiropractic Treatments work to correct spinal misalignments which put strain on muscles and other soft tissue, causing pain and discomfort. This therapeutic can help relax the muscles allowing more movement during corrective chiropractic traction and manual adjustments. It can also prolong the effects of chiropractic care helping to maintain a more proper alignment for a longer period of time. Both massage and chiropractic treatments reduce pain, increase function, and improve overall health. Scheduling Chiropractic Treatments and Therapeutic Massage together will help you get the maximum benefits from both therapies.

The effects are cumulative. Build on the work from one session to the next by scheduling a monthly massage. The more frequently you receive massage the better you will feel. Making time for you should be a priority.
