Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is not just a relaxing way to spend an afternoon. Massage therapy is an effective tool to relieve pain and inflammation in the body. Chiropractors typically employ massage therapists on their staff to continue working on patients’ inflammation issues. However, many medical spas also offer massage therapy along with their other services.

Massage therapy offers many health benefits to clients. Here is a short list of some of those benefits:

* Stress Relief
Massage can lower a client’s heart rate as well as insulin levels after one session. These things also help achieve a healthier lifestyle.

* Posture Improvement
By massaging the body, a massage therapist can manipulate the body into better posture. Bad posture can actually be corrected through massage.

* Improved Flexibility
People live their lives every day, and while they live their lives, their joints and muscles can become stiff and painful. Massage therapy can aid in improving a client’s range of motion as well as prevent injury.

* Headache Relief
The number of people who experience headaches is consistently rising. Some endure crippling migraine headaches. Consistent massage therapy can aid in preventing pressure and pain in the head.

* Improved Immune System
Massage can actually stimulate the body to improve its own immune system. Our bodies can then ward off colds, flu and other more serious diseases.

* Relax, Relax, And Relax!
Massage therapy is effective in improving the body’s flexibility, posture and immune system, but it is also simply RELAXING! More massage can help a person relax on a deeper level.

Massage therapy is not just an “elite” way to spend a lazy afternoon. Massage therapy is medically-proven to improve overall health and well-being. Many medical spas have added massage therapists to their list of services due to its incredible benefits. Check with your local spa or chiropractic office today.

Chiropractic Manipulation

In the past, chiropractors were seen as “quacks” by many people, but that is not the case any longer. Chiropractors have seen a very strong uptick in patients visiting them, desiring to be rid of their headaches, backache, fibromyalgia, etc. Many medical spas are now employing chiropractors on their staff to assist their clients in their individual wellness programs.

If you have never visited a chiropractor before, then you may not know what chiropractic treatment is. Let’s take a brief look.

* What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a natural form of maintaining optimal good health in order to ward off disease. Chiropractors concentrate on the disorders that affect a person’s nervous system and musculoskeletal system. By utilizing manual therapies like spinal manipulation, a chiropractor can assist in restoring proper body alignment. Good alignment will help the body to heal itself naturally without any medication or surgery and to heal muscle aches and pain.

* What Happens in a Chiropractic Adjustment?
A chiropractor uses his or her hands or specific devices to apply pressure to areas of the body needing adjustment (neck, spine, pelvis, etc.). This procedure reduces inflammation and aids in preventing injuries.

* How are Chiropractors Educated?
Be assured that Doctors of chiropractic education go through a highly rigorous program before they are allowed to practice. Their education includes four years of a pre-med course of study that includes undergraduate classes in biology, physics, and chemistry (inorganic and organic). Students who are then accepted to a chiropractic university go through a four to five year professional study program. Examples of classes they take are human anatomy, physiology, nutrition, rehabilitation, etc. Before being certified to practice, doctors of chiropractic must pass national board examination as well as state license exams.

Chiropractic is another way to achieve optimal health and wellness.
