Certified Massage Therapy can benefit such conditions as muscle pain and spasm, headaches, whiplash, and soreness related to injury and stress, among others. Massage can also help reduce swelling, help correct posture, improve body motion, and facilitate the elimination of toxins from the body. We feel that massage therapy is a perfect adjunct to the chiropractic adjustment. Myofascial Release engages the living fascia through gentle pressure and stretches held for several minutes each. Fascia is a dynamic liquid crystaline connective tissue in the living body. It has a tensile strength of up to 2, 000 pounds per square inch. In its fluid state, this allows for a great degree of three-dimensional movement while maintaining structural integrity. However, when it becomes restricted due to injury, stress, or chronic inflammation, it tends to solidify and tighten down around tissues. When this happens, the tensile strength that gave us such freedom of movement now works against us and causes pain. It;s like trying to fit a size 9 foot into a size 7 shoe. Myofascial Release is a safe and effective gentle approach to produce lasting changes in the body by releasing fascial restrictions down to the cellular level. Perfect for the patient experiencing lingering pain from recent injury, or those with chronic pain, fibromyalgia or pain of unknown cause.
