Rethink Balance...

Chinese records, dating back over three thousand years, substantiate massage therapy as one of the oldest healing methods known to date. Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it will help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural care approach which relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. It is an accepted method of care in physical rehabilitation programs and is also proven beneficial for many chronic conditions such as low back pain, neck pain, headache, arthritis, fatigue, high blood pressure and much more. Massage therapy is also used as a preventative form of care when relieving stress and tension which can lead to disease and illness.

Our Chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored by our chiropractor to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!.

As noted by the nationally recognized public education site ABMP - Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals the basic benefits of massage are but not limited to:

  • Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion
  • Assist with shorter, easier labor for expectant mothers and shorten maternity hospital stays

Benefits of a Professional Massage

If you are looking for an effective way to relax, re-align, and rejuvenate, then you may want to consider massage. Massage can relax muscles, sooth your aches, and help to restore your body's balance. It rejuvenates and makes us better able to handle all the challenges that come with life. Our experienced, professional therapists believe that each client deserves a great revitalizing experience, and exceptional and customized care that addresses individual needs. These therapists know most of us have hectic lifestyles and they want to help relieve the tension associated with our daily stressors.

A relaxation massage is a rather straightforward session using classic Swedish massage techniques. The massage therapist will utilize techniques of applying light to medium pressure dependent upon the client’s preference. This type of massage will often take place at a day spa or resort center. The purpose of the massage is simply to help the client to relieve muscle tension and create an overall feeling of relaxation and euphoria. A therapeutic massage on the other hand is more thorough and is intended to not only provide relaxation and euphoria, but also apply advanced techniques to target and alleviate pain and chronic health issues. Therapeutic massages also provide great preventive care to patients.

At Stanford Chiropractic Center we have a team of professional massage therapists who are trained in the practice of therapeutic massage, as opposed to simple relaxation massage.
