Massage Therapy is a rapidly growing addition to health and fitness routines, and an effective complement to other health care services. Many people seek therapeutic massage as a natural means to promote healthy body functioning, and to enhance the body's own restorative powers. In addition, many of our Seattle patients who experience low back pain, neck pain, headaches, hip pain, leg pain, stiffness, muscle tightness, and other symptoms, often respond very favorably to massage therapy!
The most common reasons for getting a massage are:
- General Relaxation
- Relieve Sore or Tight Muscles
- Relieve Tension Headaches
- Recover from Sports Activities
- General Health and Fitness
- Improve Circulation
- Complement other Health Care
- Injuries from an auto accident or work injury
Most importantly, therapeutic massage is an effective complement to chiropractic care. Problems in the muscular-skeletal system, including abnormal posture, can impede the natural healing process and often cause dysfunction and pain. Most chiropractors would agree that it is important to treat soft tissue such as muscles and tendons to help prevent and correct subluxation, and lesson the accompanying pain.
Together, chiropractic and massage provide you with a more complete and effective system of health care.
