Massage Therapy at Discover Life Chiropractic
Massage therapy is a popular treatment for people suffering from chronic pain, migraines, stiffness in their joints, tendonitis, or various other conditions. Massage therapy is beneficial for reducing tension, realigning the musculoskeletal system, and improving the healing process of injuries. Massage therapy can also help increase blood flow to injured or tense areas, which leads to a better mood and mental clarity while also reducing stress levels. At Discover Life Chiropractic in Tacoma, WA, we are proud to offer specialized therapy sessions unique to the patient's needs.
Benefits of Specialized Massage Therapy
Massage therapy offers many benefits. Massage therapy increases flexibility and decreases muscle tension. When the correct pressure is applied to the affected areas, it reduces physical pain. Massage therapy helps to nourish the soft tissues by improving circulation. It also helps to flush out any toxins causing inflammation and discomfort.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage focuses on working deep into the layers of muscles and connective tissues. This type of massage can help alleviate chronic pain and restore proper muscle function, making it ideal for those suffering from issues such as lower back pain, stress-related conditions, or neck stiffness. Deep tissue massage therapy can significantly increase circulation in the affected area, leading to relaxation of tense muscles while also releasing toxins and other waste materials that could cause discomfort.
Craniosacral massage focuses on the cranial bones, spine, and sacrum. It relieves tension in these areas through gentle, rhythmic movements of the patient's head and body. We use light adjustments to stimulate nerve endings, releasing toxins or other fluids stored in those tissues. This fluid may be causing inflammation or pressure build-up that leads to pain or discomfort throughout the body. Craniosacral massage has been proven to reduce headache frequency while improving the quality of sleep for patients with various ailments that previously interrupted their sleep.
Facial massage can reduce headaches and improve sleep quality in patients experiencing chronic headaches or suffering from illnesses that make it difficult to sleep. Facial massages can also help release tension in facial muscles while lifting the skin and making the muscles firmer. After a thorough assessment, we can see if facial massage therapy is right for you. Patients often report seeing results within hours after their first session.
