Our 4 Favorite Benefits of Massage
Massage is more than a luxurious form of pampering. It comes with a long list of health benefits. At Carey Chiropractic, we’ve chosen our top three benefits of massage:
- Stress reduction
- Muscular pain relief
- Nerve pain relief
- Improved circulation
Massage for Stress Reduction
Stress does a number on the body, including making you tense and hurt all over. It also raises blood pressure, raises cortisol levels (a hormone that makes it easy to gain weight and hard to lose it), makes you tired, gives you headaches, and more. You can find great stress relief through massage because of how it relaxes your body.
Relaxation coaxes your body out of fight-or-flight mode, tells your body to produce less cortisol, and alleviates pain-inducing tension. Our therapists will apply appropriate techniques to help your body destress and relax.
Massage for Muscular Pain Relief
Whether from chronic pain, soreness from intense exercise, or due to various injuries, massage can provide some much needed muscle pain relief. Massage improves flexibility, alleviates tightness and gets your blood flowing. The better the blood flow, the better your body can recover from exercise and heal more efficiently from injury.
Massage for Nerve Pain Relief
When nerve pain is due to an issue with muscle tissue, massage is a great way to achieve pain relief. Tight muscles can squeeze or pinch nerves. Massage coaxes muscles into relax mode, which takes pressure off your nerves. We offer various massage techniques to alleviate nerve pain, including conditions like peripheral neuropathy, sports injuries and migraines.
Massage for Improved Circulation
There are countless benefits of improved circulation, making massage therapy great for your health. Massage encourages better blood flow, which helps lower blood pressure and improves various functions, including better nutrient delivery and oxygenation. Better blood flow also helps your body flush out debris and waste, and reduces swelling. Our massage therapists will assess your circulation needs and apply the most beneficial techniques.
