Massage Therapy in Lansing

Patient receiving massageMassage has been practiced for thousands of years. There are numerous styles of massage using a variety of pressures, movements, and techniques. All involve pressing, rubbing, or manipulating muscles and other soft tissues using just the hands and fingers, which has proven to be an effective method of relieving stress on the body.

A non-invasive method, massage therapy can benefit any part of the body, including the neck, shoulders, back, hips, and extremities. More people are incorporating it into their wellness routine to help relieve their pain and suffering from injuries.

Why Do I Need Massage Therapy?

Medical practitioners have known for years how issues in the nervous system can affect other bodily systems, including the musculoskeletal system. Muscle tension may cause the body to be out of alignment; massage therapy releases the tension, allowing adjustments to go deeper and last longer. Correction of structural issues is easier, and patients experience less discomfort.

Adding massage therapy and chiropractic care to the care plan enhances both methods of care by improving lymphatic drainage and blood flow by releasing tension in affected areas in the body.

Combining massage therapy with any other modalities increases the benefits the patient receives, helping them maintain optimum health and enjoy life to the fullest. That’s one of the reasons we invite our new patients to have a free massage session when they start care.
