Woman receiving a massageCircle of Life Chiropractic offers massage therapy services including:

Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don’t get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.

Cupping Massage

Cupping Therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts vacuum cups on your skin to stimulate the underlying tissue for a few minutes and create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and is a type of deep-tissue massage.

Among it’s benefits, it’s side effects may result in circular discoloration (ranging in shades due to the health of the underlying tissue). Old trapped blood gets pulled out of tight or restricted muscle tissue and it rises to the surface of the skin. This side effect only lasts 3-7 days after treatment.

Hot Stone Therapy

Hot Stone Therapy is a style of massage where heated stones are placed at specific sites on your body to deepen relaxation and promote circulation in your muscles. Muscles that are heated with these stones release tension and stress much more deeply and quickly than with a traditional massage. The overall experience is very relaxing, nurturing, and rejuvenating.

Prenatal Massage

A prenatal massage can help relieve back pain, improve sleep, and boost mood during your pregnancy. It can also decrease stress, help you relax and reduce labor complications. Prenatal massage is best given while you lie on your side propped up by pillows. Neck and shoulder massage is a safe sitting-up option, as well.

*In conclusion*,

When you choose both chiropractic care and massage therapy, your overall health and wellness is improved. The body’s muscles and skeletal system work together. For example, the body’s nerves can become inflamed after an injury. Both massage therapy and chiropractic treatments will reduce muscular restriction and nervous system inflammation, allowing both systems to function at a higher level. The benefits of both reduce of soreness, pain relief, reduce risk of injury, and increase range of motion.
