Massage Therapy Q&A

What benefits will I gain from massage therapy?

Massage is well-known for helping people destress and relax. While your mood improves and you feel better after a massage, reducing your stress also protects you from serious problems caused by constantly elevated stress hormones, such as high blood pressure, weight gain, and heart disease.

However, massage therapy does more than help you relax. A massage triggers physical changes that:

  • Relieve pain
  • Promote healing 
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Improve joint mobility
  • Lower your heart rate and blood pressure
  • Increase blood and lymph circulation
  • Strengthen your immune system
  • Release endorphins (natural painkillers)
  • Lower stress hormone levels
  • Relax muscles, tendons, and ligaments

Your Repair Recover Restore provider may include massage as part of your treatment as you recover from an injury, after surgery, or when a chronic condition limits your mobility.

What health conditions improve with massage?

At Repair Recover Restore, experienced massage therapists customize your treatment, choosing the technique that meets your unique physical needs. As a result, massage therapy can improve most musculoskeletal conditions, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Chronic pain
  • Migraines
  • Sciatica
  • Sports injuries
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Knee pain
  • Joint pain
  • Strained muscles

At Repair Recover Restore, massage therapy may be used alone or as one part of your holistic chiropractic care.

What techniques do massage therapists use?

Massage therapists are skilled in numerous massage techniques. A few examples include:

  • Swedish massage
  • Deep tissue massage
  • Myofascial release
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Acupressure
  • Sports massage
  • Neuromuscular massage therapy
  • Lymphatic drainage massage

The hand movements used in each technique achieve different results. For example, a relaxing Swedish massage uses circular pressure and kneading movement, a trigger point massage uses deep finger pressure to relax a muscle knot, and deep kneading targets muscle soreness or strain.

You can get a sports massage before and/or after athletic activities. Before your game, a massage can prevent injuries and improve your performance. After intense activities, your massage promotes muscle recovery and healing.

The Repair Recover Restore team includes licensed massage therapists (LMTs) to provide high-quality therapeutic massage during chiropractic treatment and rehabilitation after an injury or surgery.
