A Step to Wellness
At Twin Waves Chiropractic & Wellness, we love massage. It is one of our most requested services. We believe this is because massage therapy can appeal to just about everyone. No matter where you are in life, chances are you would be feeling better after a massage. Here are just some of the benefits of massage therapy:
relieve muscle pain
improve circulation/reduce swelling
improve the immune system
lower heart rate & blood pressure
While a number of our patients come to seek pain relief, we also have people that simply want a stress relieving session. Our therapists our experienced in a variety of different massage styles and excel in determining which style would most benefit you.
We all know what it is and that it is good for us. Do we do it as often as our body needs it? Most people do not. Let our therapists assist you with improving range of motion and muscle flexibility. Some things are better when others do it for us. Stretching is one of those things.
Deep tissue/medical massage
Deep Tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity, such as athletes, and patients who have sustained physical injury. It is also not uncommon for receivers of Deep Tissue Massage to have their pain replaced with a new muscle ache for a day or two. Deep tissue work varies greatly. What one calls deep pressure, another may call light pressure. When receiving deep tissue work it is important to communicate what you are feeling with your therapist.
Trigger Point Massage
This type of massage focuses on areas of muscle tissues that develop "knots" of tension, called trigger points. Trigger points are generally created by injury or overuse and can radiate pain to other parts of the body.
This is the "feel good" massage. It is a full body massage that uses long, flowing strokes, kneading and deep circular movements to help you feel relaxed, energized and invigorated; a great stress reliever.
