At Thalia Chiropractic, we focus on the overall wellness of your body. We strive to go above and beyond what you expect from a chiropractor’s office. For this reason, we also offer relaxing and healthy massage therapy in our Virginia Beach office. Your massage therapy sessions can be a part of your overall chiropractic treatment or they can be scheduled as a stand alone service.
What is Massage Therapy
Massage therapy involves using pressure on the superficial layers of a body’s connective tissue as well as the deeper layers of muscle (depending on the type of massage) in order to promote the healing of muscle tissue, improve muscle function and create a sense of relaxation. Most people think of massage as focusing on the muscles, and it does that, but it can also be used to target ligaments, tendons and fascia (connects skin to muscles). There are many different types of massage and each has general and specific purposes.
Benefits of Massage Therapy
Because there are many different types of massage, there are many benefits that come with regular massage therapy appointments.
- stress relief
- digestive health
- nervous system
- neck pain
- myofascial pain
- sports injuries
- improve joint health
We discuss with you what issues you are having and what you want to achieve with massage treatments. From there, we develop a customized plan with the appropriate massage technique to achieve your wellness goals.
Combining Massage Therapy and Chiropractic
The connection between massage therapy and chiropractic care is built around the idea that natural remedies are preferred and that a relaxed body responds better to chiropractic treatments such as chiropractic adjustments. In addition to the therapeutic effects of massage therapy on the body (and the mind), message therapy may allow you to make more progress in your chiropractic treatments and do so much faster than with chiropractic care alone.
