As part of Oakridge Chiropractic’s multi-disciplinary approach to getting your body functioning at its best, our clinic has several fully qualified, registered and experienced massage therapists on staff who offer a full range of massage techniques to their patients.
Massage therapy is the art of systematic and scientific manipulations of the soft tissue of the body. It has been practiced therapeutically around the world for centuries, and today, it’s a form of natural therapy for the wear and tear of daily living; helping with stress, injuries, relaxation and general well-being. Because massage benefits every system of the body (including our nervous, muscular and immune systems), it can help with a range of different health problems.
Regardless of the source of your pain or discomfort, massage is a drug-free alternative for relief. But massage can help with much more than pain relief. It can restore and maintain the function of our bodies, relieve muscle stiffness, reduce stress, relax muscles, enhance sleep quality, improve circulation and create a general sense of well-being. Massage is also recognized for effectively treating such conditions as Fibromyalgia, TMJ, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, tendonitis and bursitis.
An increasing number of people are turning to massage therapy to seek these benefits.
Massage therapy ranges from a deep tissue, therapeutic massage to a light relaxation massage. All kinds of massage are effective in releasing muscle tension and stress. There are also a range of massage techniques, allowing for a customized approach to patients’ individual needs and preferences. Massage works especially well in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments. Many patients see a massage therapist for weekly or monthly maintenance visits to maintain the benefits.
