Learn How Massage Therapy Can Improve Your Health

massage therapy in San Jose.jpgYou may already know that regular massages are a great way to relax and de-stress the body. But did you know that massage therapy is also important for pain relief and injury rehabilitation? Different massage treatments can make a significant difference for your body's overall wellness.

Massage Therapy Enhances Whole Body Wellness

At Insight Chiropractic, our San Jose chiropractor Dr. Forster frequently integrates massage therapy into pain management treatments. New to therapeutic massage? Here’s what you need to know about a couple of important treatment techniques:

#1: Deep tissue massage

If you suffer from back pain, migraines or an acute pain condition, then deep tissue massages can make a big difference for your health. By applying firm pressure to areas of scar tissue and muscle adhesion, our massage therapist helps to release tension trapped within the muscles. This allows the muscles to relax, stopping the cycle of muscle contraction and tension, and supporting the rehabilitation process.

#2: Swedish massage

This style of massage therapy helps the mind and body relax while relieving stiffness and soreness. Massaging tight muscles brings fresh, oxygen-rich blood into the tissue, flushing out toxins and supporting whole body health. Swedish massage lowers cortisol, a hormone associated with stress, while increasing endorphin levels, the body’s natural “feel good” chemical. Minimizing stress helps patients sleep better at night, be more active during the day, have more energy, and focus better at work. After a Swedish massage, our patients leave feeling relaxed and centered.

Dr. Jen helped me fully recover from a car accident when my primary care physician, long-term physical therapy, and therapeutic massage had no benefit at all. I've had really mixed experiences with chiropractors in the past (mostly unhelpful), but Dr. Jen knows techniques that were very effective and restored full range of motion to my neck without pain. I am beyond grateful and have referred one of my best friends to her; the friend is just as delighted as I am. In addition to being uniquely effective, Dr. Jen provides the perfect balance between nurturing human warmth and professional efficiency. I think she's amazing.
