Benefits of Massage Therapy from Los Gatos Chiropractor
At Insight Chiropractic, our massage therapy
goes far beyond the basics, both with its benefits and the types of massages we offer. Our Los Gatos chiropractor
Dr. Jennifer Forster often includes massage as part of an individualized treatment plan often in conjunction with chiropractic care. We offer various types of traditional massage treatments as well as foot massage treatments in the form of reflexology.
Reflexology and Massage for Relaxation, Pain Relief, Overall Wellness
Whether our massage therapy is implemented for a treating a specific condition or as part of an overall wellness plan, two of the top benefits are relaxation and pain relief. Massage can alleviate tension in muscles and in the mind, helping to alleviate stress, stiffness and soreness. Alleviating the tension can also help decrease the pain of sore muscles. We can target specific areas that require extra attention, such as trigger points and injured tissues, with both our body massage and reflexology.
Reflexology is particularly effective for targeted relief, as this foot massage focuses on particular points on the foot that correspond to different body organs and systems. As a particular reflex point is stimulated, it can bring relief to the corresponding area. This type of foot massage has been effective for treating asthma, headaches, PMS, sinusitis, diabetes, and cardiovascular issues.
Additional benefits of our massage therapy include controlling blood pressure and boosting immunity. Improved circulation is another massage benefit, one that results in increased energy and the promotion of healing. Whether you are recovering from an injury, suffering from anxiety and stress, or simply need a boost to your overall well-being, massage is one of the solutions we offer.
