SF Custom Chiropractic is your one-stop-wellness-shop that offers not only chiropractic treatment but also massage therapy. This is one of our unique offerings, as many chiropractic clinics do not offer massage (similar to how a lot of massage therapists do not offer chiropractic care).
But isn’t chiropractic care enough?
If you have been a patient with SF Custom Chiropractic and if you have made an appointment to get a deep tissue massage from one of our licensed therapists, you have probably noticed that we advise scheduling an adjustment with one of our chiropractors immediately after a massage treatment.
How does deep tissue massage prime chiropractic treatment?
Massage relaxes the body and soft tissues, making chiropractic adjustments more comfortable for the patient
The environment associated with a massage soothes the patient, calming and preparing the mind for receiving an adjustment
The work accomplished by a massage prolongs the effectiveness of adjustments. Massages release muscle tension, which make muscles less likely to pull joints out of alignment
By what mechanisms do massages benefit our body, and what are those benefits?
Massages have the power to:
Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion
Stretch muscles that are weak, tight, or atrophied
Stimulate lymph flow, the body’s natural defense system, and, therefore, enhance immunity
Decrease the occurrence of muscle spasms and cramping
Contribute to easier labor for expectant mothers
Ease medication dependence
Lessen depression and anxiety
Relieve migraine pain
Regenerate tissues, which in turn can reduce scar tissue and stretch marks
Improve circulation by pumping oxygen and nutrients into tissues and organs
Studies have found that stress is one of the major contributing factors to the most prevalent forms of death in the United States. A positive correlation between massage therapy and health-related qualify of life exists.
If you are still unsure about the nature of and benefits of massage therapy, consult with one of our chiropractors. They can offer feedback and connect you to one of our therapists. irection and guide our massage therapist to which areas to focus their therapy on. This means that both the massage therapist and the doctors are on the same page and are dedicated to the same goal…getting you better.
