Benefits of massage are abundant, and can help with aspects of health and well-being you may not expect.
Decreasing pain & stress, increasing range of motion, improving nervous system function & increasing blood flow and lymphatic flow to assist with the movement of nutrients that help heal the body to name a few.
Here are a few specific reasons to come in for a massage:
Pain– Neck, Back, Body
Athletic Performance and Recovery
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Muscle Strains & Aches
Pre & Post Surgery
Anxiety and/or Depression
WHY MANUAL OSTEOPATHY?
Manual Osteopathic Therapy utilizes thorough assessment protocols with manual therapy techniques to bring balance back to the body.
Searching for the root cause of the body's pain and/or dysfunction is always the priority. This can be achieved by looking at both the body's structure and its function.
Osteopathic Practitioners treat a wide variety of health conditions through the many systems of the body, including but not limited to musculoskeletal pain, vascular imbalances, nerve pain and dysfunction, and the visceral (organ) systems.
Much like massage therapy, cupping helps to decrease pain. Your nervous system suppresses pain receptors when a stimulus (the cups) are applied to the area.
The negative pressure (suction) applied to the body manipulates soft tissue to create distinct changes in skin, fat, fascia, and muscle trajectories that help in tissue health, range of motion, pain and movement of fluids within the body.
WHY HOME CARE?
Being diligent in your home care can be the difference between staying in pain and overcoming it. It's not uncommon to loose motivation or completely forget all the home care provided to you after a session.
