Massage Therapy at Lifetime Chiro

Massage has been in use for thousands of years. Throughout the years, different variations have been developed to address particular problems. More people are incorporating it into their wellness routine and to get relief from injuries.

What is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy, like chiropractic, is considered part of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). These therapies are non-invasive and provide our patients with additional methods to achieve their health goals.

Massage therapy is the practice of using the hands and fingers to manipulate muscles, ligaments and tendons to relieve stress on the body. Some therapists may use mechanical devices to achieve these results.

Our therapist, Judy, uses a combination of deep tissue, trigger point, hot stone, cupping, Gua Sha and others to achieve the best results for her patients.

The health benefits available from massage therapy are many. It may help with:

  • Pain relief
  • Stress reduction
  • Nerve related issues

  • Headaches/migraines
  • Muscle tightness
  • Sports injuries

This non-invasive method may be added to your care plan for faster, more lasting results. It works well in conjunction with chiropractic care. After a massage session, muscles are more relaxed, allowing the doctor to adjust you more easily and deeper. Massage may also help you hold the adjustment longer.

With over five years of experience, Judy has helped many patients deal with their muscle and ligament issues. Treatments have relieved muscle tensions allowing subluxations to be more evident. The chiropractor is now able to concentrate care in the appropriate area for best results.

Massage therapy at Lifetime Chiro is not covered by insurance. Sessions run for 90 minutes, and we ask you to be open about your prior and current health status. This will allow your therapist to help you achieve the most beneficial results from your sessions.

How will I feel after the massage therapy treatment?

Most people feel very relaxed. Some may find long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity are gone. There may be a period of lethargy at first, followed by increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity. It’s recommended you drink plenty of water after your massage to flush out toxins released from your soft tissues during the massage.
Will the massage hurt?

This depends on the type of massage and the depth of the strokes. A light, relaxing massage that doesn’t probe deeply into the muscles, shouldn’t hurt. A good massage, even a really deep tissue massage, should always stay in the ‘feels good’ hurt range. Pain may indicate the muscle is injured or inflamed, and pressure should be adjusted.
How often should I get massage and how many sessions will I need?

It varies from person to person. Each person and their condition is unique, and their ability to heal and recover from injury or tension will be different. Your therapist and doctor will discuss with you and make recommendations.
