Massage Therapy FAQs

Massage Therapy FAQs

Even if you have had a spa-style massage, you probably have questions about massage therapy and how it relates to chiropractic care. At Spinal Health and Rehab Integrative Medicine, we understand how these two natural treatments work hand in hand to relieve pain and reduce the risk of injury. If you live in Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte, Arcadia, North Port, Cape Coral, North Fort Myers, or the surrounding area, contact our chiropractors with any questions about massage therapy.

What is Massage Therapy?

During a massage therapy session, a licensed practitioner manipulates the body’s soft tissues, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissues. Depending on the patient’s needs, massage therapy can include gentle pressure, deep pressure, and stretches. Massage therapy can help relieve pain, loosen muscles, and increase your flexibility, which makes it a perfect partner to chiropractic adjustments. Often, our chiropractors will recommend massage therapy either immediately before or after a chiropractic adjustment.

What are the Benefits of Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy has a wide range of both physical and mental benefits. Massage therapy can help with reducing muscle tension, improving circulation, and increasing flexibility and joint mobility. These benefits make massage therapy an ideal way to treat back pain, neck pain, headaches, and soft tissue injuries. Massage therapy is also relaxing and can help boost your mood and decrease anxiety.

What Should I Expect During My Massage Therapy Session?

After discussing your specific needs and treatment plan, we will guide you through the process and help you feel comfortable. You will only need to remove clothing on the area to be treated, and you will remain covered and draped so that only the treatment area is exposed. During the massage therapy treatment, we will ask questions, and you should feel comfortable asking for lighter or firmer pressure. After the treatment, you may feel some soreness but you will likely feel looser, relaxed, and energized.
