Getting a massage is usually considered as a luxury.
Truth is, most people consider getting a massage as something that isn’t a need. It’s something that most people think of as just a comfort. Sure, it brings much relaxation, but you probably didn’t think of it as something that has concrete health benefits.
Even more striking, a massage can be made even more comfortable, relaxing, and give more health benefits if it’s planned out beforehand and done by your chiropractor.
Here at Hinterland Chiropractic, we believe that a massage should be more than “just a massage.” It should be a holistic activity that provides a lot of benefits, ranging from the superficial ones like relaxation to concrete ones like optimum health.
The Benefits of Getting a Massage
A massage should be something that you get not simply out of whim, or because you’re just looking for relaxation, although the second is a valid reason. Getting a massage should be done because you have specific goals, depending on the benefits you are aware of, is the ideal way of looking at it.
Massages have a lot of benefits aside from giving relaxation, and these are all well-documented and scientifically proven. Some of these are more well-known, such as giving relaxation and serving as a form of stress relief. However, while those are significant in their own way, massages also have several other important health benefits.
One of the most important health benefits of a massage is reducing blood pressure. This is particularly important for individuals with hypertension, or at least stressful lives; this allows them to avoid any illnesses related to high blood pressure.
Furthermore, massages can actually give long-term pain relief. This is especially important for those that engage in very physical activities, such as sports or have blue-collar jobs.
Why Massage Goes Hand In Hand With Chiropractic
Now, you might be thinking, yes, massages do have a lot of benefits, and have actual health benefits, but what does it have to do with chiropractic?
First, a chiropractor has knowledge about a wide range of topics related to the body, as well as the relation between the parts of your body and your overall health. As such, your chiropractor can provide you with a massage that is tailor-fit to your body.
Second, a massage can, in particular, help greatly with any issues you have related to your spine and nervous and musculoskeletal systems in general. Those are, incidentally, two areas given special attention by chiropractors.
These two combined, make a massage given by our massage therapist much more beneficial. Aside from that, massages go well with chiropractic principles. Altogether, their respective benefits overlap and have a greater overall effect on your overall wellness.
Considerations When Getting a Massage With Chiropractic
As with any health-related matter, getting a massage should be something that should be planned carefully. Several key factors to consider when getting it include:
- Goals – what in particular you want to get from the massage
- Existing conditions – the current status of your mind and body
- Current treatments – therapies you undergo are considered so the massage seamlessly provide additional benefits
With all of these considerations, your trusted chiropractor at Hinterland Chiropractic can help you by providing expert advice on what kind of massage suits you best. Also, any pre-existing conditions you might can be accurately identified and thus, addressed accordingly.
