Massage therapy not only provides relaxation but can also increase both flexibility and circulation in the muscles and the connective tissues. It helps to reduce toxins in the body and allows the body to heal itself. Minimizing stress has a positive effect on both your mental and physical health.
Several types of massage are available, and your chiropractor will discuss massage therapy options with you to determine which type will provide the most benefits for you.
The lymph system in the body is responsible for detoxifying the body. It circulates through and brings the fluid to the liver. If it is not operating correctly, swelling and toxemia result. A lymphatic massage increases blood flow and reduces swelling.
Stress is a killer and relaxation is a way to fight the stress that so many people are dealing with. It is a gentle massage often combined with aroma therapy which works the upper layer of muscles and can bring on total relaxation.
