Massage Therapy Services
According to the American Massage Therapy Association, massage therapy provides health benefits such as improved range of motion, enhanced circulation and increased endorphin levels. At Windsor Hills Family Chiropractic Center, we team up with certified massage therapists who specialize in this complementary therapy to bring total body healing and comfort to our patients.
Massage therapy services include:
One of the most recognized massage techniques, the Swedish massage is meant to relax your whole body, while improving circulation, flexibility and pain management. Your therapist may apply circular pressure with his or her hands, tapping, bending, firm kneading and stretching throughout your session.
Trigger Point Therapy/ Myofascial Release
A trigger point is a localized knot or spasm in the muscle that causes referred pain in tissues supplied by nerves. Your therapist will perform a safe and effective hands-on technique to apply sustained, isolated pressure and release to alleviate the source of pain. You may be asked to participate in deep breathing exercises while identifying the location and level of discomfort.
Through trigger point therapy, patients are known to experience relief after just one treatment. Those who receive treatment regularly also benefit from natural pain and stress management.
Pregnancy or Prenatal Massage
Expectant mothers often experience tension caused by the extra weight they carry during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy. Our specially trained therapists work carefully to soothe nerves, aches and pains, reduce stress, stimulate blood and lymph circulation, and relieve backaches and sciatica, among other added benefits specific to pregnancy.
Our compassionate therapists are trained to comfort you, while relieving pain, stress and anxiety as it relates to your cancer diagnosis. Cancer massage therapy helps to improve sleep, relaxation, immune function, among other benefits. Massage techniques are tailored to meet your physical and emotional needs. From a relaxing experience to relieving nausea or pain, our therapists will join you on this journey to healing.
Deep Tissue Massage
Just as Dr. Claire focuses on the structural misalignments through chiropractic care, our massage therapists can target muscle adhesions through deep tissue massage. Similar to Swedish massage, deep tissue offers a ‘deeper pressure’ which aids in releasing prolonged muscle tension. Your therapist will work on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia in order to reduce things like heart rate and stress while enhancing your mood and level of relaxation.
