Regular massage achieves much more than relaxation of the body and mind. Here of some of the advanced massages we offer:
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage targets severe muscle spasms that have been there a long time. Deep Tissue Massage reaches the deeper muscle layers and helps break up scar tissue & fibrotic tissue from old injuries or surgeries. Working a specific joint or muscle, the Massage Therapist can access deeper layers of muscle. At Graves Family Chiropractic our Massage Therapist start the massage with light pressure and ease into deep pressure, which is less painful and allows the therapist to effect deeper muscles. This approach is recommended as each person experiences pressure differently. If deep pressure is applied too quickly, the muscles tighten which prevents reaching the deeper layers of muscles.
Prenatal Massage ( Pregnancy Massage )
At Graves Family Chiropractic our Massage Therapist are highly trained in Prenatal Massage, which helps achieve a healthy pain free pregnancy. We work with the body to relieve the common discomforts during pregnancy, such as neck, back and hip pain, leg cramps, headaches, joint pain and swelling. To ensure comfort and safety you will be gently positioned on your side with special body support cushions. Pregnancy Massage can ease labor pains, as well as improve labor and delivery. One of the biggest benefits expectant mothers report is the reduction of physical and mental stress associated with pregnancy. This is achieved by relieving stress to the glandular system which can help balance hormone levels.
Trigger Point Massage
A trigger point is a muscle spasm inside a muscle spasm that traps toxins and inflammation in the muscle. With Trigger Point Therapy pressure is applied to the trigger point and this can refer pain to other parts of the body. When proper pressure is applied to the trigger point there is an immediate release of tension and muscle spasm. This therapy has been known to diminish migraines, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel, hip pain and other pain syndromes that may have been misdiagnosed. At Graves Family Chiropractic our Massage Therapist use Trigger Point Therapy to decrease pain, improve joint range of motion and it feels great.
