Different Types of Massage Offered at Our Chiropractic Center in Lexington, SC
Swedish Massage: Swedish is a traditional massage that consists of kneading, gliding strokes, tapping, and shaking movements. It can be highly effective because of the positive effects it produces on all layers and systems of the body. Swedish massage affects the nerves, muscles, glands and circulation as well as promotes overall health and well-being.
Trigger Point Massage: Trigger point massage focuses on releasing trigger points—these are small, tight knots that develop in the muscles. At times, they can cause pain in other areas of the body. Trigger point massage involves a more targeted approach focused directly on releasing painful trigger points, so these sessions are meant to be therapeutic and results-oriented.
Myofascial Release: Myofascial release is a specialized, hands-on therapy that affects the recovery of soft tissue and fascial tension. It also works to release restrictions within these networks, enabling hard and stuck areas to become soft and mobile again.
Massage Therapy Complements Our Chiropractic Care & Rehabilitation Programs
Massage therapy plans tailored to meet the needs of each patient. It can be coordinated with chiropractic care for the best results. Techniques used at our Lexington facility may include stroking, tapping, kneading, vibration, friction, compression, rocking and different forms of pressure to the muscles and soft tissue depending on the type of massage you receive. During a session, some specific motions and vibrations can be applied with mechanical devices. Oil, lotions and powders are also used to reduce friction.
While many people may see massage as a luxury, it can also assist in your recovery or treatment plan in addition to becoming part of a health regimen. We utilize massage therapy independently or in conjunction with chiropractic care in order to help you achieve optimal results. You will feel better and more relaxed because of our unique integrative approach. Call Old Mill Chiropractic & Family Wellness to schedule your appointment today.
