Massage Therapy

What is Medical Massage Therapy?

Massage Therapy was at one time a luxury treatment found at spas and salons. Today, its benefits extend into mainstream medical centers, corporate offices and chiropractic offices. There’s a good reason for this. Taking care of soft tissue problems before they domino into more pain and discomfort just makes sense, and massage treats these issues where they often begin; in muscle tissue.

Medical Massage  •  Shiatsu Massage  •  Swedish Massage

Even if you are undergoing spinal adjustment therapy for spinal subluxation, the problem is only partially treated if the adjoining muscle tissue isn’t treated. Muscles that remain tight will undo the work your chiropractor has done to realign your vertebrae.

Massage Therapy is effective for low back pain, upper back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, stress, slow healing issues, and as ongoing therapy for scoliosis, sciatica, osteoarthritis and other disorders.

Massage Therapy techniques include sustained pressure and stretching to address trigger points, with a focus on practices tailored to you and your issues.

Why we provide Massage Therapy at Balanced Health Medical.

When Massage Therapy  is included in Chiropractic Treatment, studies have shown the recovery times are faster and more permanent. Massage Therapy also is the perfect complement to spinal adjustments because it creates a more relaxed, healthier muscle tissue and treatments proceed optimally. Massage Therapy also helps Spinal Adjustments last longer.

We have found that a multi-pronged approach to treating most disorders or to helping maintain balance and harmony is best. That’s why when you walk into any Balanced Health Medical office, you’ll have available to you many related treatment options. Contact one of our locations in New York City. Massage Therapy, Spinal Decompression Therapy, Cold Laser Therapy and other techniques combine well with chiropractic adjustment and over time – chiropractic care works with your body’s natural ability to heal and this doesn’t happen in one or two visits – you can find relief, greater mobility, more energy, faster healing and a healthier life.
