At Meek Chiropractic in Springfield, we provide massage therapy as a holistic health experience. We have dedicated chiropractors who are willing to offer the services that you need and deserve. However, if you have never had a massage, you might wonder how it can help. You might also have other questions about the message. Fortunately, we have provided a guide for massage FAQs.
What should you expect during your first massage session?
Our team will request you to fill out a form about your health history. After that, we will ask you some questions to determine the areas you need to work on. In that way, our chiropractors can determine if massage therapy is appropriate for you and inform you of the types of massage therapies we offer at Meek Chiropractic.
How can massage help in injury relief?
Depending on your injury, the affected tissue will need massage treatment for you to recover properly. Fortunately, we offer a Swedish massage which is a light technique that can boost blood flow to the injured area. The injured area will be supplied with the required nutrients to heal faster and relieve any swelling and inflammation to ease discomfort.
How does a massage help chronic pain?
Deep tissue massage can assist in dissolving adhesions, common in injuries that contribute to reduced mobility and increased pain. In this case, we offer trigger point and deep tissue massage therapy to help relieve your muscle knots associated with fibromyalgia and other conditions. Receiving massage can also contribute to enhanced blood flow that can minimize degenerative joint pain.
Does a massage hurt?
Our primary purpose in providing massage therapy is to relieve your pain and not to increase it. However, some deep massage techniques might be uncomfortable for a short period, but the relief you will experience will be well worth it. Lighter techniques, like Swedish massage, will not cause any pain.
What do I do during your massage treatment?
Ensure you make yourself comfortable. If our team wishes to adjust your position, we will either move you or request you to move the body's required part. Most people prefer to relax entirely or close their eyes during a session. Others prefer to talk with the chiropractor. It is your massage, and we will allow you to do anything that you think will make you relax. Most importantly, it would help if you did not hesitate to ask our chiropractors any questions that you might have.
