Healthier Muscles and Joints
The endorphins released through chiropractic and massage increases blood flow, which in turn aids the body in elimination of muscular waste byproducts and helps the body break the cycle of constant pain creating stress, which increases the pain. People report fewer aches and pains, and less stiffness. Range of motion is increased, and joint flexibility is improved.
Muscles are relaxed and softened, and spasms and cramping are reduced. Muscles are also exercised and stretched, which is particularly important for people who cannot exercise themselves.
Circulation plays a key role in reducing stress and fatigue it increases and brings nutrient rich oxygen to the organs and tissues. Blood pressure is lowered. As the lymph system is stimulated, which is part of the body’s natural defense system, immunity is boosted.
Massage Therapy Improves Flexibility
As we age, our joints tighten and we lose the range of motion we once enjoyed in our youth. One of the main reasons we become less flexible as we get older has to do with certain changes that take place in our connective tissues. As we age, our bodies gradually loose fluid and dehydrate.
Massage therapy is an effective treatment for increasing and maintaining flexibility and motion. By working on muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, and joints, massage can stimulate the production and retention of our bodies’ natural lubricants between the connective tissue fibers, making stretching and movement easier, and keeping the body flexible.
