The Health Benefits of Massage Therapy

Dec 30, 2016

Here at AICA Atlanta, massage therapy is one of the more conventional treatment solutions we offer patients who are recovering from injuries and chronic health conditions.

Our patients often exclaim how great they feel after one massage session because of the variety of health benefits provided by this particular solution.

How Massage Therapy Helps

When you schedule a massage therapy session with us, our team of experienced Atlanta chiropractors works directly with licensed massage therapists to inform them of the particular type of treatment your condition requires. At AICA Atlanta, we offer a variety of massage types, including:

  • Prenatal
  • Hot stone
  • Reflexology
  • Deep Tissue
  • Swedish

Health Benefits of Massage Therapy

There are some positive health benefits you can expect to experience after a massage therapy session. Most of our patient’s notice:

Significant stress relief

Living with chronic stress can lead to a long list of health conditions that develop over time, including high blood pressure and depression. Medical studies show that 90 percent of all medical physicians treat patients who suffer from stress-related illnesses.

Massage therapy helps relieve physical and emotional stress, loosening restricted muscles allowing your circulatory system to perform at peaks levels.

Immediate Pain Relief

By providing support to your musculoskeletal system, we can improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and increase the amount of endorphins that flow throughout your body (a specific chemical that is produced by your body and helps you feel good).

These results help catalyze the healing of damaged tissues and reduce adhesions that diminish your body’s ability to heal itself naturally. Massage therapy helps our patients feel better without having to use prescription medications or painkillers that contain harmful side effects.

Improve Immune Performance

Another positive benefit associated with massage therapy is its ability to provide a boost to your immune system. Massage therapy helps eliminate particular barriers that prevent your immune system from performing correctly, similar to Chiropractic Adjustments. When your immune system can operate properly, you are less vulnerable to contagious illnesses that are common during winter.
