What Are Some Benefits of Massage?

Massage has many benefits. These include the following:

  • Reduces pain
  • Promotes relaxation
  • Reduces muscle tension
  • Relieves stress
  • Reduces anxiety
  • Eases depression
  • Promotes better sleep
  • Increases range of motion
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Helps heal injuries

If you haven’t been to our office before, there will be some brief paperwork to fill out before your massage begins. These forms will let your massage therapist know what you’re coming in to get help with and any other pertinent information.

Please note that if you cancel with less than 24 hours’ notice or are a no-show, there will be a $35 fee charged.

Who can benefit from massage?

Everyone! That’s because there’s nothing harmful about massage. This safe, drug-free modality is highly beneficial for people of all ages.

Do I have to be a chiropractic patient to get a massage?

You do not need to be a patient to schedule a massage at our office. In fact, we have patients of other chiropractors in the area who come here for their massages because they love what our massage therapists do!

If you are a patient here, however, Dr. Avise may recommend massage as a part of your care plan. It works hand-in-glove with chiropractic. We find that people get better faster while receiving chiropractic and massage therapy together.

Because I'm already in pain, will it hurt to get a massage?

Although you may feel you’re in too much pain to receive massage therapy, our qualified massage therapists know how deep to go, and what each person needs instead of creating more pain during or after the massage.

Will I get the same massage as everyone else?

No, no two massages are the same. Your therapist will provide a customized massage to address your particular issue.

How should I prepare for my first session?

If you are a new patient coming in for your first session, we recommend that you wear loose-fitting clothing that you can move freely in. That’s because your MT will need to have you move during various assessments. Communication with your therapist is also key. If you have any concerns or questions at any time during the massage, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Will I need to undress for my massage?

You can undress to your level of comfort. Some patients choose to undress completely while others opt to leave some clothing on such as underwear. Rest assured that you will be appropriately draped throughout your session.
