Massage and Vascular Therapy Sessions Now Available!
The healing benefits of massage and other bodywork therapies in relieving stress are well established. Stress is said to be at the root of as much as 90% of chronic illnesses. Did you know that chronic stress even hinders blood flow in our body. Without proper blood flow, our body ages more quickly, cells die, energy is reduced, our immune system is depressed, we have more aches and pains, and quality of life is diminished.
At Foresight Chiropractic, our senior massage therapists now offer therapeutic massage and BEMER vascular therapy sessions together. This combination treatment helps to improve relaxation and circulation while reducing and eliminating aches, pains and stiffness.
Massage therapy has been around for thousands of years, and today there are many massage styles with a variety of techniques. An important ally in your healthcare, massage is extremely popular for its benefits as well as the ability to completely relax the body. There is nothing that ages us more than chronic stress and poor circulation, and many people who regularly use massage and BEMER therapy report an improvement in their overall state of well-being and a feeling of being more youthful.
BEMER Vascular Therapy improves blood flow through the capillaries, which is 74% of our overall circulatory system. Improving circulation, oxygen and nutrient delivery to the cells and removing waste provides tremendous advantageous to our health naturally without any negative side effects.
Let’s look at a few benefits of massage combined with BEMER vascular therapy:
Counteracting the Effects of a Sedentary Lifestyle
Modern life demands a great deal of time spent sitting down, which causes postural stress and reduced blood flow because our bodies were designed to move. Prolonged periods spent in front of a desk or on the computer or phone can cause severe stress to build up in the neck and shoulder areas, which may manifest in a forward head and rounded shoulders type of posture. This causes a stiff and achy neck, headaches or migraines, weakness and pain in the lower back and respiratory issues from compressing the lungs. Anxiety and depression can also be a result of poor posture and just the appearance of aging.
Relief from Chronic Pain
Underlying causes of chronic pain involving the nervous and muscular system can be treated with therapeutic massage and vascular therapy sessions. Improved blood flow, increased oxygen at the cellular level, and removal of toxins in the body enables muscles to relax more quickly, allowing the therapist to provide a deeper therapeutic massage, and reducing recovery time. Massage targets trigger points, fascia, tight muscles and postural issues caused by repetitive motion, sedentary lifestyle and emotional and physical injuries.
Muscle Injuries and Back Pain
Deep Tissue Massage therapy addresses painful trouble spots by focusing pressure strokes on the deep tissue layers of muscles and tendons. This therapeutic massage relieves chronic tension patterns and facilitates faster healing from muscle injuries such as back sprains. BEMER vascular therapy enhances this further, bringing blood flow to areas previously constricted.
Reducing Depression and Anxiety
Massage and BEMER vascular therapy can be extremely relaxing, energizing and therapeutic, decreasing the levels of cortisol (the body’s natural stress hormone) and increasing oxygen, serotonin and dopamine levels (neuro-chemicals that control feelings of happiness and well-being). Oxygen is required by all cells to create energy.
