Massage Therapy Services at San Pedro Chiropractic And Posture

Here at San Pedro Chiropractic And Posture, our main goal is to provide you with quality massage therapy to reduce your physical aches. Massage therapy can reduce muscle spasm, break up superficial adhesions, increase circulation, and produce relaxation.

We have different types of massages you can choose from or can be recommended by our specialists, this includes:

  • Myofascial Release
  • Swedish Massage
  • Sports Massage
  • Deep Tissue Massage

Myofascial Release

This type of massage therapy relieves muscle tightness and shortness. We recommend this type of therapy for patients who are losing flexibility because of an injury, back pain, hip pain, shoulder pain, or practically any pain in an area with soft tissues or muscles.

Myofascial release can also treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, and possibly even migraine headaches.

If you’re experiencing tightness in your tissues that restricts you from moving, or a sense of pressure on your muscles or joints, we may recommend you for our myofascial release therapy. Our goal is to let you move freely and walk out of our clinic without pain.

Swedish Massage

One of the most well-known types of massage, the Swedish massage is best for those who haven’t had a massage before. It is a combination of many different techniques which will allow the soft tissues and muscles in your body to relax.

The goal of the Swedish massage is to assist in restoring balance and health in your body. The result? Relaxed muscles, reduced pain and tension, and may also help heal injuries. If you’re a busy person who just wants to relax, this is the massage you should try.

Benefits of the Swedish massage includes:

  • Improved lymph system function. The lymph system is responsible for moving nutrient-rich fluids around your body through voluntary movements from your muscles.
  • Improved sleep
  • Reduce muscle strains and spasms.
  • Reduce pain from debilitating joint disorders
  • Reduce stress and tension
  • Increased tissue elasticity and flexibility

Sports Massage

Our sports massage therapy techniques are specific to your sport. We focus on the particular parts or areas of your body that are overused from repetitive and aggressive training. Sports massage isn’t just for athletes, it may also be for typical weekend joggers.

This type of massage will help you have a balanced training regimen. It can help you have enhanced pre-event or competition preparation and even reduce recovery time after the event.

Some athletes have found that specialized massage such as sports massage can promote flexibility, improve endurance, reduce fatigue, aid in preventing injuries, and prepare the body for excellent performance.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage involves slow strokes with firm pressure to reach the deep layers of your muscles and the connective tissues that surround your muscles called fascia. It’s widely taken by patients with chronic pains, stiff neck, stiff upper back, lower back pain, and tight muscles.

Some strokes of deep tissue massage may feel similar to the Swedish massage, but it isn’t the same as a regular massage with pressure. Deep tissue massage breaks up scar tissues and breaks down muscle adhesions that can cause pain, limited motion, and even inflammation.

This type of massage often focuses on a specific problem like:

  • Limited mobility
  • Recovery from injuries
  • Strain injuries
  • Lower back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Posture problems
  • Sciatica
  • Fibromyalgia
