Massage Therapy Services at San Pedro Chiropractic Clinic
Here at San Pedro Chiropractic And Posture, our goal is to provide you with quality massage therapy to reduce your physical aches, pains, injuries, and to reduce your stress. Massage therapy works by loosening up your muscles, breaking up tight tissues or knots called trigger points, increasing circulation, and helping you relax so your body can heal properly.
We offer different types of massages that we can fit to your individual needs, including:
- Myofascial Release
- Swedish Massage
- Sports Massage
- Deep Tissue Massage
This type of massage therapy relieves muscle tightness and shortened muscles (we call these “hypertonic” muscles). We recommend this type of therapy for patients who may have lost flexibility or dealing with some type of pain or discomfort.
If you’re experiencing tightness in your tissues that restricts you from moving, or a sense of pressure on your muscles or joints, then myofascial release therapy can likely help you.
One of the most well-known types of massage, the Swedish massage is best for those who haven’t had a massage before. It tends to be more gentle, with soft, long, kneading strokes along your tight muscles, and can achieve fantastic results on tight and sore muscles and joints.
Sports Massage is a great choice for athletes or those who work out or exercise regularly. Maybe you are a runner, take exercise classes, workout in a gym or your home, do yoga, or cycle. While doing these things are generally great for our health, sometimes we start to notice aches, pains, or imbalances as a result. This is where a sports massage can help you achieve a more balanced training regimen where you can help restore your muscles or joints after those tough workouts. Sports massage can also help prevent future injuries in the gym, as well as reduce overall muscle fatigue.
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 utilized by patients with neck pain, back pain, muscle tightness, or those who may have suffered an injury.
