Massage therapy (MM 16321) – Our experience in our Destin office is that massage therapy is an excellent adjunctive therapy to chiropractic care. Whether you are a Destin resident or a visitor to the area, the combination of chiropractic care and massage therapy can enhance your health and quickly break the pain cycle.
The pain cycle starts when injury, chronic poor posture or emotional stress causes pain. The body moves differently, causing muscles and other soft tissues to adapt. Massage helps break the cycle by physically stretching and relaxing spasm (muscles shortened from injury or long term inactivity) and trigger points (the swollen, tender areas that may refer pain to other parts of the body).
Our Florida licensed massage therapists are trained in deep tissue massage therapy to facilitate your chiropractic adjustment. Our experience has shown that the combination of massage therapy and chiropractic can be very beneficial in achieving the results that you desire.
This style utilizes long, flowing strokes, often but not necessarily in the direction of the heart. Swedish massage is designed to increase circulation and blood flow. There are six basic strokes: effleurage, pettrisage, friction, tapotement, compression and vibration. Oil, cream, or lotion is applied on the skin to reduce friction and allow smooth strokes.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue techniques are generally designed for more focused massage work. Working a specific joint, muscle or muscle group, the practitioner can access deeper layers of the soft tissue. Each person experiences pressure differently. Starting superficially and easing into the depth of the muscle slowly often allows more movement. If the pressure is applied too deeply or too quickly, the muscle may tighten to protect that area.
Trigger Point Therapy
A trigger point is an area of a muscle that refers pain sensations to other parts of the body. Trigger Point Therapy applies pressure to these points leading to immediate release of tension and improved muscular functioning. Sometimes this work is incorporated into other styles of massage therapy such as neuromuscular therapy (NMT).
Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is used for pain relief and specific problems. Structural and postural imbalances are identified through an initial postural assessment. These are then addressed through systematic and site specific massage. NMT reduces pain, tension, postural imbalance, and lengthens and strengthens tissues.
