Our friendly Massage Therapists are licensed and trained in the advanced deep tissue techniques that release the inner tensions often related to daily stress, rehabilitation and the healing processes that are enhanced with the additional blood flow initiated and lactic acid release achieved through regular massage.
Massage (as defined by Wikipedia.org) is the manipulation of superficial layers of muscle and connective tissue to enhance the function and promote relaxation and well-being. The word comes from the French massage
friction of kneading, or from Arabic massa meaning
to touch, feel or handle or from Latin massa meaning
mass, dough. In distinction the ancient Greek word for massage was anatripsis, and the Latin was frictio.
Working with massage and muscle therapy allows going deep into the muscle tissue to break down the lactic acid which builds up in our muscles, often causing discomfort and pain.
Massage helps to lower stress, increases circulation, promote tissue regeneration, inhance immunity through lymph flow, alleviate back pain, and much more including help relieve the discomfort during prenancy.
Massage therapy is now accepted as a part of treatment for personal injury cases, which makes working with a chiropractor a great benefit for the patient.
Keeping the body in balance means living a better quality of life, which both chiropractic and massage therapy encourage.
When asked what he attributed to his youthful vibrancy, the late great comedian Bob Hope said,
among other factors…I have a daily massage!
Dr. Reilly (of Cayce / Reilly School of Massotherapy in Virginia Beach.) was Bob Hope's massage therapist. It is said that Bob Hope got a massage daily and lived to be over a 100 years old. Perhaps, we can’t all have a daily massage like Bob Hope did. However, biweekly or monthly massages have been known to offer many benefits for improved wellness.
