Massage therapy is the gentle manipulation of your body’s soft tissues, which includes muscle, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, and skin. We use different amounts of pressure and movement to achieve the desired outcome—typically, relaxation and rejuvenation of the body’s soft tissue—and improve the body’s function.
According to research, the feeling of relaxation after a massage can help reduce stress and anxiety, thereby boosting your body’s natural healing resources. Your body has two nervous systems: the sympathetic, which causes your “fight or flight” response in high-stress situations, and the parasympathetic, which takes care of routine operations and leads to relaxation. It is believed that massages increase your parasympathetic response, lessening anxiety and improving function overall.
At Coast Spine Center, our healthcare experts will provide you with different massage options depending on what unique needs and conditions you’re experiencing. Research shows that massage therapy can help to reduce stress and tension, increase relaxation, and decrease pain and muscle tension. Massage can also improve your immune function. Depending on your needs, our massage offerings may include Swedish massage, deep tissue, sports massage, trigger point massage, myofascial release, lymphatic drainage, and pregnancy/prenatal massage.
