Benefits of Massage Therapy
Too many people live physically inferior lives filled with a daily struggle to overcome debilitating aches and pains. While over time many take to seeing this as ‘normal’, we at Proactive Chiropractic & Sports Medicine view it as the kind of life that could use improvement. We aim to help people achieve physical and mental wellbeing through the application of massage therapy and other treatments. Our Hermosa Beach center is just one of the locations where you can enjoy these things.
Massage therapy is a tested and proven method in the removal of daily aches and pains, as well as those resulting from trauma and other causes. The average person is too stressed on a daily basis to heal the way they are supposed to. We simply bring to bear techniques which can get you in a relaxed state, and tell you how to keep the good feeling going for a good while.
More technically though, we work based off of what you tell us about your condition, and the physical examination we require you to initially take. Our specialists focus on how and when your condition first onset, what triggers it, and what techniques work best to mitigate it. They sit you down early on for a talk that covers your medical history, areas of concern, any medications you take, and what to avoid when conducting massages. They then formulate a customized treatment plan as well as schedule to match your convenience, need, and preference. This goes for every patient that walks into our Hermosa Beach center, and it always works to their benefit.
During the massage session, the therapist makes use of finger, palm and elbow pressure to essentially knead your muscles, especially the soft tissue located at various spots on your body. While you work to relax and keep your breathing deep and steady, he or she works the kinks and stresses out of your system. You could be the architect when it comes to the setting – you can choose the temperature the room will be, what music plays in the background, and which techniques are better left out of the massage. If all this seems like too much work, you could simply lay down comfortably and fall asleep, then wake up an hour later feeling refreshed and pain free.
We prefer that our patients participate heavily in their retreatment; this not only helps them feel in control, but also helps out therapists gauge their satisfaction levels.
