If you have been advised to get a massage in Portland for treatment of a particular health issue, you may be wondering what this form of healing is all about and exactly how it can help you. Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions about massage therapy in Portland, courtesy of your friends at Laurelhurst Chiropractic.
Your massage therapist in Portland OR (we have two) can use a variety of massage techniques as you sit or lie on our treatment table. The techniques used may range from Swedish massage, a lighter method for manipulating surface tissues, to firmer forms aimed at mobilizing and healing deeper tissues.
Most sessions (but not all) require the removal of at least some clothing. You can leave your underwear on if you prefer, and your massage therapist in Portland OR can also drape the parts of the body not being worked on.
Most massage sessions leave patients feeling both relaxed and energized. Occasionally you feel some aches if you've been receiving deep tissue therapy. Drinking plenty of water afterward will help flush out toxins released by the massage session.
We frequently administer massage therapy for neck pain relief, back pain relief, headache relief, and relief of acute or chronic soft tissue injuries. We can also treat trigger points of tight tissue that refer pain to various other points on the body.
Massage therapy has been found to lower blood pressure, insulin heart action and cortisol (stress hormone) levels. At the same time, it increases the production of pleasurable chemicals such as serotonin, dopamine and endorphins.
Chronic stiffness from an old injury may be caused by internal scar tissue formation. We can use specialized instruments to pinpoint these areas of scarring and break them up, relieving the stiffness and pain.
Massage therapy stimulates blood flow, rushing vital nutrients and oxygen to the area being treated. This helps tissues heal themselves more quickly and completely.
Massage therapy not only optimizes blood flow; it also stimulates the flow of lymph. This improves your immune system function and helps you ward off illnesses.
We frequently combine chiropractic care and massage therapy in Portland. Massage's ability to relax and loosen muscles can make chiropractic adjustments proceed more effectively, increasing the back pain relief, neck pain relief and other benefits provided by chiropractic care.
