Benefits of Massages from Licensed Massage Therapists
Licensed massage therapists help relieve tension, tightness, and pain using hands-on massage techniques. Massages help with the movements of blood and lymph through the body and assist in relaxing the muscles. This helps reduce stress and lengthen the muscles. When used in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments, massage can realign the spine, joints, and release old muscle memory.
What is Muscle Memory and Why is it Relevant?
Muscle memory is when your body learns a sequence of movements. This helps the body learn to hold the muscles in a certain way so that you can do routine activities. This type of learning occurs throughout our lives and starts even before birth (thumb sucking in utero as an example). Our brain remembers how to hold our muscles a certain way in order to do things such as writing, riding a bike, walking, etc. The same thing goes for when you type on a computer. You hold your body a certain way and the body remembers how it feels when you, for example, sit at a desk.
Sometimes our muscles continue to hold these positions if we do these activities long term. We get pain in some muscle groups because maybe they are weak and underutilized or they are strong and stressed. Massage can help to balance these occurrences and reset the muscles so when we move we exercise all of our muscles in a balanced way and get all of our muscles strengthened in tandem, not just certain muscle groups.
Conditions Treated with Massage Therapy
Regular massages, combined with chiropractic work, corrects bad muscle memory and treats other issues too. With a misaligned spine, then because of muscle memory, your muscles conform to the shifts in your spine. This can cause long-term misalignment of the spine, and also contributes to calcium deposits and impingement of spinal nerves. This can lead to pain, decreased range of motion, and muscle fatigue.
Maintaining proper alignment of the spine will help with the functioning of your immune system and vital organs. Furthermore, massage therapy is often used to treat PTSD as well as many other types of problems:
- adhesive capsulitis aka frozen shoulder syndrome
- carpal tunnel syndrome
- plantar fasciitis
- shoulder & knee pain
- upper and lower cross syndrome
