Massage Therapy Team Supports Whole Body Health
At Reimer Wellness Center, we are pleased to offer our patients the very best in therapeutic massage thanks to our talented team of three massage therapists. Numerous research studies underscore the benefits of regular massage therapy and holistic healing. After just one treatment session with our massage therapists, it’s easy to feel why. Therapeutic massage is important for pain management, injury rehabilitation and stress relief. Our massage therapists work closely with Dr. Reimer to create holistic healing programs for each patient’s specific wellness needs.
Massage Therapists Integrate Chiropractic Care with Holistic Healing for Enhanced Well-Being
During a treatment session with our massage therapist, he or she will vary the pressure and strokes to meet your specific wellness needs. For example, if you are experiencing stress, anxiety or exhaustion, a deep tissue from our massage therapists will help release tension in the body, enhance the mind-body connection, calm the central nervous system, and stimulate the release of endorphins, the body’s “feel-good” chemical.
Patients with chronic pain or tension may benefit from deep tissue massage techniques. Our massage therapists will work closely with our chiropractor to identify locations of muscular tension within the fascia, the body’s connective tissues. Deep, slow and sustained pressure helps to release this tension and correct dysfunctional movement patterns. By kneading the muscle tissue, our massage therapist will help bring natural fluidity and movement back to the body.
If you have recently sustained a sports injury or are training for an upcoming competitive athletic event such as a marathon, treatment session with our massage therapist can make a significant difference for overall athletic performance and recovery. When we exercise, tiny tears occur to the muscle fiber. Following exercise, these tears are repaired, building stronger muscles. Overtraining, however, hinders the body’s ability to repair muscle damage, leading to constant soreness and increased risk for injury.
Massaging sore and stiff muscles releases lactic acid and other toxins that can become trapped within the muscles and block the body’s ability to heal. Regular holistic healing treatments with our massage therapist will help keep the joints lubricated, improve flexibility, and enhance performance
In addition to the specific benefits of stress relief, pain management and sports injury rehabilitation, the simple act of massaging sore muscle tissue causes important physiological changes in the body.
Benefits of regular massage treatments include: calming the central nervous system; strengthening the immune system; removing toxins from the body; improving blood and lymph circulation; increasing the flow of oxygen and nutrients in the body; improving posture; increasing flexibility and range of motion; and improving overall health. After a treatment with our massage therapists, patients report feeling calm and centered. They sleep better at night, have more energy during the day, and are better able to focus on daily tasks.
Our three massage therapists have substantial experience integrating massage therapy with chiropractic care for enhanced holistic healing and whole body health. To learn more about the benefits of massage therapy, please contact Dr. Reimer at (650) 949-3232.
