Massage therapy is a hands-on manipulation of the soft tissue and joints of the body.
The soft tissues include muscle, skin, tendons and associated fascia, ligaments, and joint capsules.
The manipulation can physically stretch muscles, ligaments, tendons, and fascia, encourage the circulation through the tissue, inhibit muscular spasms, and be either sedating or stimulating to the nervous system.
This affects all the systems of the body - in particular, the muscular, circulatory, lymphatic (immune) and nervous systems.
Many of today's health problems can benefit from massage therapy because the manipulation of soft tissues affects so many of our bodily systems--muscular, nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic (immune).
Massage therapy's aims are to restore physical function, alleviate pain, relax tight and tense muscles, improve circulation and recovery time, reduce stress, and increase the sense of well-being.
Prolonged periods of stress can subconsciously aggravate, or even cause, such problems as heart disease, gastrointestinal disorders, memory loss and decreased immune function.
Massage therapy is one of the best antidotes for stress. It boosts the body's immune system, which can become compromised from extended periods of stress. Tension can build up in the muscles, causing a decrease in circulation and nutrient delivery to tissues.
Manipulation of the soft tissue decreases muscular tension, increases the removal of metabolic waste, and promotes nutrient delivery to healing tissue.
With a therapeutic massage, stress can be significantly reduced. This, in turn, will increase energy, improve your outlook on life, and in the process boost your immune system function.
Thank you, Dr. Leslie Holcombe and staff members for the great patient experience. I am so glad that I went to Jefferson Spine & Injury Center and I highly recommend this excellent place.
It was really easy to schedule appts and I never had to wait. Parking is easy, location is great, the care they provide during and after is phenomenal. Look no further. I'm glad I found this place!!
I have NEVER allowed anyone to crack anything on me, i felt complete trust and comfort as she adjusted my neck for mobility. She sent me home with after care products and instructions i had not heard of at the previous failed chiro practice. I am so glad i went to see her. I am so excited about my future treatment and would highly recommend anyone involved in an accident to TRY HER FIRST!
I can already see how life changing she can be + excited to see what she can do to make me feel better again with my back! I got into an auto accident and never had anyone treat me the way she has been. Can’t wait for the results! 10/10 recommendation!!!!
