Massage Versus Muscle Tension

Massage fights muscle tension

As an office of chiropractic, we recognize that muscle tension is taking a heavy toll on the average American. Our lifestyles breed muscle tension- the way we sit, the way we work, even the way we relax seems to set us up for chronically tight muscles. Chiropractors also acknowledge that muscle tension is one of the main causes of subluxation; because a tight muscle actively pulls the body out of alignment, subluxation of spinal joints is a natural outcome. So how do we stop muscle tension in its tracks? With massage, of course. 

Don’t underestimate the healing power of massage

The word massage conjures the smell of essential oils and feelings of happiness. And while it is a powerful tool for influencing relaxation, the benefits of massage hardly stop there; at Espinosa Family Chiropractic, we use massage to mitigate muscle tension and help you get rid of pain. Because hands-on massage is able to penetrate deep through layers of tissue to break up tension at the source. Furthermore, the body responds to this newfound freedom of movement by boosting circulation to the injurious region, bringing much needed oxygen and healing nutrients.
