There are so many benefits of massage for everyone, and, particularly as we age, we need to think about giving our bodies and joints a bit more care than in our younger years. It’s not just about looking after our bodies. We also need to do things to improve our well-being and ensure we are caring for our minds and happiness as well.
Are your job, family or kids getting a little out of hand and slowly taking over your entire life? Are you in desperate need of a break to relax, not think or worry about anything? If you have said yes to any of these questions, massage therapy may be the right answer for you. Our office is conveniently located in Minneapolis, MN and our massage therapists can give you the relaxation you desire.
MASSAGE THERAPY: NATURE’S STRESS RELIEVER
Therapeutic massage can do wonders for your mind and your body. Not only can massage therapy help lower the damaging effects of accumulated stressors in your life, but it can also help make you more focused, boost your energy and improve your overall health and well-being.
Stress Free may be Tax Free too! Massages done after you have had an evaluation with the doctor and deemed therapeutic in nature can be paid for with pre-tax dollars through most Flex (FSA) or Health Savings Accounts (HSA).
DIFFERENT MASSAGE TECHNIQUES OFFERS DIFFERENT RESULTS
No two massage techniques are the same. There are many different massage techniques which utilize different types of movements and pressure for individual results. Whether you’re looking for a nice, relaxing massage to reduce stress, or looking for a massage to help treat ailments, there is a massage technique perfect for you.
Some of the massage techniques we offer at Nokomis Chiropractic and Wellness include:
- Swedish Massage – A light form of massage using long strokes, kneading, broad circular motions, vibration, and tapping focusing on the superficial layers of the muscle.
- Deep Tissue Massage – A slower form of massage that uses more forceful motions to reach the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. This type of massage is normally used with patients to help with muscle damage developed by injuries.
- Sports Massage – Much like Swedish massage, but it is tailored to people who participate in sports activities to help prevent or treat injuries.
- Trigger Point Massage – Focuses on the regions of your body that have tight muscle fibers that can develop in your muscles after injury or exercise.
