Massage Therapy is a wonderful tool that helps alleviate pain and stress in bodies of all ages and types. It is one of the most effective complimentary treatments used today to restore our body as a whole. Massage Therapy can help alleviate pain due to soft tissue discomfort associated with everyday stress, chronic pain, and muscle overuse. Massage is a natural, non-invasive approach to overall wellness and will help allow the body to naturally heal itself and revive.

Massage Therapy sessions at our office range from a half hour session up to a full 2 hour session. (A half hour appt is not an appropriate amount of time to address the entire body it is more part specific ex: upper body tension therapist will work on back, neck and shoulders.) A session consists of the therapist discussing with the client about his/her areas of tension or concern that they wish to have the therapist focus on during their massage and then a plan is created together from there for each individual client. Every body is different therefore each session is different due to the needs of that particular client. You don’t have to have any specific concerns or conditions to benefit from a massage. Many people receive massage therapy to just simply “get away” from the stresses of life and to relax and restore the body, mind, and spirit.

Lymphatic massage, also known as lymphatic drainage, is a gentle form of massage that stimulates the lymphatic system to improve metabolism, promote the removal of bodily toxins and waste, and encourages a healthy immune system. The massage works by working with the body’s own lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is responsible for immune system regulation and fluid and waste removal. It is what helps rid the body of any toxins that may cause illness. When the lymphatic system slows down or becomes blocked, then fluids begin to build up, causing the whole body to feel tired and heavy, making us susceptible to catching sicknesses. By stimulating the lymph nodes through massage, it helps to clear any blockages and gives the lymphatic system a boost keeping it running healthy and strong. A lymphatic massage session begins with a consultation between the therapist and client to discuss the client’s specific needs and how many sessions will be needed. The actual massage consists of gentle pressured and pumping movements towards the direction of the lymph nodes throughout the body. The procedure uses the deep thumb pressure of shiatsu combined with the relaxing techniques of the Swedish massage. Depending on whether the therapist is focused on only one specific area or is working on the entire body, a session can last anywhere between half an hour to two hours in length.. Since it consists of only soft, rhythmic motion, the technique can be used on even the gentlest of areas including areas of the body that are swollen.  The massage is good for individuals who frequently suffer from illnesses, a faulty immune system, sports injuries, depression and emotional problems, stress, and low energy. It has been shown to have positive effects on the skin, to produce energy, and to help with respiratory problems. The treatment boosts the immune system making it easier to fight of disease and creates general feelings of vitality. It can also help the client deal with different types of pain because it evokes the body’s innate healing mechanisms.The cost is $75, and you must pay in cash because we can not bill your insurance for this.

These two are a terrific pair and go hand ‘n hand wonderfully. KST Chiropractic care helps keep your body in alignment by adjusting the bones of our body and helps correct many conditions and discomforts. Massage therapy helps by softening and manipulating the tissues of the body. Therefore, a massage can help the body hold adjustments longer. If the muscles in your body are hypertonic (tight, tense) then they can fight against the bones of the body by pulling, therefore causing your body to go out of alignment which is the cause of many discomforts and conditions. So by keeping the tissues of your body soft and relaxed you help keep your body healthy and allow your KST chiropractor to adjust you easier.
