Dr. Jeff Brown and Dr. Scott Harris offer massage therapy to loosen muscle tension, and relieve stress so that your body can function properly. Massage therapy may be performed as a stand-alone treatment or as part of a chiropractic treatment plan. We welcome you to call Foundation Chiropractic today at 801-226-2606 to learn more about massage therapy in Orem, Utah, and to schedule your consultation with our skilled chiropractors.
Massage therapy involves manipulating the muscles through series of pulling and kneading motions. When you repeat a particular motion, or hold a position continuously for any length of time, your muscles tighten, and you can experience pain and discomfort. Massage therapy works to release the tension so that you can feel more comfortable, and your body will function correctly.
Massage therapy produces many benefits, including:
- Stress relief
- Increased flexibility
- Improved range of motion
- Greater relaxation overall as well as in specific muscles
- Lower blood pressure and improved circulation
- Improved healing time following injury
- Relief from tension headaches
- The reduction or elimination pain and inflammation in the body
- A balance in your body’s systems (including digestion and lymphatic drainage)
- A balance in sleep and energy levels
If you are receiving massage therapy, we recommend that you take a few important steps to prepare for your treatment before arriving at our office. First and foremost, keep yourself hydrated. Muscles that are hydrated are much more pliant and easier to manipulate, resulting in a more effective treatment. Please notify our chiropractors of any illnesses or injuries you are currently experiencing, as well as any past surgeries or medical issues. We encourage you to communicate your goals and expectations with us to ensure that we can meet your needs.
