At Back to Health Chiropractic and Massage in Vancouver, we offer both chiropractic and massage due to their synergistic benefits. Here’s five ways massage helps your health...

5 Benefits of Massage

  1. Muscle Health - Tight muscles restrict blood flow and range of motion, which can cascade into other health issues, like muscle cramps. Tightness also leads to knots. Massage helps protect you from all that while providing pain relief. 
  2. Pain Reduction - Whether chronic pain, an injury or a health condition, massage therapy works out related tension so your body can relax and heal.
  3. Stress Relief - Stress creates full-body tension, often growing acute in specific areas, like the back and neck. One way to lower stress levels is to encourage your body to release relaxation hormones, like oxytocin, and lower cortisol levels, two positive side effects of massage.
  4. Joint Health - All the time spent sitting in front of a computer is unhealthy for the spine and your joints, causing tightness and loss of flexibility among other issues. Massage can alleviate the pain and stiffness of the desk job life and encourage your joints to stay well lubricated.
  5. Musculoskeletal Conditions - Deep tissue massage is well backed by research to provide pain relief and promote recovery. Many of our patients find relief from chronic conditions, like sciatica, back pain, fibromyalgia, and so much more.
