Massage is more than just a luxury spa treatment. At our Edmonds chiropractor, it’s a valuable medical procedure that can seriously improve the quality of your life.
One of the problems with our musculature systems, particularly in our backs, is that they’re not great at solving their own problems. When a muscle knots, tightens, or goes weak, the house of cards begins to fall. You may instinctively want to rest these muscles when they cause you pain, but doing so may only be aggravating the problem; indeed, more than about a day of resting your back puts you in danger of muscle entropy that will only put you at greater risk of injuries in the future. So what can you do when it’s too painful to stand and too risky to lay down? You need massage.
And not only is massage good for stretching out muscles and working out painful knots, it’s got many other valuable medical applications as well. It can improve your circulation, flush toxins out of your body, and decrease your blood pressure. Sometimes it can even be effective against such conditions as insomnia and depression.
At Nu Star, you can benefit from deep tissue massage, hot stone massage, or aromatherapy massage. Each one has its own special benefits, so call now to learn more about which one might be right for you!
