What is massage therapy?

Massage therapy is the precise manual manipulation of muscles, ligaments and tendons to ensure their best function. Performed for simple relaxation, as an addition to chiropractic care, or prescribed by a physician to complement traditional medical treatments, massage therapy in Lake Wales maintains and restores function to the neck, upper and lower back, buttocks and upper and lower extremities.

The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health says that massage therapy works extremely well to relieve pain and other problems associated with ongoing health problems. For instance, the NCCIH states that many people with ongoing mental health issues find massage lessens their symptoms of depression.

Other benefits of massage may include:

  • Stress and anxiety reduction
  • Increased mobility and joint range of motion after injury
  • Reduced healing times after surgery or injury
  • Pain management for the neck, lumbar region of the spine and sciatic nerve dysfunction
  • Increased flow of oxygen and nutrients to sore or poorly functioning areas of the body
  • Decrease of inflammation from arthritis, fibromyalgia and other autoimmune disorders
  • Improvement of posture
  • Better lubrication of joints

Dr. Faro also believes that massage therapy makes his chiropractic treatments easier to accomplish, work better and last longer, helping the body participate in healing itself and in staying healthy.
