Massage therapy is one of the oldest and most common forms of healing arts. Chinese records document its use dating back as far as 3,000 years ago and even Hippocrates recommended the use of massage for joint and circulatory problems. It has stood the test of time and continues to be a valuable treatment option in managing your pain or recovering from injury.
As we know, everything in our body is connected, and a distinct benefit of massage therapy is allowing yourself to slow down and treat your body as a “whole unit”. We often have tightness in areas that we aren’t even aware of and this may be a cause or effect of dysfunction elsewhere in the body. When you receive a full-body massage, your therapist understands the entire body system and can help release muscles that may be affecting an area of discomfort further down the chain.
At Vernon Physical Therapy and Wellness, we strive to differentiate ourselves from other massage providers. By listening to our clients' needs, we are able to provide individualized care that is rare to find at massage chains. Massage at VPT & Wellness is conducted by highly trained therapists that focus on manipulation of soft tissue and postural assessment, which is based on your overall posture and how you carry yourself. This type of bodywork focuses on connective tissue (also known as fascia) that interconnects with all systems of the body, which provides a deeper relaxation and ultimately, relief from pain. This type of massage is wonderful for all people, especially those who may be suffering from emotional stress, poor posture and trauma of the body, including chronic pain and dysfunction.
Massage is not just an hour of relaxation and self care but it is also a tool to help you find more awareness with your body and help you take care of you as you seek to improve your health.
