Finding a perfect match can be hard, but sometimes all you need is an adjustment, which is why I decided to move my office to a chiropractor’s office! (Get it…adjustment…chiropractor, ah you’ll laugh later.) Making this move seemed like an ideal situation that would provide my clients with even more accessibility to relief from body aches and pains.
During the massage, the therapist goes from insertion to origin. What this means is that the muscles are being massaged from the outside in, stopping at the origin which is the skeletal structure underneath the muscle. As a massage therapist, I am only trained to get right to that origin point, and that’s it. Here’s where the new move comes to my client’s advantage!
Chiropractors work with the skeletal structure, past the point of origin for a massage therapist. After the massageconstructed, a client could needfor more intense therapy. At this point, the chiropractor can step in and adjust the client’s skeletal system into more comfortable condition.
Think of it as a one-stop-shop for your body’s everyday aches and pains. Keeping up with routine massage therapy as well as a chiropractic visit can result in many health benefits alongside relaxation of the muscles and bones.
