Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy helps the body in a number of ways, including muscle relaxation, circulatory improvement, and the body’s relaxation response. 

Massage can relax muscle tissue, which may lead to

  • Decreased nerve compression
  • Increased joint space
  • Relief of pain
  • Increased range of motion
    • Improved muscle tone
    • Improved posture
    • Improved athletic performance
    • Decreased risk of injury

    massageMassage therapy may also improve circulation. Circulation is responsible for enhancing the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to muscle cells. It also helps to remove waste products. Therefore, the improved circulatory effects of massage may also have value in the treatment of some inflammatory conditions like arthritis.

    Massage therapy is also beneficial for relaxation. Massage induces the relaxation response, resulting in:

    • lowering the heart rate
    • lowering the respiratory rate
    • lowering blood pressure
    • boosting the immune system
    • decreasing the physical effects of stress

    Sports massage

    Sports massage recharges an athlete’s worn out muscles and improves athletic performance.

    Utilizing a variety of techniques, the Van Ness Chiropractic massage therapists customize treatment sessions to match your athletic training demands. Should you have an event within 48 hours of your scheduled session, your therapist may use some circulatory massage and passive joint mobilization to make sure you have the range of motion you will need to avoid injury at your event. During your slower training times, your therapist may utilize more rehabilitative techniques to bring your body back from being worn down after more intense training periods.

    Myofascial release

    Myofascial release is a manual massage technique that stretches the fascia and releases the bonds between fascia, muscles, and bones. When the fascia is manipulated, the connective tissue fibers of a person’s body are reorganized into a more flexible and functional fashion.

    “Fascia” is a band or sheet of connective material. It is located between the skin and the underlying structure of muscle and bone and covers and connects the muscles, organs, and skeletal structures in the body. Muscle and fascia together form the myofascial system.

    Injuries, stress, inflammation, trauma, and poor posture can cause restriction to fascia, and, since fascia is interconnected, restriction in one place leads to tightness and restriction in others.

    The goal with myofascial release is to eliminate pain while increasing the range of motion and balancing ability of the body. By releasing fascial restriction, connective tissue is restored to health.

    I can't say enough about Dr. Jason Van Ness and the team at Van Ness Chiropractic! When people ask if I know a good Chiropractor in town, without hesitation, I recommend Van Ness Chiropractic. Not only for "fixing" what's broken, but for wellness maintenance, too. I see people in the office ranging from babies to elderly, athletes of all kinds, people who travel far and wide and make time, when in town, to visit Dr. Van Ness. Van Ness Chiropractic offers a vainly of services and is not limited to Chiropractic care. Besides my regular Chiropractic visits, I have taken advantage of Acupuncture and Massage Therapy. My quality of life is enriched by regular visits to Dr. Jason Van Ness and his team!Stop by and meet the team...you'll be thankful you did.

    Dr.Van Ness has built himself a great place for health. I’ve been seeing him since he did a residency with Dr.Cox, late 1990s. As a legacy patient he has always kept me straight. He even came in on a weekend to assist my wife with an issue. His place isn’t just straightening crooked people. He treats young athletes to the “ole guys” equally. His center of health has a variety of therapists to get you the proper care you want.

    I didn’t even know I had mild back problems until I came here. Very thorough and very friendly staff! I love the fact that it’s also a clean and safe place as they wipe surfaces often. Definitely recommend!
