Massage therapy is now accepted as a component of a comprehensive treatment and rehabilitation program. Dr. Stuart may recommend the use of massage to provide relief for stress, pain, stiffness, high blood pressure and sports injuries. It has also proven helpful in boosting immunity and may provide comfort for those facing painful chronic conditions.
If the doctor recommends massage as part of your treatment regimen, a variety of techniques can be used to provide relief. These could include kneading movements, long strokes, circular rubbing, tapping or gentle pressure. The goal is to invigorate muscle tissue and stimulate the flow of oxygen-rich blood as an aid to healing. Massage is also used to clear the body of toxins and increase endorphin levels, which adds to overall health. Patients always report feeling less pain and stress after receiving one of our healing massages.
