Healing And Relief To A Misaligned Body
Massage has been recognized for centuries as a natural and holistic way to bring healing and relief to a troubled or misaligned body. By massaging the muscles, fascia, connective tissue, and joints a therapy can restore blood flow to affected areas and reduce pain as well as bring a sense of deep relaxation and restoration. Seeing a licensed professional for a session of massage therapy in our McKinney office can be a great way to find relief from muscular or joint and ligament issues and conditions.
At Freedom Health Centers we recommend massage in combination with your chiropractic care. While chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the spine and its impact on the nervous system, massage focuses on the 650 muscles of the body. Both disciplines work together to help keep the body in proper alignment, balance and function.
What Are the Benefits of Massage Therapy?
There are many different kinds of massage. They all involve systematically working the muscles and other soft tissues of the body to optimize the functioning of the various bodily systems. Massage can enhance your vitality and sense of well-being. Massage has been shown to:
Reduce the development of muscular patterning
Improve posture and re-balances your body/mind
Relieve pain in your muscles and joints
Ease constipation, gas and heartburn
Promote general relaxation
Stimulate intestinal movement
Eliminate excess fluid retention
Retraining your spine
Long-standing spinal problems are accompanied by ingrained muscle patterns. Muscle spasms and scar tissue are often involved. By augmenting your chiropractic care with massage therapy, these muscle and soft tissue problems can be addressed. This can help speed your recovery and enhance the retraining of your spine.

Where Will My Massage Take Place?
Your massage will take place in a quiet, warm comfortable room. Soft lighting may be used to create a relaxing atmosphere. You’ll lie on a soft, comfortable table. Music may be played softly in the background to aid in the relaxation process of your mind and nervous system.
What Should I Wear to the Massage Appointment?
Comfortable clothing is recommended, however therapeutic massage is typically performed with the client unclothed. You will be appropriately draped at all times. Most people undress completely, while some leave some clothing on such as underwear. You decide what level of comfort is right for you. Your privacy is respected at all times.
What Parts of My Body Will Be Massaged?
You and the therapist will discuss the desired outcome. A typical full body massage session will include work on your back, arms, legs, head, neck and shoulders. You will not be touched on or near your genitals or breasts.
Will a Lubricant Be Used?
A light oil or lotion will be used to reduce excessive friction to the skin and allow smoother, deeper strokes. The lubricants used also help to hydrate the skin. If you are allergic to certain oils or scents, just tell the therapist.
What Will The Massage Feel Like?
It depends on the techniques used. Your massage session may start with broad flowing strokes to begin the relaxation process. Pressure will be gradually increased to relax specific areas and release tight muscle bands. Deep tissue massage or trigger point therapies will require deeper pressure and more intensive techniques. It’s important that the pressure always be within your comfort level. Should you wish to receive less or more pressure at anytime, tell your therapist.
Will I Be Sore as a Result of the Massage?
Occasionally, some people may be sore/tender in places the next day, depending on the type of massage and degree of pressure they received. It’s important to communicate with your therapist if the pressure is uncomfortable at any time. Drinking additional fluids following your massage may reduce these symptoms. These symptoms will usually subside by the following day.
