Frequently Asked Questions
What is massage therapy?
Massage therapy is a type of treatment that manipulates the muscles and soft tissues to help relieve stiffness, soreness and pain, and to relieve stress and anxiety. It can also help promote greater flexibility and aid in healing after an accident, illness, injury or surgery.
How can massage therapy be used to treat health issues?
Massage therapy is ideal for relieving stress, which has been linked with many health issues including heart disease, stroke, dementia, digestive disorders, chronic depression and more. Massage helps remove toxins that build up in the body by stimulating the lymphatic system, and it also promotes healthy circulation to enable oxygen- and nutrient-rich blood to reach organs and other tissues more readily. Plus of course, massage helps treat pain, stiffness and soreness in the musculoskeletal system by applying gentle, repeated pressure to sore muscles and joints.
Is it OK to have massage after surgery?
In most cases it's not only OK, it can actually be helpful. Some studies have shown massage can actually speed healing and recovery after some types of surgery, and because surgery can be stressful, it can also help relieve tension to promote better overall health. If you've had surgery, our doctors will perform a physical exam before massage and may also consult with your surgeon.
How long will a massage session last?
That depends on your condition, but most sessions are a half hour to an hour in length. Be sure to set aside some time to relax after your massage to enjoy the full effects.
Do I have to take off my clothes?
If you're having a full massage, being undressed can help you get the most benefits, but if you're uncomfortable, you might want to try wearing loose shorts or other loose, lightweight attire. A drape will be used to cover you during your massage.
What Patients Are Saying
"This was my first visit to American Chiropractic. Everyone was very friendly, from the moment I arrived, to making a future appointment, before I left. Dr Weinzimer was kind, and listened about my areas of concern. He explained how the visit would go, then I went to another room where a hot, moist pack was put over my entire back. After that, he adjusted the areas that had been bothering me. I will be going back for more adjustments. Thank you Dr. Weinzimer and staff for a very good experience. "
