Therapeutic Massage that Gets Results at Buchar Family Chiropractic

While massage is often a solution to stress management and an important part of self-care, it’s also a fundamental method in the treatment for sciatica, frozen shoulder, whiplash, TMJ, chronic pain, migraines, and neck pain. Every day, we proudly welcome patients into our practice who are looking for a natural way to relax and feel better—and massage is a great way to achieve that!

It works in complement to chiropractic, especially in cases where patients are not taking well to adjustments or suffering from acute pain. Massage can help the body prepare to be manipulated in a way that supports better results, and can help improve the effects of your adjustment, extend your results, and support your overall health and wellness.

What to Expect During Your Massage

Our massage approach runs the gamut from light, gentle pressure used in lymphatic drainage to deep, extended strokes to effectively relieve muscle knots, as well as trigger point therapy, myofascial release, and even cupping.

This is not a massage you might get at a health spa. We’re working to get you back to optimal function throughout your body. While it certainly works to help alleviate stress, most of our clients visit on a weekly or bi-weekly basis to keep their bodies progressing. Regular therapy sessions allow your body to work more efficiently in a way that is sustainable for your future.

We will often start small with our patients and work up from there. We understand you have discomfort and may even be in pain. We listen to how the body responds when we start to work on it and look for the small cues that tell us what kind of work the patient’s pain level will allow. Breathing mindfully and practicing patience are important tools when receiving therapeutic massage.

Our massage therapist will educate you as they massage your body. There is open communication as we move across your body. It is an active learning experience for the patient, and there may be discomfort and sometimes pain involved with the level of intensity the therapist uses to get to the root cause of your symptoms.

However, a brief moment of discomfort or pain can lead to a week of relief and is one step closer to achieving the full capacity of your body’s potential.

Preparing for Your Visit

For your appointment, be sure to wear comfortable clothing because you’re not always going to disrobe during our work.

Be sure to hydrate throughout the day ahead of your appointment, as well as afterward. Try to avoid using painkillers like Tylenol or ibuprofen that day so we have a true representation and response from your body.

We offer pre-adjustment massages, as well as massage as a stand-alone service. There are 15, 30, and 50-minute customizable sessions focused on your needs. Whether you choose a single massage session, a regular series, or a simple pre-adjustment 15-minute service, we can meet your needs with expertise and education.

Remember that your massage therapist can’t read your mind. If you are experiencing severe pain or discomfort, please don’t hesitate to let them know. If you need less pressure or feel like you can handle more, communicate that to your therapist right away. We’re there to help you!

The Buchar Family Chiropractic Difference

We embrace patient education and find it a critical component to the success our patients have during and following their massage therapy treatments. We will walk you through the particular areas of focus during each session, explaining what the massage methods will achieve for you. You have the ability to ask any questions you may have.

You will always be treated with respect. During our sessions, if it is necessary to be disrobed, you will be draped professionally the entire time, with the exception of the area being worked on. We adhere to strict boundaries, have utmost empathy for our patients, and champion your healing.

Patience and Consistency Are Keys to Healing

There is always an underlying reason we experience pain or dysfunction throughout our body. Our goal is to determine the source, and then make it better. Whether you’ve had pain for a few days or a lifelong chronic issue, it can create unnecessary stress in your life and cause you to miss out on the quality of life you deserve.

Patience — and consistency — will be your superpowers as you move through your massage therapy sessions.

Although it can take anywhere from a single session to a longer series of sessions to feel better, it really depends on your body, your issues, and the corrective actions you’ve already taken to resolve your symptoms.

Reach Out Today

While most of our patients pay in cash for massage therapy services, some insurances are now beginning to cover therapeutic massage, and we always suggest patients check with their insurance for potential coverage. We also accept FSA and HSA payments.

We want to help you restore your ability to live your best life. Make an appointment with our highly experienced masseuse today!
