Massage Therapy and Physical Therapy Q & A

How and where are massages done?

At Beneficial Health Medical Center, massages are done in a private massage room for the comfort and privacy of patients. The licensed massage therapist, Stephanie Clemons, allows the patient privacy so they can disrobe to whatever degree they're comfortable with prior to the massage. You'll lay comfortably on your stomach or on your side on the massage table, and Ms. Clemons will then do a customized massage to address pain or other issues.

What types of massage are available?

Beneficial Health Medical Center offers a variety of massage techniques, including:

  • Relaxation massage
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Prenatal massage
  • Massage to improve range of motion
  • Hot stone massage
  • Deep-tissue massage
  • Your massage will be customized according to your needs and wishes. For example, if you've been experiencing a great deal of pain you can opt for a therapeutic massage and if you're feeling no pain but want to feel even better or experience tension release you may opt for a relaxation massage. Most massages can also be combined with hot stone techniques for extra pain relief and soothing.

    What are the benefits of massage therapy?

    Massage therapy has a number of health and wellness benefits, including:

  • Pain relief for back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches, and most other types of pain
  • Increased blood circulation
  • Stress and anxiety relief
  • Relaxation of muscle tissue, which can help in decreasing nerve compression
  • Improved range of motion
  • What is physiotherapy?

    Beneficial Health Medical Center offers a variety of physical therapy techniques to help in healing and wellness. These techniques, known collectively as physiotherapy, can include:

  • Ultrasound
  • Interferential electrical muscle stimulation
  • Microamperage neural stimulation
  • Mechanical traction
  • Cryotherapy
  • Moist heat therapy
  • Work hardening rehabilitation program
  • Dr. Knop can perform spinal adjustments that can alleviate imbalances that may be contributing to your headaches. Regular chiropractic adjustments can help you feel better very quickly, and they can also help reduce the frequency and the duration of your headaches. Other healing methods may also be helpful in dealing with headaches, including physical therapy techniques and therapeutic massage.

    How can massage and physiotherapy work with chiropractic care?

    Both massage and physiotherapy are extremely effective additions to your care and wellness plan. Patients dealing with pain and limited range of motion usually want to get the maximum relief as quickly as possible. By adding massage and physiotherapy to the care plan, you can often get relief much more quickly.

    Many patients find massage and physiotherapy to be so beneficial that they schedule regular appointments to help them maintain peak health, even after they're fully healed.
