Massage Therapy in Boulder
About Massage Therapy
Massage therapy plays an integral part of maintaining healthy function in your body. The body is a neurological-muscular-skeletal system. To achieve the best possible result it is important to address neurological awareness and the soft tissue function in addition to skeletal alignment in your treatment plan at Mountainview Chiropractic Center.
Massage is for the body. Massage is for the nervous system. Massage is for integrating your whole being. Our bodies and our cells store the memory of all our experiences. In this modern world, many times our incoming experiences come so fast and in such quick succession that we cannot fully process them. This is what causes stress in the body. Whether the stress is sudden, as with a car accident, or long term as with emotional stress or repetitive use injury from doing the same activity day in and day out, the result is the same; soft tissue contractions and adhesions which lose their ability to let go. The nervous system may also respond similarly, going into overload and losing awareness of various parts of the body in distress.
Most often our stress, our unresolved experience, is held in the soft tissue (muscles and fascia) and the nervous system. Manual therapy, or massage therapy is one of the best ways to help release these held tensions in the body, mind, and nervous system. Massage therapy relates to chiropractic care since it is the muscles which when stressed, amnesic, and tight, will inhibit the proper function and balance of the skeletal system.
Our four massage therapists have a vast amount of experience between them. David Fairman, Jules Pellerin, and Nori Shaeffer offer the highest caliber of healing touch available in the field. Whether you come in conjunction with your Chiropractic treatment, or specifically for the restorative and corrective benefits of therapeutic massage, you will walk away happy and much more at ease in your body and in your life. We look forward to meeting you. We look forward to serving you.
