Huntington Beach Chiropractic Announces Massage Therapy Services

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 6, 2011) - Huntington Beach Chiropractic announced that the practice offers massage therapy. This conservative treatment is used for managing back pain, neck pain, sciatica, headaches, migraines and other chronic pain. Massage can also help speed internal healing for patients following a car accident injury or personal injury. The practice often combines massage with other non-invasive pain management techniques, including chiropractic care. This is part of the practice's holistic approach to wellness, which focuses on both helping patients manage pain as well as enhance overall well being.

Chiropractors Dr. Cynthia Cooper and Dr. Jennifer Campagna announced that their practice, Huntington Beach Chiropractic, offers massage treatments for pain management and treating injuries.

"We are proud to be a premier provider of Huntington Beach massage therapy and other non-invasive pain management treatments," said Dr. Cooper. "Many patients don't realize that there are safe and effective alternatives to prescription painkillers. Covering up pain with medication is only a temporary fix, but holistic therapies including massage are a true solution."

According to Dr. Cooper and Dr. Campagna, massage helps ease pain and promotes internal healing. Massage increases blood flow which carries away damaged tissue cells and brings nutrients to repair the tissue. It involves passive stretching and removing of adhesions to increase flexibility.

The physical act of being massaged also helps the body and mind relax. Studies show that massage lowers blood pressure and decreases heart rate, while also lowering the levels of cortisol in the blood stream. In exchange, massage increases the levels of endorphins, the body's feel-good hormone and natural painkiller.

"Massage offers benefits for the entire body," said Dr. Campagna. "Stretching and kneading sore muscles helps to release tension and ease pain. At the same time, massage promotes whole body wellness. Patients leave our treatments feeling calm, relaxed and centered. As a chiropractor, I frequently recommend these treatments to my patients."

Licensed massage therapist Julie Maul provides massage treatments at the wellness center. An avid athlete and personal trainer, Ms. Maul uses her understanding of the human anatomy and therapeutic touch to deliver targeted pain relief.

"Whether a patient is struggling with back pain from a sports injury or a chronic condition like fibromyalgia, massage is a safe and effective treatment for easing pain and enhancing well being," said Ms. Maul. "At the same time, stretching the muscles can help restore flexibility and a full range of movement, especially for patients who struggle with muscle stiffness following an injury."

Ms. Maul works closely with each chiropractor to create treatments plans that complement chiropractic adjustments.

"Everything we do is closely integrated for whole body wellness," said Ms. Maul. "We don't just help relieve your back pain -- we work to enhance your overall well being. Massage naturally complements chiropractic adjustments and corrective exercises. Many of our patients find that a combination of treatments is more effective than chiropractic care alone, and this helps our patients feel better and heal faster."
