Massage Therapy and Chiropractic
In the past, in Western society, if a person was in pain, surgery or prescription medication was the go-to. However, Eastern cultures, such as China, have long included natural forms of healing such as massage, essential oils, acupuncture, and more.
However, in the 21st-century, natural approaches to good health in Western society are becoming more and more common. Three of those approaches include massage therapy, chiropractic care, and nutrition. Massage therapy and nutrition, when combined with chiropractic care, can contribute significantly to healing.
If you live in High Springs, Florida, or the surrounding area, we are chiropractors here to show you how natural healing techniques are not only good for your body but can be instrumental in bringing you back to good health and keeping you there. We believe in the ancient practices that have proven time and time again to be beneficial to the body.
Let’s explore some of those practices.
What is massage therapy?
Massage is a manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, by rubbing, pressing, and kneading the skin, to promote good health and enhance wellness. It often includes the use of essential oils, and It produces relaxed muscles and improvement in blood flow and circulation. Massage therapy, practiced by a massage therapist, can be achieved in a variety of settings such as spas, hotels, hospitals, fitness centers, and more.
Massage therapy includes a wide variety of techniques, including Swedish massage, Reflexology massage, Deep Tissue massage, Prenatal massage, and more. Instead of taking prescription medication for back pain, for example, massage therapy can be useful for the reduction of pain in the back. It can also help with neck and shoulder pain, carpal tunnel symptoms, stress and anxiety, and much more.

What is nutrition?
Nutrition is food’s relation to our health and growth. A diet of poor nutrition such as fast food, soda, and candy contributes to poor health and growth. On the other hand, a diet of proper nutrition, such as including lots of fruits and vegetables, means vitamins, antioxidants, and other substances contributing to good health and growth.
When we eat foods that include vegetables, fruits, low-fat dairy products, lean meats, fish, poultry and grains, as well as the proper amount of water consumption, we contribute positively to our bodies.
What is chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care is another form of natural healing or alternative medicine that doesn’t involve surgery or drugs. Founded by D.D. Palmer in the 1890s, it has grown into a respected practice for treating and healing the body. Today, there are well over 50,000 chiropractors practicing in North America.
A chiropractor focuses on the muscles, spine, and nervous system. The natural practice is used to treat pain, contribute to good health, relieve anxiety and stress, and improve the quality of life. It’s used to treat back pain, neck pain, headaches, and more.
There are various tools that a chiropractor may use. These include the hands, therapeutic machines, acupuncture, and more. A licensed chiropractor is the kind of professional you should seek for safe and effective chiropractic care. You risk injury if you get chiropractic care from a non-professional.
