There are several different kinds of massage therapy, depending on your individual needs:
-If you're imagining massage therapy to be based on western ideas of anatomy and physiology, beginning with broad general strokes and progressing to more focused attention to problem areas, you're probably thinking of Swedish massage therapy. Swedish massage therapy is generally meant to provide full rest and relaxation, as well as relief from minor aches and pains. It's also great if you're recovering from an injury.
-You can seek out aromatherapy massage or a massage using hot stones if you're looking for a Swedish massage with added luxury or relief.
-If you're pregnant, seek out a specialist in prenatal massage. A prenatal massage will take your condition into account and provide alternative positions in order for you to relax safely and comfortably.
-A deep tissue massage is designed to help those who suffer from chronic pain or limited mobility. If you suffer from neck or back pain, or sciatica, this type of thorough massage may be right for you.
When should you visit a massage therapist versus a chiropractor? That depends on what type of pain you are dealing with. Unlike chiropractic, which deals with hard tissue, such as your spine and joints, massage therapy deals solely with muscular problems. For many patients, this is all that is needed to relieve pain. However, chiropractic is often more intensive, and can involve supplemental treatments or even some massage! If you are experiencing chronic pain and believe you need treatment, it's best to consult your doctor or one of our professionals to determine whether massage therapy is the best fit for you.
For professional care, make an appointment with a well-known and trusted massage therapist. If you're looking for the right choice in the Manchester, NH area, look no further than Chiropractic Associates of Bedford.

We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
