Back pain and neck pain from car accidents, whiplash and injuries can profoundly affect your quality of life. You may feel frustrated and overwhelmed at your inability to enjoy basic activities and feel crippled by pain and uncertainty. Here at Thrive Chiropractic, we are committed to helping you find permanent pain relief and regain your health - without the headache of invasive treatments like surgery or heavy medication.
Led by Colorado Springs Chiropractor Dr. Molly Kallenbach, Thrive Chiropractic believes in a whole body philosophy. Rather than cover up your back pain or neck pain with medication, we use non-invasive alternative treatments for wellness, physical therapy techniques, pain management and whole body nutrition. Massage is an important part of this approach, and helps many of our patients to experience immediate relief and long-term changes.
Massage causes important physiological changes in your body. A compassionate, soft touch invites your mind and body to relax. Your breathing rate and heart rate slow, your blood pressure lowers, and the production of stress hormones decreases. This state of relaxation also increases the levels of serotonin in your bloodstream, a chemical that positively affects your feelings and emotions.
The physical act of massaging your muscles improves blood flow and lymph circulation. Over time, lactic acid and other toxins can naturally build up in our muscles. Massage brings fresh, oxygenated blood into your joints and muscles, flushing out these toxins, promoting healing and reducing inflammation. Massage treatments relax your muscle tissue, which reduces painful spasms, contractions and nerve compression that causes back pain and neck pain. While a massage therapist cannot reach all the deep tissues in our body, the simple act of releasing tensions from superficial tissue layers may also affect deep tissue layers. Your entire body is in better alignment and balance. Regular massage treatments, in combination with physical therapy techniques and chiropractic care, can help restore your body's flexibility and natural range of motion.
At our Colorado Springs office, we offer Deep Tissue Massage, Swedish Massage, Ashiatsu Massage and Pregnant Mommies' Massage. The depth, intensity and pressure of each massage treatment range from very gentle to deep tissue, depending on the type of massage and the wellness needs of the patient. Our talented, certified massage therapist, Judith Kawanabe, works therapeutic miracles on our patients and can especially help those who are expecting with our Pregnant Mommies' Massage.
A typical massage treatment lasts between 45 and 90 minutes, depending on your individual needs. Each session targets the muscles, tendons and ligaments in need of healing. While you may experience a mild ache as pressure is applied to your muscles, this sensation is simply your body restoring balance by purging itself of toxins. Following your session, you will feel centered, relaxed and peaceful. You may wish to combine a massage session with a chiropractic care visit or physical therapy techniques.
Colorado Springs patients choose Thrive Chiropractic because of our integrated approach to wellness that helps free patients from a lifetime of chronic back pain, neck pain and headache. Massage therapy, in combination with chiropractic care, physical therapy techniques and balanced nutrition, is an important part of whole body wellness. Whether our patients are suffering pain due to car accidents, whiplash, or injury, our chiropractor, Dr. Molly, and our entire wellness team is committed to helping our patients reclaim their lives.
