We all love getting a massage and know how beneficial it can be if we pair it with other therapeutic treatments such as chiropractic and acupuncture.
For some time now, Sage Health has been offering Chirosage treatments, which meld both chiropractic and massage into one service.
While Chirosage has been growing in popularity with our clients, we understand that this service may still leave some people wondering what it is, and furthermore, why they should consider booking a session. So we thought it might help to explain and outline the benefits of it to give insight to anyone who might be interested in this healthful therapeutic treatment.
If you’re a regular customer of Sage Health, you’re familiar with the common treatments we offer prior to your adjustment — rolling table, heat, percussion, etc. These elements are meant to help you relax and relieve tension. By helping you to relax, your muscles and joints, in turn, become easier to work with thereby enhancing the integrity of your chiropractic adjustment. Now imagine taking that pre-adjustment phase a big step further — this is what you get with a Chirosage.
We start with a massage treatment that is tailored specifically to you. This also gives your chiropractor a chance to literally feel where the particular points of issue are on your body by massaging the surrounding soft tissue and muscles. It allows them to pinpoint these areas and work them out in an effort to relieve excess tension and stress. It also provides them with an enhanced understanding of what needs to happen with your chiropractic adjustment. This only further augments their awareness of your body’s needs and helps them to determine the best course of action to bring your body back into balance. Once the massage portion is complete, your body has become much more malleable — thereby making it so the muscles and joints are ready to release fully and allow your body to align (with ease) during your chiropractic adjustment.
The other benefit of a Chirosage is that it can be considered a time saver since you’re getting both your massage and chiropractic adjustment in one service. At Sage Health, we offer Chirosage treatments in increments of 20, 30, and 60, minute sessions. Often times, patients only have time for one service or the other on any given day. While we’d all love to book an hour-long massage along with an adjustment afterward, this may not be realistic for everyone’s schedule. With Chirosage, you get the best of both worlds in an ideal time-frame that works for you.
