Here at Advanced Healing & Pain Relief Center, LLC in Union, New Jersey, we frequently see patients who are struggling with chronic back pain, neck pain and headaches. Many of our patients are frustrated with traditional medical care, which relies on prescription painkillers to ‘cover up’ pain, rather than actually treating and correcting the underlying cause. Our talented staff uses a combination of treatments, including alignment, physiotherapy and non-surgical spinal decompression therapy, to help manage pain. Massage therapy is also an important complement to these treatments, and one our chiropractors recommends for lasting pain relief.

Massage Therapy in Union Helps Pain Patients Take Back Their Lives

Massage therapy is a natural, conservative treatment that relieves musculoskeletal pain while promoting internal healing. Massage treatments are an important complement to chiropractic care. During chiropractic treatments, our chiropractor may use a series of adjustments and decompression treatments to restore proper alignment to the body. Massage therapy complements this care by relaxing the muscles and promoting healing, helping oxygen-rich blood to enter the muscle tissue.

During a massage treatment, our massage therapist uses a calm and gentle touch to relax the body and mind. Our zen-like atmosphere promotes a state of peace and tranquility, and the body naturally releases pent-up tension trapped in the muscles. Important physiological changes also occur. Your heart rate and breathing rate will decrease, as will blood pressure levels and the presence of the stress hormone cortisol in your blood stream. Your well being will also be enhanced thanks to increased levels of endorphins, nature’s painkillers and mood elevator. As our massage therapist kneads your muscles, fresh, oxygenated blood will enter, flushing out toxins and lactic acid, a waste product that blocks healing.

In myofascial release, for example, gentle pressure is applied to relax and stretch muscles and connective tissues. Trigger point massage applies pressure to specific trigger points in the body and alleviates muscle pain and spasms. If you are athletic or recovering from sports injury, a deep-tissue sports massage can speed healing, while reducing the risk of future injury. Our massage therapist works closely with our chiropractor to create a treatment plan that is personalized for your healing needs.

Pain patients routinely choose us because of our unique approach to pain management and whole body wellness. Each treatment is tailored to the specific needs of our patient.
