Welcome back! Here at Elk Ridge Chiropractic & Wellness Center, we’re concluding our three-week series on therapeutic massage with a look at a few modalities (or massage types) that you may or may not be familiar with: Swedish Massage, Shiatzu Massage, & Thai Massage.
In the last issue of Cascade Business News, we identified the key components of a therapeutic massage, plus we listed some of the modalities (or variations) one might see when visiting a massage therapist. We briefly highlighted some of the well-known modalities such as deep tissue, fire cupping, pin and stretch, scraping and myofascial release, with the promise of diving in further this week on what those modalities entail. We’ll also provide you with the inside scoop on which one might be the right fit for you and whatever tweaked, bent, twisted, or tight somethin’ somethin’ you happen to be nursing at the moment.
Today, we’re going to go over the primary differences between therapeutic massages and spa massages and how, given the scenario, one might be the better fit for you. And we’re not just talking about in the moment, but also moving forward in a life that, let’s face it, isn’t getting any less stressful anytime soon.
Between the ages-old standard manual adjustment (also called diversified chiropractic) and the high-tech Activator method, you’re probably wondering which one’s the perfect fit for you when visiting your chiropractor. Perhaps in your mind, the word ‘diversified’ seems a little too abstract when all you want is your shoulder looked at. Meanwhile ‘activator’ sounds like something from the Terminator, which, if we’re being honest, sounds a wee too painful to be desired. One’s too vague, the other, too abrupt. So let’s dive deeper, shall we? Let’s take a closer look at the definitions, moreover the methods, behind these obscure-sounding words and get down to the facts about what really goes on at the chiropractor’s office. On top of that, let’s figure out which method is right for you.
When it comes to understanding the costs of your insurance, we understand that there’s a lot you need to know. From learning what’s covered and what’s not, to how much you have to pay and what number you need to call when you have questions, sometimes it can feel like it’s just you against the world. That's why today, we're going over the basics.
