I am super happy to announce that I will be giving massage at Clínica QO in Alicante. Starting on the 8th of January, 2019, I will be there every Tuesday morning. Massage is a great adjunct to the chiropractic and osteopathic care that Clínica QO already offers in the centre of beautiful Alicante.
Massage is soft tissue work, while the other two techniques are more structural. Massage works on the idea that relaxation in and of itself is of therapeutic benefit. The idea that it is physiological relaxation that makes a patient feel better goes against the more mechanistic view of manual therapy. The core belief is that by relaxing a person, the innate healing powers of the body are rallied.
Let us not forget that many biochemical and physiological processes are suppressed when the body is in “active” or “daytime” mode. I won’t bore you with the details, but it has to do with the Central Nervous System and its various branches. Immune function, lymphatic flow, cellular repair and rebuilding and bone growth are only some of the processes that work better when we are relaxed.
I like this quote:
“Rather than remodeling or stretching injured fascia…massage…trigger(s) neurochemical and nervous system shifts that produce the observed health benefits.” (https://medium.com/s/the-nuance/the-bottom-line-on-fascial-treatments-19f68a5892b4)
