Massage Q & A
What are the benefits of massage?
A massage focuses on knots and tension that affect the layers of your muscles to relieve pain and discomfort. When performed by an experienced massage therapist, a massage can:
- Relieve muscle pain
- Alleviate tension
- Increase blood circulation
- Improve flexibility
- Increase range of motion
- Break up scar tissue
The massage therapists at Lynnwood Chiropractic & Injury Center carefully select the proper type of massage for your issue and goals. They perform massage slowly to treat the exact areas that are causing you pain.
Which conditions can massage help improve?
If you're experiencing chronic pain, a deep tissue massage can provide the relief you need. Talk to the Lynnwood Chiropractic & Injury Center team about your pain relief options if you have:
- Postural problems
- Back pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Tennis elbow
- Mobility issues
- Neck pain

A massage is especially helpful following a sports injury, car accident, or repetitive muscle injuries. Regardless of your condition, your massage therapist will discuss your massage options and tailor your session to your needs.
What happens during a massage?
The goal of a massage is to provide long-lasting pain relief and improve your body's overall function. Generally, massage breaks up deep knots and releases rigid tissue. However, there are varied techniques based on your goals and your massage experience.
Your massage therapist starts by applying light pressure to warm up your muscles before they begin targeting the areas where you experience pain most often.
Next, they use their hands, thumbs, knuckles, forearms, and elbows to work out your knots, rigid tissue, and scar tissue. During your massage, your therapist may also guide you through specific breathing exercises to help your muscles relax.
Typically, you can expect your session to last about an hour, although longer sessions are sometimes needed. It's normal to feel slightly sore after your massage, but this soreness can be managed with rest or ice.
