Muscle strain and joint pain commonly plague men and women worldwide, limiting their movement and preventing them from enjoying meaningful activities. At The Wellness Institute of Dallas, our team works with Highland Park and Univesity Park patients by providing them with the latest massage therapy techniques to help ease inconvenient muscle tension and improve their daily routines.

What is massage therapy?

Massage therapy is a discipline that manually applies a wide array of techniques to reduce muscle tension, improve joint range, and relax the patient from head to toe. Our team of skilled chiropractors creates a highly tailored approach, targeting multiple areas of concern over several visits to help reach each patient’s goals. At The Wellness Institute of Dallas, patients who experience muscle tension and pain can benefit from our diverse massage therapy services.

Benefits of massage therapy

Men and women can experience numerous benefits from massage therapy, including:

  • Diminished muscle tension

  • Improved joint range and flexibility

  • Reduced body pain

  • Higher quality sleep

  • Greater blood circulation and immunity support

Each patient will respond differently depending on their ailments and personal goals.

Can anyone participate in massage therapy?

In most cases, massage therapy is an appropriate intervention for muscle tension with minimal side effects. Our team will review your personal and medical history to determine if you can safely participate in our massage therapy services. Patients with certain injuries may not be ideal candidates for massage therapy. Some patients with complicated medical histories may feel more comfortable by consulting with their primary physician first.

What a massage therapy session looks like

Massage therapy sessions take place at The Wellness Institute of Dallas within the comforts of one of our private treatment rooms. While a qualified team member leaves the treatment room, you may undress and put on special linens for your session. For full-body sessions, patients may undress completely or wear whatever clothing makes them feel the most comfortable. Your assigned clinician will apply hands-on techniques to each area of the body to reduce tension and promote relaxation.

How to care for my body after my session

Typically, patients may feel sore during the first couple of days after their sessions. Here are a few ways to help get the most mileage out of your massage therapy session and minimize muscle tension:

  • Stay moderately active during the first 24 – 48 hours after your session to keep the muscles and joints loose

  • Drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated, promote healthy blood circulation, and flush unhealthy toxins frequently released with massage therapy

  • Avoid heavy lifting or straining tasks that add to your muscle tension or cause you unnecessary pain

  • Contact us for any concerning or adverse effects

How many massage therapy sessions will I need?

The number of massage therapy sessions needed will vary by patient, depending on their health status, type of muscle tension and pain, personal goals, and our team’s professional recommendations. Consult with us at any time to discuss your unique treatment plan and how many massage therapy sessions to expect.
