Achy sore muscles, stiff neck, headaches, joint pain are all problems that can benefit from massage therapy. Massage therapy helps improve circulation to your muscles, help your body rid itself of harmful toxins and help reduce joint pain by relaxing all the muscles, tendons and ligaments that control them. Cape Fear Chiropractic offers a variety of massage therapy options, including beneficial Cranial Sacral Therapy and massage enhancement with aromatherapy.

Chiropractic therapeutic massage uses principles of both chiropractic and holistic medicine to relax muscles, improve circulation, and help relieve pain. When muscles are stiff or sore, they can have a negative effect on the skeletal system and cause additional pain, headaches, swelling, and other issues. There are a number of different types of massage that can be used in conjunction with other chiropractic treatment to relive stress, help relieve body pain and headaches, and help accelerate healing after an injury. Massage can also be helpful in treating conditions such as fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, depression, and insomnia.

Not only does Cape Fear Chiropractic offer traditional types of massage, but also we go one step further with innovative Cranial Sacral Therapy. It is a form of massage that targets the bones of the head, spine, and sacrum (lower back) to relive pain and stimulate the nervous system. Cranial Sacral Therapy helps to relieve compression in these areas, which lessens pain and stress. By manipulating the muscles in these areas, it helps them to relax and allow the skeletal structures of the body to return to their natural positions. Cranial Sacral Therapy is especially helpful in helping to relieve and prevent migraines, lessen pain in all areas of the spine, which in turn can help relieve pain in the extremities. Cranial Sacral Therapy also helps relieve overall stress to help create an improved sense of well-being. Cranial Sacral Therapy benefits can also be enhanced with the addition of aromatherapy.

Aromatherapy uses natural oils from flowers, leaves, roots and other parts of plants to bring about a physiological and physical feeling of well-being. Inhaling the aroma of these oils is believe to stimulate brain function and when used on the skin can help encourage better circulation and be absorbed into the body itself. Aromatherapy when combined with therapeutic massage can enhance pain relief, relieve stress, improve mood and even promote better cognitive function.
