The Benefits of Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy

Life is full of many activities to take part in. Whether you are active at the gym, go for long walks, or play catch with your kids, all these activities may take a toll on your muscles and make you sore. Not only can physical activities cause your muscles to tighten up but also, the stress of a job and sitting at a desk for hours can also cause some aches and pains. With all the activities going on in your life, take time to treat yourself and your muscles to a relaxing massage therapy session.

Massage therapy is one of the most common forms of physical treatment. Massage therapists utilize the system of stroking, kneading, and applying pressure to various muscles, tendons and ligaments to help relax and relieve any pain or soreness.

While many know that a massage is a great way to relieve any pain or soreness, there are still many other great benefits for getting a massage. According to the Mayo Clinics website, research has shown that massage therapy may also be helpful for decreasing anxiety, relieving headaches, nerve pain, and sports injuries. A relaxing massage can also improve circulation, eliminate toxins from within the body, and improve muscle tone.

At 360 Chiropractic, we believe that our patients deserve to live happy and healthy lives, which is one reason why we gladly promote the wonderful benefits of massage therapy. By undergoing regular massage therapy treatments, you will not only enjoy the benefits of an improved health and physical condition, but you will feel more relaxed and will deal with stress more effectively.

Whether you’re dealing with a sports injury, an automotive injury, or the stress from hours of working, don’t waste another minute to get treated. The massage therapists at 360 Chiropractic are highly trained and are always adapting to the latest massage techniques and willing to accommodate to the specific needs of every patient. Our massage therapists offer specialized care that is second to none and will get you back to enjoying a pain and stress free life.

Patient Appreciation Week (July 14-18)

360 1

At 360 Chiropractic we thrive off our wonderful Central Minnesota community, so we would like to honor our fantastic patients with a week dedicated to them. July 14th- 18th, 2014 is Patient Appreciation Week here at 360 Chiropractic. This week is dedicated to give back to our great community that has supported us all these years.

Patient Appreciation Week is highlighted by two main events, the first is our Healthy Kids Day which will be held on Tuesday July 15th from 1pm to 6pm. Bring your kids for some fun and for a good learning experience. The Sartell Police and Fire Departments will be present to teach your kids all about how to stay safe. There will also be many games, giant inflatables, food, refreshments and chances to win many door prizes. We also invited many other local Health vendors to perform various screenings and provide more information on ways to keep our youngest patients healthy. 360 Chiropractic will also be providing all kids with free wellness visits and new kids will get an exam and adjustment with an appointment. We want to make sure all our young patients understand the benefits of living a healthy life.

Healthy Kids Day

The second main event to our week-long appreciation is our Patient Appreciation Day which will be held on Thursday July 17th from 8am to 6pm. This day will also be highlighted with food, refreshments and fun along with various fitness challenges for all to enjoy. All throughout the day we will have staff providing free chair massages as well as free wellness visits for all current patients of 360 Chiropractic with a $10 donation to the Anna Marie House for domestic violence, and new patients can get an exam and consultation at 360 Chiropractic for $20 with some of the proceeds going towards the Anna Marie House for domestic violence. Our goal this year is to raise $8,000.

The Anna Marie House for domestic violence operates 24 hours a day to provide shelter and support for women and their children who are experiencing domestic violence. They aim to accomplish a community free of violence.

Join us during our Patient Appreciation Week as we say thanks to our current patients, connect with new patients and give back to our wonderful community! We hope to see you!
