Massage Therapy & Chiropractic Therapy
While most people associate massage therapists as just those who make you feel good, they can do so much more than that. A lot of people will attend chiropractors, who are medical professionals, to deal with back, neck, and spine problems. They may need readjusting, and bones put back into place. They are extremely beneficial for many people, however, they do not necessarily deal with knots, and muscular issues.
While it is certainly true that Chiropractors are in fact doctors, with a formal education, massage therapists such as Blue PacificMassage & Body Works are trained in other aspects of the healing of the body. It is not uncommon for those receiving chiropractic therapy, to also seek out a massage therapist to help assist with the muscular, and tendon issues. If the client informs me, as they should, about any chiropractic treatment they are receiving, I can easily work the massage with that treatment, and focus on helping maintain the work the chiropractor has done.
A professional massage therapist will never attempt to take the place of a Chiropractor they will just be qualified, and trained to enhance the treatment already received. No method or technique I use, will ever “un-do” the treatment you've received from a Chiropractor. I will always question clients on what treatment they are receiving, where, and why, so I can devise a massage plan to work in with the existing treatment.
Many can feel pain following a chiropractic treatment, and this is where a trained, qualified massage therapist can help. By aiding with the aches, and pains, the muscles will assist in keeping the chiropractic adjustment stick. I am quite able to assist not only before or after chiropractic visits, but with any injury, or muscular issue you are experiencing.

Massage and Spinal Stenosis
Spinal stenosis an abnormal narrowing (stenosis) of the spinal canal that may occur in any of the spine regions. The narrowing causes a restriction in the spinal canal, resulting in a neurological deficit. It can be a very painful condition that causes great discomfort due to the degenerative effects on the neck and back. A professional massage can be used to greatly alleviate the pain and discomfort. If not diagnosed and treated properly, this painful condition can lead to chronic back and neck pain, which can limit the daily activities of the sufferer. Household chores, work, and even family fun time can be a challenge.
Normally, the pain of spinal stenosis is located in the lower back, as well as the neck region. It can also radiate to arms, hips, and legs. Flexibility may be lost, and discomfort can occur when leaning backwards. Some people may also suffer numbness, tingling, and cramping. Walking for any extended period of time can also prove difficult, as well as stretching. A professionalmassage is beneficial for all these negative effects that spinal stenosis has on a person's life.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is always advised to first contact your healthcare provider. You need to ascertain whether the pain is actually caused by spinal stenosis, as you also need to be able to inform me first, so I can devise a massage plan to assist.
How Can I Help?
· Deep Tissue Massage – this technique is used to reach deeper into the muscles and puts direct pressure to release the muscle tension in your tendons, ligaments, and muscles.
· Swedish Massage – The five basic strokes are effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber) and vibration/shaking.
· Cranial Sacral – this involves a gentle manipulation of the soft tissues and bones of the head, as well as the pelvis and spine.
How much massage therapy needed will greatly depend on the client's condition. Some people need ongoing regular massage therapy in order to live a fully functional lifestyle. However, with an individually devised massage program for your particular condition, and even pain level, I can greatly assist in reducing some of the symptoms, and have you feeling much better.

Scoliosis and Massage Therapy
Scoliosis is no longer a word to fear. A lot of people may have been checked in school to see if they had signs of this ailment. Some don't develop problems until later in life, so it can go undetected for quite some time. Basically, scoliosis is a lateral curvature of the spine (as above). It can cause back pain and a lot of muscular discomfort. Muscles have a difficult time trying to keep the body straight, and can therefore find themselves overworked, which leads to pain. This is where a professional massage therapist Hesperia, can help.
Scoliosis can also be combined with a condition called “kyphosis.” This condition causes a forward arching of the spine, and over the shoulders, (kyphoscoliosis). We will often see this condition in people who look hunched over. Long hours working at a desk and being hunched over a computer, can increase this horrible condition. It becomes difficult to sit up straight, and can make the chest muscles tight, and can even affect breathing.
Blue Pacific Massage and Body Works, is a professional massage therapy business that can provide specialized sports massage techniques to restore functionality, and pain free movement in the bodies of scoliosis sufferers. If someone is already being treated for scoliosis, professional sports massage therapy can assist greatly. it is however, extremely important to advise your massage therapist of what treatment is currently being received, so they can work with the other treatment, and not against it.
Using various methods and techniques, a professional massage therapist can restore movement to the tight muscles that are pressing on the nerves. When muscles are worked on, and the tightness is eased, the pain will also start to ease. Built up toxins are also released, and will work toward a more pain free back area.
It is very important to remember that you should only entrust this type of massage to an experienced professional massage therapist which can be found at Blue Pacific Massage and Body Works massage business in Hesperia CA. With years of experience, training, and qualifications, Terree is a true professional in various modalities and methods for a very wide range of massage techniques.
No massage therapist can reverse the body's decision to have bones growing in a different direction however they can assist with necessary pain management, and give you exercises to perform at home. The correct exercises will help reduce the pain, and give you more freedom of movement.
For any professional sports massage therapy, pain management therapy or even developing a personalized massage program, contact Blue Pacific Massage and Bodyworks (760) 680 7910, and help find a healthier and more pain free you....

Swedish Massage Explained
Most of us have heard the term “Swedish Massage,” but probably most do not know it's origin, or how beneficial it can actually be. Swedish physiologist, Per Henrik Ling, pioneered both Swedish massage, and physical therapy at the University of Stockholm in the early 19th century. Ling developed a system called “Medical Gymnastics” which incorporated movements performed by a professional therapist. This technique was brought to the United States in 1858, and is known as Swedish massage.
Swedish massage is now the most common and probably best known massage technique in the west. But how exactly can it benefit you? Swedish massage involves the massage therapist using certain massage strokes to relieve muscle pain. Depending on your own individual needs, a professionally trained Swedish massage therapist, can either use slow and gentle techniques, or vigorous, and bracing. A professionally trained Swedish massage therapist will first work to relax the muscles, and prepare them for deeper strokes or “deep tissue” therapy. Normally an experienced Swedish massage therapist will require about 50 to 60 minutes of your time to ensure you get the most benefit from this technique.
Blue Pacific Massage and Body Works, is a professional massage therapy business located in Hesperia, California. Owner/operator Terree Nelson, is a highly qualified, and trained CMT, certified massage therapist. Trained in a wide variety of massage styles, and techniques, Terree's focus is on the wellness, and health of her clients. A professional Swedish massage therapist, among many other styles, Terree explains the entire process to each and every client, and takes the time to find every area that requires work.
Keeping to the correct Swedish massage technique, Terree first lubricates the skin with massage oil, and performs a variety of massage strokes to warm up the muscle tissue, release tension, and gradually break up any muscle “knots.” Among the many benefits of Swedish massage, this technique also promotes relaxation. It is always highly advised to inform Terree of any injuries, or conditions you are suffering. Unlike many other massage therapists, Terree communicates throughout the entire massage, to ensure you are completely comfortable, and to discuss any degree of discomfort you may be feeling.
If you are someone who requires deeper massage work, and can tolerate more pressure, and even moments of discomfort to get relief from muscle pain, then discuss with Terree how a Swedish massage can benefit you.
You can call Blue Pacific Massage and Body Works on, (760) 680 7910 to arrange an appointment, and to also discuss your specific needs. Terree can even design a personalized massage, and wellness program, just for you.

Drinking water after the massage, will also aid in flushing the toxins from you system.
