Ajax, ON -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/04/2014 --Harwood Chiropractic Centre in Ajax, Ontario, encourages patients to take advantage of the therapeutic and healing benefits of professional massage therapy. Ontario residents can consider a variety of massage therapy treatments when undergoing chiropractic treatment for pain, wellness or injury. Massage therapy treatment is non-invasive and has been shown effective in correcting muscular dysfunctions and improving the body’s overall functionality and wellness for patients of any age. A skilled massage therapist can apply techniques for improving circulation, lymphatic function, and bolstering the immune system. Massage can relax muscles and connective tissues, increasing flexibility, releasing tension and alleviating chronic pain symptoms. It can break down soft scar tissue and adhesions that cause long-term pain and stimulate glands that reduce mental and physical fatigue, promote natural regenerative function and improve overall health by easing headache pain and improving sleep.

Massage therapy can also provide rejuvenating and healing results for seeking post-surgical and post-injury rehabilitation, treatment of sciatica symptoms, and certain severe activity injuries like rotator cuff tears and tennis elbow.
