'Tensegrity' is an inherent property of the human body which gives it flexibility, stability, protection from injury and optimal healing when injury occurs. Recent scientific research conclusively demonstrates that tensegrity is an essential component of human design from the macro level of structural integrity down to the micro level of cell physiology and energy.

Tensegrity Bodyworks was established in September of 2015. Jason Salters, educated at the Baltimore School of Massage, York Campus, is skilled in both Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage, and excels at deep tissue. His focus on chronic back, neck, and hip issues, aids his clients in finding relief from their discomfort.

Massage Therapy can be an integral part of chiropractic care and can be incorporated into chiropractic care for many reasons. A massage done at a local salon or spa of course feels wonderful, and can be incredibly rejuvenating, however, chronic pain or fatigue can return rather quickly. This is in part because the underlying cause of pain is not being addressed.

On the other hand, a therapeutic massage performed along with the medical knowledge and guidance of a medical practitioner, like a chiropractor, can change the course of your rehabilitation. If you have had a recent surgery, a therapeutic massage can make a great difference in your healing time. Not to mention, can immensely help reduce the appearance of scar tissue.

I am often asked how often should I get a massage. The standard recommendation from other massage businesses is once a month. My recommendation will depend on what your goals are for massage. I’ll also carefully consider your individual condition and lifestyle.

It’s important to remember two things about massage. 1) The effects of massage are cumulative. So your second massage builds on the good effects of your first, and so on. If you receive your massages too far apart, then with each massage you are back at square one. What a waste of your money! 2) One massage won’t “fix” a chronic problem. It has taken days, weeks, or even years to develop a stiff neck or painful low back. The condition won’t be reversed in 1 hour. With that in mind, I’ve included some general guidelines below.

If you are including massage in a general wellness plan to reduce stress and relax tight muscles, once a month is a good recommendation. If you’re going through an especially stressful time or have a high stress life, coming every 1-2 weeks can help establish a pattern of relaxation. Athletes training for an event and doing intense workouts often come in twice per week to help maintain flexibility and the healthy condition of their muscles. During less intense training, massage frequency may drop down to every two weeks or once a month. Clients working to relieve chronic muscle tension or long-term musculoskeletal problems (like headaches, shoulder and low back pain) need to come in more frequently for a short period of time. Typically weekly visits for 4-6 weeks can help overcome a chronic problem. With self-care, these clients can then work back to a maintenance schedule that’s right for them, typically about once a month. When you have an acute condition such as a muscle strain or spasms, frequent visits (2-3 per week) of shorter duration (30 min) for a 1-3 weeks often help resolve problems. You can then diminish frequency until you reach a maintenance schedule to help keep you pain-free.

Remember each person is unique, and you should listen to your body. The amount of self-care (stretching, stress reduction, etc) you do at home will effect how quickly you recover. When working with an acute or chronic condition, it’s important to wait until you consistently feel pain-free to drop the frequency of your massages.
