Massage Therapy

Message therapy is comprised of many different hands-on techniques which will be specifically applied based on your condition to the involved soft tissues in order to relax and improve the healing properties. This therapy when combined with chiropractic is a very effective way to decrease the amount of pain and suffering as well as decrease the amount of time needed in order to properly heal from an injury.


 

  • Deep Tissue A deep tissue massage focuses strong pressure on the connective tissues of the muscles to eliminate tension, reduce tightness, and relieve muscle pain. This style of massage is especially effective for those with chronically tight and tense areas – like backs, necks, and shoulders.
    • Injury Treatment Injury treatment massage involves firm, penetrating touch for those who have specific needs related to an auto accident or sports injury. Many people are able to find healing from such trauma through regular massage visits.
      • Swedish Swedish massage uses firm but gentle pressure to restore the body to a relaxed state. The practitioner uses long, gliding strokes to promote circulation, relieve sore muscles, and improve flexibility. This is an excellent massage for those who prefer a lighter touch, or for those who are new to massage therapy.
        • Pregnancy Prenatal massage is uniquely designed for a pregnant woman's changing body. The practitioner supports the mother's frame through the use of pillows and comfortable positions, to ensure her complete relaxation. This type of massage is known to reduce tension, relieve postural discomfort and pain, improve sleep, increase muscle tone, and minimize stress and depression-related hormones. Regular sessions contribute to the overall well-being of the mother while improving labor outcomes and the general health of the baby. Regular massage also keeps the body and skin supple and reduces the chance of developing stretch marks. Pregnancy massage is generally safe for women in their second and third trimesters, though some women with certain conditions may need to check with their provider beforehand.
