Massage therapy is often utilized in conjunction with chiropractic care because of its holistic healing properties. Massage can loosen tight muscles and relieve tension and stress.
When muscles are tense, they can cause misalignment in the spine. This can lead to a wide range of other issues. When tension and stress start to get you down, a massage can offer relief before the muscles misalign your spine or cause you to injure another part of your body.
Massage is also good for treating soft tissue damage and pain and increasing circulation throughout the body.
MASSAGE THERAPY OVERVIEW
Massage is the process during which a licensed massage therapist will knead and stretch muscles and other soft tissue. There are a variety of massage techniques that our therapists will use. They include deep tissue, Swedish, active-release and sports massage.
Our licensed massage therapists will spend some time asking you questions about the pain you are having, when it began and what actions you are doing when it bothers you the most. They will also ask you about past injuries and problems you may have had. This will help them determine the areas that need the most care and attention.
Many different techniques may be used to relieve muscle tension. Our licensed massage therapists can determine the best techniques to help you heal as quickly and safely as possible. The types of massage vary. You may choose to have the following types of massage:
- Deep tissue massage
