Whether you’re seeking pain relief, relaxation or stress reduction, massage therapy can benefit you! This natural modality is appropriate for patients of all ages. Massage therapy is the manipulation of the body’s soft tissue (i.e., the skin, muscles, fascia, tendons and ligaments) using a variety of techniques.

How Massage and Chiropractic Complement Each Other

Massage therapy works hand-in-hand with chiropractic care by decreasing the muscle tension in the areas of the body that are affected. When massage is given before an adjustment, the areas of the spine that need to be adjusted are able to move more freely. Following the adjustment, massage can reduce any inflammation and help facilitate the recovery process.

Who can benefit from massage?

We recommend massage to everyone. The human body needs physical touch, and when that touch is healing, it’s even better.

Do I need to undress completely for my session?

It’s up to you. You can choose to do so or you can leave your underwear on. You always will be appropriately draped throughout your massage.

What should I do to prepare for my massage appointment?

Before getting a massage, you should be well hydrated. If you’ve just had a workout, please shower.

If I feel sick should I cancel my massage session?

It’s advised that if you have a cough or a fever to call ahead of time. Rescheduling a massage, when experiencing symptoms of illness, is always the smart move.
