Massage Therapy addresses soft tissue problems and is an important complement to chiropractic care. Massage Therapists use a variety of techniques to help with soft tissue problems. Stretching and kneading lengthens contracted muscles and fascia. Sustained pressure can relieve trigger points.
Massage increases circulation which reduces painful swelling and inflammation and promotes healing by removing toxins and bringing nutrients to the tissues. Recovery is normally faster and more complete when you address multiple components of your pain and add massage to your chiropractic regimen. Some patients find that their chiropractic treatments last longer when muscle tension is released that might otherwise pull your joints out of alignment again. Regular massage can help with chronically tight muscles and improve muscles balance along the spine and connected groups promoting healthful circulation. The body is much more resilient with chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy to face daily stresses and less prone to subluxations and injuries.
Massage and chiropractic are compatible holistic therapies that share the goal of your total well-being, not simply an absence of illness. Both offer natural, hands-on, drug-free techniques. Both work to resolve the cause of your pain rather than treat isolated symptoms. Used in combination, they can help you maintain your optimum health and enjoy life to the fullest.

In order to achieve our goal of optimal health and performance, we utilize techniques including; Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, Deep Tissue therapy, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point therapy and Active Release Technique.
