We believe that massage therapy is a perfect compliment to chiropractic care. The benefits of massage therapy have been proven to deliver significant health changes that can improve your life both physically and mentally.

Massage therapists have a variety of techniques to address various musculo-skeletal issues. Gentle kneading and stretching can relax strained, contracted muscles and relieve irritated fascia. Ligament sprains and muscle strains, as well as adhered fascia, can be relieved directly by massage therapy, which can increase circulation, range of motion, and help tissue properly repair. This can also reduce swelling and and promote healing by removing waste products and bringing in nutrient rich blood flow. This will help increase and speed up the healing process.
Soft tissue irritation and guarding can actually spread because it causes protective muscle tightening in surrounding areas. Over time, tight, inflamed muscles and fascia (together called myofascia) suffer poor circulation and can develop glue-like myofascial adhesions, which prevent muscles from lengthening completely. Painful trigger points can also develop, often referring pain or tingling to other areas in the body. In extreme cases, tight muscles can compress nerves or blood vessels.
Addressing soft tissue injuries are an important complement to chiropractic care. While a chiropractor can help your nervous system correct itself, massage can also help muscles, ligaments and fascia.
