Chiropractic and Massage Therapy...

Massage therapists use a variety of techniques to address soft tissue problems. Gentle kneading and stretching lengthens contracted muscles and fascia. Techniques such as sustained pressure, ice massage and stretching can release trigger points.  Painful sprains and strains, as well as myofacial adhesions, can be addressed directly with massage techniques that improve circulation and stimulate healthy separation and realignment of injured fibers.

In general, massage increases circulation. This reduces painful swelling and inflammation, and promotes healing by removing waste products and brining nutrients to you tissues.  Like a sponge absorbing water, both fascia and muscles begin to soften and lengthen.

Both massage and chiropractic offer preventative care to support you ongoing good health and well-being.  A timely visit to your chiropractor can reestablish normal alignment and mobility before secondary soft tissue problems develop.

Regular massage can release chronically contracted muscles and fascia, improving the balance among muscle groups and promoting healthful circulation. Your body will be more resilient in the face of daily stresses, less prone to injury and subluxation.  Finally, massage triggers the body’s relaxation response, interrupting a cycle of stress and muscle tension that can build in response to life’s challenges.  Feeling relaxed and rejuvenated after a massage, you are less likely to slip into patterns of tension that could contribute to soft tissue problems and subluxations.
