What is Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy consist of massaging, rubbing, or kneading the soft tissues of the body. The type of massages, techniques, and pressure that is needed is based on your condition and what you are trying to achieve in the end.

What is Massage Therapy Able to Treat?
Massage therapy is best known for its ability to provide pain relief. It's particularly beneficial to those with a recent injury or chronic pain.

- Arthritis pain and inflammation
- Chronic headaches or migraines

Massage can also treat issues that aren't purely physical. It can relax the body and mind, which can help to:

Types of Therapeutic Massages
There are several types of massage therapies. Depending on your preferences, goals, and health, one of the following might be right for you.
Swedish massage is the basis for many massage therapy techniques. During a Swedish massage, our chiropractors will use long gliding strokes, kneading, and tapping. This type of massage helps relax and elongates the muscles. This option is also great for relieving knots in muscles and increasing circulation.
Hot Stone Massage
As its name suggests, this massage involves the use of hot stones. These are typically basalt and holds heat well. The stones can be placed at specific points on your body to help relax the muscles. Our chiropractors may also use these along with Swedish massage techniques to massage your body with methods like long strokes and circular motions to ultimately help with quicker recovery.
Deep Tissue Massage
A deep tissue massage uses strong pressure to release tension and eliminate knots in the muscles. Along with the muscles, this type of massage focuses on the fascia, joints, and bones.
