As part of our inter-disciplinary health team
Massage is a “hands-on” therapy similar to chiropractic however the focus is more on the muscles rather than the joints which is the specialty of Chiropractors. We work closely with our massage therapist to achieve maximum results with our patients. The practice of Massage goes way back: it is an old therapy now with many different branches. Primarily the goal is to relieve pain by working on the soft tissues which will relax, improve the tone, and stimulate blood flow in the body.

Its not just about feeling good, the massage therapist works on not only the muscles but also the tendons and ligaments. If you look at the anatomy of the body you will find that there are many layers of muscles and the therapist works with those just underneath the skin but also goes much deeper almost down to the organs. Blood circulation is a well known benefit of this therapy but it may also help the lymphatic system which can improve digestion and elimination of food.
The effects of massage are similar to chiropractic and work in succession to previous visits. Essentially they are cumulative in benefit with regular care. With both strengthening and toning this will help prevent injuries or strains that can be caused by unhealthy muscle tone.
Both Massage & Chiropractic can help with the nervous system -depending upon what is required by the individual-and thus help reduce fatigue, leaving the receiver with a feeling of replenished energy. At its best, massage has the potential to restore the individual physically, mentally and spiritually.
