Massage Therapy

What are the benefits of massage?

Massage has been found to improve circulation, joint range-of-motion and flexibility. It can reduce many common ailments such as stress, muscle tightness, aches and pains – even anxiety and depression.

Massage therapy is a perfect complement to chiropractic care.  Chiropractic focuses on the bones and the joints, and massage focuses on the muscles and soft tissue.  Taken together, these two powerful therapies can dramatically speed up your recovery.

1. CranioSacral Therapy – This is a light touch therapy which can help to release deep tensions within your core.  The experience of this technique can be very relaxing and can be done while you are fully clothed.  Click here for more information.

2. Lymph Drainage – Lymph is an essential body fluid which is often overlooked.  We each have thousands of vessels containing this fluid which helps to detoxify our cells and flush out body tissues.  This manual technique helps to encourage this circulation and clear up obstructions where the lymph may be clogged and toxins build up.

3. Lensen Technique – This is a procedure designed to help re-align the pelvis and lumbar spine.  This is similar to the techniques I use in a chiropractic adjustment, but instead of a dynamic thrust, the therapist uses a gentle resistance force to specific muscle contractions performed by the patient.

4. Kinesio Taping – This is essentially a specially designed self-adhesive fabric tape which is applied to specific muscle groups in the body to help support and optimize function of these areas.  The tape is left on for several days and enhances movement and provides significant pain relief.
