Massage Therapy is defined as “the manipulating of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques, to enhance function, aid in the healing process, decrease muscle reflex activity, inhibits motor-neuron excitability and promote relaxation and well-being”.
What does this mean to you, you might wonder… it means getting back to the things you love to do and feeling great while doing them. Therapeutic massage is an excellent complement to chiropractic treatment and can help you reach your health goals faster than chiropractic care alone. Our therapists are both highly trained to make your massage as comfortable as possible while utilizing their skills to help your body during the recovery process.
Both of our therapists are certified in intra-oral massage, which focuses on massaging through the mouth, which can help treat pain and other symptoms of the jaw, such as popping, clicking and locking of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Your dentist may have even diagnosed you with TMJD or TMJS, the symptoms of these conditions can be alleviated with intra-oral massage. Co-managing your TMJ symptoms with your chiropractor can help ensure that the cause is identified and being addressed; this greatly increases the likelihood of long term success.
Whether it’s utilized as an incredible complement to chiropractic care or a stand-alone therapy, our massage therapy services are just one of the many research-proven ways we use to improve your health.
