Chiropractic care is a conservative, non-invasive treatment used to relieve pain and treat underlying conditions of the neuromuscular system. Although it is highly effective on its own, the therapy works synergistically with massage therapy to deliver faster, more effective results. Massage prior to a chiropractic treatment helps loosen stiff muscles and make them more susceptible to manual adjustments. Many chiropractors not only recommend massage to patients – they offer it right in their offices.

Massages are available for durations of 30, 60, and 90 minutes. Plus, our massage therapists have many organic essential oils to help you relax!
Will I need to follow any special instructions following my massage?
Yes, but very simple ones. To allow your body to adjust to the change in muscle tension and avoid re-injury, it is recommended that you avoid any heavy lifting or strenuous activity in the hours immediately following your massage, and that you drink plenty of water to promote good circulation and assist your body in finding its new balance.
