Often misalignments of the spine and the extremities – shoulders, arms, elbows, wrists, hands, fingers, legs, feet, ankles, toes, jaw (TMJ) – are made worse or can be caused by muscle imbalance or strain.
Overly tight muscles, lax and underactive muscles, muscle strains, and muscle imbalances can all contribute to misalignments (known as subluxations in Chiropractic terminology). Deep tissue massage can help relieve these muscle issues and work together with the Chiropractic Adjustment to speed healing and a return to normal function.
Deep tissue massage is exactly what it sounds like. Utilizing deep pressure to your tolerance we massage the muscles going with the direction the muscle fibers go, called stripping massage, and also going across the fibers, called cross friction massage.
This is not your Momma’s light touch feel good massage, and it isn’t for everyone.
The deep pressure is designed to interrupt the muscles’ patterns of tightness and spasming. The deep massage combined with a Chiropractic Adjustment after the massage can be very beneficial. Available in 30 minute or 60 minute time blocks.
