Massage therapy and chiropractic are an extremely effective combination in restoring health and function. We staff two massage therapists who offer healing powers and health benefits through injury treatment, relaxation and hot stone massage.
Healing Powers of Massage
The healing powers of massage have been recognized since antiquity. In the 5th century BC, the Greek physician Hippocrates wrote that his colleagues should be experienced "in rubbing…for rubbing can bind a joint that is too loose, and loosen a joint that is too ridged. "Various forms of massage were also employed by the ancient Chinese, Egyptians, and Romans. However, the technique as we know it today didn't appear until the late 19th century.
In addition to its general health benefits, massage has shown value for a variety of special problems in a host of recent medical studies. Our well-trained massage therapists employ their hands as finely tuned yet powerful tools to promote wellness. As awareness grows and misconceptions fade regarding the value of massage therapy, more and more people are discovering the profound benefits available to them through regular body work. The origins of therapeutic massage are rooted in the common cultures as an integral part of health care and maintenance.
