What Is Chiropractic Massage Therapy
Chiropractic Massage has been Proven to Assist In:
Deep Tissue Massage
Though originally designed to help athletes perform at optimum levels during games, sports massage is growing in popularity as an effective treatment for sports-related injuries or limited range of motion. Sports massage focuses on a client’s trouble spots, like shoulder soreness after eighteen holes of golf, or a tender hamstring just before a big race. Sports massage therapists understand sport-related injuries, and can help minimize pain, speed recovery and help clients perform their best at their favorite activities with full range of motion.
There are four variations of sports massage and choosing the right one is based on the client’s current level of discomfort and upcoming athletic events:
Hot Stone Massage
Swedish (Relaxation) Massage
Considered the perfect balance of therapy and relaxation, Swedish massage is universally popular for its gentle yet effective results and benefits. Swedish massage is the perfect “beginner’s massage,” providing gentle pressure and friction that soothe sore muscles and loosen tight joints. Among its many benefits, Swedish massage effectively eases tension, wipes out stress and promotes deep relaxation
The pressure and amount of friction used during a Swedish massage can range from light to firm, depending on the preference of the client and the goals of the therapist. As with any massage procedure, the client’s comfort level is of the highest importance and clearly expressing touch and pressure preferences to the therapist can only enhance the overall experience and increase the effectiveness of the massage.
Medical massage uses advanced techniques to assess the issues that cause pain and limited range of motion. This modality uses a variety of different techniques such as: deep tissue massage, myofascial release, Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy, trigger point therapy and Rapid Neurofascial Reset. Medical massage may help with: upper back pain and lower back pain, headaches/migraines, limited range of motion, shoulder issues, knee issues, sciatica etc. The majority of your medical massage will focus on problem areas, so don’t be alarmed if you don’t get a full body massage.
Your skin is your first impression to the world, so shouldn’t it be an important part of your wellness routine? Facials, and the treatments correlated with facials, are essential to keeping your skin looking and feeling great. Although there are several different types of facials, a basic facial is a skin treatment that cleanses pores, exfoliates away dead skin cells, and treats common skin concerns with a custom mask. This multi-step process is meant to rejuvenate and nourish faces, making skin appear healthier and younger. Our esthetician, Tirzah, is a licensed esthetician with over 15 years of experience in the beauty industry. She is excited and ready to assist you with your skincare goals and needs. Along with basic facials, Tirzah offers micro-needling, derma-planing, microdermabrasion, light therapy and waxing.
