Together, massage therapy and chiropractic care aid the body's natural healing process. Although the focus is different for each modality, practitioners in both camps agree that when massage is incorporated into a chiropractic treatment program, the results are better. Musculoskeletal problems are a combination of spinal subluxations and the muscles attached. By loosening the muscle attachments to the spine, the therapy is working on both muscle and the skeleton for the net effect. The adjustment is more effective and longer lasting when the muscle attachments are relaxed.

Frequently Asked Questions:
How Will I Feel After The Massage or Bodywork Session?
Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience freedom from long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity, which can last for days. Toxins are released from your soft tissues during a massage, so please drink plenty of water afterward.
What Are The Benefits Of Massage And Bodywork?
Massage and bodywork can help release chronic muscular tension and pain, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce mental and physical fatigue and stress, promote faster healing of injured muscular tissue, improve posture, and reduce blood pressure. Massage and bodywork are also
known to promote better sleep, improve concentration, reduce anxiety, and create an overall sense of well-being.
Are There Medical Conditions That Would Make Massage Or Bodywork Inadvisable?
Yes. That’s why it’s imperative that before you begin your session, the practitioner ask general health questions. It is very important that you inform the practitioner of any health problems or medications you are taking. If you are under a doctor’s care, it is strongly advised that you receive a written
recommendation for massage or bodywork prior to any session. Many practitioners may require a recommendation or approval from your doctor.
Where Will My Massage or Bodywork Session Take Place?
Your massage or bodywork session will take place in a warm, comfortable, quiet room. Soft music may be played to help you relax. You will lie on a table especially designed for your comfort.
Must I Be Completely Undressed?
Most massage and bodywork techniques are traditionally performed with the client unclothed; however, you may decide what amount of clothing you prefer to wear for your own comfort. You will be properly draped during the session at all times to keep you warm and comfortable. Only the area being worked on will be exposed.
Will The Practitioner Be Present When I Disrobe?
The practitioner will leave the room while you undress, relax onto the table, and cover yourself with a clean sheet and blanket.
