Our massage team is well versed in a variety of techniques for your massage needs such as Swedish, Deep Tissue, Cross friction, and more. Whether you are looking to relax after a stressful day or just trying to recover from a car accident, they will be able to fit your massage needs. They also coordinate their care with our doctors if the patients are getting both chiropractic and massage done for their treatment. Having everyone under one roof allows for better communication between providers and therefore better coordination of care.
Some insurance carriers are now requiring that a doctor write a referral for their insurances to cover massage. Our doctors of chiropractic do write referrals for patients that are only seeking massage services. Simply ask our billing department to verify your benefits, and we will be able to tell you whether your insurance carrier requires a referral for your massage.
Support your active lifestyle
Massage relieves tired and sore muscle, improves flexibility, speeds recovery from strenuous exertion, and reduces anxiety of athletic competition.
Combats negative effects of aging
By keeping the body tissues in a more youthful state massage can enhance tissue elasticity and joint flexibility. It also helps to improve blood and lymph circulation, and immune system function.
