Deep Tissue Massage, combined with Chiropractic Care

Are you dealing with chronic pain? Are you limited by stiffness or soreness in your daily activities? Have you experienced trauma, an accident or injury? Let us identify how Deep Tissue Massage, combined with Chiropractic Care can provide the relief you have been searching for Massage; relaxing, rejuvenating, and healing. Not all massage modalities are meant to be relaxing, but all are meant to be healing. Deep Tissue massage is often mistaken as being the same as a Swedish massage with deep pressure.  However, it is its own modality unique in the way it focuses on the deeper layers of muscles. Focusing on a specific area of pain, your massage therapist will apply slow, deep, direct treatment to the affected muscles, searching for any adhesions or trigger points. Because of this Deep Tissue Massage is excellent for:



  • Relief from chronic pain
  • Restoring limited mobility
  • Recovery from injuries
  • Repetitive strain injuries, such as carpel tunnel syndrome
  • Relief for muscle spasm and tension
  • Individuals whom have not had relief with other forms of massage treatments

Once the muscles are relieved of adhesions and trigger points, it allows the chiropractic adjustment to be even more effective. No tight or taunt muscles to pull and strain the bones back into misalignment. Therefore, while deep tissue massage addresses and repairs the musculature needs and Chiropractic care addresses and repairs the structural needs, combined together they provide maximum rehabilitation and healing.

Following a Deep Tissue massage and chiropractic adjustment, it is common to experience soreness or tenderness in the areas of concentration; again this is common and will likely go away within 24 hours. It is very important, especially following deep tissue massage treatments, to drink plenty of water. Did you know that PLENTY means dividing your body weight in half and drinking that many ounces of water? Feeling like a fish just thinking about it? Imagine how much better you’ll feel because you do. Drinking the recommended amounts of water following treatment is the key to help aid the body in recovery and minimize soreness.
