Massage Therapy has always been a perfect compliment to Chiropractic. Massage Therapy should not be considered a luxury or indulgence - it is a key component to injury recovery and optimum health.  Toxins trapped within soft tissues are released during massage therapy, enabling the body to transfer more oxygen and healthy nutrients to the muscle.  If you feel that you have nagging muscle discomfort, difficulty sleeping, headaches or general fatigue, Massage Therapy may be extremely beneficial to your recovery.

Our Massage Therapists are available by appointment Monday through Saturday.  Sessions are available in 30, 60, or 90 minute increments.  Want to schedule a massage while the office is closed (including Fridays)?  Click below and try our online scheduling!
