What is massage therapy?

Massage is a manual therapy, meaning a hands on technique to utilize pressure to manipulate the soft tissues of the body (muscles, fascia, tendons, etc) as well as create fluid movement within the body.

Who applies the massage therapy?

We have multiple state licensed and board-certified professional massage therapists. Licensed massage therapists (LMT’s) go through a multi-year academic program to learn about the anatomy, physiology, and other details of the human body in order to understand injuries and be able to correctly apply their craft.

Does insurance cover massage therapy?

Most insurance companies do not pay for massage therapy alone. However, when combined with chiropractic care, we always check your insurance benefits free of charge to see if you can get any portion of your massage therapy covered by your health insurance plan.

Is massage therapy safe?

Like any treatment, there are some risks involved with massage therapy. However, the risks are mild and generally only affect a miniscule percentage of patients. Patients who are especially sensitive to touch and pressure may complain of soreness, and any condition sensitive to fluid movement such as cancer, infection, or deep vein thrombosis may contraindicate massage therapy. If you have any questions, your chiropractor will discuss any potential side effects of massage therapy with you.
