Massage Therapy is a method of healing that utilizes human touch to promote relaxation, relief of tension, and a greater level of well being. There are numerous methods and techniques of massage, ranging from the most gentle, superficial stimulation to deep, forceful manipulation of muscle groups. Massage is used as a complement to many other forms of healing. Massage Therapy promotes healthy circulation, ease of movement, deep breathing, strong immunity, and mental clarity. Massage lowers stress and anxiety levels, reduces blood pressure, and shortens the healing time of injuries. Massage is an effective way to increase the body's receptivity to chiropractic alignment. Used before an adjustment to warm and soften tight muscles, and afterward, to encourage the body to accept and retain the treatment.
