Massage for Quicker Healing

Did you know your muscles have their own memory? Through chiropractic adjustments, your nervous system is altered. We work to re-educate your body into holding a new pattern. Massage therapy is effective in speeding up that process. Although we love seeing each of our patients, we want you to need our care less and less. Adding massage therapy to your care plan can ensure your body is holding adjustments better.
