Massage therapy is used to reduce muscle spasm, increase circulation, increase lymphatic flow and most importantly, to reduce stress. We believe it is a great compliment to chiropractic care and focuses on keeping the muscles healthy and balanced.
Our trained and licensed therapists offer a variety of types of massage, with many specializing in a special technique called myofascial release. This massage technique, in particular, helps to free adhesions within muscle and its casing.
Standard pricing for massages:
$100 - 90 minutes
$70 - one hour
$40 - half hour

Massage therapy sessions are extremely good and well received. They are a good value. I do refer this office very often and not always for just the adjustments.C.K. Dudley
The massage therapist was exceptionally professional and demonstrated extensive knowledge of treatment techniques. The results of the deep tissue massage were immediate and surprisingly effective. Prior to my treatment I would frequently awake during the night due to discomfort. After treatment, I sleep through the night.Alan S.
