Millions of people seek chiropractic care or massage therapy to relieve or prevent pain and limited mobility. These two complimentary therapies, especially in combination, form a powerful healing approach to relieve pain and increase your body’s mobility and resilience. Over time, they offer a uniquely effective way to support your ongoing vitality and well-being.

Regular massage can release chronically contacted muscles and fascia, improving the balance among muscle groups and promoting healthful circulation. Your body will be more resilient in the face of daily stresses, less prone to pain and injury.

Our Massage therapists use a variety of techniques to address soft tissue problems. Gentle kneading and stretching lengthens contracted muscles and fascia. Techniques such as sustained pressure, ice massage and stretching can release trigger points. Sprains, strains and adhesion can be addressed directly with massage techniques that stimulate healthy separation and realignment of injured fibres.
