Massage is a good complement to chiropractic care and a natural way to reduce stress, enhance relaxation and correct imbalances. A relaxed, stress-free body is more resilient and resistant to illness. The certified massage therapists at AltCare Health Center can provide you a variety of massage modalities to choose from including:
- Swedish Massage: A light, multiple stroke massage done with the finger tips and palms for general relaxation and detection of tight muscles.
- Deep Tissue Massage: A massage focused on one or two specific problem areas of tension and stress. Deeper pressure is used than in a relaxation massage to release the tightness of constricted muscle.
- Prenatal Massage: For the mothers-to-be, a massage for general relaxation and musculoskeletal back relief from the added weight of pregnancy and its distribution.
- Sports Massage: An invigorating massage that is beneficial to anyone that is active in exercise. This massage consists of mostly compressions, mobilizations and stretches.
