Massage is more than a luxury; it is an Injury Treatment and Prevention Program.
Circulation and movement are fundamental keys to expediting achievement of optimal overall health. Receiving continuous massage care that provides these two elements will assist you in feeling more energetic and having the ability to recover more quickly from workouts or in the event that you sustain an injury.
“There is a difference in those that receive continual massage and those that wait until they get injured. Those that practice continual preventative therapies recover three times faster from injuries than those who wait until they get injured.” – Jacob Caldwell, L.M.P.
Increase your overall energy for the long-term by joining the monthly Massage Club.
Stress and injuries create tight muscles, which make your heart have to work harder to pump blood through tight channels. By consistently receiving therapeutic massages and boosting your circulation, instead of your heart using more strength to push nutrients of your blood around, your energy will be redirected in to maximizing other elements in your body.
Using Massage and Chiropractic together will reduce overall stress by helping you adapt to life’s stressors more effectively.
By working on your soft tissue, a Licensed Massage Practitioner will help enhance the ability of your muscles to recover while reducing the recovery time needed due to day to day stress. This means your muscles hold your adjustments better and for longer amounts of time. With Chiropractic and Massage all of the systems in your body work more efficiently. This means that your body will use less energy for basic functions leaving you with more energy for life! You will feel less stressed physically, mentally and emotionally, essentially making you happier.
