Frequently Asked Questions

Do you recommend chiropractic and massage?

Yes, they both complement each other. While chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the spine and how it impacts the nervous system, massage focuses on the 650 muscles of the body.

Both massage and chiropractic work in harmony to help keep the body properly aligned, balanced and functioning optimally.

What should I wear to the massage appointment?

We recommend that you wear comfortable clothing; however, therapeutic massage is usually performed with the client undressed. Rest assured that you will be appropriately draped at all times during your massage.

While most people undress completely, some elect to leave some clothing on such as underwear. You choose what level of comfort is right for you. Your massage therapist will respect your privacy at all times.

What will the massage feel like?

It depends on the techniques your therapist uses. Your session may begin with broad flowing strokes to initiate the relaxation process. Pressure will be gradually increased to relax particular areas and release bands of tight muscle.

Deep tissue massage or trigger point therapies use deeper pressure and more intensive techniques. The pressure should always be within your comfort level. If you would like to receive less or more pressure at any time, just let your therapist know.
