Massage therapy can absolutely be combined with our other services. In fact, we often recommend chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy for a combined approach to healing, health, and wellness. The adjustments help ensure that your spine and extremity joints are properly aligned and reaching their maximum ranges of motion. When massage therapy is used prior to an adjustment, our chiropractor does not have to use as much force to adjust the joint, and the adjustment lasts longer, giving your body more time to heal.
