We have 3 highly skilled and experienced Massage Therapists in our office, two female and one male. We offer treatments 7 days a week. 50, 80 and 110 minute slots are available. Massage Therapy has been around for many thousands of years. It’s a very natural and logical interaction between humans (and animals). Getting a Therapeutic Massage is very beneficial in many ways.

Therapeutic Massage is Helpful for…

• Promoting soft tissue healing of muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia
• Reducing muscle spasms and tight muscles
• Lengthening contracted soft tissues as a result of injury, surgical intervention or stress
• Lowering blood pressure, cortisol levels, adrenaline levels
• Lowering stress and anxiety
• Children with learning and motor disabilities
• Prenatal health
• Helping athletes perform at much higher levels and recover faster
• An excellent adjunct to Chiropractic care
• Headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, bursitis, sprains and strains
• When doctor-directed, good for the last 10% of post-surgical joint rehab, regarding flexibility, strength and better balance.
• It’s excellent to promote lymph drainage which helps the immune system and cleanse the lymphatic system.
• Reduction of scar tissue

Why We Offer Massage Therapy

What sets our office apart is that Dr. Thomas utilizes Certified Massage Therapists with pre-chiropractic care from the first day. If this proves beneficial, a full massage session may be recommended.

PAIN SPREADS

Pain in the soft tissues can spread throughout the body because it causes protective muscle “guarding” in surrounding areas. Over time, tight, inflamed muscles suffer poor circulation and oxygenation and can develop adhesions which prevent muscles from lengthening completely. Small areas of pain called trigger points can also develop, often causing pain or tingling in other areas in the body. In some situations, tight muscles, tendons or ligaments can pinch nerves. These are called entrapments. Some people elect to receive surgery for these problems. With appropriate massage techniques, the cause of the pinch can be relaxed and the nerve will heal naturally. In these difficult instances, Dr. Thomas will provide specific instruction to the massage thereapists regarding appropriate techniques and will do the initial therapy himself.

THAI MASSAGE

We also offer Thai massage. Thai massage is an ancient and powerful method of bodywork that combines deep compressions, acupressure and passive yoga-like stretching. You will wear loose and comfortable clothing for this treatment. Please specify when booking if you would like a Thai massage.

HELP WITH COMMON ISSUES

Chronic pain, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, tendinitis and Fibromyalgia issues also respond well to our form of soft tissue work. Every therapist works on Dr Thomas and the rest of the staff, so we know they are excellent and have multiple talents. Ask us for a recommendation.

CUSTOMIZED TREATMENT

Dr. Thomas typically prescribes massage therapy to some patients with specific issues. He then discusses the case and the goals with your therapist to attain those goals.
