Massage therapy offers many health benefits and can help everyone. While massage provides well needed relaxation, it is also very therapeutic to reduce pain and inflammation in the muscles and ligaments and aids in the recovery from injury and workouts. At Alpine Chiropractic and Massage we provide therapeutic massage as a compliment to chiropractic care in order to decrease recovery time from injury.
Massage therapy also helps:
- Provide overall wellness
- Addresses postural distortions and misalignments
- Reduces stress
- Improves sleep
- Helps depression and anxiety
- Bolster the immune system
- Support the body’s natural healing process
- Increases circulation
We utilize massage therapy in conjunction with chiropractic care in order to help you achieve optimal results. You will feel better and more relaxed because of our unique integrative approach. Additionally, massage therapy combined with chiropractic care will help to increase the speed of recovery from injury.
