Massage is critical in treating musculoskeletal injuries, improving range of motion, providing pain and tension relief, and even lowering cortisol levels and blood pressure for stress relief.  Massage will typically be included with chiropractic appointments, which means for some patients it will be covered by insurance.

Most massage visits are 60 minutes, but 90 minutes are also available.  Please call our office to inquire about rates.
