Massage Therapy has become an essential part of general health care for many people living in today’s stressful world. At The Natural Health Improvement Center, massage therapy is an integral part of your treatment prescription, designed to improve your quality of life. Many insurance companies now cover massage therapy (aka “manual therapy”) if there is a soft tissue component to your pain. (A Soft tissue injury or “STI”, is the damage of muscles, ligaments, and tendons throughout the body. Soft tissue injuries can result in pain, swelling, bruising and loss of function -Lovering, 2008). This means muscle tenderness or tension which is revealed upon examination by the doctor will allow us to incorporate clinical massage into your treatment. We believe that including massage therapy in with your Chiropractic treatment will greatly enhance your results.
Our licensed and fully credentialed professionals will deliver outstanding treatment leaving you feeling relaxed and recharged.
Our therapists will use a variety of styles to create a custom session just for you.
