Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of soft tissues(muscles, connective tissue and tendons) to improve a person’s health. In our office, Massage Therapist and Doctors of Chiropractic work together to help patient’s recover more quickly, with improved functional outcomes.
There are many types of massage therapy methods. Dr. Lavoie may refer you for Deep Tissue Massage therapy here in our office. This type of massage therapy focuses on deeper layers of muscles and fascia which breaks down adhesions which can block circulation and cause pain, inflammation and limit movement. Deep Tissue Massage Therapy relaxes muscles, rehabilitates injuries, reduces pain and improves normal movement.
