Swedish Massage is a manual therapy that emphasizes long strokes, kneading and friction motions to encourage proper circulation. The technique involves rubbing muscles together in the same direction as the flow of blood to the heart.

This technique combines the unique benefits of human touch with the power of essential oils to create an overall wellness experience. The essential oils used in the AromaTouch Technique were chosen for their individual and combined aromatic properties.

FAQ

How often should I come in for a massage?

The frequency depends on what the issue is. If you have an acute problem or a new problem, your therapist may want to see you once a week until you are feeling better.

If you come in with a specific problem, our therapists are here to get you better and your body working better. Then it’s up to you to determine whether you want to continue.

How do massage and chiropractic complement each other?

Getting a massage and a chiropractic adjustment on the same day allows the adjustment to be much more effective.

Does insurance cover massage?
