Massage Therapy


Massage Therapy at Transformation Chiropractic & Wellness Center

Massage therapy, often used with chiropractic care, includes a wide range of techniques given depending on your needs as well as your physical condition. Various types of massage therapy date back thousands of years, oftentimes appearing in ancient writings from Egypt, China, India and Japan. In general, a massage therapist works on the muscle and soft tissue in order to relieve pain and stress in order for you to feel better. Massage therapy is often done using essential oils as a form of aromatherapy. Some of the most common types of massage therapy include Swedish massage, which uses long, kneading strokes, vibration and deep circular movements, sports massage which combines the techniques of Swedish massage and deep tissue massage and Myofascial trigger point therapy, which focuses on trigger points that are associated with pain.
