We offer therapeutic massage treatment at our clinic Monday through Friday, with Melissa Tillman, LMT. Massage therapy is a hands-on approach to health and wellness that manipulates the muscles and other soft tissues in the body. Our therapist is trained in many types of massage in order to provide the most benefit for our patients. She has over 20 years of massage experience and taught massage for many years.
Therapeutic massage is soothing, relaxing, and nurturing to help decrease muscle hypertension, relieve stress and promote increased blood flow. Reflexology massage is when the reflex points on the foot are subjected to gentle pressure. Each of these points is connected to a specific part of the body and is used to reduce stress and ailments. Prenatal massage is used to reduce the pain and discomfort in the muscles of the body associated with being pregnant.
Melissa is also trained to provide cupping as an additional massage service. Cupping is a form of massage therapy which decompresses soft tissue using vacuum suction. During cupping, the cup gently sucks to your skin and lifts underlying soft tissue into the cup. It is beneficial in many ways including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
All of the above massage techniques are great in combination with chiropractic care to help promote healing and improve your overall health and well being!
