SPINAL MANIPULATION THERAPY
When joints in the spine, or anywhere else in the body are restricted and not moving efficiently, a chiropractic adjustment can be delivered to increase motion at that specific joint, subsequently decreasing pain. Mobilizations, are a gentle technique and may also be implemented with care.
REGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPY
Massage therapy consists of hands-on treatment of the soft tissues of the body, specifically the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints. Treatment has a therapeutic effect on the body and optimizes health and well-being by acting on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. In addition, pain and stress can be relieved or prevented.

This modality is used to regenerate and/or accelerate the healing process of soft tissue injuries.
