Massage Therapy

Therapeutic massage involves manipulation of the soft tissue structures of the body to prevent and alleviate pain, discomfort, muscle spasm, and stress. It also improves functioning of the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems and may improve the rate at which the body recovers from injuries and illness.

Massage comes in many forms, including:

  • Swedish – a gentle, relaxing massage
  • Deep Tissue – a deep massage focused on pain relief
  • Orthopedic – an injury specific deep tissue massage focused on preventing, or recovering from, surgery
  • Sports massage focuses on muscle groups relevant to a particular sport.
  • Trigger Point Therapy – a targeted pressure point massage used for specific injuries and pain patterns

Massage Therapy is Making a Difference for our Patients

  • If I could rate this practice with more than five stars, I’d give them a 10! Dr. Mahoney is simply the best. Thru a combination of adjustments and massage therapy (with a shout out here to Laura the massage therapist) I was able to nearly eliminate a KNEE problem I was having —that I was told by several other doctors would require a knee replacement to fix. Everyone in the front office is super helpful and nice, as well! I highly recommend this practice!

  • I am grateful for the caring and understanding staff who were able to help me. I appreciate that the pain can be relieved by treatment and exercise rather than medications. Very impressed and would recommend to others. My only regret is that I put off trying chiropractic and massage therapy for so long.
