Massage Therapy at
Funk Chiropractic

While you may think of massage as a pampering spa treatment, it has many therapeutic benefits. Not only can massage alleviate pain, but it also promotes relaxation, improves circulation, elevates mood, increases range of motion, and more. Did you know that a one-hour massage is as beneficial as walking a mile?
Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissue. When people have soft tissue malfunctioning a massage therapist will seek to get their body and mind to relax, allowing for easier manipulation of that tissue.

Do I need to prepare in a certain way for my visit?

The only thing we recommend is that you drink plenty of water before your massage.

If you’re a first time client and you’ve never had a massage before we’ll consider what you need and what your body requires. Your therapist will ask you some questions about what you’ve come in for and what your main goal is.

Do I have to completely undress?

It’s up to you. You can choose to disrobe to your level of comfort. Some people elect to have all of their clothes off and others choose to leave some on. You always will be appropriately draped at all times. If you choose to wear clothing please wear something stretchy that will enable your therapist to manipulate tissue beyond the clothes.

How will you know what type of massage I need?

If you have a big knot or trigger point we will incorporate a lot more Swedish. If someone has considerable stiffness and doesn’t have the flexibility that they need we would give a Thai massage and shiatsu because both methods include a lot of stretching techniques.

How is massage therapy an important adjunct service to chiropractic?

At Funk Chiropractic, our massage therapy is an excellent complement to chiropractic care. Chiropractic manipulates joints to where healing takes place inside the joint and it increases blood flow. Massage therapy can help increase that blood flow to certain areas to incorporate more healing in that vicinity; plus, massage increases range of motion and relieves pain.

Do you recommend stretches I can do at home?

Yes, your massage therapist will recommend stretches that will enable you to move better.

How much is a massage session?

Each 60-minute session is $70-80.

Does insurance cover massage?

Often, it does. Our front desk can check to see if your insurance plan covers massage.
