Massage Therapy is the manual manipulation of soft tissues and joints. It includes active and passive techniques, hydrotherapy and therapeutic exercises which all help to rehabilitate musculoskeletal dysfunctions. It acts directly upon the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems to rehabilitate physical injuries and improve health. Massage therapy is also remarkably effective when used as part of a preventive care program.
Chiropractic care is a health discipline and profession that emphasizes the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system; especially the spine and nervous system.
