This way we know and you know that you’re getting the best care for your body and experiencing as many benefits of massage therapy as possible. Some of these benefits may include both physical and mental health improvements, stimulated by our massage techniques and the relaxing nature of massage therapy.
Massage therapy targets your body’s muscular, circulatory, nervous, immune, and lymphatic systems, which means that the benefits of massage therapy are, theoretically, endless. Massage therapy is used to treat injuries, relieve joint pain in arthritis patients, relieve stress, release tension in nerves, treat headaches, and provide an overall sense of relaxation. In some cases, massage therapy is helpful in managing depression, stress, and anxiety when your mind and body simply need time to relax after a particularly difficult day. With different types of massages available, our massage therapists can look at your individual needs and symptoms and choose the best pain relief massage therapy to ease your body’s aches and pains, wherever they are, so that you can get on your way to living a healthier life.
Massage Therapy Services
If you’re looking for a natural pain relief treatment for physical or mental ailments, massage therapy could be exactly what you need, a natural alternative to medicinal solutions your doctor might prescribe. Some of our massages include:
Deep Tissue Massages – Intended for tension and stress relief, and chronic muscle pain, a deep tissue massage can benefit just about anyone in need of muscle pain relief. With the ability to decrease inflammation and relieve inflammation pain, a deep tissue massage can benefit even arthritis patients suffering from joint pains and stiff muscles surrounding their joints. Deep tissue massages are given using long, deep strokes, lengthening muscles and providing extensive pain relief.
Myofascial Release/Soft Tissue Massages – Soft tissue massages are achieved when a massage therapist focuses on massaging soft tissue, or fascia, in order to relieve muscle tension, reduce pain, and improve circulation. Soft tissues can become restricted and tense due to disease, overuse, inactivity, or trauma, making soft tissue massages a versatile treatment option.
Swedish Massages – A Swedish massage utilizes long strokes like a deep massage but gentler strokes over tight muscles. Swedish massages are not intended for deep pain relief but are instead meant to relax your body, focusing on mental tension and minor physical stresses. These massages are best for those who need a way to relax at the end of a stressful day or prepare their bodies for a stressful event, such as an operation.
Trigger Point Massages – Trigger point massages are more localized than deep tissue or Swedish massages, focusing on specific areas of your body. These pain relief massages can help locate sources of pain, eliminate tension in one area of your body that could be causing pain in another, and provide pain relief for your entire body with targeted massaging.
Prenatal Massages – For mothers in their second trimester or beyond, prenatal massages can ease discomfort and provide a welcome stress relief. Massage therapy can be especially beneficial for improving circulation, something that many pregnant women difficulties with.
Sports Massage – Sports injury pain relief, relieving muscle stiffness, preventing future sports injuries, and relieving sport-specific tension and bodily stresses can all be accomplished with a sports massage. Although sports massages are not a “type” of massage, they can include massage techniques such as deep tissue, trigger point, and Swedish massages, all of which can be helpful in achieving a different end. A deep tissue sports massage may be beneficial in providing pain relief for general sport-related pains and tension, and a trigger point massage may be used to target a specific injury, and a Swedish massage may be used to prepare an athlete for performance, loosening muscles that tense during athletic activities.
Our massage therapists will help you choose from our many massage therapy options listed above, and consider adding a hot stone massage or aroma therapy oils, used to control breathing, heart rate, and stress levels to ensure maximum relaxation.

“I have been a longtime patient at Caron Chiropractic. I get adjusted on regular basis and have done so for close to 8 years. I can’t remember the last time I have had a pain or have been sick. I used to have pain daily and was sick more than most people. I attribute this turn around to my care at Caron Chiropractic. Thanks Matt & Marty.”
