It can accelerate your recovery from injuries and accidents, provide quick pain relief, and even improve mobility and circulation throughout the body.
At our Denver chiropractic office, chiropractic therapy is just the beginning. Keep reading to learn more about how our licensed massage therapy can alleviate pain, help in reducing stress, and improve the overall quality of your health.
Goals and Benefits of Massage Therapy
Massage therapy for recovery is geared to provide pain relief, improved circulation, faster recovery of soft tissue injuries, and an overall decreased recovery time. Studies show that when you add massage therapy alongside physical therapy and chiropractic care, your muscles can better regulate the inflammation that follows injury or intense exercise.
We now offer massage for relaxation and overall health and wellness. Massage therapy can help you to recover from a challenging workout or unwind from a stressful week.
Our experienced massage therapist has a wide range of techniques that will help you feel rejuvenated and ready to take on your next adventure. With our competitive pricing and unmatched experience and level of care, you’ll wonder why you waited so long to receive the best massage therapy in Denver.

Massage Types and Techniques:
This type of therapeutic massage is a gentle full-body massage and is best fit for people who are sensitive to touch, new to massage, or who are experiencing a lot of tension throughout the body.
Deep Tissue Massage
With this type of massage technique, the massage therapist will apply sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury, such as a car accident or sports injury, and reduce muscle tension. This is best for people who experience a great deal of muscle tension or have chronic pain.
Athletic Recovery Massage
This specialized type of massage combines the benefits of deep-tissue, sports massage, and stretching to enhance athletic performance and muscle recovery. This is best for people who exercise frequently, and as a result, experience muscle soreness or fatigue.
Trigger Point Relief Massage
This type of massage addresses highly irritated points in muscles which send pain to other parts of the body. Licensed massage therapists are trained to identify specific trigger points and utilize various massage therapy techniques to provide pain relief and help you relax.
Nerve pain is caused by pressure on a nerve by soft tissue, cartilage or bone. With professional massage therapy, these areas can be addressed and the entrapment or compression on the nerve can begin to release, providing quick pain relief.
The body’s alignment can become imbalanced due to posture, which over time, causes discomfort or pain. Through massage therapy, we will begin to work with the tissue to find realignment in hopes of reducing pain. Physical therapy and chiropractic care in addition to massage is the best long-term pain relief plan.
Improve Blood Circulation
A health condition called ischemia is caused by a lack of blood supply to soft tissues which is related to hypersensitivity to touch. A massage therapist can help to increase blood circulation in connective tissue to address this discomfort.
