Get a tailored massage session based on your needs.

Our licensed massage therapist, Kristen, is trained in Swedish, deep tissue and sports massage techniques.  Your massage session will be designed especially for you based on the information gathered during the intake.  In addition, if you are currently a chiropractic patient of Dr. Grenon or Dr. Ruddy, they may have already discussed your needs with Kristen even before the massage appointment.  This way, Kristen can use a combination of techniques to best suit your needs and desired outcomes.  By using different strokes, pressure and skills the massage therapist will be able to adequately address your personal needs.  She will gauge this throughout the massage and utilize her knowledge to best assess the areas of pain and tightness.  By working together and providing feedback to the Kristen, you can both create a therapeutic and beneficial massage experience.

 

Your First Massage—what to expect.

Even if you are already a chiropractic patient in our office, you will need to fill out a brief medical history form which Kristen will review and discuss with you.  These general questions will help to establish if any medical conditions are present, what areas you would like to focus on during the session, your expectations for the massage session, and how you would like to feel afterwards.  Kristen will explain what will take place during your massage and answer any questions that you may have.  Finally, it is time to relax and enjoy your massage!
