Massage Therapy in Walnut Creek

Massage therapy is a perfect complement to chiropractic care. At Holmes Chiropractic, we strive to help every patient feel and be their best, and massage therapy is a powerful tool to help them do exactly that.

Patients who receive massage therapy in addition to their chiropractic adjustments tend to get better faster, experience less stress and anxiety, and feel better about themselves. Massage also helps your chiropractic adjustments last longer, because it helps the muscles supporting the joints relax and work as they should.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you recommend chiropractic and massage?

Yes, they both complement each other. While chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the spine and how it impacts the nervous system, massage focuses on the 650 muscles of the body. Both massage and chiropractic work in harmony to help keep the body properly aligned, balanced and functioning optimally.

What should I wear to the massage appointment?

We recommend you wear comfortable clothing. However, therapeutic massage is usually performed with the client undressed. Rest assured that you will be appropriately draped during your massage. While most people undress completely, some elect to leave some clothing on, such as underwear. You choose what level of comfort is right for you. Your massage therapist will respect your privacy at all times.

What will the massage feel like?

It depends on the techniques your therapist uses. Deep tissue massage or trigger point therapies use deeper pressure and more intensive techniques. The pressure should always be within your comfort level. If you would like to receive less or more pressure at any time, just let your therapist know.
