Massage Therapy | Placitas, NM
While Chiropractic focuses on joints and mobility, Massage focuses on the soft tissues of the body and movement patterns. Doctor Smith uses a wide variety of massage techniques based on the patient’s symptoms, body type, and tolerance to pressure.
Massage can help to reduce muscle tightness, break-up scar tissue, reduce pain and inflammation, improve circulation, and improve one’s overall state of health. We lean toward the more intense massage modalities which explore deep muscle fibers and have more of a therapeutic effect.
Everyone’s preference for massage style is different, and finding the right therapist can be a challenge. Dr. Smith is very strong. However, he can also be very gentle when it is appropriate. It is not uncommon to be sore for several days following a massage session.
