Massage Therapy at
Linford Chiropractic

Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues of the body. The purpose is to normalize the tissues with manual techniques that include applying pressure, holding, and causing movements of the body. Massage increases the circulation of blood and the flow of lymph. This reduces muscular tension and affects the nervous system through stimulation and relaxation causing the tissue to heal. Our therapists offer the highest quality of care to our clients and care about all aspects of their treatment.

We customize each session to meet your specific needs by incorporating a variety of assessment and treatment techniques that are best suited to you as an individual.

Therapeutic Massage

This massage focuses on manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques to enhance function, aid in the healing process, decrease muscle reflex activity, inhibit motor-neuron excitability and promote relaxation and well-being.


This massage will encourage better digestion, improve circulation, calming the nervous system and moving fluid through your lymphatic nervous system to promote detoxification. Relaxation massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissue of lactic acid, uric acid and other metabolic wastes.

Prenatal massage has been found to reduce stress, decrease swelling, and relieve aches and pains in the muscles and joints.

Sports Massage

Babies massage is used to promote social-emotional-cognitive and physical development.

RAPID Neurofascial Reset

RAPID Neurofascial Reset, is a new soft tissue movement technique that addresses the central nervous systems role in alleviating pain, tension and restriction within muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, scar tissue and nerves.
RAPID is very different from traditional massage techniques, as the patient stays clothed and no oil is used.

Your Massage Therapist will be using very precise movement and pressure on the patient as they are either standing, sitting or laying down. Evidence shows that this new modality is great for treating issues such as tension headaches/migraines, frozen shoulder, bicep tendinitis, old shoulder injuries, nerve impingement, poor range of motion in joints, TMJ, and more.

Jade Stone Massage therapy

Jade stone is a semi-precious stone that has been used for massage for thousands of years. Jade has been known to relax the nervous system, and aid in the removal of toxins.

Each Jade stone is mined, cut, shaped, and polished. It can take an artist many hours to properly shape and polish one stone for massage. Jade stone is very smooth and non porous. They can be heated or cooled and are placed on or under the body as well as used directly for massage. When using stones, the therapist can work deep into the muscle tissue to release muscle tension and localized pain without any discomfort. Chilled stones provide just as powerful of a massage as heated stones. When used together, it can create a vascular flush increasing blood flow and removal of toxins.

Benefits of Jade Stone Massage include:

  • Increased Circulation
  • Provide treatment similar to hydrotherapy
  • Balance the body
  • Flush internal organs and systems
  • Improve Vitality
  • Improves sleep and overall sense of well being
  • Relieve Back pain, Sciatica, and Deep Muscle Tissue pain
