Massage therapy is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body through manual, hands on techniques. During a massage, a massage therapist will apply a fixed or moving pressure to the tissues to ease pain and tension in the muscles and joints of the body. Massage therapy can also improve blood and lymphatic flow throughout the body, enhance tissue healing, and affect the nervous system through stimulation or sedation. At Portola Valley Chiropractic we offer 30, 60, and 120 minute massages.
