Massage Therapy



Massage Therapy is the assessment, planned treatment and manipulation of soft tissue and joints of the body to assist the body’s efforts to heal, relieve pain and promote health.

 

Extensive research studies have been published in peer-reviewed journals proving the efficacy of massage therapy for various conditions. 

 

Massage therapists are not only trained in “hands on” therapy but also in rehabilitative care such as hydrotherapy, stretching, strengthening, and postural exercises.

 

Massage therapy can also be used as a component of a preventative care program.

 

Massage therapist’s at Riverview Chiropractic work collaboratively with each other and with the Chiropractor, Dr. Peter Shipka B.Sc, D.C., to provide an effective multimodality care program customized to your individual needs for optimal results.
