Massage Therapy in Tigard
Experience much needed relief with massage therapy.
Therapeutic Massage Services
Professional chiropractic treatments target your injury & help you reach your goals.
Massage therapy facilitates your recovery from injury, illness, stress, and other ailments. Releasing tension, relaxing muscles, and engaging in hands-on care can benefit anyone. We use massage therapy in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments to give you the best chance for success on your journey to recovery.
Patients that take advantage of massage therapy alongside their chiropractic treatments experience better recovery results. Massage helps relax muscles that tense in response to the primary injury. Massage also gives your mind and body the stress relief needed for effective rehabilitation.
Combining massage therapy with chiropractic is a great way to experience much needed relief from mental, emotional, and psychological stress. Massage helps lower heart rate, lower blood pressure, and regulate hormones such as cortisol, epinephrine, and norepinephrine.
Massage therapy is especially effective for low back pain and neck pain relief. Patients with low back and neck pain may try prescription pain medications to regulate and reduce pain. However, prescriptions are typically not long-term solutions and usually cover up the problem rather than address it directly.
Multiple Therapies Give You the Best Chance of a Full Recovery
Our practitioners at Tigard Chiropractic & Auto Injury work with professional massage therapists to help facilitate your healing and recovery. Your treatment may occasionally incorporate massage sessions from a licensed massage therapist so you have the best chance of long-lasting recovery.
When you work with our team, your chiropractor will work on your joints and alignment, while your massage therapist focuses on your muscles. Both therapies are non-invasive and holistic, making them the perfect companions for drug-free pain management.
Massage + Chiropractic: The Key to Holistic & Effective Recovery
The benefits of massage therapy, especially when pursued alongside chiropractic, are endless. Stress-relief is often the first benefit that comes to mind. In addition to stress reduction, massage therapy prepares your body to get the most out of your chiropractic treatments.
Benefits of Massage Therapy Include:
1 – Easier Chiropractic Adjustments
The more relaxed your muscles are, the more effective your chiropractic adjustments will be. Massage helps prepare your muscles for chiropractic care, leading to more positive outcomes.
2 – Improved Range of Motion
Stiff muscles, along with sore or tender joints, can dramatically decrease your range of motion. Massage helps decrease muscle tension, allowing your joints to move more freely.
3 – Improved Circulation
Massage helps improve blood flow by warming up soft tissues. If your muscles are nice and warm, you experience better elasticity and function. Better circulation and blood flow helps you relax and accelerates your body’s natural healing mechanisms.
4 – Smoother, Faster Recovery
Massage, combined with chiropractic care, is the best way to recover quickly from injury or ailments. One or the other simply doesn’t have the same impact on its own as a combination of the two therapies.
5 – Increased Wellbeing & Quality of Life
Massage decreases pain, helps your entire body relax, and ultimately provides stress-reduction and anxiety relief. The stress you carry in your body from daily life or in response to your primary injury subsides with professional massage therapy.

We Use Multiple Massage Techniques to Help You Recover
There are several different types of massage that are used by professionals. When it comes to pain management and healing, we focus on using common yet effective massage techniques that complement your chiropractic treatments.
Your chiropractor may recommend one or more of the following massage types described below as part of your treatment plan.
Types of Massage:
Deep Tissue Massage
Slow, deliberate strokes are the hallmark of deep tissue massages. This technique targets the deeper layers of your muscles and their connective tissues. Deep tissue massages are great for pain management, blood flow circulation, and breaking down scar tissue.
Myofascial massage focuses on the myofascial tissues in the body. These tissues are the membranes that wrap around, support, and connect your muscles. Restricted muscles loosen up when a massage therapist applies light pressure to these areas.
Trigger-point therapy is also known as neuromuscular massage. With this type of massage, a therapist uses their fingers, knuckles, and elbows to apply direct pressure on tender, tight, or painful muscles. Trigger-point therapy is especially helpful for chronic pain relief, circulation improvement, fatigue reduction, and endurance improvement.
Swedish massage is one of the most common massage techniques. It incorporates the use of gentle and long strokes, circular motions, kneading, and tapping.
Sports massages are great for athletes. Those who regularly engage in running, biking, recreational sports, and other sporting activities can overstress their muscles and joints. Massage helps promote recovery, flexibility, endurance, and prevent recurring injury.
Multiple Modalities to Give You the Best Chance of a Pain-Free Life
At Tigard Chiropractic & Auto Injury, we find that a combination of massage therapy and chiropractic treatment offers the best route to recovery. We also incorporate education on nutrition, lifestyle changes, posture, and other daily living activities.
Healing and wellness should focus on the individual as a whole. We understand that a wide range of factors and influences impact your pain level and road to recovery. Our experts work with you to find the perfect balance of treatments so you can start living life the way you deserve.
