Licensed chiropractor David deBarros helps straighten spines and relieve nerve pressure, working alongside licensed message therapists who target pain and tension with one of eight massage styles, including Swedish, deep tissue, and hot stone. The 45-minute consultation and exam take stock of any chiropractic, orthopedic, and neurological issues in the body, and x-rays point out any misaligned vertebrae that create pain and off-balance chicken dances. Patients return a second time to discuss test results and receive their chosen massage.
A licensed massage therapist releases pent-up stress into the wild through a number of techniques, such as the neuromuscular therapy and joint mobilization found in the medical massage. Deep-tissue massages disentangle muscle knots using firm, stroking movements and cat-burglar-like dexterity, and hot-stone therapy melts away stress and stiffness with warm stones. While Swedish massage uses gentle kneads to relax weary bodies, myofascial release pairs gentle kneading with strokes that stretch and lengthen muscle tissue when held for two minutes, or the approximate duration of the perfect speed date.
