Like house parties, massages give people an excuse to forget about everyday stresses and fall asleep on someone else's table. Attend a fettle-ready fiesta with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a consultation, exam, and a 30-minute, doctor-directed Active Release Technique massage at Dowell Chiropractic in Christiansburg (up to a $258 value).
At Dowell Chiropractic, Dr. Steven Dowell kneads out soft-tissue injuries of all sizes and types using Active Release Techniques (ART), ultrasound, and electric currents. At the beginning of each visit, Dr. Dowell scours bodies for any soft-tissue problems through motion examinations and orthopedic testing. After uncovering maladies, the treatment begins with electrical muscle stimulation and a softly sung lullaby to send soothing currents into problem areas. A 30-minute session of ART massage follows, drawing on more than 500 specific movements, myofascial-release techniques, and gentle pressure to isolate and relieve each patient's individual soft-tissue troubles. On particularly problematic areas, Dr. Dowell draws on the sonic power of an ultrasound to break up scar tissue, improving mobility, range of motion, and the ability to pole-vault through third-story windows.
