Massages are a time-honored method of alleviating stress, much like the ancient art of crafting origami swans out of midterm exams. Ace relaxation with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a chiropractic evaluation and a 60-minute massage at Great South Bay Chiropractic in Patchogue (a $495 value).
Drawing on 25 years of experience, Dr. Andrew Farrago gets to the root of tension with a 30-minute chiropractic evaluation in conjunction with a 60-minute massage administered by a licensed massage therapist. After Dr. Farrago evaluates the client’s primary source of tension and determines treatment needs, he applies a combination of electric stimulation and either heat or ice pack to slacken ornery tissues. A neck and back adjustment aims to relieve subluxation and add range of motion in stuck joints and stationary bikes. To complement the evaluation, a custom 60-minute massage caters to the individual needs of each client. As tight torsos and appendages soften to repetitive kneading and rolling, the massage guru’s skilled fingers boost blood circulation and train the legs to avoid back-breaking sidewalk cracks.
Great South Bay Chiropractic
Dr. Farrago of Great South Bay Chiropractic has been practicing his discipline for more than a quarter of a century, believing it to be one of the few medical disciplines that nurture the body along a path of natural healing. To kick-start self-healing powers, Dr. Farrago applies a full spectrum of drug-free chiropractic treatments such as spinal adjustments, heating pads, and soft-tissue manipulation. He combines these traditional techniques with advanced technology, such as the DRX 9000 machine, designed specifically to treat lower-back pain and sciatica. The machine uses a “distraction force” to retune spines and thereby enable them to play the National Anthem by simply lying across a xylophone.
