At Northside Chiropractic, Doctors of Chiropractic, Rook Torres, Mick Tiegs, and Kevin Davis not only tackle chronic pain and problems, but help clients maintain a high quality of life and wellness with regular chiropractic care. To support this care, they recognize the importance of massage to treat pain and restore range of motion.

Massage isn’t designed just to relieve tension, but also to heal. With this in mind, the massage therapists here use a range of modalities, from the overall soothing Swedish massage to a super-targeted trigger-point session that keeps clients coming back for more.
“Wonderful massage- wow! Just the right pressure and worked out some really tight muscles. Highly knowledgeable massage therapist, I would definitely recommend.” – Erin W.
“Heather gave me the best massage I have ever had. I feel so much better!” – Sandra W.
“Heather got into places I didn't know needed help. Best massage ever and I have had quite a few. She also takes the time to educate on stretches/specific water volume, etc after the massage. I shall definitely return.” – Mary A.
Co-owners and licensed massage therapists Amber and Kaci operate Barefoot Bodywork with one goal: to promote healing and wellness through massage in a peaceful environment.

If you’ve never had a couples massage, you probably have questions. We, fortunately, have the answers.
Put simply, two people—for example, a romantic couple, best friends, or siblings—go in for a massage session in the same room, side-by-side, each with their own therapist.
Some spas include access to other amenities, such as the sauna, pool, or lounge. Other couples massage packages include champagne, for example. It’s always good to get there early, just so you don’t feel rushed.
Nope. Feel free to ask your therapist to focus on your most tender spots. If you want a soothing Swedish and your partner wants a more-intense deep-tissue, that’s perfectly fine.
If you really want to, but it’s easier to relax when you’re not trying to chat with each other.
While most relaxation massages release tension with light to medium pressure, Massage Addiction’s therapists amp them up with acupressure, hot stones, moist heat, and other add-ons. Similarly, a deep-tissue massage integrates several modalities—including neuromuscular therapy and shiatsu pressure—into one session, while athletes find relief during sports massages. Suffice it to say, these therapists have the skills to confront just about any type of muscle pain.
“Brittany was great! Amazing technique very professional. I felt so much better. I will definitely be going back.” – Rhea L.
“Paula was amazing! 10/10 would see her again.” – Alexandria
“I loved the essential oils, hot stones, and thorough technique. This was probably the best, most comfortable massage I've had. I highly recommend it!” – Julie C.
For those of you who want to make massage a regular part of your self-care routine, it would help to know what the difference is between all those massage modalities. Here we take a look at the two most popular so you can determine which is right for you.
The goal of this type of massage is simple: relaxation.
The strokes: Mostly gentle and geared toward easing shallow muscle tension

Best for: Those new to massage, those who want to relax, those who don’t like pain
This modality targets deep-seated pain and tension.
The strokes: Intense kneading that can cause “good” pain
The benefits: Release of chronic tension deep within muscles
