The word “chiropractic” comes from ancient Greek and means “done by hand.”Adjustment of the joints of the body has been used in health care for many centuries and is at the heart of modern chiropractic care.Chiropractors are specialists in manual adjustment of the vertebrae of the spine and other joints. Adjustment helps relieve pain and restore normal functioning to the spine, joints and supporting structures of the body – so you can enjoy your everyday activities again as quickly as possible.Chiropractors are also trained to prescribe therapeutic exercise, provide nutritional counselling, and recommend rehabilitation and injury prevention strategies.

Massage therapy is a comprehensive intervention involving a range of techniques to manipulate the soft tissues and joints of the body. The purpose of massage therapy is to prevent, develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function or relieve pain (Massage Therapy Act, 1991). It is a clinically-oriented health option that achieves undeniable results in the relief of an array of discomforts stemming from stress, muscular overuse and many chronic pain syndromes.
Massage is best known for reducing stress and muscle tension. Not only does it feel wonderful but it can assist in controlling hypertension, decreasing tension headaches, improving blood circulation, digestive problems and sleeping patterns. A major component of massage is decreasing injury recovery time. By providing the client with a well designed treatment plan, the massage therapist can decrease pain levels, reduce swelling and stiffness, prevent tissue adhering and restore strength and range of motion.
