Massage Therapy in Peoria

relaxing massage roomMany people view massage therapy as a spa-like treatment but massage therapy can also promote your ongoing wellness. “Enhanced blood flow, organ function, and fluid drainage can help you enjoy a stronger immune system response, while relaxed muscles are less prone to injury,” said Dr. Kelch.

An Ideal Complement to Chiropractic

Massage is used in conjunction with chiropractic care, so we can get a better adjustment because the muscles are loosened up and lactic acid is flushed out of the muscle tissue. Massage also helps accelerate the healing process.

The skillful combination of chiropractic adjustment and therapeutic massage techniques can help you combat pain without drugs, increase your range of motion, and enjoy a higher overall standard of health.

Who Can Benefit From Massage?

Just about everyone! We have patients ranging from 15 years old, all the way up to those in their 70s and 80s. Massage is also ideal for people with mobility issues and muscle tightness.

Dr. Kelch may prescribe massage therapy to address problems such as

  • Acute sprains and strains
  • Arthritis inflammation
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome/repetitive motion injuries
  • Chronic headaches
  • Circulatory disorders
  • Mood disorders
  • Neck or back pain
  • Prenatal discomfort
  • Sleep problems

Multiple Therapists & Many Techniques

We feature many massage approaches in our practice. Although our therapists primarily do deep tissue massage to work the muscle tissue, other methods are available, including cupping. One of our therapists is a licensed medical massage therapist. As we have three different massage therapists, they each have their own techniques and twists that they can give to the massage.

That way patients can experience what they like in the massage and choose a different massage therapist that’s available. For example, if you prefer a firmer touch, we have a massage therapist that can provide that approach. On the other hand, if you’re seeking a lighter-touch massage, a different therapist can provide that.

Frequently Asked Questions

How should I prepare for my massage?

It’s a good idea to drink a lot of water beforehand, which will flush out lactic acid.

Do I need to undress completely for my massage?

No, you will be appropriately draped at all times. Only the body part being addressed will be exposed during the massage.
