MASSAGE THERAPY

The spine, soft tissue, and all supporting structures rely on each other to function properly, and often, all suffer as a result of injury. Using both chiropractic care and massage allows them all to be addressed and treated appropriately.

Tieszen Chiropractic & Massage’s Licensed Massage Therapists are able to provide over 20 different forms of massage to soothe pain, increase flexibility, treat chronic conditions and prepare a person for their best performance.
