Attention Gilbert, Arizona residents - we welcome you to Islands Chiropractic and Massage for an opportunity to improve your life. Our Gilbert chiropractor knows the importance of keeping a body in balance and Dr. Daniel Carlow encourages you to combine chiropractic care with massage therapy.
Massage therapy goes beyond reducing stress and enhancing your relaxation, the gentle yet effective massage also improves your well-being. As our massage therapist helps to loosen muscles that are overly tight or have scar tissue, you begin to accept chiropractic adjustments easier. For example, if the muscles across your lower back are too tight from years of incorrect posture, our massage therapist can loosen this area. When Dr. Carlow makes a spinal adjustment, the muscles are more likely to accept the new position and are there to support a strong posture. When you opt to partner massage therapy with chiropractic care, our wellness team will improve the physical state of your entire body. We are here to work through back pain, shoulder pain, headaches, hip discomfort and more. If you are suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome, our chiropractor will position your wrists and our massage therapist will relax the muscles in your forearms to reduce your pain. We are excited to offer these two services together to provide relief. However, we welcome you to visit our massage therapist even if you are not currently under our chiropractic health care.
Our massage therapist is here for you. We provide the best type of massage for your conditions, your mental state and your healthy progress.
If you enjoy the benefits of deep tissue massage that reaches into the depths of the muscle tissue, we are ready to take care of you. You will enjoy a reduction in inflammation, discomfort and a break up of scar tissue at this level.
We also enjoy providing pre-natal massages for expectant mothers. This massage therapy helps to improve circulation, reduce lower back discomfort and can also alleviate swelling in the hands and feet.
A Swedish massage is one of the most common types of overall massage therapy. We use our hands-on technique to care for all of your muscles for relaxation and health-boosting benefits. As we perform the massage, we will ask you if the amount of pressure is comfortable and make adjustments according to your needs.
If you are an athlete or physically active person, our sport massages are for you. We use our skills to focus on areas that are uncomfortable due to overuse movements or injuries. Our massage therapy sessions also help to prepare you for activities by increasing your range of motion, reducing inflammation and re-positioning your joints to avoid injuries.
We are passionate about the way massage therapy enhances your well-being. If you are considering massage for the first time, talk to us about the benefits of this affordable, alternative health care service. Call us today at (480) 545-4580.
