Therapeutic massage is essential for complete recovery from an injury. Odenton Chiropractic prides itself in the effective treatment of whiplash, work and sports injuries, and chronic physical complaints. Our care is personalized to each stage and severity of an injury. Massage decreases pain and spasm, promotes healing, and restores function.
Massage is relaxing and healthy. Massage sedates the nervous system and counteracts the body's response to stress, relaxing muscle tension and allowing heart rate, blood pressure, and circulation to normalize. It also restores a calm mind and feeling of well being.
Massage is affordable and makes a great gift. Gift certificates are available and make a great gift for all occasions. On-site massage therapy is also available for your workplace, office, or special event.
