Chiropractic is the art and science of evaluating and correcting subluxations (misalignments of the vertebrae of the spine causing nerve interference). The nervous system connects the brain to every system, muscle, organ, and tissue of the body. Every part of your body must have proper nerve supply in order for it to function properly. If there is interference to the nerve impulses to a particular area of the body, the result is stress and disease. If that interference remains long enough, it will eventually lead to disease.
Dr.Sicilia works to reduce or eliminate the disruption of nerve communication caused by subluxations thus increasing your body’s ability to heal.
Massage is one of the healthiest ways of releasing unwanted tension. Today’s world is filled with stress, which strongly affects our emotional and physical well-being. Scientific research supports the use of massage therapy as an effective approach in pain and injury management, rehabilitation and prevention. It has been found to be more effective in increasing blood flow than moderate exercise.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the fibers of the muscles, tendons and fascia.
The term “Swedish Massage” refers to a variety of techniques specifically designed to relax muscles by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones, and rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart.
Sports Massage is a special form of massage and is typically used before, during, and after athletic events. The purpose of the massage is to prepare the athlete for peak performance, to drain away fatigue, to relieve swelling, to reduce muscle tension, to promote flexibility and to prevent injuries.
