If you’re like many people, you might have some reservations about massage therapy. At Champion Chiropractic, we do all we can to ensure your comfort and to ease any concerns you might have.
What happens during a one-hour massage?
The massage will take place in a warm, comfortable room. You will be clothed to the extent that you are comfortable, with drapes provided. As you lie on a table that is designed for comfort and relaxation, the massage therapist will work on an area at a time, keeping other areas covered. A one-hour massage is a full-body massage including your neck, shoulders, back, legs, and feet.
