Massage Therapy Erie PA

Woman receiving massage therapyDid you know that massage therapy is an excellent complement to chiropractic care? Both Dr. Bannister and Dr. Coursen frequently recommend massage to their patients as it helps to loosen the muscles. “A lot of times a patient’s pain is coming from chronic tightness that they’ve had for years,” says Dr. Coursen.

A Tranquil Atmosphere

With salt lamps that promote relaxation and better breathing, and soothing music playing, you’ll know you’ve come to the right place to experience healing relief. We also feature an essential oils diffuser to foster relaxation. We put various oils in it, depending on a patient’s condition. For example, we can use eucalyptus and peppermint to open up the breathing passageways.

Some Benefits of Massage

While massage feels great, there are many other benefits associated with it:

  • Relieves pain
  • Decreases anxiety and depression
  • Promotes blood flow
  • Cleanses the lymphatic system (which boosts the immune system)
  • Diminishes tension and stress
