Massage Therapy

Massage on backMassage therapy is the manual manipulation of the soft tissues of the body including muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue. Massage therapy can be given with hands, fingers, elbows and forearms. Our massage therapists may even use devices and may implement therapies such as cupping.

Who Can Benefit?

Anyone who wants to recover from injuries, feel better or relieve stress will benefit from massage therapy. Our clients say they have noticed the following:

  • Reduced pain
  • Improved circulation
  • Less muscle tension and spasms
  • Decreased anxiety
  • Improved quality of life

Our massage therapists at Ritchie Chiropractic & Integrative Medicine work with people of all ages and are proficient in helping women ease pain and muscle tension through pregnancy.


Our massage therapists employ a variety of massage techniques. The focus at our clinic is on therapeutic massage, meaning helping to alleviate health problems and promote healing. We primarily use various deep tissue massage and trigger point techniques. These types of massage methods may use slow, deep friction and pressure to reach the deepest parts of the muscle to address chronically tight muscles or spasms.

Massage clients will discuss their concerns with one of our therapists before their first massage. Clients should consider their overall health and what they would like to focus on during their care. It’s important to be open and honest with your massage therapist so they can help you.

Our massage therapists are highly trained in advanced therapeutic massage techniques. Our massage therapists work closely with Dr. Ritchie to address specific neuromuscular conditions as part of a patient’s treatment plan. We are focused on helping people recover from injuries and chronic pain. It is very common for our chiropractors and massage therapists to coordinate care to help someone recover from pain and injury much quicker than they might at another office or with other techniques.
