Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complementary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include: increase of blood circulation, localized reduction in swelling, or the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a person's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!
All massage therapy sessions are provided in a professional environment located in separate massage therapy suites at GRC. Our licensed massage therapists are highly skilled and personal modesty is respected at all times.

At Greater Rochester Chiropractic, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.

A practice that takes place seated or reclined, yin yoga is a subtle, but active practice that targets deep into the connective tissue linking muscles to bones and joints. Poses are held for several minutes, allowing the body to release tension and increase flexibility. This is followed by a relaxing and restorative practice involving poses completely supported by blocks, blankets, bolsters and straps.
Gentle movement through a series of postures that target specific regions of the body, Slow Flow promotes release, opening, strength and flexibility. Sequences will move through a series of gentle balances, bends, folds, and twists, while linking breath and movement together, in order to enhance circulation throughout the body.
Lifestyle advice and modifications
Many of our patients come to see our office to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While a chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients toward achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve—one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Workshops on spinal health and Back Schools teach how activities of daily living impact back and neck pain. Greater Rochester Chiropractic also offers more specific workshops on topics such as: back pain and pregnancy, reducing physical and emotional stress, proper lifting mechanics, and computer ergonomics, to the Rochester community. We feel that the more people we can educate about the benefits of chiropractic care, the greater the chance that they will choose us for their care. Contact us today at (585) 442-3220 to arrange a workshop at your event or workplace.
