Massage & Myofascial Work
Suffering from Neck or Back Pain? Are your Muscles Sore? Feeling Stressed?
At Progressive Chiropractic Wellness Center, we pride ourselves in delivering quality chiropractic care, as well as seriously effective, clinical myofascial bodywork and medical massage in Lincoln Park & Lakeview, Chicago. Unlike some spas and massage centers, Progressive Chiropractic employs licensed massage therapists with extensive experience, who are highly trained in therapeutic massage techniques including: deep tissue, neuromuscular, myofascial, trigger point therapy, cupping, Asian bodywork, and many others.
The medical massage that we provide is a highly therapeutic massage which is intended to not only provide relaxation and improved mental state, but will also involve the use of advanced techniques to target specific muscles to alleviate acute or chronic pain. Our sports massages are also great way to prepare your body for important athletic events & competitions or for enhanced recovery afterwards.
Most of our patients choose to have a therapeutic massage, but you may also choose a more relaxing option. A relaxation massage is a rather straightforward session using classic Swedish massage techniques. The massage therapist will utilize techniques of applying light to medium pressure dependent upon your preference. The purpose of the massage is simply to help you to relieve muscle tension and create an overall feeling of relaxation and improved mental state. At Progressive Chiropractic we have a team of Licensed Massage Therapists who are trained in the practice of both therapeutic massage and relaxation massage.
