BENEFITS OF MASSAGE

Our quality therapeutic massage focuses on muscle relaxation targeting superficial muscles and includes blood circulation techniques that help problematic areas of the body such as sciatica, lower back pain and discomfort, and plantar fasciitis.
 

Massage is more than a one-time indulgence or a reward for a tough week. Regular massage truly enhances your everyday life, smoothing out the rough spots, helping you be your best and making it easier to deal with life's curve balls. Here are some ways massage can help:
 

Pain Management: If you have a condition such as sciatica, osteoarthritis, plantar fasciitis, lower back pain or tightness, Swedish massage can be a natural alternative method for managing pain .
 

Improve Recovery: Massage can help you in your recovery from muscle injuries and improve muscle and joint flexibility.
 

Reduce Stress: Massage is excellent for helping reduce stress and maximizing relaxation including reducing or eliminating tension headaches, neck, shoulder or lower back stiffness where tension is often stored.


TYPES OF MASSAGE OFFERED

There is no additional fee for a specific massage. With Mike's guidance, you select the massage that will most benefit you.
 

Connective Tissue Therapy: This technique is used to manipulate fascia (tissue surrounding muscle) to effectively promote relaxation, vitality and increase awareness. It can be of benefit to almost anyone as it can relieve chronic tension, improve posture and relieve painful symptoms of chronic diseases such as arthritis, tendinitis, TMJ and sciatica.
 

Trigger Point Therapy: Working on pinpointing precise locations on your body causing pain, referred to as "trigger points", this technique helps to resolve the problem at the source. Trigger point therapy is often the ideal treatment whether you have pain from a sporting injury, an auto accident or bad posture.
 

Traditional Swedish Massage: Recognized as the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. It is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
 

Reflexology & Lower Leg Massage: Using pressure points located in each foot that correspond directly to specific organs of the body, reflexology can improve nerve function, raise energy levels and increase circulation. This treatment includes a lower leg massage to help ease away tension.
 

Head & Neck Massage: The benefits of head and neck massage include release of muscle tension in the neck and shoulders but it is also helpful for those who suffer from tension headaches, eye strain, migraines, sinusitis and chronic neck pain.
 

Hydrotherapy: Using heat and ice to increase blood circulation, hydrotherapy aides circulation of the immune system's white blood cells, reduces inflammation, heals injured tissue, helps with the removal of waste products, improves well-being and energizes the body. For injuries, alternating applications of heat and cold accelerates healing by improving blood vessel integrity and muscle tone. Heat causes peripheral (surface) blood vessels to dilate or expand. Cold causes peripheral blood vessels to constrict and drives blood back to the organs. This treatment is combined with a soothing Swedish massage.
 

Sport Massage: As an important part of sports training and the recovery process, various techniques are used to relieve muscle soreness, stimulate circulation and increase flexibility.
 

Medical Massage: Specific musculoskeletal pathologies can be addressed by integrating a variety of modalities. These pathologies are: carpal tunnel syndrome, frozen shoulder, golfer's elbow, herniated/bulging disc, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff tear, sciatica, shin splints, strains/sprains, tendinitis, tennis elbow, thoracic outlet syndrome, TMJ disorder and whiplash.
 

Aroma Massage: Taking your massage experience to another level by using a blend of essential oils can be incorporated into your massage at a minimal cost.

No-Fault Massage in New York State (Automobile Accidents)
 

New York State is known for its severe weather conditions, traffic and construction.  Under New York State law, if you are involved in an automobile accident, no matter who is at fault, you are entitled to receive medical care for your injuries.  The medical expenses for your care are covered by the insurance carrier of the vehicle you were in at the time of the accident.  
 

If you feel any pain from an automobile accident, you should seek immediate medical care.  There are many options, even if you do not go to the emergency room.  Automobile accidents, even at reduced speeds, can significantly impact your body, including your muscles and connective tissue.  Without treatment, these injuries can lead to chronic inflammation and pain.  Chiropractic Care, in conjunction with Therapeutic Massage, can be especially beneficial in healing these injuries and alleviating pain.  
 

Under New York State No Fault Insurance, there is no out-of-pocket expense for you.  At Align Chiropractic & Massage, we bill the insurance company directly on your behalf.

Nutrition Consultation


WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM BOOKING A NUTRITION CONSULTATION?

Whether you need a complete diet overhaul with my 12-week nutrition program or are looking to manage a medical condition or want to fine-tune your food choices or get inspiration for new, healthy recipes, a nutritional consultation can be for you.
My recommendation is to book your appointment after you have received a check up with your primary care provider. I will need to see your most current blood profiles. (within 6 months) This can help inform me whether you have any specific conditions that can be addressed with nutrition such as, elevated blood sugar, high cholesterol or blood pressure issues.
While some clients I see come in for a nutrition consultation to learn more about how their food choices affect their health, others end up in my office at their doctor's suggestion. The following are just a few of the conditions that can improve specifically from dietary interventions:
•Heart disease
•High blood pressure
•High cholesterol
•Allergies
•Diabetes and pre-diabetic conditions
•Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
•Celiac disease
•Obesity or overweight
•Pregnancy

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR FIRST CONSULTATION

In my consultations I ask about your goals. I will review your medical history, including any medications and supplements you're currently taking. Then I will dive into your lifestyle to get a sense of your stress levels, sleep patterns, energy levels, exercise and gastrointestinal function. I always recommend that you write down everything you eat and drink for 5 days prior to your appointment.
With that guidance, I can begin to discuss your dietary preferences and cooking habits and identify trouble spots, like skipping breakfast or late-night snacking. From there, I'll develop some initial recommendations to help you start eating healthier.

HOW MANY APPOINTMENTS WILL I NEED?

Most clients come in for two to three sessions. If you're ready to learn and incorporate some simple changes into your diet and lifestyle, that's often enough to set you on the right course. But some people like the accountability of setting up monthly consults until they feel in control of - and comfortable with - their new habits. It's not unusual for clients to transition into my 12-week nutrition program.

HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?

The initial consultation cost is $125 - a one hour minimum. Monthly consultations thereafter are $60 per visit - a one hour minimum.
Nutrition counseling can be a very cost-effective investment in your long-term health. If better nutrition enables you to lower your blood pressure or cholesterol or get your weight in check, it can potentially save you thousands of dollars in medications and other care down the road.

Exercise & Fitness Consultations


WHAT IS AN EXERCISE & FITNESS CONSULTATION?

An Exercise & Fitness Consultation is an individualized, one on one appointments designed to evaluate your current situation and create a comprehensive program to improve mobility and fitness based on your specific health condition. I will take you through an array of muscle testing to determine range of motion to help create a comprehensive program specific to your needs. Part of my evaluation process incorporates guidelines use from the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the American Heart Association (AHA) providing a basis for your prescribed exercise program.



WHAT TAKES PLACE DURING AN EXERCISE & FITNESS CONSULTATION?
