Carlisle Massage Techniques

Woman receiving neck massageAt Casses Chiropractic Clinic, PC, unless a client asks for a specific type of massage, our massage therapists generally use a combination of various massage methods to achieve the client’s specific goals for each massage session.

Deep Tissue

This method is used to release deeper layers of contracted muscles, ease pain, and reset muscle tone. The goal in deep tissue massage is to breakdown adhesions which can cause pain, inflammation and limit motion of the muscles and joints. It is important that the client provide feedback on the amount of pressure used.


Prenatal Massage

Prenatal Massage is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness during pregnancy after the first trimester (must be at least 12 weeks unless recommended by doctor). Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches, and edema (or swelling). It also reduces stress on weight bearing joints, helps to relax nervous tension which aids in better sleep, and can help relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes.


Working primarily with the superficial muscles, Swedish massage is designed to soothe the nervous system and improve circulation. These long, soft, kneading strokes decrease muscle tension and increase blood flow throughout the body.
