accident-151668_640Motor Vehicle Accidents often referred to as MVA’S happen frequently and cause significant physical and emotional trauma affecting many areas of your life and well-being. This is a crucial time to receive proper care which includes treatment massage therapy. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms following a MVA, please call us.

  • Headaches
  • Back/Low Back Pain

Immediately after an accident, the profound relaxation benefits of Craniosacral Therapy reverse the effects that the trauma of a car accident has on your Central Nervous System. Therapeutic bodywork will help to manage the inflammation that usually follows an auto accident by promoting circulation of both blood and lymph. During the sub-acute stage, massage helps restore and improve range of motion and prevent myofascial adhesions and the formation of scar tissue. Later, as treatment progresses specific injuries are addressed such as neck pain, headaches, whiplash, back pain, shoulder sprains/strains, hip pain, etc. Receiving proper treatment now will eliminate musculoskeletal issues later on in life.
