The Benefits of Massage At Our SLO Chiropractic Clinic:

- Reduced muscle pain and muscle tension

- Improves circulation, which increases blood flow, bringing fresh oxygen to body tissues
- Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation
“By adding muscle therapy to my practice, I have found that my patient’s results both in pain relief and improved function. Healing time has also been much faster by teaming up chiropractic and massage therapy. We offer a unique approach to massage therapy in our office: as your doctor, I will prescribe a specific program for your massage based on your body’s specific healing patterns. This enhances your results for feeling better and functioning better!” –Dr. Scott Dubrul
What is Targeted Massage Therapy?
At Powersource, our therapists use clinical massage aimed at alleviating symptoms and returning you to full function. Trained thoroughly in musculoskeletal anatomy, our muscle therapists use techniques targeted at specific muscles. These include modalities such as trigger point therapy, sports massage and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation.
Why Massage Therapy?
While some pain is skeletal in origin, other pain is muscular in origin. Addressing both structures accelerates healing time and helps locate the root cause of your pain. Muscular pain is often caused by ‘trigger points’ or hyper-irritable knots in your muscle. This pain may radiate out from its origin and affect nearby structures. Trigger points are effectively relieved by trigger point massage from a professional massage therapist.

What Our Patient’s Have to Say:
•Working with Chris has been the best investment of my money. I am an athletic 23 yr old female who experienced an injury in March 2020. Before and after surgery I had an array of doctors dismiss the pain I was experiencing. I spent two years trying to find answers to my pain and lack of mobility. Both doctors and physical therapists disregarded it or told me it would go away on its own. My back hurt so bad I couldn't walk a block. One session with Chris and I was walking again. With just a few sessions, Chris has been able not only to identify but eliminate the pain and restricted mobility I assumed I would have for the rest of my life. --Marisa
• Bryce is the best! He is so skilled and knowledgeable about how the body works! Through massage with Bryce, pain that I have had for years is gone. He is amazing! -D. Cole, San Luis Obispo
• Rachael is incredibly friendly and knowledgable! I look forward to every visit. In a very short period of time I have noticed a huge difference in how my body feels throughout the day - not to mention the positive influence my treatment has had on my outlook regarding my health. --Lisa, San Luis Obispo
How Stretching Reduces Stress
The stretches and simple breathing techniques that you will learn in this class are designed to help your body rest and recover by lowering blood pressure and heart rate, which counteracts the effect of our stress-inducing lifestyles. Stretching not only has the effect of releasing tight muscles and reducing pain, but also relaxes the body and decreases stress and its effects.
