Massage Therapy Information

Yost Family Chiropractic is very privileged to have our wonderful massage therapists on staff.  You’ll enjoy a personalized massage combining several bodywork techniques that focus on your specific needs.  They can help you decide what massage is best for you and your body.

Therapeutic Massages:

During this relaxing session, the muscles are massaged with long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes on the top-most layers of muscles to encourage them to relax, to release toxins, and to improve circulation.  Sometimes a heavier pressure is necessary to get muscles to release and relax.  This massage can be both relaxing and energizing and may even help after an injury.

Specialty Massages:

            Deep Tissue:

Deep Tissue Massages uses slow strokes and deep pressure across the muscles.  It is applied with more pressure and to deeper layers of muscle than our Therapeutic Massages.  There is evidence that deep tissue massage helps break up and eliminate scar tissue.


Massage Cupping uses cups that create a strong vacuum that will mimic the rolling action of a deep tissue massage without the possible discomfort.  The movement may be long and draining or circular and stimulating for stubborn knots and areas of rigid tissue.  The skin will turn very red with strong suction, indicating that the circulation has been brought to the surface.  The increased local blood supply to the muscles and skin will bring nourishment and allow for toxins to be carried away.  The sensation is truly indescribable!  People often describe a deep, warmth, and a tingling sensation long after the treatment has ended. 

Another profound application of Massage Cupping therapy is for the treatment of cellulite.  This application can loosen adhesions or “dimpling”.  Successful and enjoyable body sculpting and contouring is possible, with lasting results and many health benefits!


Whether you’re experiencing first-trimester morning sickness, second-trimester backaches and leg cramps, or third-trimester swelling and sleeplessness, many of the discomforts, aches, and pains that accompany the joy of pregnancy can be eased or alleviated with Prenatal Massage. 

Our massage therapists are highly trained in pregnancy massage.  They have the experience to provide comfort for you and protection for your baby. 

            Body Focused:

During our Body Focused Massage, you’ll receive 30 minutes of Deep Tissue pared with Myofascial Release.  You can focus on one to three areas (for example, neck, shoulders, and back).  This massage is best for chronic pain.
