I came to respire after I hurt my rotator cuff throwing a baseball with my son. I was very worried that I would have to get surgery but Kevin paid attention to everything I told him and I was able to throw again without going through surgery. I could not be more pleased with the care I received. I would highly recommend this place to anyone going through an injury.

What exactly is a thermal massage?
The thermal massage helps stretch the spine and provide acupressure along with targeted spinal extensor muscles.
Within the table, there is deep infrared heat that penetrates soft tissue and relaxes fascia, muscles, and tendons along your spine.
Our table is designed specifically to encourage symmetrical spine position to promote postural control. Many people become hesitant when hearing about “infrared heat;” however, we are here to ease your mind. Thermal massage tables are used to provide relief, and you shouldn’t experience any sort of pain during your sessions.
The heat helps loosen muscles so your massage can be as comfortable as possible. In fact, many patients find the warmth soothing!
Evidence supporting the thermal massage table:
In a study published by The Internet Journal of Alternative Medicine, the relieving effects of the thermal massage table is proven further. Results of the study are as follows:
“Functional analysis revealed a significant increase in T cell proliferative response to PHA, a polyclonal T cell mitogen, and a significant increase in NK cell cytotoxicity following the use of TMD. We conclude that the use of TMD twice a week may modulate immune function and may be beneficial in subjects with impaired immune function, such as aging individuals and HIV patients.”
While older adults and those with compromised immune systems are common patients who can benefit from the thermal massage table, anyone experiencing pain or discomfort can participate in these treatments.
