Massage therapy is a manipulation of soft tissue in a very deliberate manner to heal tissue. At Topeka Chiropractic we see hundreds of patients every week for this very reason. Many do not know just how effective and important regular massages are for overall health. However, it is more of a necessity for some who are experiencing severe pain.
