Dr. Roby Taylor Myers, Owner & Lead Chiropractor at East Coast Elite Chiropractic-Sports Performance & Rehab
I appreciate all the support over the last 2 years while setting up my new practice. I have had successful results with over 90-95% of my patients with disc injuries/ neck/ back pain in utilizing the DTS table as a stand alone treatment. I will be honest- it was a tough decision initially because of the financial investment/ commitment while I was starting practice. I am glad that I decided to integrate the DTS into my practice from the start because of the referrals and the wonderful response from my patients. Thanks again for all your help over the last 2 years and continued support.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are the benefits of massage therapy in a chiropractic setting?
Massage can be an important component of a comprehensive chiropractic treatment plan; however, massage therapy and chiropractic massage have different intentions, and therefore, different approaches. In some instances, massage therapists work in tandem with the chiropractor while some chiropractors will incorporate massage into their own practices. Massage therapy’s main goal is to relieve stress, tension, and pain. Chiropractic medicine addresses pain and tension associated with musculoskeletal conditions in addition to a myriad of other medical concerns like chronic headaches and ear infections.
In either setting, one of the most significant benefits of getting massage therapy in conjunction with your chiropractor’s knowledge is that the massage therapist has access to all the medical data. They know about the patient's previous injuries, which areas to avoid, and get the green light to work on targeted areas. Patients are evaluated by the chiropractor before the massage and the massage therapist knows about any contraindications and makes sure to use the right modality to heal the patient. The massage therapist may also have access to a wider selection of massage tools and massage products so the treatment becomes much more effective.
Which supplies are necessary to add massage therapy to my practice?
A quality massage surface is essential for performing massage treatments. The right table should be height adjustable to improve ergonomics and prevent work-related stress injuries. The size and weight should also accommodate different clients comfortably. A table with attachments, such as a face cradle, leg rests, and side extensions is a plus. Also, ensure you go for a table with thick and dense padding for durability. There are two main types of massage tables that are great for deep tissue, relaxation, and full-body massages. These are:
- Stationary massage tables – These are heavier with a higher weight limit because they don't need to move regularly. These are perfect for spas and rehabilitation centers.
- Portable massage tables – These are great for massage therapists who visit clients in their residences. These are relatively lightweight, foldable, adjustable, and easy to transport. They come with a bag to make it easy to carry and move around while protecting them from travel damage.
A client needs to be comfortable and relaxed on the table for a massage to be very effective. It starts with the basics like a clean table cover that is changed between client consultations. Use massage table covers that are durable with breathable fabric, and ensure the covers are a good fit for the table. An elastic trim snaps the cover into position while Velcro straps ensure it doesn't slip. Pillows also help to position your clients well during massage sessions and promote maximum results.
They are an excellent alternative for performing localized massages on the neck, shoulders, and back. Many of these chairs are portable and easy to set up in all kinds of spaces. The seats are padded and include massage therapy attachments and tools like chest pads, head support, and armrests for maximum comfort during the massage therapy session.
A high-quality massage bolster is useful for giving your clients stable support in the areas they need it most and helps you improve access. Also, buy a few bolster covers to protect your bolsters and enable quick changes between clients.
What other massage products should I consider using during a treatment?
Aromatherapy promotes relaxation and stress relief for your clients. Essential oils come in hundreds of pleasant scents that will instantly elevate the massage session with their therapeutic benefits.
Manual and Electric Massage Tools
Massage therapy tools help to lengthen and complement massage service offerings, which benefit clients and massage therapists alike. The therapist benefits from the tools to alleviate some of the repetitive massages techniques to improve user experience. Manual tools boost therapists' capabilities and include thumb tools, head and neck tinglers, handheld massage tools, and handheld massage tools. Many massage therapists also incorporate hot and cold stone massages into their routines, making sessions incredibly relaxing. Electrical massaging tools like infrared and percussive tools are used to apply heat and vibrations to problem areas.
What massage lubricants are preferred by professional massage therapists?
Oils, lotions, and creams have many benefits during a massage, such as decreasing friction, being effective emollients and moisturizers, and hydrating the skin. Purchase various oils, creams, and lotions to give your clients options to choose from during their sessions. Remember to stock up on organic and hypoallergenic products for clients with sensitive skin.
There are many advantages of using oils instead of creams and lotions during a massage, one being the fact that your hands stay warmer for longer against a customer's skin. Good quality massage oils should be long-lasting, non-stain, and non-greasy to ensure a pleasant and relaxing experience. Below are a few massage oils that many professionals gravitate toward.
Fractionated coconut is a favorite for many massage therapists. It's a light liquid oil that's non-greasy and stickier with less glide than regular coconut oil. It's a widely available natural oil that's more affordable and has a longer shelf life than other massage oils. Fractionated coconut oil is unscented, making it an excellent base to add your preferred essential oils blends to.
Almond oil is light and slightly greasy, allowing hands to glide over skin easily and making it very popular in the massage therapy industry. It's reasonably priced and absorbs relatively fast. Sweet almond oil has a rich concentration of vitamins, promoting a radiant glow. It also combats dryness and locks in moisture. You can also easily incorporate essential oils into it for aromatherapy benefits.
This is a non-greasy, light oil that's said to have antibacterial properties, making it a good option for clients with back acne. Jojoba oil is easily absorbed and odorless, which makes it an excellent carrier oil during aromatherapy. It doesn't stain sheets and has a long shelf life.
Avocado oil is a heavy, deep green oil that's best when combined with lighter massage oils like sweet almond oil. It's quite pricey and gentle on people with latex sensitivity. Other oils used for massage therapy include apricot kernel, cocoa butter, olive, sesame, and kukui nut oil.
Is massage therapy covered by insurance?
While chiropractic care is covered by most major insurance plans, massage therapy performed outside of the chiropractic setting is usually not covered as it is considered a part of alternative and complementary medicines (CAM). You should check with your doctor to see if there are other options available to you, in case your medical doesn't cover it.
What is the most important massage tool used in chiropractic therapy?
A chiropractor may use several massage therapy tools. These could include massage equipment and supplies such as massage table linens and massage table accessories. They will most likely also require various lubricants including massage oils, lotions, and creams.
Which massage modalities are best suited for a chiropractic setting?
The best massage modalities to incorporate into chiropractic services include Craniosacral Therapy, Deep Tissue Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Swedish Massage, and Cupping Therapy. Massage types like these often include the use of myofascial release tools for improved tension relief and promote lymphatic drainage. Swedish massage is particularly useful after a chiropractic adjustment and a deep tissue massage is often recommended before seeing the chiropractor.
