The body is like a symphony. All parts must be in complete harmony with each other in order for a masterpiece to occur. It is no wonder that we only achieve ideal health when our body, mind, and spirit find perfect peace and harmony with one another. Massage therapy has risen above the term "alternative therapy." Current day, it's a vital part of the health care practices of many people living in today's stress-heavy world.


What is Massage Therapy?
Massage (derived from the French massage "friction of kneading," possibly from Arabic massa "to touch, feel, handle" or from Latin massa "mass, dough") is a hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues and joints of the body with physical, functional, i.e. mechanical, medical/therapeutic, and in some cases emotional purposes and goals. The soft tissues include muscle, skin, tendons and associated fascia, ligaments and joint capsules. Massage has many diverse physiological effects, which are primarily due to the therapist's hands moving over the body. The different movements can physically stretch muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia, encourage the circulation through the tissue, inhibit muscular spasms and be either sedating or stimulating to the nervous system. Considered both an art and a science, massage therapy is utilized for simple relaxation as well as for therapeutic treatment for many conditions.


Massage may be successful treatment for:

*Stress Reduction
*Existing Injuries
*Fluid Retention
*Muscle Tension & Soreness
*Prevention of New Injuries
*Effects of Forced Inactivity
*Combating Depression
*Boosting the Immune System
*Headache and Sinus Pain Relief
*Improving Circulation
*Promoting Healthy Skin



After a therapist's name you should look for LMT, which means Licensed MassageTherapist. This means you can be sure you are in the care of a qualified professional. Tennessee maintains very high standards for Licensed Massage Therapists, including 500 hours of training and are certified from The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork. Our massage therapists are licensed in Tennessee and receive continuing education in anatomy, physiology, bodywork techniques and CPR.

*Swedish
*Cranial Sacral
*Lymphatic
*Pregnancy/Pre-natal
*Aromatherapy
*Deep Tissue

Not a Mason Chiro patient? No Problem! Anyone is welcome to enjoy a massage at Mason Chiropractic Health & Wellness. Although chiropractic care and massage therapy greatly compliment each other, it is not a requirement to be a chiropractic patient of Dr. Mason's to benefit from massage therapy at our office. However, people benefit greatly when using both chiropractic care and massage therapy together. We now can bill massage therapy to your insurance company but for us to be able to do this you need to be a patient of Dr. Mason. *Not all insurances reimburse for massage.





Where Will My Massage Session take Place?
Your massage will take place in a warm, comfortable, quiet room. Soft music may be played to help you relax.

What Do I Wear During A Massage?
For a full body massage, most people disrobe completely. However, you may choose to wear underpants. Your massage therapist will give you privacy to undress, and you will be covered with a sheet and blanket at all times except the area being worked on.

What Should I Do During A Massage?
Relax and let the therapist do the work. Give the therapist feedback if you are uncomfortable with anything during the sessions (too cold, too warm, would prefer more or less pressure, etc.).

How Long Does A Massage Last?
We offer full 30, 60 and 90 minute sessions. Our 60-minute sessions seem to be the most popular.

What Can I Expect Afterwards?
Some people feel very relaxed after a massage session, while others feel energized. If deeper tissue work was performed, you may experience soreness for a day or two following the massage session. Remember to drink plenty of water.



*Gift Certificates are available
*Appointments available Mon-Fri.

  • "I was experiencing a stiff neck and painful low back with limited ranges of motion. My results were much improved range of motion and low back pain was eliminated. After adjustments and a couple of massages, I played my best round of golf of the year - pain free!"

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
