Massage Therapy in Tampa

person getting a foot massageDr. William Lichter stresses the importance of massage therapy, alternative medicine and nutrition in managing an overall health care regimen. From improving circulation to halting inflammation caused by poor eating habits, our massage therapists and medical professionals can get you back on the path toward well-being.

Our Philosophy

The secret to well-being is hidden inside us all. The key to uncovering it is a healthy lifestyle: proper nutrition, exercise, proper rest and positive mental attitude.

We are a boutique facility that shares a goal with you: your overall health. Our wide array of massage treatments and alternative services are built around the benefits of touch therapy.

Massage Treatments We Offer

  • Swedish Massage: Relaxation massage that provides stress relief, helps circulation, blood pressure, immune system, pain due to osteoporosis and regulation of sleep patterns.
  • Sports Massage: Focuses on therapy for athletes at any level. Speeds healing of sprains, strains, removes scar tissue, flushes lactic acid out of muscles, and improves range of motion and circulation.
  • Neuromuscular Therapy: This is also referred to as medical massage or deep tissue massage. Unlike a relaxing spa type of massage, neuromuscular therapy is geared toward helping you recover from physical injuries or overuse conditions.
  • Maternity Massage: An important therapy program to help with relaxation and reducing stress. Relieves lower back pain caused by weight gain and postural strain.
  • Deep Tissue Massage: Recommended for people suffering with high levels of stress. Muscles that are tense for extended periods can become inflamed. Deep tissue massage releases toxins, relaxes the mind, and relieves tension.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to get completely undressed for my massage?

No, you can disrobe to your level of comfort. Rest assured you’ll be appropriately draped at all times.

Where will my massage take place?

Your massage will be given in a private room. The door will be closed for your complete privacy.

Do I have to be a chiropractic patient to receive a massage at your practice?

No, although 99 percent of our massage patients are receiving both chiropractic and massage as parts of their treatment plan, massage is also offered as a stand-alone service. If you come in just for a massage, you will need to complete some brief paperwork.

If I feel uncomfortable or the pressure being applied is too much, can I say something?

Yes, we always encourage verbal feedback, as that’s the only way the therapist will know. They will make any adjustments to ensure you’re comfortable at all times.

Will lotion be used during the massage?

Typically, the massage therapist will apply lotion during the massage. If you have any allergies, please let the therapist know beforehand.

Will a massage make me sore?

It may. For example, a deep tissue massage on a patient who’s had a recent accident that resulted in an injury will leave them sore. Typically, the patient will be sore after the first session. Soreness is relatively rare beyond the first massage session.

What should I do after my massage?

It’s important to drink plenty of water and take it easy.

Can massage help with plantar fasciitis?

We’ve found that plantar fasciitis responds well to neuromuscular work and deep tissue massage.
