I am delighted to announce that we have expanded our services at AlignLife of Springfield Chiropractic & Natural Health Center. Born and raised in Springfield, IL, Emily Handley, 29, focuses on massage therapy having graduated in 2012 from Midwest Technical Institute and the Healing Arts Center in St. Louis, MO, in 2012. She has worked alongside chiropractors for the past four years.
When used to compliment chiropractic care, massage therapy can loosen tension in muscles and stabilize joints. Many patients find that, once massage is integrated into their care, their adjustments hold longer in between treatments. Using both therapies simultaneously can result in a much faster recovery time. Massage therapy can also help relieve pain from headaches, soft tissue and joints, fibromyalgia, and muscle tension. It can also help those with anxiety.
Emily is trained in Swedish massage style, but also offers deep tissue, prenatal and hot stone massage. Emily schedules her appointments to work around her patients and is available Monday to Friday morning, afternoon, and evening.
Having Emily on board is a great asset to our patients. With a combined approach, chiropractic and massage therapy, we are able to better offer a wide range of therapies within treatment plans – and we are already seeing great results. She also brings a great energy to the Springfield team.
