Massage therapy is the practice of the movement of muscles in the body by a licensed massage therapist to promote blood circulation, muscle relaxation, and healing of soft tissue injury. In New Mexico, massage therapists must be licensed by the New Mexico Board of Massage Therapy (we only employ licensed massage therapists), and have to go through extensive training by accredited schools prior to that. Massage therapy is taken quite seriously at Family Chiropractic Center of Santa Fe, because we know that chiropractic and massage therapy work very well together, and that the combination treatment produces extraordinary results. We have only the finest, experienced massage therapists at this office, each trained in medical massage, which is the special training necessary to work with patients with specific medical issues. Prior to becoming a licensed chiropractic physician, Dr. Perlstein was a massage therapist licensed in Florida, one of the first states to license massage therapists.
