How Much Does a Massage Cost?

It’s pretty much agreed that a good massage can feel heavenly. Perhaps the only reason you don’t indulge in a regular massage is you’re worried about the average price of a massage. Keep reading to find out more about not only the average cost of massages, but also the different types of massages that are commonly offered in chiropractic offices (bear in mind that these massage prices are for the Salt Lake City, Utah area).

Massage Therapy Price for Salt Lake City Utah

How Much Does a Massage Cost?

The average cost for a non-spa massage at a chiropractic office is approximately one dollar a minute. Massages are usually sold in half hour increments (30, 60, or 90 minutes), however beware that there are some massage companies out there who advertise a 60 minute massage, but they are actually 50 minute massages with 10 minutes factored in for “dressing time”.

Massages at spas can vary and may cost considerably more, as much as $150 an hour. Massages in a spa setting tend to cost more due to higher overhead- think same massage in a fancier setting.

The price of a massage may vary depending on the type of massage.

Swedish Massage:

This European technique uses long, fluid strokes to calm the body, settle the mind, and restore lost energy. It is gentle, soothing and emphasizes relaxation. This is a good choice for anyone who is new to massage.

Deep Tissue Massage:

Deep, intensive holds and releases stimulate blood flow to restricted areas and relieve knotted muscles that are unable to fully release on their own. Ideal for severe or chronic muscle tightness. Occasionally, some soreness may result after treatment.

Hot Stone Therapy:

A therapeutic treatment utilizing the application of hot basalt river stones of varying sizes to key points on the body to create improved circulatory flow. This allows for a more intense manipulation of the tissues.

Pre-Natal Massage:

A relaxing treatment tailored specifically to alleviate the physical discomfort and fatigue related to the changing bodies of pregnant women. Trained therapists adjust their techniques to help improve circulation, diminish back and hip pain, relieve headaches, reduce leg cramps and swollen ankles and promote overall relaxation. Only available after first trimester of pregnancy.

Reflexology:

This Eastern technique is based on stimulating specific pressure points on the feet that correspond to other areas and organs of the body. Used to help restore and maintain the body’s natural equilibrium by improving circulation, detoxification and reducing tension.

Let’s Eat Utah: Biscoff Spread

It might not be the healthiest thing, but, well, it’s about the yummiest thing we’ve had lately. Yes, we’re talking about Biscoff Spread. It’s a cookie spread that somehow found it’s way all the way from Belgium to Utah. We don’t know how, but we’re sure glad we found it at our local grocery store. Chiropractic Salt Lake City

Consider it a delightful substitute for peanut butter or Nutella made from those same cookies that you get on flights. We’ve found that it’s delightful on whole-wheat toast, apples, and even by the spoonful.

Best Chiropractic Care in Salt Lake City

Why is February a good time to finally get the chiropractor care that you need?

Good question, and for this, we have a list.

Top Ten Reasons February is the Month You See a Chiropractor at Balanced Health:

1. It’s a safe, medicine-free way to take care of the nagging back, neck, or spine pain you’ve been dealing with.

2. If you’re like so many adults (and teens and kids for that matter) you’re probably spending a lot of time sitting at a computer screen these days. This can result in all sorts of recurrent pain. Get your spine healthy and get rid of the pressure and pain you’ve been feeling every time you sit down at a computer.

3. Same day appointments are available- no need to wait for back pain relief. And you’ve probably noticed we’re conveniently located in Salt Lake City- on the corner of 7200 South and State Street.

4. Looking for an excuse for a massage? Chiropractic care plus massage can be a real game-changer- not to mention a massage feels real good.

5. Chiropractic adjustments are gentle and we promise, they don’t hurt. Let Dr. Cheney know what your comfort level is, and we’re sure you’ll walk away feeling better.

6. Chiropractic care is a very effective way to treat chronic headaches including migraines. Really.

7. Have you ever tried out a Intersegmental Traction Table? Or as we informally call them, a roller table? If the answer is no, you should.

8. If you’re worried about finding the time for your chiropractic appointments, don’t worry. You can plan on not waiting and a quick appointment at our Salt Lake office.

9. At Balanced Health we believe in a natural approach to real health. Addressing the cause rather than the symptoms, without drugs and without surgery.

and last but not least….

10. Balanced Health offers sincere, gentle care. We’re here to make you feel better and we’re sure you’ll walk away happy.
