Juneau, AK AK Massage therapyMassage has been used for thousands of years as a natural pain relief approach. We use massage therapy in our Juneau, AK office, as it works great in conjunction with the chiropractic care that Dr. Messerschmidt provides. Massage does much more than just feel great. It also offers many positive effects as well. Some are physical and others are psychological, and here are just a few of each:

  • Pain relief (back, neck, shoulder, legs, arm, and headache pain)
  • Improved range of motion and mobility
  • Better circulation
  • Improved immune system function
  • Enhanced sports performance
  • Reduced depression and anxiety
  • Higher levels of energy
  • Decreased levels of fatigue
  • Easier time getting and staying asleep
  • Easier labor and delivery for expecting mothers
  • Fewer stretch marks
  • Reduced scar tissue

Advantages such as these have been found to be particularly helpful for individuals who suffer with chronic conditions such as arthritis and asthma. Massage therapy has also proven advantageous for burn injury patients, people with higher than healthy blood pressure, and women who suffer from premenstrual syndrome. Even preterm infants have shown benefits with massage therapy as they have increased levels of weight gain.
