Juneau, AK AK Massage therapyMassage therapy has been used for many 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 therapy does much more than just feel good. It also offers many health benefits as well. Some are physical and others are psychological, and here are some of the proven benefits:

  • Pain relief (back, neck, shoulder, legs, arm, and headache pain)
  • Improved range of motion and mobility
  • Better cardiovascular function
  • Improved immune system function
  • Enhanced sports performance
  • Decreased depression or anxiety
  • Increased levels of energy
  • Lower levels of fatigue
  • Improved sleep
  • Easier labor and delivery for expecting mothers
  • Reduced 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 has also proven advantageous for burn injury patients, people with high blood pressure, and women who suffer from premenstrual syndrome. Even preterm infants have shown benefits with massage therapy as they have improved levels of weight gain.
