Therapeutic massage 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. Therapeutic massage does much more than just feel great. It also offers many health benefits as well. Some are physical and others are psychological, and here are just a few of each:
Benefits like 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 better levels of weight gain.
