Therapeutic massage has been used for thousands of years as a natural pain relief solution. We use massage therapy in our Anchorage office, as it works great in conjunction with the chiropractic care that Dr. Matthisen provides. Therapeutic 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 medically documented benefits:
Benefits such as these have been seen 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 hypertension, and women who suffer from premenstrual syndrome. Even preterm infants have shown benefits with massage therapy as they have increased levels of weight gain.
