Massage therapy has been used for thousands of years as a natural pain relief treatment. We use massage therapy in our Portland office, as it works great in conjunction with the chiropractic care that Dr. Helton provides. Therapeutic massage 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:
Advantages such as these have been discovered to be extremely helpful for individuals who suffer with chronic conditions such as arthritis and asthma. Massage 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.
