Benefits of Massage Therapy

How Massage Therapeutics Can Help in Portland

Massage has been used for millennia as a natural pain relief approach. We use massage therapy in our Portland office, as it works great in conjunction with the chiropractic care that Dr. Helton 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 medically documented benefits:

  • Pain relief (back, neck, shoulder, legs, arm, and headache pain)
  • Increased range of motion and flexibility
  • Improved cardiovascular 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
  • Fewer stretch marks
  • Diminshed scar tissue

We Can Help You Find Support From Neck Pain and Headaches with Massage Therapy

Advantages like these have been seen to be shown to be 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 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.
