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:
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.
