Therapeutic massage has been used for many thousands of years as a natural pain relief solution. We use massage therapy in our Yakima office, as it works great in conjunction with the chiropractic care that Michael J. Covington DC-PS provides. Massage therapy 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 medically documented benefits:
Advantages like these have been found to be especially 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.
