Benefits of Massage Therapy

Therapeutic massage has been used for thousands of years as a natural pain relief approach. We use massage therapy in our Beaverton office, as it works great in conjunction with the chiropractic care that First Choice Chiropractic & Rehab PC provides. Massage treatment 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 just a few of each:

  • Pain reduction (back, neck, shoulder, legs, arm, and headache pain)
  • Increased range of motion and flexibility
  • Improved blood flow
  • Improved immune system function
  • Enhanced sports performance
  • Decreased depression and anxiety
  • Increased levels of energy
  • Lower levels of fatigue
  • Easier time getting and staying asleep
  • Easier labor and delivery for expecting mothers
  • Reduced stretch marks
  • Less scar tissue

Benefits like these have been seen to be especially helpful for individuals who suffer with chronic conditions such as arthritis and asthma. Therapeutic massage has also proven advantageous for burn injury patients, people with higher than healthy 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.
