What are the benefits of a Therapeutic Massage?

Massage therapy can be beneficial for the reduction of stress and fatigue. It can help to improve circulation, reduce pain, and improve sleep. It can ease symptoms of depression, improve balance in older adults, lower blood pressure, decrease symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and increase range of motion. Massage therapy can contribute to your overall general wellness.

Often, a therapeutic massage and a chiropractic adjustment can benefit each other. This is why we offer massage therapy at our Ontario Chiropractic office.
