New York NY Massage therapyTherapeutic massage has been used for thousands of years as a natural pain relief approach. We use massage therapy in our New York office, as it works great in conjunction with the chiropractic care that Frank J. Valente, DC, PC provides. Therapeutic massage does much more than just feel great. It also offers many health benefits as well. Some are physical and others are psychological, and here are some of the proven benefits:

  • Pain reduction (back, neck, shoulder, legs, arm, and headache pain)
  • Improved range of motion and flexibility
  • Better cardiovascular function
  • Greater immune system function
  • Enhanced sports performance
  • Reduced depression and anxiety
  • Higher levels of energy
  • Decreased levels of fatigue
  • Reduced insomnia
  • Easier labor and delivery for expecting mothers
  • Fewer stretch marks
  • Less scar tissue

Benefits like these have been discovered to be particularly 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 hypertension, and women who suffer from premenstrual syndrome. Even preterm infants have shown benefits with massage therapy as they have improved levels of weight gain.
