Of all the forms of healing, massage therapy is one that has used persistently throughout the centuries and has been adopted by a wide variety of cultures. Within the United States, massage therapy falls in the category of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM); it is sometimes used alongside conventional medicine. Our Chicago massage therapy team at Ravenswood Health and Wellness Center is here to help you get the most benefits from Chicago chiropractic care through massage therapy.
Research shows that about one-fourth of the adult American population has used massage therapy to control and alleviate pain. Our massage therapy at Ravenswood, in conjunction with chiropractic care, has proven to be effective in relieving pain, coaxing vertebrae and supporting muscles into proper alignment, as well as rehabilitating sports injuries. In addition, Ravenswood's massage therapy also helps in relieving stress, anxiety, depression, thus promoting overall well-being and happiness.
Massage therapy at Ravenswood is formulated specifically to the individual’s needs. Thus, it will vary from patient to patient, and even from session to session throughout the course of the treatment. The preliminary meeting with our Lead Massage Therapist will first involve a routine inquiry about your medical history, current symptoms, and desired results. Patients have the option to wear loose-fitting clothing, or to simply expose the particular area being massaged through use of a sheet or towel.
Dr. Fennema, Dr. Puzon and Ada Zerhoundi have seen numerous occasions where Ravenswood's massage therapy has resulted in diminishing or completely eliminating a patient’s health problems. Our expertise is based on years of careful study and examination of the positive effects of massage therapy in Chicago and across the nation. Massage therapy at Ravenswood is safe and poses very little risk.
