Benefits of Massage
Massage is generally considered part of complementary and alternative medicine. It's increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations. Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension.
While more research is needed to confirm the benefits of massage, some studies have found massage may also be helpful for:
- Digestive disorders
- Insomnia related to stress
- Paresthesias and nerve pain
- Soft tissue strains or injuries
- Sports injuries

I was in a great deal of lower back pain for years with radiating pain down my right leg and numbness in both legs. I tried other treatments and medications and nothing worked. My medical doctors wanted to operate five times and I said no. Then I began the DRX9000 Spinal Decompression program and after my first treatment I had no pain down my leg! By the end of the program I was 100% pain free. The treatments were gentle and painless and I have recommended this treatment to many people.

I was in horrific pain! Before beginning the DRX9000 Spinal Decompression program I had many other treatments such as spinal adjustments, an epidural injection and acupuncture. Nothing helped. This was my alternative to surgery. After just three treatments I could feel the difference and each treatment thereafter I got better and better! I was 100% pain free just before ending the program. My treatments were painless and the doctors were very gentle. It�s so wonderful to have my life back in just six weeks!! I�m now back in full force with my exercise routine consisting of aerobics and yoga.

I came �.. for acute pain in my lower back due to herniated disc as confirmed by a recent MRI report. My treatment from the decompression device completely healed my back and relieved me of all pain.�
