What is massage?

Massage is a type of therapy that works on your muscles and soft tissue to improve function and health. While massage was once thought of only as a luxury, there’s now evidence that it has therapeutic benefits and can help relieve pain, reduce stress, and improve sleep.

 

The team at Kersenbrock Medical and Wellness includes massage as part of the treatment for a variety of health conditions to help you reach your health and wellness goals. Your specialist may include massage as part of your treatment plan for your auto- or sports-related injury or as part of your chiropractic back pain program.

"This is probably the most friendly and caring staff I have been around. Dr Ben studies your records plus his on hands approach is second to none. The massages are a good extra as the chiropractic visit is worth the price by itself. This is a state of the art facility and the staff is well trained. Super atmosphere and a super Staff. Five stars from this patient. "
