Medical massage therapists are an integral part of a health care team that are skilled in techniques that emphasize treatment of specific conditions or diagnoses. Our Massage Therapists are licensed and trained in the advanced deep tissue techniques that release the inner tensions often related to daily stress, rehabilitation and the healing processes that are enhanced by the additional blood flow initiated and lactic acid release achieved through regular massage.
The many benefits of massage therapy include:
I recently began acupuncture treatments with Dr. Campbell. Never having done this before, I was a little apprehensive, but very excited at the possibility of an additional means of pain relief. Before scheduling the initial appointment, Shannon, the new patient coordinator, was very helpful in answering all my preliminary questions. Once the treatment plan was in place, she offered to coordinate my feedback communications (emails) with Dr. Campbell. This has made it so easy to keep him informed of the requested post-acupuncture status and to get his guidance for continued progress. I commend Shannon for her professional, helpful attitude--something I feel I don't see very often these days. Also, I want to say how kind and comforting Dr. Campbell has been during the acupuncture sessions. He shows concern for me as a patient and has performed the acupuncture to provide much-needed pain relief. I look forward to continuing through this process in my new adventure.
I want to thank Ancora Pain Recovery. Before finding you I was being treated by the VA for dystonia. I was on 23 different meds and was only given a once a year procedure. I thought I was going to die, and I wanted to die. Since coming to Ancora Pain Recovery I feel as if my life has taken on a whole new direction. Dr. Campbell re-evaluated my medications, talked to me about procedure options and introduced me to physical therapy (mechanical diagnosis & treatment) and massage therapy to help combat the symptoms of dystonia.
After visiting your office I was finally able to plant a garden this year! I feel better than I have in 10 years.
Thank you to your massage therapists for doing such a great job. Prior to being a patient in your practice and receiving massage therapy, I felt like it hurt just trying to hold my head up. I no longer have that problem.
I received massage therapy for many years, mostly for relaxation. I took a bad fall about a year ago and experienced severe pain. It was recommended that I try both a procedure and massage therapy. I so look forward to the massage. It is no longer about relaxation, though I still enjoy it. I get so much therapeutic value from it. I am more flexible and my muscle pain has decreased tremendously. I am a very satisfied patient.
