Massage Therapy

ALT-MED massage therapist, Rachael Houck, is exceptionally well trained in a variety of massage techniques individualized to what you need at that specific time.

A licensed massage therapist is well trained and nationally certified.  Rachael received her training in massage therapy at the Wellness and Massage Training Institute and has worked at ALT-MED for over fifteen years.

The goal of massage therapy is to reduce pain, inflammation and stress as well as increase range of motion. Medical research has shown that massage therapy is effective for reducing acute and chronic pain. It is also beneficial for a number of stress-related medical conditions. Massage therapy works best in conjunction with physical therapy and/or acupuncture.

I was one of the many people suffering with back pain plus a herniated disc. The pain was so bad that I could not walk very far or sit for too long. Through "word of mouth" I heard of Dr. Patrick Massey. So I had my daughter make an appointment with the doctor....he recommended some exercises that were tailored for my body (and condition). I highly recommend Dr. Patrick Massey for back pain. Go and see him. What can you lose , only your back pain.
