The goal of massage therapy is to reduce pain, inflammation and stress as well as increase range of motion.

Massage therapy works best in conjunction with physical therapy and/or acupuncture.
After experiencing sciatic pain on the left side, I had surgery to solve the problem. Shortly thereafter, I began to have sciatic pain down the other side. I assumed that surgery was necessary again. After beginning the (ALT-MED) program and doing the exercises for a couple of months, the pain was gone. I have been pain free for over six months.
