"I have been going to Connections since they opened in 1993. The hour massage has helped with back pain and headache pain; in fact, I have not missed a day of work with any kind of health problem since getting a regular full-body massage."

— Jerry E. Overman


"In the fall of 2009, my back went out. Nothing would make it feel better. I had difficulty carrying my baby or even moving. Finally, I went to see Gordon. After one treatment, I could move very slowly. In the next few days, my pain completely vanished. I don't know how the treatment worked- but it did. Thank you Gordon!"

— Susan Cox

medical massage iowa, medical massage des moinesMedical massage is a treatment to resolve a condition that has been diagnosed and prescribed by a physician. The therapist will use a variety of procedures with the treatment plan. The massage therapist will only focus on areas of the body related to what the physician has diagnosed and prescribed for treatment. One of the areas that medical massage in Iowa can help with is carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a burning pain, numbness, or tingling in the wrist, fingers, and hand. You may feel the pain in your hands and fingers, but a massage therapist will massage the upper back and neck. The massage will increase circulation, blood flow, and fluids throughout your body. This will help reduce the inflammation and pain.

Many people suffer from fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is a condition where there is widespread pain in the muscles. Some people suffer from fatigue also. With the aid of massage therapy treatments muscular imbalance can be restored to muscles in your body. A therapist will need to evaluate you as a patient to see how your body works. Once that has been decided, a unique plan of treatment will be developed for you.
