Medical Monday: Massage Therapy

Posted: Updated:

Massage might sound like a nice way to relax and release some tension, but it can be beneficial to those suffering from a number of ailments. As part of an integrative medicine initiative, Gundersen Health System is incorporating things like massage and acupuncture into more conventional treatments.

Though not always covered by insurance, massage therapist Donna McBride said massage can provide another option for treating a number of conditions including those associated with pregnancy and even in some cases, cancer. Those interested can learn more about massage and integrative medicine as a whole at an open house on Wed. Oct. 25 from 4-6 p.m. at the Onalaska Clinic.
