Massage Therapy Des Moines Iowa


"Over 10 years ago I walked into Connections with a somewhat skeptical attitude. In one session, I knew my concerns were unfounded and that I had found a possible solution to my head pain. Therapists Lois and Gordon immediately found my problem and began a treatment program. For over a year I had suffered from severe pain on the right side of my head. I had been to several physicians and had even been admitted to the hospital for treatment. In a prescribed physical therapy session, the therapist suggested I try Connections. She said my pain was not responding to the physical therapy she was providing and she had seen very positive results from patients who went to Connections. After my first treatment with Lois I actually felt some relief. It had been so long since I had been pain free that I wasn’t sure it was true. But after three sessions the change was significant, and after 5 treatments my pain was gone!  Finally, after more than a year of pain, I was pain free. I have never been treated by therapists that are as knowledgeable and well trained as Lois and Gordon.
