Injuries, chronic pain and daily stress can take a serious toll on our physical and mental well being. Boca Raton massage therapy is a natural treatment for managing pain, promoting internal healing and relieving stress. Our family chiropractor, Dr. Allan DellaBella frequently recommends massage treatments as a complement to chiropractic adjustments because, together, they help the body heal faster following an injury. Massage is also a safe, all-natural way to manage pregnancy pain.
Massage treatments don't just feel good, but they also bring the body important therapeutic benefits for those suffering from pain or tension due to a car accident injury, sports injury or work related injury. During a massage treatment, your body experiences important physiological changes. The gentle touch of our massage therapist kneading your muscles invites the body to relax, lowers the heart rate and decreases your breathing rate. The level of the stress hormone cortisol is also reduced. Cortisol is associated with the "flight or fight" fear response, and studies show that high levels of cortisol can damage or even kill cells. A decrease in cortisol levels naturally boosts your body's immunity and ability to fight of low-grade illnesses. Massage also increases the levels of the feel-good hormone, endorphin, which helps to center your mind and prepare your body to heal.
Massaging muscle tissue releases pent up tension and increases blood flow. Fresh, oxygenated blood flushes out toxins and lactic acid, enhancing the body's natural ability to heal itself. A Swedish massage uses long, stroking movements to gently relieve tension and enhance blood flow. This relaxing massage style is ideal for individuals seeking a natural form of stress relief.
At Shadowood Chiropractic Center, our massage therapist offers a variety of different massage styles, including deep tissue massage and pregnancy massage. Deep tissue massage treats musculoskeletal pain by penetrating deep beneath the superficial muscle layer. Deliberate, focused pressure releases tension in tight and knotted tissues. Patients struggling with chronic headaches or other sources of pain may also benefit from trigger point massage. This style of massage uses targeted pressure to stimulate trigger points in the body that correspond to the causes of headaches and body pain. Deep tissue and trigger point massages can speed healing following a sports injury or car accident injury and enhance natural pain relief.
Our family chiropractor, Dr. DellaBella also prescribes Boca Raton pregnancy massage as a natural way to manage pregnancy pain. During pregnancy, a woman's body undergoes significant physical and hormonal changes. Increased pressure on the pelvis and the added weight of carrying a child can lead to lower back pain and pelvic pain. Pregnancy massage is a safe, natural form of pain relief and relaxation, and releasing stress on weight bearing joints. Pregnancy massage also enhances the pliability of skin and underlying tissues, which is essential to preparing the body both for childbirth as well as healing following the birth.
Our massage sessions can last between 45 and 90 minutes, depending on your needs. We tailor each treatment to you individual injury and pain management needs. If you are receiving chiropractic adjustments, our chiropractor works closely with our massage therapist to ensure that the massage treatments complement your wellness needs.
