Batavia Massage Therapy Help Patients Manage Pain and Stress
Batavia massage therapy is a non-invasive, natural treatment that helps manage pain and stress as well as help in the healing process following an injury.
Here at Sharratt Chiropractic, our chiropractor Dr. Sharratt believes that wellness comes from within. Massage naturally promotes healing while calming and centering the mind, and is an essential part of any holistic treatment plan.
Massage Therapy is a Natural Back Pain Treatment for Holistic Healing
Massage therapy helps many of our patients experience immediate pain relief while promoting long-term wellness. Massage therapy helps relieve back pain caused by disc degeneration, herniated and bulging discs, and as an all natural treatment, it is ideal for back pain during pregnancy.
During a treatment, our therapist's soothing touch naturally invites your body and mind to relax. As our therapist kneads your muscles, important physiological changes occur in the body. Your breathing and heart rate will slow, your blood pressure will decrease and the levels of cortisol, a stress hormone, will also decline. The physical act of massaging your muscles improves lymph circulation and blood flow, removing toxins and lactic acid from our muscles. When these toxins build up in our muscles, they block our body's ability to naturally heal itself. By flushing out these toxins, we spend internal healing and reduce inflammation.
The Types of Massage Therapy We Offer
Our Batavia licensed massage therapists are trained in a variety of styles including trigger point release, deep tissue, Swedish massages, reflexology, athletic massages and lymphatic drainage massages. We tailor each treatment to the individual injury and wellness needs of every patient. For example, if you are an athlete recovering from injury or struggling with muscle soreness, athletic massages or reflexology massages can help. Trigger point massages target specific points in the body to release pain and reduce muscle spasms. Every treatment offers unique benefits for the musculoskeletal system. As part of your journey back to wellness, our chiropractor works closely with our massage therapist to create a customized treatment plan for your holistic healing.
We also offer pre-natal and peri-natal massages as well as pregnancy massages and infant massages. During pregnancy, a woman's body undergoes profound physical and hormonal changes. Many women struggle with intense pain in the lower back, hips or other parts of the body. Our chiropractor recommends regular treatments from our therapists, who are specially trained to care for pregnant women. Our therapists can also provide assistance following birth that speeds the recovery process. Our therapists can also help provide massages for your infant, which are a natural way to relieve colic, promote better sleep, and may even help strengthen an infant's immune system.
A Typical Treatment Session
A typical treatment session lasts between 45 and 90 minutes, depending on your individual needs. Each session targets specific muscles, tendons and ligaments in the body. Following a massage therapy session, you will feel relaxed and centered. We often recommend combining treatments with your regular visit for chiropractic care, physical therapy or clinical nutrition counseling as part of your holistic healing plan.
