Are you wondering if massage therapy is right for your body? Then you’ve come to the right place! Whether you are struggling with chronic pain or just feel overwhelmed by stress and exhaustion, massage treatments at Shadowood Chiropractic Center can help. Massage is a natural, conservative treatment that relieves muscle tension while promoting internal healing and overall well being. Our Boca Raton chiropractor, Dr. Allan DellaBella, frequently recommends massage for pain management, stress relief and as a natural complement to chiropractic adjustments.
Our massage therapist uses a combination of gentle, kneading strokes to help your body and mind relax. The physical act of massaging muscle tissues causes important physiological changes to occur in the body. Breathing and heart rate naturally decrease, which helps to center the mind. At the same time, levels of the stress hormone cortisol decrease. Our busy lives often send our bodies into a constant state of high alert, causing a spike in cortisol levels, which also hurts your body’s immune system and can even lead to weight gain. Massage treatments lower these levels while increasing “feel-good” endorphin levels, which naturally relieves pain.
We offer a variety of massage styles to meet your wellness and injury needs. For example, many patients who are recovering from sports injuries benefit from deep tissue massage. This style of massage penetrates deep beneath the superficial layer of muscle tissues, releasing knots and tension. Deep tissue massage also helps the body heal by enhancing the flow of oxygenated blood. This flushes out the toxins and lactic acid that block healing in the muscles.
As a family chiropractor, Dr. DellaBella also provides chiropractic care to help expectant mothers manage pregnancy pain. Pregnancy massage can also help by enhancing the pliability of tissues and muscles. Pregnancy massage releases stress on weight bearing muscles, easing lower back and pelvic pain.
