Massage therapy in Sarasota, FL is a conservative treatment for managing musculoskeletal pain, supporting the body’s natural healing process following an injury, and relieving chronic stress and anxiety. Our Sarasota chiropractor Dr. Abe Kozma frequently recommends massage treatments in conjunction with chiropractic care and corrective exercises, such as deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy.
The seemingly simple act of massaging sore or tight muscle tissue can have a profound impact on the body’s overall health. When the muscles and connective tissues become tight and restricted, this hinders mobility and intensifies pain. Massage helps to lengthen the connective tissues, which minimizes pain and restores a natural range of mobility to the body and minimizing pain.
Our massages in Sarasota, FL can help with:
Deep Tissue Massage: This type of massage, for example, helps release musculoskeletal tension associated with chronic pain conditions, including back pain, sciatica, neck pain, TMJ, migraines and headaches.
Trigger Point Therapy: This type of massage targets specific areas of muscular tension that block mobility, leading to referred pain that radiates to other areas of the body. By targeting tough, tight and painful trigger points and scar tissue that is associated with injuries, trigger point therapy may help the body heal faster after injury. Trigger point therapy is also beneficial for managing pain associated with “knots” in the body’s muscles and connective tissues.
Massage therapy also improves the mind-body connection, which delivers important stress relief benefits. Daily stressors can truly add up over time, causing the muscles to contract and tense up. This is one reason why many individuals can find it difficult to simply “relax”; even on vacation, for example, they may still find that their bodies are tense. Massage helps by releasing the tension that is trapped deep within the muscles.
According to clinical research, a single 90-minute massage session can significantly lower your heart rate, cortisol levels and insulin levels. Regular therapeutic massage treatments also promote easier and deeper breathing, helping patients sleep more soundly at night with a calmer mind.
All Sarasota massage treatments are tailored to each patient’s individual wellness needs. Treatments may be given in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments sessions or separately, as needed. Massage is beneficial before and after chiropractic adjustments. Massage treatments help to warm the body and relax the muscles so the body is better prepared for adjustments.
Massage also helps the body more readily accept the adjustment as the supporting muscles are better able to adapt and maintain the improved posture. Most massage therapy appointments last between 60 and 90 minutes. Afterwards expect to feel calm, relaxed and centered!
