Massage therapy in Baton Rouge is provided by the Ozark Chiropractic Clinic to relax and heal your body in a number of different ways. We provide many types of massage treatments including deep tissue, sports, and prenatal massages.
Certain conditions respond well to different kinds of massage, and wherever possible we will create a treatment program that is tailored to the individual patient to ensure that the best results are achieved.
Deep tissue massage therapy in Baton Rouge
Deep tissue massage utilizes strong strokes and pressure to assist in the relief of pain and to restore movement. It is an effective and efficient therapy commonly used to cure acute aches and pains in the neck, back and legs.
Prenatal and postnatal massage
The body is under a lot of stress during pregnancy, and massages to relieve aches and pains in your body during this time can often be beneficial. Such massages can prepare you for labor, relaxing you, and preparing the muscles for the impending birth. It is a gentle massage that will be sympathetic to the stage of pregnancy you have reached.
Postnatal massage will help your mind and body recover from the effects of childbirth, helping you to sleep better and get your body back to its original state.
Sports massage therapy in Baton Rouge
Sports massage is designed to help prevent and treat injuries that can occur as a result of exercise or physical exertion. This type of massage can restore mobility to injured muscles, and the stretching and manipulation of the muscle tissue can support patients in both recovery from exertion or injury and can also prevent injury from occurring in the first instance.
How does Massage Therapy in Baton Rouge work?
In every different style of massage, different areas of the body are targeted, from the top layers to deep within. The overall effect of each type of massage is to stimulate blood flow, promote healing, and relax the muscles.
This reduces aches and pains and helps you to feel better for longer. Regular massage therapy will enhance this effect and keep your body in top condition.
Preparing for Massage Therapy in Baton Rouge
Massage therapy is designed to heal your body and be a relaxing experience, and so there is nothing to worry about. We always put the needs of our patients in first place and will do everything we can to make sure you are comfortable.
No massage should ever be performed over wounds, infected skin, bruises, or anywhere over recent bone injuries. If in doubt, please contact us to discuss your needs.
Ensuring you are well-hydrated before receiving a massage will give the best experience as this allows your muscles to be more easily manipulated. Only eat a light meal before your massage as heavy meals may reduce your comfort during the therapy.
