Batavia Chiropractor Offers Lymphatic Drainage Massage

BATAVIA, IL--(Marketwire - Feb 12, 2012) - Sharratt Chiropractic Family Health & Massage Center in Batavia, Ill. announced that they offer several advanced types of pain relieving massage, including Lymphatic Drainage, in addition to their therapeutic massage treatments. Sharratt Chiropractic has four Licensed Massage Therapists on staff and provides a range of manual techniques including Deep Tissue, Craniosacral, Pregnancy, Fertility, Trigger Point, and Sports Massage. According to the Sharratt Chiropractic website, they offer a variety of massage services including single session massages, massage packages, membership in their "massage club," and manual therapies as part of the chiropractic treatment plan.

The owner of Sharratt Chiropractic, Dr. Jack Sharratt stated that the Massage Center is an important component of Sharratt Chiropractic's overall vision. Dr. Sharratt said, "We are committed to helping patients find pain relief and live active, healthy lives through natural care. We have four licensed therapists on staff who are able to provide comprehensive massage services. For example, Lymphatic Drainage massage is a type of manual therapy that requires extra training and has immense benefits."

According to the chiropractor, manual lymphatic drainage is a holistic treatment that stimulates the flow of lymph by applying a specific amount of pressure and rhythmic circular movements at designated points on the patient's body. The lymphatic system aids the body's immune system by moving toxins away from healthy cells and carrying germ-fighting materials to diseased cells, but it does not have a heart or other organ to pump lymph through the body. If lymph cannot drain naturally, tissues may become swollen and could become prone to infection.

"The primary goal of this technique is to promote wellness through a healthy lymphatic system," Sharratt said. "It can also be helpful in reducing painful swelling, relieving allergy symptoms, and reducing the pain of menstrual cramps. This therapy is an important component of our natural approach to health and wellness because it can relax the patient's mind and body, reduce stress and promote healing from within."

The four licensed therapists at Sharratt Chiropractic -- Leah McCloskey, Jenny Luetgert, Mandy Holtz and Sarah Dick -- are certified in a range of therapeutic techniques. According to the therapists, they continue to update their certifications so Sharratt Chiropractic is able to cater to a variety of patient needs such as back pain treatments, migraine relief and arthritis therapy. Other Batavia massage treatments provided by the therapists include Trigger Point Release, Deep Tissue, Swedish, Reflexology, and Athletic. According to Sharratt Chiropractic, several of the therapists are also trained in Pre-natal and Pregnancy massage to address back pain in early pregnancy.

"At Sharratt Chiropractic, we believe in providing all natural forms of relief for back pain treatment, sciatica, fibromyalgia, and other conditions which can make it difficult for patients to enjoy life to its fullest. By combining chiropractic care, Lymphatic Drainage or other types of massage, and lifestyle counseling, we hope to provide our patients with a complete approach to health and wellness," said Dr. Sharratt.
