Los Angeles Chiropractor Expands Massage Therapy Services by Increasing the Number of Massage Therapists on Staff

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 27, 2011) - Dr. Thomas Marinaro, a licensed chiropractor and owner of the Pain Relief Center in Los Angeles, has expanded the massage therapy services available at the chiropractic center. The Pain Relief Center now has 15 massage therapists on staff and is able to offer a broad range of massage appointments for patients in Beverly Hills, Hollywood Hills, and surrounding areas of LA. Dr. Marinaro's clinic provides different types of massage, including Deep Tissue, Prenatal, Shiatsu, Sports, Swedish and Thai massage. Massage therapy can be used to treat a variety of patient issues such as back pain, neck pain, and injuries.

The Pain Relief Center's chiropractor, Dr. Marinaro, has been providing chiropractic care to patients in Los Angeles for 20 years. The Center provides chiropractic care, massage therapy, acupuncture, and diet and nutrition counseling for patients. Dr. Marinaro designs chiropractic treatment plans on an individual basis for patients that have back pain, neck pain, whiplash, auto accident injuries, and work-related injuries. In addition to performing spinal adjustments, Dr. Marinaro may prescribe massages for patients that require pain relief, are suffering from stress or anxiety, or are in need of injury rehabilitation. According to Dr. Marinaro, "Massage is often a very effective method of treatment when combined with chiropractic care to speed up recovery and increase the relief that patients receive from adjustments."

The Los Angeleschiropractor currently has 15 massage therapists on staff and offers several different types of massage that are chosen based on the patient's particular need. The massages offered at the clinic include Deep Tissue, Prenatal, Shiatsu, Sports, Swedish and Thai massage. Deep Tissue massages target underlying muscle and soft tissues. Prenatal, or pregnancy, massages are used to treat any discomfort that a mother feels and to ease the stress of pregnancy on her body. A Japanese method of massage, Shiatsu massages focus on energy flow and balance within the body to provide stress and pain relief. Sports massages are intended for athletes and fitness enthusiasts to help optimize athletic performance and aid the recovery from injuries. A Swedish massage is the most well-known method of massage as it is said to have a range of benefits for patients. Thai massage has been around for several thousand years and is performed on a fully clothed patient on a mat rather than a table.

Dr. Marinaro will work with one of the massage therapists on staff to select the appropriate massage for each patient. "Massage in general has so many benefits for patients, like pain relief, relaxation, stress and anxiety relief, speeding up injury recovery, and helping reduce chronic pain," said Dr. Marinaro. The center's website has a page dedicated to Massage Therapy that lists all of the possible benefits of massage for patients. Patients interested in a customized chiropractic treatment plan can call the Pain Relief Center to get more information or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Marinaro.
