Natural Bodyworks LLC recharges patients with a host of holistic treatments designed to impart happiness and bodily well-being. Led by Dr. Shawnda Gross and licensed massage therapist Brandi Cates, each massage begins with a relaxing 10 minutes of steam heat to relax clients into their session and leave the body fork-tender. A 30-minute Swedish or deep-tissue massage then releases aches and tenderizes tightened muscles in each patient’s most besieged bodily area, whether it be the shoulders, lower back, feet, or imaginary third arm—soothing away stress, correcting imbalances, and releasing endorphins from their prisons in the body’s knotty tuna nets.
For patients interested in attaining the same sense of calm as a meditating pin cushion, Dr. Gross will then conduct an acupuncture consultation and exam to determine the best application of this 2,000-year-old treatment. By inserting fine, sterile needles at muscular pressure points, acupuncture can boast a bevy of body-balancing benefits, such as the abatement of chronic pain and stress, weight loss, increased fertility, and improved blood flow. Owning to few side effects, acupuncture can be an effective way to restore physical and emotional well being without the use of drugs or excessive exposure to Kenny G, and gentle electrical stimulation may also be applied to patients suffering from certain ailments or irrational nightmares about electric eels.
Natural Bodyworks, LLC
In her quest to relieve clients' chronic pain, Dr. Shawnda Gross of Natural BodyWorks LLC embraces the intersection of Western chiropractic care and Eastern medical philosophy. A board-certified chiropractor and chiropractic acupuncturist, Dr. Gross believes in the importance of using minimally invasive procedures to address pain while also targeting underlying structural and energetic imbalances. With the help of manual and instrument-based chiropractic techniques, she bolsters neurological function by restoring alignment along the spinal column. Her acupuncture treatments, meanwhile, jump-start the body's natural healing processes with thin needles or laser heat trained on key energy meridians, easing the pain caused by anything from sciatica to constrictive bubble-wrap clothing. Similarly, the center's massage therapists help ease skeletal, muscular, and neurological aches with specialized modalities that locate and treat trouble spots.
