What is Massage?

Massage is a general term for pressing, rubbing and manipulating your skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Massage may range from light stroking to deep pressure. There are many different types of massage, including these common types:

  • Swedish massage. This is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping to help relax and energize you.

  • Deep massage. This massage technique uses slower, more-forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, commonly to help with muscle damage from injuries.

  • Sports massage. This is similar to Swedish massage, but it's geared toward people involved in sport activities to help prevent or treat injuries.

  • Trigger point massage. This massage focuses on areas of tight muscle fibers that can form in your muscles after injuries or overuse.

How Does Massage Benefits me?

Massage is generally considered part of complementary and integrative medicine. It's increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations.

Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension.

While more research is needed to confirm the benefits of massage, some studies have found massage may also be helpful for:

  • Anxiety

  • Digestive disorders

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Headaches

  • Insomnia related to stress

  • Myofascial pain syndrome

  • Soft tissue strains or injuries

  • Sports injuries

  • Temporomandibular joint pain

Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy massage because it often produces feelings of caring, comfort and connection.

Despite its benefits, massage isn't meant as a replacement for regular medical care. Let your doctor know you're trying massage and be sure to follow any standard treatment plans you have.

Does Massage has any risks?

Most people can benefit from massage. However, massage may not be appropriate if you have:

  • Bleeding disorders or take blood-thinning medication

  • Burns or healing wounds

  • Deep vein thrombosis

  • Fractures

  • Severe osteoporosis

  • Severe thrombocytopenia

Discuss the pros and cons of massage with your doctor, especially if you are pregnant or you have cancer or unexplained pain.

Some forms of massage can leave you feeling a bit sore the next day. But massage shouldn't ordinarily be painful or uncomfortable. If any part of your massage doesn't feel right or is painful, speak up right away. Most serious problems come from too much pressure during massage.

What do I do Before my Massage Session?

Please plan to arrive 10-15 minutes before your appointment time. Upon your arrival, you will be greeted and asked to fill out a health history form. This form is where you record your contact information, past/present injuries and other physical conditions we should be made aware of. Your massage therapist will greet you and review the intake form with you. They will inquire about the reasons you are coming in for a massage, your current physical condition and any specific areas in which you are experiencing pain or would like to address during your massage. This will help determine the type of massage that best fits your need.

Your massage therapist will then take you to a private treatment room with a comfortable massage table with a warming blanket and crisp clean sheets. Your massage therapist will leave the room and wait outside while you disrobe to your level of comfort. Remember to remove all jewelry. Some clients prefer to completely disrobe, while some will remain partially clothed. Either option is fine. Once disrobed, you will lie on the massage table, under the top sheet and blanket. The therapist will knock on the door before entering the room.

During your Massage Session

You will always be draped with the sheet during your massage session. The massage therapist will only uncover the part of the body they are working on, ensuring that your modesty is respected at all times. For most techniques, the therapist will use oil. If you have any allergies to nuts or oils, please let the therapist know.

We strive to provide a relaxing and therapeutic experience during your massage. There is usually soft music and dim lighting to enhance the relaxing experience. An additional blanket or pillows are available at your request. Communicate with the therapist about anything that is uncomfortable: such as too much pressure, pain, cold room, table heater too warm, etc. Do not feel obligated to carry on a conversation while getting a massage – you are free to talk or not during a massage

After your Massage Session

At the end of the session, the Therapist will leave the room. Get up from the table slowly and get dressed.

Upon payment, many people wonder about tipping for the massage therapist. Tipping is optional – not expected but always appreciated.

After your massage we encourage you to drink plenty of water. Refrain from vigorous exercise for 24 hours, unless your massage is designed for a pre-determined sporting event. Proper stretching is helpful in maintaining the increased flexibility that you will experience after your massage.

Some people may be a little sore after their massage, especially if it is your first massage in a while. The soreness is similar to exercise soreness and will usually subside in a day. We trust that you will find the increased relaxation, reduced muscular pain and improved ease of movement will make your massage session a wonderful enhancement to your physical health.
