How long of a massage should I book?

A 60-minute is best if you are on a time constraint, don't have many complaints you are seeking help with or if you just want to try it out. A 90-minute is great if you have a lot of problem areas. Or if you'd like a solid focus on a few problem areas and still have the rest of the body massaged. 90-minutes is also ideal for those who need longer for their brain to totally relax.

Is a massage always appropriate?

Is a massage always appropriate?

No, there are several medical conditions that would make massage inappropriate. That’s why it is necessary that you fill out the health history forms and before you begin your session. The massage therapist will ask general health questions to rule out any contraindications to massage. It is very important that you inform the practitioner of any health problems or medications you are taking. If you are under a doctor’s care, it is strongly advised that you receive a written recommendation for massage prior to any session. Your massage therapist may require a recommendation or approval from your doctor.

How will I feel after the massage therapy treatment?

How will I feel after the massage therapy treatment?

Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience freedom from long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity. After an initial period of feeling ‘out of it’ (or massage brain), people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity which can last for days. It is recommended that you drink plenty of water following your massage to continue flushing out the cellular waste products that are released from the soft tissues during your body work. Massage therapists sometimes recommend a hot Epsom salt bath that encourages the release of toxins that may have been stirred up from the massage treatment.

How will a massage feel?

Depending on the techniques used it can range from feeling light and relaxing to very deep and relieving. During a deep tissue massage, you may feel some discomfort when working in knotted areas. Be sure to communicate with your therapist if it becomes too much.

What do I do during a massage therapy treatment?

Relax. Make yourself comfortable. Most people close their eyes to help themselves unwind. Focus on taking deep, conscious breaths. Let the therapist know if you need more or less pressure. If an area feels tense for you, take a few deep breaths and try consciously relaxing the area while the therapist works on it. The therapist will ask you to move or turn over when necessary. Feel free to ask questions at any time.
