Yes. That’s why it’s imperative that, before you begin your session, you notify your Massage Therapist of any health conditions that you may have 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 or bodywork prior to any session. Depending on the condition, approval from your doctor may be required. Keep in mind that most types of massage are the least invasive forms of healing for the body and mind.
It is similar to getting a tune up or oil change for a car! Most people feel very relaxed both in body and mind. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness and greater productivity which can last for days.
A typical full-body session will include work on your back, shoulders, arms, legs, feet, hands, head, neck and face.
Prior to the massage, feel free to ask your Massage Therapist any questions about the technique or anything else that may come up. During the massage, make yourself comfortable. Taking deep long breaths helps clear your mind and further relax your muscles. Your Massage Therapist will either gently move you or tell you what is needed throughout the session (such as lifting your arm). Many people just close their eyes and completely relax. Communication is encouraged if/when more or less pressure is needed, another blanket, or anything else relevant to the session. If you have any questions regarding the session or about the particular technique you are receiving, feel free to ask.
There are many types of massage and bodywork; various techniques utilize different strokes, including long gliding, application of pressure to specific points, rocking movement, posture and movement re-education, and more. We can discuss which methods may be most appropriate upon your intake in person. The more massage you receive the better you will get at knowing what your likes and needs are. Hopefully you become a pro!
We encourage you to be as detailed with what you are wanting during your session. You can customize this massage to work with your comfort level and goals to suit your unique needs.
For your 1st visit, please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your session time for initial paperwork and intake. If this is not a first visit, you may arrive 5 minutes early or on time (depending on any changes that need to be communicated to your Massage Therapist).
We do not have a dress code in general, however when preparing for your massage you are given the option to undress to your comfort level. For most this means down to their under garments (without a bra for access to back). Our Massage Therapists are thoroughly trained in draping so that only the area of focus (back, arm, leg) will be exposed at time of massage. To avoid getting oil in your hair, bring a hair tie.
No need to worry about what kind of massage to choose (Aside from MFR or Cupping) – we have you arrive early in order for your therapist to meet with you and do an in depth intake to discuss details so that we can customize your session. Generally we integrate different techniques in your session depending on what is occurring for you. Your job is to choose the duration of time.
30 minute session is intended for one area of focus work (upper body, legs, shoulders, etc.)
60 minute session can address a couples specific areas and allow time to include brief full body work.
90 minute session will address the whole body in a general full body session and allow time to address 2-3 specific areas.
Keep in mind, we do offer other durations of time: 45-min, 75-min & 2-hour Please ask if you don’t see them listed.
There are many benefits in receiving regular massage or even once in a while. Massage Therapy can help release chronic muscular tension and pain, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce mental and physical fatigue and stress, promote faster healing of injured muscular tissue, improve posture, and reduce blood pressure. Massage Therapy is also known to promote better sleep, improve concentration, reduce anxiety and create an overall sense of well-being.
