What is Therapeutic Massage?

Historically, therapeutic massage techniques were developed to help ease body pains and promote overall body relaxation. However, as current research has shown Massage Therapy is also an effective treatment for many of the mental and physical ailments present in today’s stress-filled society. Therapeutic massage promotes good circulation which, when received regularly maintains the muscular integrity of the body and allows the mind to drop into a self-healing state.

From a rehabilitative point of view, Range of Motion in the joints can be improved by regular massage and focused stretching, resulting in less pain and fatigue in that area.

What to expect

Are There Any Medical Conditions That Would Make Massage or Bodywork Inadvisable? Yes. That’s why it’s imperative that, before you begin your initial session, we ask you to fill out a health history form. It is very important that you inform your Therapist of any health problems or medications you are taking.

Must I Be Completely Undressed?

Most massage and bodywork techniques are traditionally performed with the client unclothed; however, it is entirely up to you what you want to wear. You should undress to your level of comfort. You will be properly draped at all times to keep you warm and comfortable. Only the area being worked on will be exposed.

How Will I Feel After the Massage or Bodywork Session?

Most people will feel very relaxed. Some experience freedom from long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness and greater productivity. Since toxins are released from your soft tissues during a massage, it is recommended you drink plenty of water following your massage.
