We understand stress, tension, trigger points, pain and daily discomforts are associated with the daily abuse we put our bodies through from work and stress. We take pride in knowing our services provide the relief people so desperately need and seek for their optimal health and well being.
Must I Be Completely Undressed During A Table Massage? No, however the choice is up to our clients. The massage professional will leave the room to wash their arms and hands while you dress down to your comfort level and cover up on the table with the top sheet and cover. Most massages are traditionally performed with the client unclothed; however, you may decide what amount of clothing you prefer to wear for your own comfort. You will be properly draped at all times during the massage spa session. When the session is completed the massage professional will again leave the room while you dress.
What will massage and bodywork feel like? A general Swedish massage is light to medium pressure with broad flowing strokes which will help calm your nervous system and relax exterior muscle tension. Swedish combination massage is light to medium pressure with some deep tissue applied to a couple areas of your choice. During a deep tissue massage, the strokes will be slowed down and increased pressure will be applied deeper into the muscle tissues. During deep tissue/NMT, the connective tissues and trigger points will be focused on for tension and pain relief. We encourage good communication during our massage therapy sessions. Pressure should never go beyond a hurt so good! You should communicate immediately if you feel any discomfort so another approach may be taken.
What Are the Benefits of Massage and Bodywork? Massage and bodywork can help release chronic muscular tension and pain, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce mental and physical fatigue and stress, and promote faster healing of injured muscular tissue and improve posture. Massage and bodywork is also known to promote better sleep, improve concentration, reduce anxiety and create an overall sense of well-being.
How Will I Feel After the Massage and Bodywork Session? 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 slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity, which can last for days or even longer. Since toxins are released from your soft tissues during a massage, it is recommended you drink plenty of water following your massage. Sometimes soreness in muscle tissues (like you just worked out) can be experienced however, you should also experience tension relief.
