Should you have additional questions, please feel free to contact me.
How will massage therapy benefit me?
With professional massage therapy you can experience relief from muscular tension and pain, receive an increased range of motion and a reduction of mental stress levels. Massage is a natural healing process that can deliver both physical and emotional benefits. Each treatment is specifically customized to address your area of needs.
How often will I need treatments?
Your body can let you know. Some people require only a few sessions to treat a specific problem, while others become regular users of massage therapy as both proactive and preventative healthcare measures. Massage can help maintain good muscle tone, flexibility, and help to correct and reduce the possibility of muscular injuries.
How old does a person need to be to receive massage therapy?
Any age. Massage therapy treatments are effective from birth until palliative care stages.
Which areas of my body get massaged?
Areas of the body to be focused on, will generally be determined depending on the reason for your visit. A typical full-body massage entails back, neck, shoulder, arms, legs, feet, and hands.
Will I experience any soreness following a massage therapy treatment?
Most people report feeling very relaxed, and often experience significant relief from aches, pains and stress immediately after a massage session. However some people, especially those who require deep-tissue massage, will typically experience mild muscle soreness which may last a day or two. Once the soreness is gone, they often notice heightened energy levels and an increased range of motion.
Do I have to remove all of my clothes?
Traditional full-body massage treatments work best administered directly, without the barrier of clothing on the areas massaged. During a session, you will be fully covered with a sheet/blanket, and only the area of your body that is being worked on is uncovered. It is imperative however, that you are comfortable during the session, and so the decision to remove articles of clothing is entirely up to you. Before and after the session, you will undress and dress in complete privacy.
