The goal is to soothe and relax the mind and body while eliminating toxins and the letting go of tension from the muscles. By combining deep tissue techniques with a rhythm of gentle rocking, waves of soothing effleurage and petrissage strokes, and utilizing assisted stretching or applying a customized massage, we have developed a unique style that leaves even the most tense clients in a state of euphoric drowsiness while loosening tense muscles and increasing the body’s flexibility.
HOW DOES MASSAGE THERAPY WORK?
WHY DO PEOPLE GET MASSAGE THERAPY?
WHAT A TYPICAL MASSAGE THERAPY SESSION IS LIKE
A typical massage therapy session is between 60 and 90 minutes. Your massage will begin with a brief consultation and review of symptoms, medical history, and lifestyle.
You will be asked to undress (many people keep their underwear on) while the massage therapist is out of the room, and lie face down under a sheet on a padded massage table.
The massage therapist will make sure that you are ready before entering the room. The massage therapist re-enters the room and will then adjust the face rest and pillows to ensure that you are comfortable and properly positioned. Tell the massage therapist if you are too warm or cold.
The massage therapist uses a light oil or lotion on the skin and begins the massage. A full body massage usually begins on the back and then moves down to the legs. You will then be asked to turn over so you are face up. The massage continues on your arms, legs, neck, and abdomen.
You are underneath the sheet at all times, only the part of the body being treated at any one time is uncovered.
After the massage, the massage therapist leaves the room so you can get changed.
Take your time getting up. If you sit or stand too quickly you may feel lightheaded or dizzy.
