Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of a massage?
The benefits can include increased circulation, lowered blood pressure, strengthened immune system, decreased muscle tension, increased relaxation, and can calm the mind, body and soul. Deep tissue, which is even deeper pressure, frees adhesions that form in and between individual muscles. It also can increase range of motion and flexibility.
How often should I get a massage?
Regular massages help to promote all of the benefits. However sometimes, some muscle tension and damage may require more than one visit. Ideally, one massage a month will ensure the benefits you are looking for.
What are the benefits of your wellness plans?
You receive the ongoing care that your muscles desperately need, at a discounted rate.
Why is drinking water after a massage important?
When you receive massage therapy, there are toxins that are pushed out of your muscles into your fatty tissue and blood stream. If you do not drink water after your massage, those toxins will redeposit into your muscles and joints.
I've never had a massage before. What can I expect?
As a first time client, the first thing you'll do is fill out a client intake form. After that, you will be shown to a room where you can undress to your comfort level. That means removing as much or as little of your clothing as you feel comfortable with. The therapist will usually have some questions about where you are feeling sore, what kind of pressure you'd like, etc. You will then be instructed to lie down on the table, under a sheet and blanket. Your therapist will then leave the room to give you privacy. He or she will return in about five minutes or so to get started.
You are covered at all times. Your therapist has been taught how to remove your arm or leg out from under the sheet and still keep you covered properly to protect your modesty. When you are done, your therapist will then excuse him/herself and let you get dressed in the privacy of your room. At that point, you will leave the room and make your way to the front area. Payment for services rendered is due at the time of service.
