How will massage therapy benefit me?

Treatments are specifically tailored to meet your needs.

Question:

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. Massage can help maintain good muscle tone, flexibility, and help correct muscular injuries.

What do I need to bring with me to my first massage therapy appointment?

Question:

How old does a person need to be to receive massage therapy?

Answer:

Any age. Massage therapy treatments are effective from birth until palliative care stages.

Question:

Which regions of my body get massaged?

Answer:

The therapist will ask you what you want to get out of the session. You will also be asked to describe any chronic problems that you are experiencing. This will determine the appropriate regions of your body that need attention. A typical full-body massage involves your back, neck, shoulders, arms, legs, feet, and hands.

Question:

Will I experience muscle soreness following a massage therapy treatment?

Answer:

Most people report feel very relaxed, and often experience significant relief from aches, pains and stress after a massage session. However some people, especially those who require deep-tissue massage, 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.

Question:

I'm not sure I'm comfortable with a stranger touching me.

Answer:

It is not uncommon for first-time clients to be apprehensive with the personal nature of massage therapy. Most clients lose this apprehension within the first few minutes of treatment. Massage therapists are trained professionals who respect your feelings and go out of their way to allow you to feel comfortable.  All treatment techniques used are modified and administered within your level of comfort.  Your therapist is a professional and you are welcome to discuss your concerns and any questions with your therapist at any time; before, during, or after your treatment time.  

QUESTION:

Do I have to take off all of my clothes?

Answer:

One of the keys to the success of a your massage therapy session is your ability to relax and feel comfortable. Therefore, the decision is yours; remove only the articles of clothing that you are comfortable with removing. 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, and only the area of your body that is being worked on is uncovered.  Before and after the session, you will undress and dress in complete privacy. 

Question:

Will my extended healthcare plan cover the costs of massage therapy treatments?

Answer:

Yes. Most extended healthcare plans include massage therapy and some even have on-line billing. Some plans ask you to first receive a physician's referral. Please contact your plan provider to determine the specifics of your coverage.

 

Question:

Do you offer massage gift certificates?

Answer:

Yes ---   A therapeutic massage is a great way to show someone how much you care!
