MASSAGE THERAPY

How Can a Relaxation Massage Help You?

A relaxation massage is a general full body massage designed to promote calm and rest. As tensions in the skin, muscle and soft tissue structures are eased, the body’s parasympathetic nervous system is activated which reduces stress and facilitates healing. A relaxation massage supports an overall feeling of well-being. It is a wonderful way to melt away stress, or to give oneself a nurturing treat.

What is Targeted Therapeutic Massage?

A therapeutic massage addresses specific problems with muscles, fascia and soft tissue. Special attention is paid to sore or tight muscles, and tension patterns that may affect other areas of the body. In addition to standard soft tissue manipulation, more specialized mobilization techniques are utilized, including neuromuscular therapy and mayofascial techniques. Therapeutic massage helps to eliminate deep rooted tension and pain, dysfunctions due to postural imbalances, and aids soft tissue recovery from injury or surgery.

Chair Massage at Your Event

Chair massage is proven to enhance and improve performance at the workplace, in schools, and at athletic events. It is also a wonderful way to feel relaxed and refreshed within a few minutes at public or special events. Clients remained clothed, and there are no oils or creams. The massage chair is ergonomically designed, and enables the massage therapist to target the back, shoulders, neck and arms.

Chair massages usually is offered at intervals of
5, 10 or 15 minutes.

Chair Massage Testimonial

"Rachel and Ian have both visited our college campus and done AMAZING massage work for our students, faculty, and staff. Every single person left the chair feeling relaxed and wanting more. The days that chair massages are offered are some of the most highly anticipated days on campus! Not only are they flexible in scheduling appointments, but they take each individual client’s request into account as well. I am so thankful to bring their massage services to our campus, especially at such an affordable price! They are a couple of the best massage therapists in town for sure."

Is There Any Condition for Which Massage Shouldn't Be Used?

There are certain situations where application of massage would not be recommended or the massage would need to be adapted. 

Anyone who has a compromised circulatory system (heart or blood vessels), or unregulated blood pressure requires a signed doctors note.

It is important to disclose if:

  • you are pregnant

  • you have blood clots, have a history of heart attack/stroke/aneurysm, or if you are on blood thinning medications

  • you have altered or limited sensations for pain

  • you have contagious skin or nail conditions

  • you have varicose veins

  • you are sick with a cold, flu, or any other contagious illness.

Please be aware that certain medications can alter the body's tissues, functions, and/or your ability to register pain.  Massage can effect how your body interacts with those medications.  All medications need to be disclosed to your therapist.

How Many Massage Therapy Sessions Will I Need?

Response to massage varies from individual to individual and condition to condition. Your response is uniquely your own and can't be compared to anyone else — even those cases that may appear to be similar to your own. The number of sessions needed varies widely — from just one up to three or more a week over the course of several weeks.

Some people in good health don’t need intensive attention, and prefer to receive massage for regular maintenance. It should never be underestimated how much you help yourself with preventative care. Why wait until you are sick until you seek assistance with your health? Occasional regular massage not only feels relaxing, but it is always working to maintain your well-being.
