Frequently Asked Questions:


What is Therapeutic Massage?

Therapeutic Massage is the systematic manual manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for the purpose of promoting circulation of the blood and lymph, relaxing the muscles, relief from pain, and the restoration of metabolic balance.  Various techniques can be used.


How often should I receive massage?

The answer to this question varies.  It is recommended that if a specific problem is being treated or you are generally holding excess tension once a week is best.  Approximately every 3 to 4 weeks is recommended for those who are generally active and healthy.


Is it necessary to disrobe completely for a massage?

It is important that you feel comfortable and safe.  If you don`t feel completely comfortable with disrobing, you should not.  Muscles can be worked directly indirectly if you chose not to disrobe entirely.  If you chose to disrobe completely you can rest assured that proper draping techniques will keep you from being exposed, while allowing for direct access to your muscles.


Is deeper better?

Not necessarily.  It is best not to work beyond your tolerance level.  If the work is too deep your body will fight back naturally, inhibiting your muscles ability to relax and heal.


If I fall asleep during my session have I missed out?

If this happens to you, you have not missed out.  Your body is still receiving benefits from the massage and you get the added benefit of some high quality rest and relaxation.


When is massage/ bodywork contraindicated?

There are specific situations where massage and bodywork will not be warranted, including, but not limited to broken bones, recent surgery, injury, inflammation, acute infectious diseases, pain, fever, and blood clots to name a few.  It is important that the client inform the practitioner of their current health status.
