Is massage painful?
 
Massage should not inflict pain, but a good massage may elicit an awareness of existing pain. When waste products and emotional tensions are stored in the muscles we experience pain. Massage strokes are designed to help clear the body of these problem areas. As this happens you should feel no more than a strong tingling sensation. You should never receive more pressure than what is comfortable.
 
What can I expect for my first massage?
 

Once you arrive for your appointment you will be asked to fill out an intake form. This form is an important part of creating the best plan for your massage experience.  Based on your intake form I will ask you about your reasons for getting a massage, your current physical condition, medical history, and lifestyle, stress and pain levels ect.

You’ll be asked to undress in private and drape yourself with a sheet and blanket provided for you (underwear is left on or off at your discretion); then you’ll lie down on a comfortably padded massage table. Only the part of the body being worked will be uncovered and your modesty is respected.

You can expect a peaceful and comfortable environment for the massage. I will establish a connection by using rhythmic breathing and soft soothing touch before beginning the first strokes.

For the period of time agreed upon you’ll have the unique experience of having all your muscles kneaded and stroked in a full-body massage, or in specific areas in case of a session oriented to localized injury pain or tightness, or sports readiness.

 

 

Is it good to receive a massage on a regular basis?
 

Absolutely!!

“Massage has its greatest benefits over time and most doctors and therapist say the more often you get a massage the better you feel.” NEWYORK TIMES quote

The therapeutic effects of massage are cumulative. From one session to the next, you are able to relax more and more as the chronic patterns of stress in the body are released. These changes are readily felt in your day-to-day life, as well.
