About Therapeutic Massage

Massage therapy benefits both body and spirit.  The body has only one mechanism to deal with stress: the fight-or-flight syndrome.  The release of stress hormones causes muscle tension, elevated blood pressure, and a reduction in the body's ability to heal itself.  The body meets all stress with the same response, whether it be the birth of a new baby, moving into a new home, the loss of a job, death in the family, or physical trauma.  Massage therapy is the perfect solution to this response as it addresses a variety of health conditions.  Stress-related tension is believed by many experts to account for 80-90 percent of disease.  Massage has been proven beneficial in treating cancer-related fatigue, sleep disorders, diabetes, immunity suppression, age-related disorders, eating disorders, smoking cessation and depression, to name just a few.

  • Relieves migraine pain and decreases the need for medication

Frequently Asked Questions

Will it hurt?
Nothing we do is painful to healthy tissue.  If you experiece some discomfort, there was something wrong with the tissue before we started.  However, some remedial work can cause some discomfort.  Some modalites are more likely to be uncomfortable than others.  Your therapist will work with you to minimize any discomfort.  Many clients actually sleep through their sessions.

Do I have to get naked?
Though most people do disrobe, it is not a requirement.  Your therapist will work to accommodate your comfort level.  We always use a drape and modesty is always respected.  Many techniques can be employed on a fully clothed client.  Your comfort is the bottom-line and you never need to disrobe beyond your comfort level.  Just as we ask to be treated professionally, we will extend the same courtesy to you.

Is massage a luxury?
Not at all.  Massage can accomplish many beneficial changes in your health such as alleviating chronic pain, increasing joint range-of-motion, and improving posture.
