Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy is a massage session that takes place in a warm, comfortable and quiet area as you lie on a specially-designed table. Sometimes, soft music is played for relaxation. A professional massage therapist with proper training will perform the massage therapy.

Usually, massage therapy is done with the client disrobed. It is, however, up to the individual whether or not to undress. Through the massage therapy session, you will be properly covered. Typically, a full body session includes therapeutic massage on your back, arms, legs, feet, hands, head, neck and shoulders. Depending on the massage therapy technique utilized, your body should become relaxed as the session progresses. Some massage therapy methods include Swedish massage, deep-tissue massage, reflexology, and acupressure/Shiatzu massage. Each of these massage therapies uses variant strokes, posture and pressure application to specific points. Always ask your practitioner about which technique he or she utilizes. In most cases, a massage therapy session lasts about an hour. For optimal relaxation, try a 90-minute massage therapy visit.

Massage therapy is beneficial as it relieves chronic muscular tension and pain, improves circulation and joint mobility, reduces mental and physical fatigue and promotes help in healing, including lowering of blood pressure. After massage therapy, many individuals experience relaxation and freedom from aches and pains due to tension or repetitive activities. Increased energy, mental awareness and improved productivity usually lasts for days after massage therapy. The advantages of massage therapy are infinite.
