Wellness and Relaxation

Massage therapy can provide, even the healthiest person with these amazing benefits.

  • Calming the central nervous system
  • Elongating tight muscles
  • Loosening toxins from the tissues for elimination
  • Boosting immunity

If you’re just looking to enhance your health or want occasional respite from everyday stress and strain, scheduling a massage once or twice a month will yield great benefits.
For those who work in a high-stress environment or have daily activities that risk causing repetitive-motion injuries or postural issues, weekly sessions might be best. Keep in mind that the effects of regular massage are cumulative and spacing them too far apart might leave you back at square one every time.

Our Approach

Optimizing Athletic Performance

For athletes, massage can both enhance performance and reduce the risk of injury by balancing muscle groups and increasing joint mobility. The process of lengthening contracted muscles and releasing myofascial adhesions is rarely a one-shot deal, and serious athletes may need two or more sessions a week to stay in top shape. Many professional teams have therapists on staff for that very reason. As a casual athlete or someone who likes to stay active, your needs will depend on the intensity and frequency of your workouts.

Pain Management

Overly contracted muscles often cause chronic pain, from migraine to sciatica, and more. In general, weekly sessions are recommended, but much depends on how you feel. If your pain starts to return within a few days, it’s time for another massage. Our Therapists may also suggest a stretching and mobility protocol to maintain muscle balance longer between sessions. 

Injury and Surgery Recovery

Massage is often recommended after injury or surgery. It can help:

  • Reduce pain, minimizing the need for pain medication
  • Inhibit swelling by moving lymph
  • Break up scar tissue
  • Expedite the healing process by increasing the flow of blood and oxygen

Consult your physician before getting a massage to confirm the best treatment option. For example, deep tissue massage is not recommended for someone on blood thinners or with an acute injury. Lymphatic drainage or relaxation massage could be helpful.
