The first written records of massage were found in China and Egypt, dating back as far as 2700 BCE to ancient texts still influencing alternative medicine training today. Western medicine adopted the practice of massage in the 1800s, and the practices of Swedish massage and Japanese Shiatsu massage are most common. Today, the desire for the treatment of massage is widespread – from professional athletes to cancer patients.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
Massage therapy manipulates the body’s soft tissues to promote and maintain health. Through a series of general questions, your massage therapist will assess and test your condition to see if massage is appropriate for you. Individual attention is given to emphasize relaxation, stress reduction, muscle recovery, and an overall restoring of well-being.
What can I expect during the treatment?
After your initial assessment, the massage therapist will step out of the room so you may undress to your comfort level and lie on a massage table, covered by a sheet or large towel. Make sure you are comfortable and let the therapist know if you are not. During your massage, focus on relaxing your mind, body, and breath. Your therapist will ask if you are feeling any discomfort. Remember, communication is key to getting the most of your treatment. Once the massage is over, the therapist will step out so you may redress.
What are the results?
Massage therapy supports a more efficient immune system and is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain, and muscle tension. You may also experience better sleep, less anxiety, and better digestion. For athletes, massage therapy before and after exercise allows muscles to be more pliable, reduces muscle spasms, and enables muscle recovery which reduces the risk of injury.
Is it safe?
Massage therapy is very safe. Side effects are extremely rare, but we do advise clients to consult with their physician if they have any prior medical issues.
