How does Massage Therapy work?

Massage techniques may either stimulate or calm the body’s muscles and tissues to create a desired effect.

When massaging soft tissue, electrical signals are transmitted both to the local area and throughout the body. These signals, in combination with the healing properties of touch, help heal damaged muscle, stimulate circulation, clear waste products via the lymphatic system, boost the activity of the immune system, reduce pain and tension, and induce a calming effect.

Massage may also enhance well being by stimulating the release of endorphins (natural painkillers and mood elevators) and reducing levels of certain stress hormones.

+ Common Questions About Massage Therapy +

Can anyone receive massage therapy?
Yes, massage therapy is appropriate for individuals of all ages, including infants, children, and the elderly; however, there are some conditions for which massage therapy is not appropriate. A qualified Massage Therapist is trained to recognize these cases.
What should I expect during my first massage therapy visit?

Your massage therapist may require you to fill out a health history form. Afterward the therapist will begin by asking you general questions to establish what areas you would like worked on, if there are any conditions needing to be addressed, and to determine if massage is appropriate for you. Your massage therapist may perform certain assessments and testing to evaluate your condition and to see if you have any presenting complaints.

What do I wear during my massage?
During your massage therapy treatment you can expect to have your privacy respected. Your therapist will leave the room so that you may disrobe and cover yourself on the table. You may remove as little of your clothing as you wish. Shorts may be brought but are not required. During the treatment, you will be draped with a blanket and sheet so that only the part of your body being treated is uncovered.
What can I expect after a massage treatment?
Some tenderness or discomfort can occur the day after a massage treatment. If you are concerned about the level of the discomfort or it’s more than 24 hours after your massage, please contact your massage therapist for advice. Subsequent treatments can be altered to change the amount of pressure or the techniques previously used to achieve the desired results. It is imperative for you to give your therapist feedback to make any changes required in the future.
