What are Some Benefits of Massage?
Among the many benefits, massage encourages the body to move from being highly activated into "rest and digest" mode. Massage lowers blood pressure, aids in the circulation of lymph and blood, relieves stress, reduces pain, improves joint mobility and flexibility, reduces post-surgical and post-injury adhesions and swelling, and improves psychological and emotional well-being.
When Should I NOT Receive a Massage?
Certain conditions warrant precautions in doing massage. In some cases the massage should be postponed until the condition has subsided (eg fever, infection) or until the therapist can get a note from your doctor saying massage is okay.
Do I Need to Fully Disrobe for my Session?
Clients can undress to their level of comfort. Some clients disrobe fully while others feel more secure keeping on their underwear. You will be properly and securely covered and draped at all times. Only body parts that are being worked on will be uncovered and private areas are never exposed.
Is it Okay to Talk?
Many people close their eyes and relax completely during a session; others prefer to talk. It's up to you. It is your massage, and whatever feels natural to you is the best way to relax. Do not hesitate to ask questions at any time
