How often should I get a massage?
Once a month is recommended for most as a healthy maintenance program. A more frequent regimen should be in order for those with certain medical issues or more chronic aches and pains.
What do I need to wear?
You can wear whatever you like. There is a changing area and during the massage you will be covered at all times except for the specific area of the body being worked.
What is a trigger point?
A trigger point is a tiny area of irritation in a stressed muscle. Trigger points refer pain, weakness, or numbness to either surrounding or distant areas of muscle tissue. The key clue pointing to a trigger point is when applied pressure to a specific point causes you to feel pain or another sensation someplace else. Trigger points result from trauma, exposure to cold or infection, overuse, misalignment, or chronically contracted muscles.
What do I do during a massage therapy treatment?
Make yourself comfortable. If your therapist wants you to adjust your position, she or he will either move you or will ask you to move what is needed. Otherwise, feel free to adjust your position anytime to make yourself more comfortable.
Many people close their eyes and relax completely during a session, others prefer to talk. It is 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 and at the very least you need to communicate with the therapist about the pressure being given for your comfort.
Why does a massage therapist ask about my medical history and medications?
A responsible massage therapist asks about your medical history. Although massage therapy has many wonderful benefits, it is not appropriate for people with some medical conditions and sometimes must be used cautiously.
