Whether you sit at a desk, do manual labour, care for loved ones, or go to school; your body is constantly working. The repetitive movements that our daily routines demand can create muscle tensions. Balancing a hectic schedule with work, family, friends while trying to stay active can be stressful. This, in turn, all has a negative effect on your overall health. People around the world use massage therapy to reduce muscle tension, promote mental wellness, achieve relaxation, and enhance their lifestyles. Your therapist will listen to your individual needs to ensure you can stay on track or get back to your best self.

History of Therapeutic Massage

The history of Therapeutic Massage dates as far back as the Ancient Chinese, Ancient Egyptians, and India. Some of the first written evidence of therapeutic massage came from China. Today, these Ancient Chinese texts – now translated to English and various other languages – serve as the basis for modern massage therapy training, as well as acupuncture and acupressure.

What to expect during your Relaxation Massage:

If you have issues of stress, general tension or mild muscle aches and pains, a Relaxation Massage is the right service for you.

Your Relaxation Massage appointment may range from 45 minutes to 2 hours including assessment time. Your treatment will begin with a short one-on-one assessment. This is your opportunity to point out what areas you’d like to work on during your time, as well as identify any special requests or concerns you may have. During your assessment, expect to answer questions regarding your health history including injuries and surgeries, leisure activities, work routines, areas of concern, and pain levels. These questions help the massage therapist align their treatment plan with your specific goals.

Your massage therapist will then leave the room – allowing you to undress to your personal comfort level and cover yourself on the massage table. Make sure to communicate with your therapist throughout your massage. If you are uncomfortable in any way, do not hesitate to let your therapist know.

The modalities a therapist may choose to use are: Light to Medium Pressure Techniques, Soft Tissue Release, Pelvic Balancing, Golgi Tendon Organ Release, Muscle Energy Techniques, Hot and Cold Therapy, and Remedial Exercises. Your individual treatment plan will be determined by what you present both verbally and what is ascertained from palpating your soft tissues. Your therapist is trained to identify the source of your issue and treat as needed.

If your purpose is solely for relaxation, your therapist will focus on delivering a flowing massage with a steady pressure throughout your body. The most common modalities used are: Light to Medium Pressure Techniques and Swedish Relaxation.

In addition, make sure to eat a couple hours before your massage – and not right before. Drinking water leading up to and after your appointment is also a good idea. Consider rescheduling if you have certain skin irritations on the day of or if you have a fever.

Other things you should know about your Relaxation Massage:

If you have more than one area of concern, your therapist will prioritize the chief complaint and create a treatment plan for the time allotted and for follow ups.
