How often should I receive massages?

Biweekly, every three weeks, or 4 weeks but it optimally depends on the clientele and the severity of their condition. If the client is in severe pain or discomfort, then 1x per week can be helpful. However, remember, our goal is not just to provide temporary relief, but to support your long-term health and vitality through personalized massage therapy. If you have any further questions or would like to schedule a massage appointment, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.

What are some expectations clients should expect after treatments?

Muscle releases, relaxation, a new learning experience by being able to be more aware of their bodies after treatments. Sometimes the massage work will be subtle, kind of like a tingling feeling, different sensation, but lasting effects after treatments.

What type of massages do you offer?

Fascia work, positional trigger point release, Swedish, deep tissue massage

What sets you apart from other massage therapists?

Our massage treatments go beyond basic relaxation. Our massage therapists help you understand your body's healing rate by working along with our team of practitioners to determine the root cause of symptoms. The massage therapists will address your specific health needs by restoring your body with various massage techniques and developing treatment plans to benefit your healing potential and other modalities. By maximizing your healing ability, massage and acupuncture honor your body and help it remember how to function again naturally.

What are the common health issues that you treat?

Lower back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, chronic pain, inflammation, poor circulation, and stress

How do you customize massages for individual patients?

We believe that every body is unique, which is why we take the time to understand your concerns, goals, and any areas of discomfort before your session. Whether you're seeking relaxation, pain relief, or improved mobility, we personalize each massage to address your specific needs.

What should I expect during my treatment?

The massage therapist will bring you to the room and ask what type of massage you are looking for; Swedish (relaxation) or deep tissue and confirm the length (60 or 90 minutes). They will ask what area(s) you would like focused on and if there are any areas you do not want to work on. He/she will also go over health history - previous surgeries, allergies, anything that the therapist should be aware of (ex. diabetes, neuropathy, etc). The therapist will then direct you to undress to your level of comfort and lay on the table face up (supine) or face down (prone) while they step out of the room. Once the massage starts they will check in with you to see if the pressure is good periodically (and it’s ok to ask for less or more!).

What is the difference between Swedish (relaxation) and deep tissue?

Swedish (relaxation) is generally a full body massage with lighter pressure; it encourages blood flow, relaxation, and relieves stress and pain. It can re-energize the body and improve health. Deep tissue applies more/deeper pressure to relieve tension (knots/adhesions) in the muscles and fascia. Deep tissue typically focuses on 1-2 areas of discomfort/tension.

Is it ok to talk during my session?

It is totally up to you! Most therapists typically don’t encourage talking during sessions (except to check in on the pressure) so they can focus on giving you the best massage and you can focus on relaxing.

Is it painful?

While massages aren’t meant to be painful, there are times you will feel some discomfort/pain during a deep tissue massage and that’s totally normal. It is also normal to feel tired/sore/stiff following the massage - this is due to the increased blood, lymph flow and the body’s natural healing response after soft tissue damage (breaking up scar tissue, spasms, adhesions, etc). Drink plenty of water and let the body do it’s thing!

Is it normal to fall asleep?

Most people usually do! You won’t be the first and certainly not the last if that happens. We’re used to it.

Is it ok to ask for more/less pressure?

Please do! While there are times we might say no to more pressure if it could hurt the therapist/client, we want you to feel like you’re getting the massage you came for. Just remember - too much pressure can sometimes have the reverse effect and cause you to tense up, hold your breath, or “guard” your muscles which is the opposite of what we want to happen. More isn’t always better.

What kind of training did massage therapist recieve?

While licensing requirements vary state to state - Massachusetts requires 650 hours of supervised classroom and clinical time from an approved school. Some states also require passing a nationally approved test for licensure.

Should I take off my underwear?

You can undress to your level of comfort; we generally have clients remove everything except underwear.

Should I say something if a certain area hurts?

Yes! We encourage you to let us know if there is an area that is hurting and causing too much discomfort. While there are times it may be uncomfortable during a deep tissue massage, we do not want you to be in pain so that you are guarding, bracing, or holding your breath.

What type of oil or lotion is used?

Each therapist is different; here we use Biotone unscented lotion in case anyone has allergies.

Is it better to do a full body massage or focus area?

Again, totally up to you! Some people just want a full body massage to relax. If you are looking for focus area(s) to be worked on - we may need to just focus on that area for that session. Also remember, if you are requesting certain focus areas - we may not have enough time for the rest of the body and other parts might have to be omitted for that session.

What are the benefits of massage?

Relieve pain, tension, stress, stiffness; improve mood and sleep; increase motion and flexibility; improve blood and lymph flow; reduce inflammation, scar tissue, adhesions, spasms.

When should I not get a massage?

Contraindications for massage are when you’re sick, fevers, skin conditions (contagious or rashes, burns, open sores), infections, under the influence, immediately after major surgery, metastatic cancer, experiencing pitting edema, numbness, severe headaches, sepsis, advanced heart or kidney disease, advanced vascular (circulatory) complications, severe atherosclerosis, organ failure.
