Massage is generally considered part of complementary and alternative medicine. It's increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations.
Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension.
While more research is needed to confirm the benefits of massage, some studies have found massage may also be helpful for:
Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy massage because it often produces feelings of caring, comfort and connection.
"Nora is very friendly and professional. She makes me feel at ease and really tailors each massage to my specific needs. I have gone to her for almost 5 years now. She is very knowledgeable in fitness and healthy eating as well. It is wonderful to have such a well rounded therapist. As long as you are specific with your pressure points and needs, she can customize to your liking. ENJOY! "
My husband and I have utilized Nora for massage therapy for quite some time and we appreciate her personal approach. She has the ability to recognize a variety of muscular and structural problems, such as misalignment, that have led to pain, and successfully treat these and other issues. Her wide range of experience allows her to utilize many techniques to provide relief from pain and overall structural health. I have also received pregnancy massages from her as well. I highly recommend her.
I have seen Nora for years now (I believe going on 4 years) and she is amazing. She listens and ultimately gets out all my kinks and for someone with a wrecked back she knows how to loosen it up. I am so appreciative for all she does for me and my wife and I always recommend her to anyone that is looking for a top notch massueuse!
Q: Do I have to get completely undressed?
A: No, you can undress to your level of comfort. You will always be modestly draped whatever your level of undress.
Q: What if I don't want massage on a particular part of my body?
A: Before your massage, let your therapist know which parts of your body you want them to avoid. For example, many clients aren’t comfortable with having their abdominal area massaged. Your massage therapist will know how to avoid any sensitive areas you identify and still give you a therapeutic experience.
Q: Is it ok to talk during a massage session?
A: You should always feel free to express any discomfort when undergoing a massage. However, avoid intense chatting with your massage therapist during your session; this can lead to increased muscular tension and limit the effectiveness of your massage experience.
The amount of communication you should engage in during your massage depends on your goals for the session. If you want a relaxing massage, talk as little as necessary and let your mind and body enter a meditative state. You can even practice mindful breathing, which lowers muscular tension and increases the benefits of your massage. On the other hand, if you’ve asked your massage therapist to use increased pressure and deep-tissue techniques to help you recover from an injury, communication is key. Be sure to give your practitioner regular feedback on the amount of pressure you need and which specific areas feel painful or tight.
Q: What happens if I fall asleep during my massage?
A: It’s quite common for people to fall asleep during relaxing massages. Massage therapists typically take this as a compliment and a sign that they’re providing maximum relaxation to their clients. Enjoy your massage experience and don’t expect yourself to stay awake and alert at all times. Many clients allow their bodies and minds to “reset” in deeply relaxing states.
Q: What if I my stomach growls, or something worse?
A: Massage therapists create “judgment-free zones” with their clients and understand that massages can sometimes lead to clients making strange noises, passing gas, or even have deeply emotional experiences. If you feel the need to laugh, cry, or even tremble, your practitioner will understand and may ask you if you want to continue the massage or take a break.
Q: Why do I need to drink water after a massage?
A: You should drink it to make sure your muscles are fully hydrated because they feel and work their best when they are. Sometimes if you do not drink enough water, you may experience increased soreness the next day.
