About 

Massage

We offer three forms of Massage. Registered Massage Therapy, Holistic Massage and Touch-Less Massage in our Zen Den.

Benefits


  1. Relaxation: Massages are deeply relaxing. They help to release tension in muscles, which can help alleviate physical stress and promote relaxation.

  2. Pain Relief: Massages can help alleviate muscle tension and soreness, reducing pain in areas such as the back, neck, and shoulders.

  3. Improve Circulation: The manipulation of muscles during a massage can improve blood circulation throughout the body, which can promote healing and overall health.

  4. Stress Reduction: Massages can help reduce stress levels by promoting relaxation and triggering the release of endorphins, which are natural mood elevators.

  5. Improve Flexibility: Regular massages can help improve flexibility and range of motion by loosening tight muscles and increasing joint mobility.

  6. Enhance Immunity: Some research suggests that massages may boost the immune system by increasing the activity of white blood cells, which help defend the body against illness and disease.

  7. Better Sleep: Massages can help improve sleep quality by promoting relaxation and reducing stress and anxiety levels.

Cautions 

  1. Infectious Diseases: First and foremost, if you’re battling a contagious illness, it’s best to reschedule your massage. Nobody wants to share germs, and your therapist will thank you for keeping them healthy too.

  2. Fever: A fever is your body’s way of telling you that something’s not quite right. It’s a sign of an underlying issue, and getting a massage while running a fever can make matters worse. So, cozy up with a blanket and some chicken soup instead!

  3. Severe Hypertension: High blood pressure isn’t something to be taken lightly. Deep tissue massages can temporarily raise blood pressure, so if you’re dealing with severe hypertension, consult your healthcare provider before scheduling a massage.

  4. Skin Conditions: Open wounds, rashes, sunburns, or any other skin conditions in the area to be massaged can be problematic. Let your therapist know about these issues so they can adjust their approach accordingly.

  5. Recent Surgeries: If you’ve recently had surgery, it’s essential to wait until you’re fully healed and your doctor gives the green light for massage therapy. Rushing into it can lead to complications.

  6. Pregnancy: While massages can be incredibly beneficial during pregnancy, they should be performed by therapists trained in prenatal massage. Certain pressure points and techniques can be harmful if not used correctly, so always inform your therapist if you’re expecting.

  7. Chronic Health Conditions: If you have chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes, or cancer, consult your healthcare provider before scheduling a massage. They can provide guidance on whether massage therapy is suitable and if any modifications are needed.

  8. Allergies: Be sure to inform your massage therapist of any allergies you have, especially if they use oils or lotions. No one wants an unexpected reaction mid-massage!

  9. Medications: Some medications may affect your body’s response to massage, so it’s crucial to let your therapist know what you’re taking. They can adjust their techniques accordingly.

  10. Recent Injuries: If you’ve had a recent injury, it’s best to wait until you’re on the mend before scheduling a massage. Your therapist can work wonders, but they’re not miracle workers!
