How Does Massage Therapy Work?
Massage therapy helps the body’s stress response by lowering levels of hormones such as cortisol, and there is evidence that massage therapy enhances immune function.
Receiving massage improves circulation by bringing oxygen and other nutrients to body tissues.
Massage relieves muscle tension, stiffness, pain and increases flexibility and mobility, by clearing lactic acid and other waste.
What should I expect in a Massage Therapy Session from U N W I N D?
Your massage will begin with consultation and a review of your symptoms and medical history. The therapist will also review certain lifestyle issues to determine if these are contributing to symptoms.
When your therapist leaves the room to wash her/his hands and prepare for the session, you will undress according to your personal comfort level. Some clients prefer to keep their undergarments on while others are comfortable with out. You will then lie face down between the sheets on a very comfortable massage table. When the session is shorter, in public, or part of a party, you may be fully dressed and using a special chair.
In most sessions, the massage therapist will use a light oil or lotion to allow a gliding sensation on the skin. A full body massage usually begins with your back and then moves down to the legs and feet. After turning over, the massage continues on your arms, hands, legs, feet, neck, and sometimes abdomen.
While on the massage table you are under a sheet at all times, and only the part of the body being massaged is uncovered.
Will Massage Therapy Hurt?
Sometimes there may be a mild aching when the therapist applies pressure over shortened muscles aka “knots” or injured tissue. Some forms of massage therapy that connect with deeper tissue may cause a sensation that is less than pleasant. If any aspect of the session is uncomfortable, please let your therapist know. Our goal is to bring comfort and reduce stress.
How Will I Feel After a Massage?
FANTASTIC!!! You should feel very relaxed after a treatment. You may experience mild aching that should never last more than a day and staying hydrated will help this to quickly pass.
Are there any times when I should not have massage therapy?
Yes. Here are a few examples:
When you have infectious skin disease, rash, or open wounds
Immediately after surgery unless recommended by your doctor
Immediately after chemotherapy or radiation, unless recommended by your doctor
Those who are prone to blood clots.
If you have heart disease, check with your doctor before having a massage therapy session.
If you are pregnant check with your doctor before getting a massage. At U N W I N D, we have massage therapists who specialize in pre-natal massage.
***ALWAYS let your therapist know if you have bruises, inflamed skin, unhealed wounds, tumors, abdominal hernia, or areas of recent fractures. We can work around these areas.***
