Centuries-old, massage therapy has been used to treat a variety of physical ailments, conditions, and disease process along with promoting general well-being and relaxation. We know a single session of therapeutic massage reduce “state anxiety”, the reaction to a particular situation, while multiple sessions of therapeutic massage positively affect “trait anxiety”, or the general and ongoing stresses associated with one’s lifestyle.
Health benefits include a reduction in blood pressure and heart rate, reduced pain associated with chronic conditions such as neck and back pain, and a positive influence on numerous other physiological and psychological conditions.

What should I wear to get a massage?
Please wear loose and comfortable clothing. Remove all jewelry, watches, etc. and leave at home if possible with your other valuables.
How can I plan for a relaxing experience?
Prepare for your massage by drinking plenty of cool water or other fluids. Avoid eating within two hours of your session to avoid indigestion or abdominal upset during your session. Remember to arrive for your session 10-15 minutes before your appointed time. This will allow time for you to register and the massage therapist to provide you with your fully allotted time on the table.
Massage sessions must end promptly as scheduled so the therapist may answer your questions and prepare the room for the client to follow. Remember to notify the therapist in advance of health problems, along with any specific aching or painful areas needing to be addressed during the session.
