Therapeutic Massage

What is therapeutic massage?

Therapeutic massage is a general term that describes any type of massage modality that helps relieve pain, reduce stress, and work on a specific problem, such as a frozen shoulder.

How often should I get a therapeutic massage to get results?

We recommend a minimum of once a month for maintenance, but would recommend once every two weeks for more severe pain.

Therapeutic massage can help with a wide range of problems, including but not limited to, muscle soreness, stiffness, joint pain and circulation.

Pregnancy / Prenatal Massage

What do you do in a pregnancy / prenatal massage?

Pregnancy massage may help relieve some of the aches and pains of pregnancy. But it does have some risks; it isn’t suitable for every person or every pregnancy and is done on a case by case basis.

Is it safe to get a massage while pregnant? Can you lay on your stomach for a massage while pregnant?

It is safe to get a massage while pregnant. I always recommend getting a prenatal massage when they hit the second trimester. I have a specific bolster for my prenatal so that gives the women the opportunity to lay on their stomachs and won’t harm the baby

Cupping Massage

What is cupping massage and what are the benefits?

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction.

People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

Is cupping painful? What should I expect after cupping? Are there any side effects?

Cupping may cause temporary bruising and soreness, depending upon the degree of suction created by the vacuum and the level of internal stagnation.

You should expect to have red marks from the cups, if they turn purple do not be alarmed by that, it will take longer to fade out. Side effects might include discomfort, lightheadedness from getting up to fast from the table, and skin irritations. Please avoid coming in for cupping if you have a sunburn, or any skin irritations.

How often should you do cupping?

We recommend once a month.

Facial Cupping

What is facial cupping and what are the benefits?

Cupping is an alternative therapy that uses suction cups to stimulate your skin and muscles. It can be done on your face or body, but Facial cups are typically smaller and softer. They’re used to gently pull the skin away from deeper layers of fascia. This increases blood flow to the area and rejuvenates the skin without leaving cup marks behind.

It can cause dizziness if you get up too fast from the table. We advise against using facial cupping on broken or inflamed skin: this includes active breakouts, rashes, and sores.

FAQ

Unfortunately we are not covered by insurance, but we can supply you with a receipt that you can turn in to your insurance provider. We also can accept HSA cards.

It can help back pain, because with stress in everyday lives we carry most of it in our muscles. We move our bodies every day so it’s good to have our muscles relaxed in a massage to open up blood flow in them.

Theraputic massage is overall the best massage for chronic pain because it helps to have good blood flow in the body.

We recommend using a licensed massage therapist because they have had the proper training on the human body and how muscles work, and it will benefit you in the long run over getting massage from individuals without that knowledge and ability.
