What is the Purpose of a Massage?
The main purpose of massage is to increase the
oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. Massage
shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic
acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes. It increases circulation without
increasing heart load. It stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them
supple and pliable. Massage also stimulates the skin and nervous system
and soothes the nerves themselves at the same time. It reduces stress, both
emotional and physical, and is suggested in a regular program for stress
management. It also has many specific medical uses.
Christy and her team of therapists are trained in multiple massage modalities including swedish, deep tissue, myofascial release, shiatsu, hot stone, stretching, and acupressure.
When choosing us for your massage needs, you will receive an integrative massage incorporating the different modalities required to give you the most beneficial results.
How often should I return
Client's needs vary so the number of treatments recommended will vary according to individual need, however it is generally advised that any benefits gained
from massage will be lost within 30 days. To maintain results it is best to have a massage at least once every 30 days. If you are treating a specific condition, more treatments may be recommended.
