FAQ

Is Massage Therapy Just For Relaxation?

While it is great way to promote relaxation, massage therapy is so much more. Massage helps manage pain, reduce stress, improve circulation, decrease muscle tension, ease breathing difficulties, lower blood pressure, reduce headaches, improve mobility, promote sleep, manage anxiety & depression and helps improve your overall wellness.

How Often Should I Get A Massage?

Depending on your preventative and maintenance needs, one massage per month is the recommended frequency. If your specific condition or needs demand it, your RMT will design a customized treatment plan which may involve more or less frequent massages.

Will I Experience Any Soreness Afterwards?

It’s not uncommon to feel some muscle soreness after a massage. Massage triggers a release of lactic acid stored in tight muscles, which can create a temporary feeling of soreness. The good news? Many people enjoy post-massage heightened energy levels and an increased range of motion.

Can I Get A Massage If I am Already In Pain?

With the appropriate pressure, massage can have a direct effect on the circulatory system, which helps reduce inflammation and helps relieve pain. You are encouraged to communicate with your RMT about your pain/comfort level at any time during your massage.
