FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long does a massage session last?
Most full body massage sessions last 1 hour. This gives the therapist time to address the issues hat the client may have. An hour or an hour and a half session is also beneficial because extra focus can be given to a particular muscle or muscle group. Half hour sessions are also available and usually focus on one area of the body.
What are those "knots"?
Technically, it is the abnormal joining of tissues. Those knots or adhesions" can occur around a site of previous inflammation. Although they don't always cause problems, they can limit flexibility and range of motion in and around a joint capsule.
Are there any restrictions?
Certain conditions may require a physician's approval before receiving a massage. They may include acute inflammation, fever, recent trauma and certain heart conditions, as well as pregnancy. When in doubt, you should always consult with your physician.
Why does my nose get so stuffy when I'm being massaged?
Your body's natural response to the release of muscle toxins is to produce histamines, which cause that "stuffy" effect. Drinking water will flush the toxins from your body and clear your sinuses.
When should I expect results?
Depending on the type of bodywork you choose, in most cases, tangible results can be realized as soon as your massage session is completed. You'll feel rejuvenated, relaxed and pain free. However, chronic conditions may require specific massage techniques and could take up to 4-6 weeks of massage therapy to achieve positive results.
Should I eat before a massage?
It is best not to eat at least a half hour before your session. You don't want to eat a full meal and then lie on a table. Your body is focusing on digestion and needs time. Your digestive system needs blood to help it function properly. Massage takes blood to your extremities away from your digestive tract, and inhibits proper digestion.
Why drink water?
Our muscles hold toxins from stress, medicines, food additives, illness, injury, and the environment Toxins are released into the body during the manipulation of muscle tissue. Drinking water helps our organs flush toxins from the system and assists the prevention of accumulation in our muscle tissue. Flushing toxins from your body can help to alleviate soreness after a massage. Drinking water any time is a good idea, because it helps your organs, muscles, and bones do their job. If you don't drink enough, the organ this is most cheated is your skin, so water consumption can even help you have a healthier appearance!

When stressful situations arise, a massage can help you relax, release and let go. The benefits of massage, regardless of how often received, are countless.
