Do People Fall Asleep? & Other Massage Q's
Your Massage Questions Answered!
Do people fall asleep during a massage?
Yep, some folks do, or at least doze off on occasion. Something about a warm, dark room, relaxing music and nurturing hands can certainly induce a snooze. However, many clients try their best to stay awake so they don't miss anything! It's fine with us either way.

Am I the tightest person you've ever worked on?
Odds are--No. All bodies are different, and all humans put their bodies through stresses that create tension and muscle knots. Some are, indeed, in worse condition than others, but those speedbumps you feel us run over during a massage are quite common.

 

Why is that tight?
Well...we don't know! In all seriousness, we can certainly try to help you narrow down what activities or events may have created tension, muscle knots or pain. But to know exactly why an area on your body is tight, we'd have to hire a private eye to follow you around and see what you've been up to.

Do your hands get tired?
Unfortunately, yes. Yes they do. But we have ways of using them that are less strenuous, and can use other "tools," such as elbows and forearms, to work with. We stretch, we ice, and we get massage, too!

Does every massage therapist do the same thing?
No way! We are all very different in experiences, education, general touch, demeanor, what techniques we like and offer-all these things make us each unique. Shop around, and find a therapist that fits your needs.
5 Tips for Getting a Better Massage
You massage therapist is dedicated to providing you with a relaxing, therapeutic experience, but there are a few things you can do on the receiving end to get the most out of your massage.
  1. Don't worry. We don't care if you forgot to shave. (Bathing, on the other hand, kind of a big deal!)
     
  2. Do your homework! If you suffer from pain, whether chronic or acute, massage can likely be a big help. BUT it's imperative you do whatever you can on your own, such as stretches, exercises, or rest to help speed recovery or change the way your body feels. You live in your body, we only get to take care of it in small doses. It's a team effort!
     
  3. RE. LAX. You may be tempted to help us move your arm, hold it up in the air for us, or flex your biceps so we know how strong you are...but it's really MUCH better for everyone if you just relax! It actually makes our work easier, and your body will respond a lot better if you can "melt into the table," as we like to say.
     
  4. Speak up! Your massage therapist should check in from time-to-time to make sure you are comfortable and happy with what they are doing. BUT you should always speak up and let him or her know if you want more/less pressure, your feet are too ticklish to relax, or if you have dinner plans and don't want your hair messed up tonight (It's a shame to miss a good scalp massage though!) We pinkie promise not to get offended if you want us to make any changes during your session. You should feel like every minute was worth your time and money!
     
  5. Become a regular. Studies show that getting regular massage improves quality of life. For anything from injury and chronic pain, to anxiety and depression, making the choice to add regular massage to your lifestyle is a worthy investment in your health and well-being.
