yes, massage feels great! but there’s a lot more to it than that, with its many physical and mental benefits. when you look at what it can do, it’s not
surprising that massage is the most-requested spa service and that americans spend roughly $6 billion a year on therapeutic massage.
although most people get massages to relax, reduce stress, and relieve aches and pains, massage therapists are trained to focus on specific needs. if you can benefit from improvement in any of the following areas, please don’t hesitate to make a note on the pre-massage questionnaire:
relax and rejuvenate • relieve stress and calm the mind • relieve pain and aching muscles • reduce blood pressure • increase mental clarity • promote healing • enhance athletic performance • nourish and improve skin • help prevent insomnia • relieve sinus congestion and headaches • enhance immunity • alleviate allergies • reduce anxiety and depression • improve posture • relieve tmj • ease arthritis • improve joint flexibility • alleviate digestive disorders • allow easier breathing • promote feelings of well-being and harmony • increase range of motion • improve circulation of blood and lymph • nourish tissues • reduce swelling • enhance body-mind awareness • calm the nervous system • break down scar tissue • relieve cramps and muscle spasms • relieve repetitive strain injuries
a completed questionnaire will enable your therapist to address your concerns and is required for all new clients.
if you have a medical condition or are on medication that might preclude massage, please contact us to determine whether a physician’s consent is necessary. we do prenatal services only after the first trimester, and any conditions after the first trimester that might preclude massage will require a physician’s consent.
