Massage Therapy for Lakeville

Massage therapy has come a long way. What used to be a form of relaxation and recreation is now used to help during treatments of certain health conditions…alternative medicine at its finest.

How Massage Therapy Can Help You

There are actually a lot of benefits one can derive from your massage therapy appointment. Here are five of the most common:

  • Promotes relaxation. Massage helps relax and stretch your muscles. There are different types of massage techniques applied not only to your skin but to underlying tissues as well.
  • Relieves pain. When you are in pain your muscles contract. Your mind concentrates on the pain making you feel more pain than it usually is. Today, massage is not only used for relaxation purposes. It also plays a role on the therapeutic process of relieving pain. Different pressures are applied on certain areas.
  • Promotes circulation and oxygenation. When a massage therapist manipulates body tissues they not only manipulate the muscles but blood vessels as well. Massage strokes follow an upward direction promoting blood supply towards the heart. The heart then pumps/distributes the blood supplied to different parts of the body.
  • Relieves sleeplessness and insomnia. A massage session helps relieve the stress you feel from daily life stressors.
  • Promotes flexibility. Massage helps relieve tensed and knotted muscles. When muscles are not tense they can move better.

What to Expect

massage therapy in Lakeville

Massage therapy is more than just a form of relaxation; it can help with many health conditions

Your first massage therapy appointment begins with filling out a health history. Please arrive a few minutes early before your appointment to fill it out.

The health history will ask about your medical conditions, areas of concern, your level of pain or discomfort, and your contact information. You will also be asked to sign forms that explain your right to privacy such as HIPAA Consent and Disclosure.

During your massage, you will lie on a massage table, covered by a sheet. We will make sure you are comfortable. Please let your therapist know if you are too cold or warm, or don’t want certain areas of your body massaged. Also, be sure to let your therapist know if the pressure they are applying is too firm or not firm enough.

At the end of the massage, the therapist will leave the room so you can dress in private. Take your time getting ready. Do not move too quickly especially if you feel light-headed.

The therapist will offer you a glass of water before you leave. It is a good idea to drink more water through out the day to help the body flush toxins that may have been stored in your muscles.

Because our office is a professional setting, our massage therapists do not accept tips.

Massage can be a great partner in your overall health and wellness plan.
