When someone thinks of a massage, most people automatically think that that means a full hour, full body massage. While this is a standard treatment length and application, this is not your only option!
If you have a busy lifestyle, it’s extra difficult to commit to a full hour, because when all is said and done, that’s at least an hour and a half, and that’s if you live really close! Sometimes, it’s more like a 2 hour commitment. Sometimes, people just aren’t interested in having a full body massage–some people think that it’s too personal or they are left vulnerable for too long, others just don’t think that a full hour massage is necessary, since they only have some shoulder pain.
This is where a quick 30 minute session is just right for you! A 30 minute session of massage is great for pain management, and it’s a great place to start for people who are a little more reluctant for massage. A quick session to address your pressing issue can make a huge difference, and it helps you with your time and pocketbook. Don’t feel bad about coming in for a quick session, especially if that is what YOU need.
We have regular clients and don’t feel like they are getting what they need out of that hour, so they upgrade to a 90 minute session. This allows your therapist to give you a full body AND focus on your specific issue–head aches, shoulder tension, foot pain, you name it. We also offer 120 minute sessions for those who really need a lot of work.
Here’s something you might not have thought about before: If you think you only need half an hour, you’re probably right. Your therapist will tell you if they really do need to work on you more, but massage is for you.
We also have a variety of add-ons available to you. That is also dependent upon your situation. As your massage therapist if you should try aromatherapy or a salt glow. Hot stones aren’t for everyone. Salt glows aren’t for everyone. But they can also help more than you might think. You might benefit more from a Deep Tissue or Sports Massage. Also, make sure you talk to your therapist about what you want out of the massage. We are here to help you and want you to better your massage experience.
We have two therapists, and we are about to get another who does some amazing work. Each have their strengths, so if you feel like you want more or want to address a certain issue, we most likely have a great therapist for the job.
Massage is great to add to your preventative and wellness plan, but only if you are consistent in receiving it. Going to the gym a couple of times a year doesn’t help you with your health goals. The same goes for massage therapy.
