Life can be stressful and overwhelming, especially these days where it is more important than ever to take care of yourself. To some, massages might still seem like a luxury, but in recent years massage therapy has become a common treatment option for those seeking stress relief, muscle relaxation, and wellness.
We are proud to offer massage therapy to our patients in need. If you’re curious about massage and its benefits, look no further!
Massage is manual or machine-assisted manipulation of muscle and soft tissues through pressure to relieve muscle tension, pain, and stress. The pressure may range from light kneading to more forceful strokes to target deeper within the body.
There are various forms of massage such as deep massage, Swedish, prenatal massages, sports therapy massage, and muscle recovery. During your initial consultation, we will discuss your systems and goals of treatment before deciding which would be right for your needs and lifestyle.
Before your massage, we may ask you to undress or wear loose-fitting clothing depending on your type of massage. We will wait outside until you are comfortable and cover the parts of your body we are not actively massaging with a towel or soft blanket. Depending on your type of massage, we may use oil or lotion to reduce friction against your skin.
The length of your massage will depend on how much time you have and what massage you chose, but regardless of your selection, our highly trained staff will ensure you have a soothing experience under our care. If you feel that our massage therapist is massaging too hard or soft, ask for them to change the pressure. If you have a knot, it can be uncomfortable but if it becomes painful, please let us know.
Massage therapy is not only a great way to reduce your stress levels but also a wonderful way to pamper yourself with self-care. If you believe that you could benefit from massage therapy or would like to know how our services can help you, contact The Caudle Center today for more information.
