When you picture yourself getting a massage, you envision yourself in a luxurious spa de-stressing and unwinding. While massage therapy is generally used for relaxation purposes, it’s also associated with many other benefits you might not even know about. For example, massage therapy can help with:
- Digestive disorders
- Sports injuries
- Soft tissue injuries and strains
- Stress-related insomnia
- Myofascial pain syndrome
If you come in to see us for a massage, you don’t need to do any special preparation beforehand. Just make sure you come with an open mind and ready to reap the many benefits of massage therapy. Before your session, your massage therapist will ask you about your medical history, any symptoms you’re dealing with, and what you hope to get out of your massage. Then, they’ll tailor your experience according to your specific needs.
If your massage therapist is pushing too hard during your massage, please don’t hesitate to speak up. While it’s natural to experience some discomfort while a sensitive spot in one of your muscles is being worked out, let your therapist know if it becomes too painful.
Remember, every day is a great day to get a massage! If you want to know more about massage therapy, its many benefits, and our massage options, give us a call at Secrets of a Duchess today. We can’t wait to meet with you and to make sure your experience is one to remember.
