Frequently Asked Questions about Massage

What should I expect from a massage?

Following‎ your intake (which includes asking about medications, pain, job, habits, etc.), you will undress to your comfort level (You are free to wear underwear if that makes you comfortable) and position yourself as instructed under the sheet/blanket.  You will then need to communicate about your comfort and pressure during your massage.  Finally, we will outline a treatment plan to achieve the best possible lasting results.

Does my HSA or FSA pay for massage?

 

 We now accept HSA and FSA cards.  Please note before using:  Massage  therapy is qualified when authorized by a physician confirming that  massage therapy is prescribed as treatment of a specific medical  condition. The physician should also include the frequency and duration  of the therapy. Please retain the prescription or other order with your  tax records. Massage therapy for general health does not qualify as a  medical expense

How often should I have a massage?

Treatment plans vary for everyone...for some, once a month is sufficient, others need treatment on a more regular basis.  I have clients that see me anywhere from twice a week, weekly, biweekly, and some every six weeks.  You will be informed of the best option for you as part of your treatment plan before you leave.

How will I feel after the massage?

Some types of massage can leave you sore for the next day or two. If any part of your massage doesn't feel right or is painful, speak up right away so pressure can be adjusted.  Drinking water after the massage will help to properly hydrate muscles, which can help to reduce muscle aches and stiffness. Stretching and hot epsom salt baths are also great after a massage. Avoid strenuous activity for a couple of days.
