What is Massage?
Massage is a general term for pressing, rubbing and manipulating your skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Massage may range from light stroking to deep pressure. There are many different types of massage.
Did you know that massage is no longer available only through luxury spas and upscale health clubs? Today, massage therapy is offered in businesses, clinics, hospitals and even airports. If you've never tried massage, you're doing yourself a disservice! Read on to learn about its possible health benefits and what to expect during a massage therapy session.
Benefits of massage
Massage is generally considered part of complementary and alternative medicine. It’s increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations.
Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension.
While more research is needed to confirm the benefits of massage, some studies have found massage may also be helpful for:
• Digestive disorders
• Insomnia related to stress
• Myofascial pain syndrome
• Soft tissue strains or injuries
• Sports injuries
• Temporomandibular joint pain
Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy massage because it often produces feelings of caring, comfort and connection.
Despite its benefits, massage isn’t meant as a replacement for regular medical care. Let your doctor know you’re trying massage and be sure to follow any standard treatment plans you have.
Risks of massage
Most people can benefit from massage. However, massage may not be appropriate if you have:
• Bleeding disorders or take blood-thinning medication
• Burns or healing wounds
• Deep vein thrombosis
• Severe osteoporosis
• Severe thrombocytopenia
Discuss the pros and cons of massage with your doctor, especially if you are pregnant or you have cancer or unexplained pain.
Some forms of massage can leave you feeling a bit sore the next day. But massage shouldn’t ordinarily be painful or uncomfortable. If any part of your massage doesn’t feel right or is painful, speak up right away. Most serious problems come from too much pressure during massage.
What to expect for your session:
During your session you will first be asked a series of questions about how you are feeling and what if at all your pain level is. Some of these questions will be based on what you fill out in your client intake form. Give your Therapist as much information as you can about your concerns and what you are feeling at that moment, as well as what you do not want the Therapist to work on. This will help them to customize your massage to what your needs are. Before the session you will be instructed to undress to your comfort level and what position to start your massage in the prone (down) or supine (up) position. The Therapist will step out of the room to give you some privacy. When instructed to undress to your comfort level and if you are new to the massage world, that just means for women to remove your bra and leave on your underwear if you prefer not to have your gluteus worked, and remove them if you want your gluteus worked; and the same for men. During your massage you will be fully covered and only the part that is being worked on at that moment will be uncovered.
