Deep tissue massage uses firm pressure and slow strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue to address chronic pain, muscle tension, and injury recovery. The therapist may use their fingers, thumbs, or elbows to apply firm pressure to specific areas of the body. It can also help improve flexibility and range of motion. Communicate with your massage therapist throughout the session to ensure that the pressure and techniques used are comfortable for you.

Cupping involves placing cups made of glass, silicone, or plastic on the skin and creating a vacuum by suctioning out the air. The suction creates a negative pressure on the skin, which is believed to help improve blood flow and relieve muscle tension. During a cupping session, the cups may be left in place for several minutes or moved around the skin in a gliding motion. The suction may leave temporary marks but these are usually painless and fade within a few days.

Massage Therapy Frequently Asked Questions
The type of massage technique that you choose usually depends on how you feel, the ailments that you have, and the benefits that you expect to gain from it. To learn more about the services that we offer and the types of massage we offer, please send us a message, email, or give us a call.
In massage therapy, contraindications are medical conditions that prevent a massage therapist from treating a client. Contraindications that could affect the type of massage you can receive include varicose veins, pregnancy, sunburn, bruising, undiagnosed lumps or bumps, cancer, a fever, and recent operations or injuries. You should raise any medical concerns before your appointment begins, and complete your health intake to the best of your ability. Even if you have a contraindication, your massage can still take place since massage can be therapeutic. If you have a medical concern, it’s best to consult your doctor. We recommend rescheduling your appointment if you’re not feeling well. Receiving a massage when you’re sick is not relaxing or comfortable for you, and may also put your therapist at risk of getting sick.
It’s not an easy question to answer. People respond differently to massage therapy. Some people leave their appointments feeling immediate relief, while others don’t experience relief for a few days afterward, and some require multiple appointments to notice significant improvement. Following the appointment, your massage therapist will provide you with recommendations about how often you should receive treatment. You should discuss your ailments and your expectations with your massage therapist so that they can help you understand the benefits you can expect from your sessions. Ultimately, it’s up to you!
We will ask you to complete a short health intake upon your arrival. After completing the intake, your massage therapist will take you into the treatment room. You’ll be asked about any pain you’re experiencing or if there are any conditions that need to be addressed. You should be honest and transparent about your medical concerns and medications so that your therapist can help you and safely adapt your session to your specific needs. Please share any allergies or aversions to scents or oils so that your therapist can avoid these during your session.
While some people prefer to close their eyes and relax for the duration of their massage session, others prefer to converse with their massage therapist. The choice is yours. Your therapist will take the cue from you. Your therapist will ask you for feedback during deeper pressure massages to ensure that the pressure is comfortable. Be sure to speak up if you are host or cold, in pain or forgot to mention a health condition during the intake or if you have a question about the massage.
The massage therapist will always ask you to undress as much as you are comfortable with. Many people prefer to keep their underwear on during a massage, while others feel more comfortable being naked. If you are wearing a bra, you may want to take it off so that your massage therapist can work on your back and shoulder area without getting any oil or lotion on your bra. The massage therapist will leave the treatment room so that you can undress and lay comfortably on the massage table underneath the sheet. Your therapist will knock on the door to ensure that you’re ready for them to enter. Your therapist will also ensure that you are always covered by a sheet or blanket during the session.
You shouldn’t let self-consciousness stop you from getting the healthcare you need. Professional massage therapists are non-judgmental and solely focused on your muscles and soft tissues. In order to make you as comfortable as possible, you can request that your massage therapist avoid certain areas. Remember, hairy legs are also in style this year and your therapists are more concerned about helping to heal your body!
Sweet dreams! Some people come into their appointments sleep deprived or stressed out from a week’s worth of work, but feel so relaxed during their appointment that they fall asleep. Your therapist won’t judge you if you snore during your appointment (trust us, it happens often).
It is recommended that you use the restroom before your appointment. This way, you won’t need to interrupt your state of stillness. If you need to go to the bathroom, please let your therapist know. We have robes available so you can make your way right to the restroom and jump right back into where you left off.
This is totally normal. This is one of the main concerns that men have, ultimately preventing them from getting a massage. Don’t be embarrassed if this happens to you. An interesting anatomy fact is that erections are triggered by the parasympathetic nervous system, which can be activated by gentle touch anywhere on the body. Your therapist will understand and ignore this. If you are concerned about this happening, we recommend wearing more fitted underwear to provide more support than traditional boxers. Note: If the therapist believes the session has become sexual, they may stop the session to clarify the client’s intent and stop the session immediately.
As massage therapists, we create judgment-free zones in our treatment rooms and recognize that massages can cause stomach noises, gassy episodes, or even deep emotional reactions. Your therapist will understand if you need to laugh, cry, or just take a break. During your appointment, if you’re clenching your gluteal muscles or holding anything in, chances are you’re not relaxed. If you need to use the bathroom, please inform your massage therapist. Passing gas during your appointment is a sign that you’re truly relaxed.
Although a tip is never expected, a tip of 20 percent is standard if you enjoyed the experience. It’s customary to tip based on the original price of the service. The preferred tipping method is cash or Venmo, but you may also tip with a check, debit card, or credit card.
