8 ways to get the most out of your massage

November 30 2012

Ever wondered how you could make your massage experience even better, or how to prolong the effects of your last massage? Here are 8 easy ways to get the most out of your massage sessions.

 

What do you need?

October 24 2012

This page outlines some common scenarios that bring my clients in for massage. Do you see yourself in them? If you don't, but would like to know how massage can help YOU, don't hesitate to send an email and let me know. I love nothing more than helping my clients to understand their bodies better and find the space and balance they need!

What is Sports Massage?

August 20 2012

Sports massage employs a variety of Swedish massage and deep tissue massage techniques, to help prevent and recover from injury, increase range of motion, or help an athlete recover from a big event. The exact techniques used depend on the timing of the session and present injuries.

What is Deep Tissue massage?

August 14 2012

Deep tissue massage targets deeper layers of muscle and fascia using more focused techniques than Swedish massage such as myofascial release, trigger point therapy, and range of motion. Deep tissue massage is most often employed to address areas of chronic tension, or to treat muscle injuries.

 

What is Swedish massage?

August 6 2012

Swedish massage refers to a series of smooth, flowing strokes to relieve stress, affect circulation, and reduce pain and muscle tension. The main Swedish strokes are effleurage (gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (tapping), friction, and vibration.

So...how bad is it?

July 18 2012

This is probably the most common question I get from clients aside from whether or not to leave underwear on during a session. It always makes me think of all those hospital dramas: “So, Doc. How bad is it?”. It is phrased in a myriad of ways such as “How bad is it?”, “Is it really bad?” “It’s bad, right?”, and “Is it the worst you have ever seen?” (more on this last one in a future post).

 

The Client List

July 18 2012

Is Lifetime’s new series The Client List bad for the massage therapy profession?

 

There has been quite a hubbub in recent weeks about the new Lifetime series The Client List. I have read reasonably (and unreasonably) articulated comments from both camps, including the American Massage Therapy Association.

 

After watching the first episode, I’d like to believe that it will have no impact whatsoever.
