At Body Fixx, we offer many different types of massage from a light shoulder massage to a full body, deep tissue massage, and CBD Oil massages. They all involve systematically working the muscles and other soft tissues of the body to optimize the functioning of the various bodily systems. We can customize your massage to target troublesome areas and adjust the pressure and technique accordingly for your comfort and benefit.
Where Will My Massage Take Place?
Your massage will take place in a quiet, warm comfortable room. Soft lighting may be used to create a relaxing atmosphere. You’ll lie on a soft, comfortable table. Music may be played softly in the background to aid in the relaxation process of your mind and nervous system.
What Should I Wear To My Massage Appointment?
Comfortable clothing is recommended, however, therapeutic massage is typically performed with the client unclothed. You will be appropriately draped at all times. Most people undress completely, while some leave some clothing on such as underwear. You decide what level of comfort is right for you. Your privacy is respected at all times.
What Parts Of My Body Will Be Massaged?
You and the therapist will discuss the desired outcome. A typical full body massage session will include work on your back, arms, legs, head, neck, and shoulders. Private areas will not be touched.
Do You Use Oils or Lotions?
Yes, a light oil or lotion will be used to reduce excessive friction to the skin and allow smoother deeper strokes. The lubricants used also help to hydrate the skin. If you are allergic to certain oils or scents, just tell the therapist.
Will I Be Sore As a Result of the Massage?
Occasionally, some people may be sore/tender in places the next day, depending on the type of massage and degree of pressure they received. It’s important to communicate with your therapist if the pressure is uncomfortable at any time. Drinking additional fluids following your massage may reduce these symptoms. These symptoms will usually subside by the following day.
What Will the Massage Feel Like?
It depends on the techniques used. Your massage session may start with broad flowing strokes to begin the relaxation process. Pressure will be gradually increased to relax specific areas and release tight muscle bands. Deep tissue massage or trigger point therapies will require deeper pressure and more intensive techniques. It’s important that the pressure always be within your comfort level. Should you wish to receive less or more pressure at any time, tell your therapist.
