FAQs

Below is a list of our most frequently asked questions. If you have a question that isn’t below, please feel free to contact us so we can answer your question.

Where can I park?

Our spacious suite includes plenty of onsite parking in a private parking lot.

What should I wear?

The majority of our work is done with our clients undressed to their level of comfort and under a sheet on our massage tables.  All of our therapists are fully trained in proper draping skills, so modesty will be maintained at all times.

Do you have a shower?

No, our facility does not include a shower.  But the lotions and creams that our therapists use rarely leave our clients feeling greasy.

Why am I in pain?

We use our bodies for a variety of activities every day of our life.  Some of these activities can cause painless micro-injuries that over time weaken our tissues.  We naturally respond to these by adjusting our posture, positioning and movement without much conscious thought.   This all puts stain on our body and when our personal threshold is reached, pain results.  Sometimes this can be caused by a simple, every day activity like picking up a piece of paper.

Will one treatment fix me?

It is possible to feel a marked improvement after one massage.  But, it likely did not take you one day to cause the pain that you are feeling, and it will likely take more than one day to get you out of the pain that you are feeling.  The body tends to release in layers.  Once the upper layer of tension is relieved, deeper layers can be revealed.  The body responds best to consistency.  The more often you do something nice for it, the better it will feel.

How often do I need a massage?

If you are coming to us for a specific injury or problem, the best results come from getting a massage once a week for at least three weeks and tapering back from there.  Results can vary and depend on how your body responds to massage and the amount of stress your normal schedule puts your body under.  For those seeking general health and maintenance, once a month is a typical regimen.

What is fascia?

Fascia is a connective tissue layer in the body that surrounds the muscles, organs and vessels and holds them  together.  It consists of several layers, from superficial to deep, and extends uninterrupted from the head of the body to the tips of the toes.   Myofascial techniques target this layer of connective tissue with the goal of loosening it and creating more space in the body.

What is a trigger point?

A trigger point is a knot in a muscle that can cause tenderness when touched.  This discomfort may be local to the area being worked on, but trigger points can also refer pain to other parts of the body.  Releasing trigger points can do much to relieve pain.
