Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork

Community Wellness Center Massage RooomMassage therapy is a hands-on solution to muscle pain and tension, stress and anxiety. The basic principal of massage is that tension and dysfunction in our muscles creates pain and structural issues within our body. This can cause chronic pain, sleepless nights and general unhappiness. Massage therapy addresses these imbalances through gentle and effective touch from highly trained and educated massage therapists.

Massage also benefits the nervous system enhancing the body’s ability to relax, cope with stress and achieve restful sleep. The effects of massage can be sedative, lowering your blood pressure and encouraging relaxation or stimulating, improving circulation and elevating your mood.

There are many forms and styles of massage therapy such as Swedish Massage and Deep Tissue Massage. Here at Community Wellness Center we utilize the relaxing effects of Swedish massage but rely on Trigger Point Therapy and Myo-fascial Release to address deep tension and spasm.

 

Q. What can I expect during a massage session at Community Wellness Center?

A. Before your first session, you will be asked to fill out a basic intake form so that your massage therapist has a complete understanding of your medical history, the reasons for your visit and your areas of discomfort or concern.

Once you have met with your therapist you will be asked to undress to your comfort level and get on the table while the therapist is out of the room. You will be covered by a sheet and blanket during the session and only the area of the body being massaged will be uncovered.

The treatment style will depend on your goals for the session, but should always involve honest communication between you and your therapist—our deepest concern is your safety and satisfaction. Once the session begins, you will experience the best results if you relax into the work, communicating with your therapist about pressure levels and your comfort. The deepest relaxation and healing occur when you practice quiet, internal reflection. Take this opportunity to make one whole hour just about you.

Q. What should I expect after my massage?

A. After the session is over you should drink extra water over the following one to two days and follow any advice that your therapist may suggest such as stretching and icing or other self-care, as this will greatly enhance your results. While most people experience relief from symptoms it is not uncommon to experience soreness and tightening of your muscles following the treatment. Drinking water, stretching and hot or cold therapy can help if this occurs and the body will naturally loosen up after 12 to 24 hours. You may experience sore muscles, temporary reddening of the skin (enhanced blood flow) and total relaxation!

Q. How do you become a massage therapist?

A. Massage Therapists attend an accredited school or college that instructs them with the knowledge and practice required to skillfully address anatomy, physiology, ethics and application as it applies to massage therapy. After schooling they must be licensed according to the rules of the state in which they will be practicing massage therapy and finally, insured in order to work at Community Wellness Center.
