What is it?
Massage is one of the oldest forms of healthcare. The healing power of touch has long been revered for its ability to reduce pain, reduce stress, improve sleep and improve joint movement. A simple touch from another person can have resounding positive effects on one’s mood and state of mind. This combined with the benefits of soft tissue manipulation to release tension in the muscles provides a holistic healing experience. Massage styles include the relaxing Swedish massage consisting of long, slow, flowing strokes with light to medium pressure. Deep tissue massage uses deeper pressure with strokes, compressions and other techniques in specific targeted areas.
What can it do?
Swedish massage relaxes muscles, improves circulation and is very relaxing to the client. Deep tissue massage works to release tension in the muscles and connective tissue allowing better deep circulation, improved range of motion and reduced soreness and pain.
The short term benefits of massage include reduced stress, reduced pain, improved joint mobility and better circulation. Long term, recipients of massage can also have a reduction in blood pressure, relief of headaches, relief of back pain, more restful sleep and a continued less-stressed state of mind.
What does Awesome Bodywork do?
We at Awesome Bodywork take the time to find out your specific goals as a client. During the consultation before each massage we will discuss your goals and what areas of your body need treatment. Wether you’re coming for stress relief or need intensive treatment for chronic pain, each of your sessions will be customized to you needs.
What to expect
Awesome Clients can expect a welcoming, laid back environment and a friendly massage therapist to guide you through the process. After your consultation, your massage therapist (MT) will guide you to a comfortable treatment room with relaxing music and a warm massage table. Your MT will wait outside the room while you undress to your comfort level and get on the table. During the massage your MT will check in with you about pressure, temperature of the room etc. At the end of the massage your MT will leave the room to allow to you get dressed.
