You wouldn’t go to the gym once and declare, “Well, now I’m fit!” The same is true with massage. One area of your body can need an entire 60-minute session to work out, leaving the other areas in need of attention. So, while a single massage will provide benefits, the more massages you get, the longer those benefits can last. Massages should be received every 4 to 6 weeks to keep your muscles loose, avoid injury, and encourage your mind to relax.
Can a massage be painful
When tight or stressed muscles are massaged, there may be some pain, but it should be minimal since the main goal is to relax. Please inform your massage therapist if you find yourself tense up or experiencing pain or discomfort for more than a few moments so they can change the pressure. Similarly, disclosing any injuries will help reduce the likelihood of discomfort during and after your massage.
Is it true that I'll be naked during my massage
You’ll be asked to undress to your desired degree of comfort. For many people, this entails removing all clothes but their panties, but full disrobing is also appropriate. Our licenced massage therapists are qualified to drape sheets as required to maintain your modesty while also allowing access to the areas of your body that are receiving massage. If you want to be completely naked, keep in mind that our therapists can always cover your private body areas with blankets. Indigo also provides Thai Yoga Massage, a fully-clothed form of stretching and relaxation that could be a better match for you if you are concerned about being undressed.
What is the appropriate word for a massage therapist
A therapist who specialises in massage. A licenced massage therapist must be a licenced massage therapist in Missouri, which includes extensive training and adherence to a code of ethics. Indigo Massage Therapy is proud to have a team of well-respected, licenced massage therapists on staff.
Is it possible to exercise and get a massage on the same day
Yes, but working out before your massage would help you get the most out of it. The workout will have drained your muscles, but the massage will have warmed them up. Working out right after could put your body under stress or cause you to become exhausted, resulting in injury. To allow your muscles to heal, wait 12-24 hours before exercising.
Can I remain silent or converse during my massage
The aim of massage is to allow your mind and body to relax. You are not obligated to keep up with your therapist’s conversation. However, you are encouraged to connect if you need assistance in order to feel more at ease. We’re here to make sure you have the best experience possible, so let us know if you’re too hot, too cold, in an uncomfortable spot, or need to use the restroom.
