FAQs about massage


What are benefits of massage?
Massage and bodywork can help release chronic muscular tension and pain, improve 
circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce mental and physical fatigue and stress, 
promote faster healing of injured muscular tissue, improve posture, and reduce blood 
pressure. Massage and bodywork is also known to promote better sleep, improve 
concentration, reduce anxiety and create an overall sense of well-being. 

Should I tell you about any of my medical conditions?
Yes. Before your massage session,  it is very important that you inform your massage 
therapist or practitioner of health problems or medications you are taking. You may not 
be able to get massage because of your health conditions for example, you may have had a 
recent surgical procedure, deep vein thrombosis,  or serious inflammation.  If you are 
under a doctor's care,  you are strongly advised to get a written recommendation for 
massage or bodywork prior to any session. Or you may be required to get approval before 
any session. 

What should I do once I get to the massage office?
You will meet your massage therapist. Consult on what brought you in and your 
expectation on what you want to achieve. After consultation, your massage therapist will
leave the room. You will undress, relax onto the table under covers. Your massage
therapist will knock on the door to check first if you are set and ready before 
entering.

Must I be completely undressed? 
Traditionally, most massage and bodywork techniques are performed with the client  
undressed; however, it is entirely up to you what you want to wear so you undress 
to your level of comfort. You will be properly draped during the entire session. Only  
areas being worked on is exposed.

What do I do During A Massage:
You lay there under covers. Communicate if something is hurting you, uncomfortable, 
cold, music too loud. Tell the therapist about the pressure that you prefer. We want to be comfortable,
please communicate to us at any time.

What to do After Getting A Massage:
Hydate with Plenty Of Water: Massaging your muscles can get the "the good, the bad" 
blood and toxins to start circulating. By drinking plenty of water, can get 
them to release and flush toxins out of your body. Sometimes, the toxins released can 
make you feel sick. Or you may be a little sore. Hydrate. Talk to your therapist about 
your experience and they can suggest other things that might help you such as stretching 
exercise.

How do I pick a massage therapist?
The best way is by word of the mouth referral. Find someone recommended by someone whose 
judgment you respect. Sometimes you don’t have a good network in the geography you are 
searching, in which case recommend checking with your doctor, chiropractor, 
acupuncture, nurses, other massage therapists, your coworkers. Ask your massage herapists about their background, number of hours earned, years of experiences. Just a note a minimum of hours for a CMT certification in California is 500 education/training hours.  

What is CMT or Certified Massage Therapist mean?
Certified massage Therapist (CMT) is a designation by the state of California Massage Therapy Council (CAMTC). What it means is that the massage therapist with CMT or CMP has completed the state required mandated massage curriculum and education and has been extensively background checked by the FBI and Department of Justice. The purpose of the certification is to protect the public and discourage the use of massage business as fronts for prostitution.
