Massage is a general term for pressing, rubbing and manipulating your skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Ranging from light stroking to deep pressure here at Gorge Body Therapy we build a custom massage based on your individual needs. There are many different types of massage offered and ones you may be most familiar with are Swedish, Deep tissue and Sports massage. Feel free to discus what type of massage may be best for you with your therapist.
Massage does not need to hurt to prove its working!
However, therapeutic massage many times will have the intense feeling of pain and pressure as your sore and hurt muscles are releasing toxins and adjusting as they move and settle to their new more efficient positioning after massage. Massage works down through many layers of tissue for the best effects.
“Just Relax, I've got your back!”
Here at Gorge body Therapy we use a hypoallergenic unscented and Organic massage cream with little to no oily residue. Please let us know if you have any skin conditions or allergies.
There is no special preparation for getting massage. You will be professionally draped at all times by a sheet during your massage and you are welcome to wear any clothing that would make you more comfortable. Some types of massage may require waring shorts if we are doing passive range of movement stretches or working in the around the groin. You will receive the biggest benefits from massage when you are most comfortable and relaxed.
