Swedish Massage

This is the most common type of massage and sometimes also referred to as a "relaxation massage." The Swedish massage is done with light pressure.  Techniques include long gliding strokes, kneading, tapping and sometimes a shaking motion that affects the body's muscles, nerves and glands.  The Swedish massage is ideal for relaxing and increasing your circulation and energy.

Therapeutic Massage

This type of massage is meant to reach deep into your muscles and is done by using deep muscle compression and putting friction along the grain of your muscles.  Although all forms of massage assist in releasing toxins, the deep tissue massage is a more intense approach.  This approach  is especially helpful for muscle damage from an injury such as whiplash or back strain.

Whether you are anticipating your first massage or you have received many massages, it's always good to go into a session with a heads-up of what to expect during your session.

The Intake Process

Your therapist will take some time to get to know you, your needs, and your goals.  Also take this time to get to know your Licensed Massage Therapist(LMT).  You will be asked to fill out a short intake form. This form will not only determine any possible contraindications you may have medically, but also help to determine the direction of your session.  Once you and your LMT have determined the goals for the session, the hands on part of the treatment will begin. 

Level of Undress

The question that is asked most often by our guests is what to wLindy's at the beach massagesear during treatment.   Swedish massage is best done with the guest disrobed. That being said, the most important thing is that you are comfortable during your session. We always advise our guests to disrobe to their level of comfort. The amount of clothing that you wish to leave on (or off!) is truly up to you. A skilled therapist will be able to do their work regardless of how much you leave on or off.  We drape our guests at all times. “Draping” refers to the placement of sheets or other items over sensitive areas of the body in order to provide maximum comfort for the guest. Our LMT's have been trained to ensure your comfort.

Your Role During the Massage

Once you are on the table and the LMT has started her work there are several things that you can do to further facilitate your relaxation.  It is very important to communicate with the LMTs when necessary. Some things to communicate about include the level or depth of pressure, temperature, and any emotions that may come up.  Much of our tension comes from not allowing ourselves to properly breathe. The difference between a guest who is experiencing a full breath on the table and one taking short breaths almost always correlates to the tension in soft tissue. Taking a full breath allows oxygen to be delivered more efficiently throughout your body. Deep breathing can help to deepen your relaxation. If you breathe high in your chest, this keeps you alert and awake. The deeper you breathe in your body, the more relaxed you will become.

Promoting a Safe Environment

We all have internal thought processes about our own bodies – we are all our own worst critics. I can guarantee that you think much more about the idiosyncrasies of your own body much more than your therapist ever will. Forget worrying about the state of the hair on your legs or whether you are ten pounds heavier than you wish you were. Your LMT is more concerned with what’s causing all the tension between your shoulder blades or helping you to release a tight spot in your hips.

While basic hygiene is encouraged for both the LMT and the client, the LMTs are quite understanding of basic bodily functions such as sweating and sandal feet during the summer. They see many, many bodies that are all different and unique in their own ways. While we are all individuals with our own needs and manifestations of tension, we are ultimately all connected through our embodiment. We all are at different stages of health or disease, but not a one of us is better or worse than the other regardless of what our outside appearance may be.

After the Massage

You will be given time and privacy to get off of the table and get dressed. Allow your body to integrate what has occurred throughout the treatment session.  After you are dressed, you and your LMT will discuss possible future treatment goals and anything else that is relevant to your session. This is a good time to schedule for your next appointment. Your therapist will have an idea of how often massage will be beneficial to you based on your treatment plan.  It’s very important to drink plenty of water after your massage.  Massage helps to release a lot of toxins that build up in your body over time. Water will help to flush these toxins out and prevent any soreness that you may feel from any deeper or focused work.
