FIRST MASSAGE?

What to expect during a massage session?

When a massage therapy session starts, your massage therapist will ask you about any symptoms, new medical history, and recent activities based on your medical intake form. All therapists explain the kind of massage and techniques he or she will use if needed. In a massage therapy session, you undress only to the point that you're comfortable. You lie on a table and cover yourself with a sheet or while sitting in a chair, fully clothed. Your massage therapist will perform analysis through touch to locate painful or tense areas and to determine how much pressure to apply and what skill. Depending on preference, your massage therapist may use oil or lotion to reduce friction on your skin. Please notify your massage therapist if you might be allergic to any ingredients.

Massage and Pain? 

How do you know when pain is too much?

If the pain is a 10 on a scale and you can not take a deep breath (7 seconds inhale and 4 seconds exhale) then the pressure is too much and you should inform your therapist immediately. On the other hand, the pain you can describe as a "good pain" than inform the therapist that the pressure is good and to stay on that level of pressure.

 

How much room do I need?

Table- Twin bed sized area or room is perfect! 

    Chair- Most rooms.

When shouldn't I receive Massage?

If any of these conditions apply to you below, please contact your Doctor or Physician before scheduling your appointment with Spa at Home LLC.

We may instruct you to show a doctor's note if needed beforehand.

Below is a general list of contraindications for massage.

Fever:

When you have a fever, your body is trying to isolate and expel an invader of some kind. Massage increases overall circulation and could, therefore, work against your body's natural defenses.

 

High Blood Pressure: (Not controlled by Medication) 

High blood pressure means excessive pressure against blood vessel walls. Massage affects the blood vessels, and so people with high blood pressure or a heart condition should receive light, Swedish massages, if at all.

 

Infectious Disease:

Massage is not a good idea for someone coming down with the flu or any type of virus. Why? You expose anyone who comes into close contact with you to the virus, also making them sick.

 

Hernia: 

Hernias are protrusions of part of an organ (such as the intestines) through a muscular wall. Swedish massage recommended.

 

Osteoporosis:

Seniors with a severe stoop to the shoulders often have this condition, in which bones become porous, brittle, and fragile. Deep Tissue massage may be too intense for this condition, but Swedish massage or Energy may be an option.

 

Varicose Veins: 

Massage directly over varicose veins can worsen the problem. However, if you apply a very light massage next to the problem, always in a direction of the heart, it can be very beneficial.

 

Skin Infection: 

You should avoid anything that looks like it shouldn't be there, such as rashes, wounds, bruises, burns, boils, and blisters, for example. Usually, these problems are local, so you can still receive a massage in other areas. If the problem gets worse or spreads, massage is not recommended.

Clothing?

The client can be fully nude, dressed, or in between. Our policies and procedures state that genitalia is always covered with a sheet.
