For overall best massage results during any massage treatment, clients should give the following recommendations and observe considerations:
Drink plenty of water after your massage- the best massage treatments will release toxins in the body. The amounts vary on the intensity of the chosen massage and your level of tension (Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, sports massage, hot stone massage all release toxins into the body as part of the therapeutic function of massage). Drinking plenty of water throughout the day after your massage will help flush out these toxins giving you a better long term result.
You will likely be sore after your massage – Muscle soreness ranging from slight to the feeling you get after an incredible workout or session of strenuous exercise is common depending on various elements of your massage. Your massage intensity level, your own level of tension before treatment, and the duration of time you have had that tension will all affect muscle soreness after your massage. The best massages will create this soreness as a part of the therapeutic function of massage. Once the soreness is gone, you will notice decreased tension, increase flexibility and mobility.
Adding a regular regimen of bi-monthly or monthly massage will reveal highly beneficial long term therapeutic results and overall reduced tension, increased flexibility and other well noted health benefits. Consult with your massage therapist to create a customized massage schelude to realize the best possible results.
Talk with your massage therapist- the best massage therapy results can be attained by allowing your therapist to help you in understanding what elements of your daily lifestyle can be causing your most prevalent pains and aches and how to help reduce them through scheduled massage therapy and other simple exercises that can be added to your daily routine. Discussing with your massage therapist before and after your massage treatment will give you the best massage results long-term.

Thai Massage is an interactive manipulation of the body using passive stretching and gentle pressure along energy lines. This ancient form of massage dates back to the time of Buddha and looks like a cross between shiatsu, acupressure, and yoga. Practitioners apply pressure along meridian lines with their thumbs, hands, and feet to stimulate the movement of energy in the body, and in addition, move and stretch their clients in Yoga-like poses to free muscular and joint tension. Traditionally performed on a mat, this technique is designed on the table for a chance to experience the healing power, both relaxing and stimulating. Thai massage improves flexibility, reduces tension, stimulates internal organs, and balances the body’s energy system.
Pregnancy places strong demands on a woman’s body and is a time for the body to be nurtured and pampered. This massage not only relieves the tensions and aches caused by the extra weight and shift in the center of gravity to the body, but it reduces swelling, soothes the nervous system, acts as a tonic, reduces fatigue, and enhances energy.
This special form of massage is typically used before, during, and after athletic events to prepare the athlete for peak performance, to drain away fatigue, to relieve swelling, to reduce muscle tension, to promote flexibility and to prevent injuries. Depending on the needs of the athlete, a variety of techniques are used including classic Swedish strokes, cross-fiber friction, pressure-point work, and joint mobilization.
