(Shingles-) We provide the Swedish massage only to the comfort level of the client as any pressured work would not be advisable.
(Acne-) Sometimes people who come for massage have acne, and as therapists we know how to address this problem. Generally, we avoid working areas of the body with acne. But when it is scattered over a broad area, such as someone's back, we use a broad tool, such as our forearms, which allows us to deliver adequate pressure to the muscles below without injuring the skin.
All of us have an autonomic nervous system comprised of two parts: the parasympathetic and sympathetic. The parasympathetic balances the sympathetic. When you have a massage, the parasympathetic is activated and thus allows your body to relax. When you are stressed, the sympathetic is activated and you will feel the urge to fight or flight. So if stress and tension are the reasons why you are not sleeping very well, you might be relieved to know that one of the benefits of massage therapy is improved sleep patterns.Some people even fall asleep while having a professional massage.

moment of peace. Relaxing the muscles and settling the mind are a great
assist to your therapist. chéta will help free you of any anxiety or
unease. Various mind-over-matter techniques like deep breathing and
visualization come in handy and help bodywork go deeper. Focusing on

forms of exercise. You may not want to plan a strenuous day or host a
dinner party for 5 afterward; savor the moment and let the healing sink
The days preceding your visit can help prepare you mentally and
physically for your treatment. Cutting back on (or eliminating) sugar,
caffeine and alcohol and hard to digest foods like red meat will prime
your system to detoxify with ease. You're also likely to feel lighter,
happier about your body and more in tune with yourself. Plus, it
increases the likelihood of your "staying clean" afterward, to extend
the bliss of your visit and more fully reap its rewards.
It's crucial to drink plenty of it before, during and after your visit.
Water hydrates the body's tissues on a cellular level, prompting the
system to cleanse itself and function with fluidity. Just as you would
want to hydrate before a workout, well-watered muscles (including those
of the face) respond better to the activating pressures of massage,
allowing the therapist to work more deeply. Sufficient hydration also
encourages the removal of toxins. Flushing your system will reward you
with compliments on how great your skin looks, how well rested you seem,
etc... Drink up!
