FAQs

Who benefits from massage therapy?

The benefits of massage are varied and far-reaching. As an accepted part of many physical rehabilitation programs, massage therapy has proven beneficial for many chronic conditions, including lower back pain, arthritis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, immunity suppression, infertility, smoking cessation, depression, and more. And as many millions will attest, massage also helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living that can lead to disease and illness.

So what is massage therapy exactly?

Massage, bodywork and somatic therapies are defined as the applications of various techniques to the muscular structure and soft tissues of the body.

How do I make the most of my 7 Mile Island massage experience?

Before the arrival of our therapists, we suggest securing a calm and quiet spot in your home for your massage. Alert family members of your appointment and your need for privacy. Our therapist will need space for the massage table and room to maneuver around the table (ideally at least 5×10 feet). We recommend setting aside your phone and any other distractions for the duration of your massage. After your treatment, make an extra effort to keep hydrated as this will help to flush out the toxins released during your massage. Keep your muscles warm and think relaxing thoughts about your next massage!

What do I wear?

Dress comfortably. We suggest a robe or a wrap and a pair of slippers. During all treatments your body will be fully draped except for the area being worked on in order to protect your modesty.

What massage oil/lotion do you use?

We bring our massage lotion to you. We opt for a lotion rather than an oil so you won’t feel greasy after your massage, and you won’t have to worry about oil transferring stains on your clothes. Our lotion is a hypoallergenic sensitive skin formula which contains no alcohol, mineral oil or strong fragrances, and it’s paraben and cruelty free too!

Should pregnant women have massages?
