Massage Therapy

Message therapy is the manipulation of the muscles and other soft tissues of the body by stroking, kneading, or rubbing with one or both hands for therapeutic purposes.  This technique is used to relieve pain, promote healing, or improve physical functioning. When our bodies are stressed and tired, our muscles tense and bunch up instinctively to protect us. This can result in pain, straining, cramping, circulation issues and even injury. A massage can help ease these issues, provide relief and give you a boost of energy.

Here at our practice, we offer Swedish, Therapeutic, and Deep Tissue massages. Our Swedish massage promotes relaxation with its gentle technique that releases muscle tension, allowing you to relax from the everyday stressors of life. If you are looking for a massage that focuses on a specific area of the body that needs work, a Therapeutic massage may be for you. This type of massage helps to relieve pain, reduce stress and focus on a specific problem or area. Book a Deep Tissue massage to provide relaxation as the therapist applies slow, firm pressure to release the tension of your muscles by focusing on massaging the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons, and fascia, It will loosen the muscles and lessen the pain so you can do what you want and need to do!

Where will my massage take place?

Your massage will take place in a warm, comfortable, quiet room. Soft music may be played to help you relax. You will lie on a table especially designed for your comfort. Massages will take place at Virginia Vein and Wellness Center in Lynchburg, VA. 

Must I be completely undressed?

Most massage and bodywork techniques are traditionally performed with the client unclothed or wearing their underwear; however, it is entirely up to you what you want to wear. You should undress to your level of comfort. You will be properly draped during the entire session. 

Will the practitioner be present when I disrobe?

The practitioner will leave the room while you undress, relax onto the table, and cover yourself with a clean sheet or towel. 

Will I be covered during the session?

You will be properly draped at all times to keep you warm and comfortable. Only the area being worked on will be exposed. 

What parts of my body will be massaged?

A typical full-body session will include work on your back, arms, legs, feet, hands, head, neck, and shoulders.

What will the massage or bodywork feel like?

A relaxing Swedish massage is often a baseline for clients. In a general Swedish massage, your session may start with broad, flowing strokes that will help calm your nervous system and relax exterior muscle tension. As your body becomes relaxed, pressure will gradually be increased to relax specific areas and relieve areas of muscular tension. Often, a light oil or lotion is used to allow your muscles to be massaged without causing excessive friction to the skin. The oil also helps hydrate your skin. You should communicate immediately if you feel any discomfort so that another approach may be taken. Massage and bodywork are most effective when your body is not resisting.

Are there different kinds of massage and bodywork?

There are numerous types of massage and bodywork; various techniques utilize different strokes, including basic rubbing strokes, rocking movement, posture and movement re-education, application of pressure to specific points, and more. We can discuss which methods may be most appropriate for you.

What should I do during the massage or bodywork session?

Prior to the massage, feel free to ask the practitioner any questions about the technique or the upcoming session. During the massage, make yourself comfortable. The practitioner will either gently move you or tell you what is needed throughout the session (such as lifting your arm). Many people just close their eyes and completely relax, communicating if/when they need more or less pressure, another blanket, or anything else relevant to the session. If you have any questions regarding the session or about the particular technique you are receiving, feel free to ask.

How will I feel after the massage or bodywork session?

Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience freedom from long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity which can last for days.

What are the benefits of massage and bodywork?

Massage and bodywork can help release chronic muscular tension and pain, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce mental and physical fatigue and stress, promote faster healing of injured muscular tissue, improve posture, and reduce blood pressure. Massage and bodywork is also known to promote better sleep, improve concentration, reduce anxiety and create an overall sense of well-being.

Are there any medical conditions that would make massage or bodywork inadvisable?

Yes. That’s why it’s imperative that, before you begin your session, the practitioner asks general health questions. It is very important that you inform the practitioner of any health problems or medications you are taking. If you are under a doctor’s care, it is strongly advised that you receive a written recommendation for massage or bodywork prior to any session. Depending on the condition, approval from your doctor may be required.
