Massages are becoming increasingly popular and many people enjoy the benefits they provide. If you have never had a massage before, or if you are not sure what to expect, you may have a few questions. We would like to answer some of the common questions about massages to help you understand how they work. At Vitality Health Services in Fremont, we offer a variety of services, including massage therapy. You will leave our office feeling relieved and relaxed after your first massage session.
What is massage therapy and how does it work?
Massage therapy is the use of hands-on techniques to manipulate the muscles and soft tissues of the body. It targets areas of tension and stress to help relieve pain and improve flexibility. Massage therapy works by increasing the blood flow and circulation to these areas, providing the necessary nutrients for quicker healing. Massage therapy can be used alone or in conjunction with other forms of treatment.
What can I expect during a massage session?
When you arrive for your massage session, the first step by the massage therapist is to ask about any area of tension that you may be experiencing. That helps us determine where to focus our efforts. We will then ask you to lie down on the massage table. You do not have to remove all your clothes, but you will need to remove your jewelry and anything that might get in the way. The therapist will leave the room while you undress and then we will come back and ask you to cover yourself with a sheet.
