This massage attends to specific focus areas that are more troubling. This is not a full body massage. Therapeutic Massage will use various skillful techniques to address pain areas. This is more of an intuitive session in that, depending one what your body is needing we may use firm pressure, trigger point, movement, rotation, light pressure, lymph flow or even energy work.
An example of what this may look like, if you are having pain in your neck, it may require us to use a side lying position (where you lay on your side) and use a friction technique or trigger point to get the muscle to let go. We will stay in the area until there is a shift in pain level.
Benefits from getting this type of massage includes:
|Relaxes the deeper layers of muscles||Breaks up stuck and adhere fascia||Improve cellular nutrition|

Other Useful Information
Therapeutic Massage can be perfect for those in this situation. As long as you are clear about what (if any) lymph nodes were removed and where your chemo focus is located, we can work on other key areas. If you are experiencing neuropathy, we can do a light technique to relieve the pain you are feeling in your toes or fingers (or both). Please connect with your doctor to get his or her professional opinion and any other awareness to communicate with me.
However, it is an awareness that must be shared so that your therapist can better serve you. At Intuitive Spirit Healing Arts, we have been trained for addressing these issues and are capable in adjusting to anything you may need.
Cold, Flu or other Types of Virus
If you have a cold the flu or strep throat (or the like), it is preferrable for you to wait until you get better before having your massage. This protects you, the therapist and other clients.
It protects you because sometimes if you have a massage while you are sick (especially at the start of the cold or virus), it may make you feel worst. With effluerage, we are moving blood, lymph, and other fluids in the body and will have a better chance (not in a good way) to spread the virus in areas it may not be present or was not planning to go.
If you stay home and rest, then your body will do what it is good at by giving your immune system a chance to take care of those little buggers.
Injury or Surgery
If you had a recent injury or surgery, give yourself some time before having that area worked on. If there is healthy swelling or warmth in the area, that means your body is being a superstar by starting the healing process. With massage, you don’t want to risk taking that effort away from your body by moving the healthy swelling or warm out from the area it is serving.
However, this treatment is great, because we can work other areas that may be compensating for your injury. So if you injured your left knee, we will be able to work on the right leg and the surrounding areas of the left knee that maybe becoming fatigued as a result of performing a job for two.
If you have skin issues that are contagious at the time you are having your service, please contact us and re-book your service until the inflammation has gone. These would include poison ivy, poison oak, chicken pocks, shingles, herpes flare up, scabies, staph infection or the like.
However, if you have eczema, rosacea, or psoriasis these are okay to receive massage. They are not contagious.
Other Health Concerns
If you have other health concerns that you are not sure if massage could help or not, please consult with your doctor.
Referrals of a Doctor
Keep in mind that if you have referred by your doctor and you are working with a specific condition, always let your doctor know your progress and when you received your massage.
