Massage Therapy Services
Are you nursing aches and pains that leave feeling totally chewed out by the time you go to bed each night? Are your days typically filled with a struggle just to get through activities other people seem to be able to do without breaking a sweat? Has long hours at a desk job made you incapable of having fun on the weekends without fear of pulling a muscle? In each of these cases, the best solution is to find a way to relax. The certified massage therapists at our Redondo Beach center can help with that.
Before the Massage
We recommend scheduling a massage at a convenient time, making sure you do not have any complications at the time, such as a fever, or even an overly full stomach. It is best to show up relaxed, but if you cannot, then we can get you there.
Determining your Needs for Massage Therapy
The first time you visit at our Redondo Beach center, we ask for pertinent details regarding your health, such as any medical conditions, the level of discomfort or pain you are contending with, areas of concern, what affects your pain, and of course, your contact information. After reviewing your health history, a massage therapist interviews you as a way to glean any specific information you can provide as to your condition, such as the effects of any medication you happen to be taking, for instance. They work with you to tailor a session that fits into your available time, and avoids techniques you wish to keep away from. This is where our professional inform themselves of any concerns of apprehensions you have, and you can rest assured this will be treated with absolute confidentiality.
During the Massage
The general setup involves the patient lying on a massage table and covered with a large towel or sheet. The therapist makes sure you are comfortable. You hold the reins here, which means you can voice any problem you have with the temperature, your degree of exposure, the music playing in the background, or the use of a specific technique. The session is fully based on what works best for you.
Getting the Most Out of Massage Therapy
For best results, we encourage patients to be as open with the process as they can. Mental relaxation is key, so you need to let your thoughts drift. Your breathing should be conducive to this, and it should be as consistent as you can make it. The muscles need to be left lax for massage therapy to be effective.
