Yes, I am.
What this means is that I register yearly with a professional association.
As a Registered Massage Therapist this will allow you to claim my services through your benefits provider.
On your first visit, you will be asked to complete a health history forms before you begin. The Massage Therapist will ask general health questions to rule out if you have any complications or concerns you may have with massage.
It is very important that you inform the practitioner of any health problems, concerns and medications you are taking. If you are under a doctor’s care, it is advisable to have a written referral for the massage prior to treatment.
While your physician may refer you to a Massage Therapist, it is not required. However some insurance companies do require a doctor’s referral in order to be covered by your extended health care plan.
Your Massage Therapist will leave the room so you can remove your clothing in private. You can remove as much clothing as you feel comfortable with and then lie on the massage table under the top sheet.
Communicate openly with your Massage Therapist. It’s a myth that massage therapy has to hurt to be effective. Some of the most effective types of massage therapy are gentle and do not involve deep pressure or pain. In fact, too much pressure can cause muscles to seize up.
A good rule of thumb is: on a scale of 1 to 10 where 1 is no pain and 10 is extremely painful, the pressure should always be less than 7.
Individuals of all walks of life can enjoy the benefits of massage. If you are a stressed-out executive, a student, a desk jockey, a stay-at-home Mom or an ill and housebound person, massage may be an option to aid you on the road to recovery, well-being or maintaining your level of health.
Massage can help release muscle tension and pain, reduce mental and physical fatigue, reduce
stress and promote faster healing.
Not only is it safe, it is also very beneficial and comforting. Massage therapy can be received
throughout the entire nine months pregnancy term. If you are experiencing complications during
pregnancy, discuss your condition with your doctor or midwife first.
Most Massage Therapist use hypoallergenic massage oils. If you have sensitivity to certain types of oils or lotion please advise your Massage Therapist.
With age, the joints stiffen and muscles get tight. The common bent over posture of old age occurs as a result of the body adapting to long term poor posture. As posture becomes more bent forward, the muscles have to work harder to keep the body balanced which makes the muscles progressively tighter.
