There is a difference between wellness massage and orthopedic massage. While orthopedic massage corrects a problem, wellness massage is simply meant to feel good and help you relax. That does not mean that it is fluff massage or a luxury item.
There are many benefits to wellness massage. It can reduce blood pressure, tone down stress, and calm anxiety. Wellness massage turns on your parasympathetic nervous system which turns off your fight/flight response. If you are experiencing a particularly stressful time in your life, or a chronic accumulation of stress, a wellness massage might be just what you need!
The goal of wellness massage is to make you feel good. Every minute is calming, soothing, relaxing, and feels good. A wellness massage can be full body or can be focused in certain areas depending on your preferences. Remember, wellness massage is not a corrective massage, it is a stress relief feel-good treatment.
Unlike with our orthopedic massage, there is no exam before a wellness massage. You will discuss your preferences with your therapist for about 10-minutes and for the rest of the session you get to lay back and relax while your therapist gets to work.
