Massage therapy is a non-pharmacological intervention that can be used to manage pain, rehabilitate injuries, reduce stress, increase relaxation, address anxiety and depression, and promote general wellness. Massage therapy encompasses many different techniques and modalities that can be tailored to each individual patient. Sessions can be focused on one or two areas of the body or can cover the entire body. Therapists who are licensed by the State of Maryland offer a variety of massage modalities, including deep tissue massage, Swedish massage, myofascial release, hot stone or hot crystal massage, aromatherapy, prenatal massage, and integrative stretching.
The benefits of massage therapy are numerous. Massage therapy can help reduce muscle tension and pain while improving circulation and flexibility. It can also help reduce stress levels and improve overall mental health by promoting relaxation and reducing anxiety. Massage therapy has also been shown to improve immune system function by increasing white blood cell count and helping to reduce inflammation in the body. Additionally, massage therapy can help improve sleep quality by reducing insomnia symptoms such as difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep.

You do not have to be completely undressed for your massage. Most massage therapists will ask you to undress to your comfort level, which may be anything from fully clothed to completely nude. You should always feel comfortable and respected during your massage, so make sure to communicate with your massage therapist about what you are comfortable with. Your massage therapist will leave the room so you can undress to your comfort level and you will then lie on the massage table under a top sheet and blanket. Regardless if you choose to maintain some clothing or not, your massage therapist will always ensure that you are always properly draped and covered.
We understand that your time is valuable, and we want to make sure that you get the most out of your appointment. We kindly ask that you arrive on time for your appointment so that we can provide you with the full services you have booked. If you arrive late, we may not be able to provide the full services due to other appointments that have been scheduled after yours. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but please understand that full payment for the services you have booked will still be expected. Thank you for understanding.
We understand that some clients may be unsure of how much they should tip their massage therapist. As a general guideline, we recommend tipping your massage therapist as you would a waiter in a restaurant. Our therapists love what they do, and your tip may reflect your appreciation for their service. We suggest that tipping percentages should be based on the full price of a regular massage, rather than the discounted price. For most people, this ranges from 15-25% depending on their level of satisfaction with their treatment.ected.
If you need to reschedule your appointment, you can log into your account and make changes anytime. For late-notice cancellations under 48 hours, please call us directly as soon as possible. Cancellations without 48-hour notice will result in a fee of 50% of the full service scheduled, as that time has been set aside specifically for you.
Although we do not accept insurance for massage therapy at this time, many flexible spending accounts (FSA) and health savings accounts (HSA) can be used for your treatments. We can provide you will all the documentation needed if requested by your FSA/HSA.
The frequency of massages will depend on individual needs and preferences. Generally, it is recommended to receive a massage at least once a month to reap the most benefits. However, if you are dealing with chronic pain or have a specific health condition, more frequent massages may be beneficial. With our Wellness Program, you can enjoy the benefits of regular massages as well as other perks and discounts. Regular massages can be an excellent way to treat yourself and improve your overall health and well-being.
It is important to bring up any questions or concerns you may have prior to the start of your massage. Your massage therapist is here to help you get the most from your massage, and they want to make sure that your experience is as comfortable and relaxing as possible. If you have any skin conditions or body acne, let your massage therapist know so they can use the proper techniques and techniques to ensure your comfort. If you forgot to shave and are feeling embarrassed, don’t worry - your massage therapist will use a light touch and the right techniques to ensure that you feel comfortable during your massage.
If you do happen to fall asleep during your massage, don’t be embarrassed. Your massage therapist is experienced and understands that it is a sign that you are completely relaxed. They may also continue the massage with a lighter touch and the right techniques to ensure that you have an enjoyable and comfortable experience.
It is important to communicate with your massage therapist and let them know if anything is uncomfortable or if you would like more or less pressure. Your massage therapist will be able to adjust the pressure to ensure you are comfortable and relaxed. Additionally, if at any time during the massage, you need to pause or take a break, let your therapist know and they will gladly accommodate you.
Massages can be both pleasurable and painful depending on the type of massage and the individual's tolerance for pain. Some types of massages, such as deep tissue massage, are designed to be more intense and can cause some discomfort. However, most massages are designed to be relaxing and should not cause any pain. Remember, healing does not have to be painful; you do not have to have the "no pain, no gain" mentality to feel better. It is important to communicate with your massage therapist about your comfort level during the massage.
