Massage Therapy at Inner Gate Acupuncture

Massage Therapy at Inner Gate Acupuncture


Foot Massage

All massages at Inner Gate Acupuncture are given in a warm and private treatment room. Your therapist will discuss your health concerns and goals with you before your session. They will leave you to privately dress down to your comfort level. When you are ready, lie down on the massage table and cover yourself with the sheet. Your therapist will knock before re-entering.

Make sure to communicate with your therapist throughout the massage.   If you are cold, want deeper or lighter pressure or don’t want a certain area of your body touched let the therapist know. You can ask for changes or stop the session at any time.

Drink plenty of water on the day of your massage. This will reduce soreness and lightheadedness that can happen after a massage. Try to give yourself plenty of time for your treatment, so you can relax more deeply.  

At the end of the massage, the therapist will leave the room so you can dress in private. Take your time getting off the table and getting dressed. It’s a good idea to have a glass of water in the waiting room before you head off.

Massage Therapy is a hands-on therapy that promotes health and well-being through the use of pressure and movement on the body and muscles. 

Mackenzie specializes in relieving pain & reducing stress. His experience and caring demeanor will leave you feeling relaxed and healthy. He is a licensed massage therapist that has been practicing massage and advancing his skill by adding techniques such as deep tissue, myo-fascial release, neuromuscular facilitation, systematic muscular patterning, cupping, And trigger-point therapy. These skills have allowed him to build and grow in knowledge and capacity. He will be starting at Inner Gate Acupuncture in mid-February.
At Inner Gate Acupuncture he will be providing medical massage. Medical massage is somewhat different than spa massage. Medical Massage focuses on resolving specific muscular and structural problems, while spa massage focuses only on relaxation. Range of motion limitations, muscle spasms, neck, shoulder and back pain are all problems addressed with medical massage.  
At Inner Gate Acupuncture we work with you so that you can experience relief. We are excited to add the skills and strong hands of Mackenzie to our growing team.
