Massage Therapy

 

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.  

Massage at Inner Gate Acupuncture 

Our massage therapist specializes in relieving pain & reducing stress. Her experience and caring demeanor will leave you feeling relaxed and healthy. 

At inner gate acupuncture we provide medical massage. Medical Massage is different than spa massage. Medical Massage focuses on resolving specific 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.  

We work with you so that you can experience relief. If you are looking for a caring and calming atmosphere where you can heal and relax look no further.

What to expect

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.
