6 surprising massage facts
By Connect Massage | 4.29.21
Weary of searching for the ultimate massage experience? You know, the massage of your dreams where the therapist listens to you when you list the aches and pains you've been carrying around for months and then actually works on those areas. Or, maybe you've been uncomfortable on a table that felt flimsy, too narrow and so rock hard that you couldn't relax. Whether you work in an office, participate in one or multiple sports, or are a larger client who has given up on massage, Connect Massage is close to home and here to help.
Think of us as your healing hands superhero: ready when you need us, willing to design a plan to knock out your muscle pain, and able to carry out that plan thanks to years of bodywork experience. You see, at Connect Massage we truly do connect with our clients on myriad levels. A typical session begins with a conversation in a comfortable, accommodating setting that centers on the client's bodywork plan and how our previous session's work followed or deviated from the expected outcome. Next, we'll concentrate on palpating the affected areas -- discovering actions and movements that trigger pain. Together we'll develop a new treatment plan for that day's session. The connection continues during the massage as the therapist checks in to ensure pressure levels, stretches and bamboo warmth are perfect. Even as the massage winds down, our therapist continues to connect with the client via soothing head and neck work.
Massage is for everybody! At Connect Massage we've created a safe, body positive space to ease any concerns clients might have.
