Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork Sessions
Prior to a massage session, an interview assessing needs is conducted with your therapist who will then recommend a treatment plan, explain techniques, and outline the estimated time and number of sessions to achieve the goal based on your personal situation. During follow-up sessions, the therapist will review progress and implement changes as indicated.
Following a therapeutic massage and bodywork session, it is critical to drink four to five eight-ounce glasses of water. This will flush out toxins trapped in sore or tight muscles. While the muscles heal, there may be soreness in some areas. If there is soreness, try a warm Epsom salt bath and drink more water.
