Massage Q & A

What are the benefits of massage?

Massage has a number of impressive benefits, including:

  • Muscle relaxation
  • Pain relief
  • Stress reduction
  • Improved circulation
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Improved mood and feeling of well-being
  • Improved range of motion
  • Reduced scar tissue around joints and muscles

Massage is often part of a multidisciplinary treatment plan for injuries, illnesses, and chronic conditions. It’s also a very popular spa treatment for relaxation and rejuvenation. 

What type of massage do I need?

There are more than 80 different massage variants, so the Opulence Health and Wellness team tailors your massage sessions for your needs. The reason for your massage – for example, relaxation versus pain relief – is usually the key factor in determining the best massage approach for you. 

Some types of massage use a lighter touch, such as Swedish massage. Others, like deep tissue massage, involve heavier pressure to access the deeper muscles and fascia beneath your skin. 

Certain types of massage target specific areas, like trigger point massage, but you can also have a whole-body massage for general wellness and relaxation. The team discusses your treatment goals and recommends the massage that works best.

Is massage safe during pregnancy?

Yes, massage is both safe and effective during pregnancy. Prenatal massage is a popular treatment at Opulence Health and Wellness. Prenatal massage can alleviate the many pregnancy aches, pains, and mood shifts brought on by fluctuating hormones during this time. 

Prenatal massage is good for your body and mind while you’re expecting, and also when you give birth. The American Pregnancy Association says that prenatal massage improves labor and delivery experiences. 

What should I wear for a massage?

The team at Opulence Health and Wellness wants you to feel completely comfortable. They recommend you wear loose-fitting clothes that are easy to slip on and off, and that you disrobe to the level that you’re comfortable with before your massage. 

You’ll have privacy to disrobe before your massage, and afterward to get dressed again. The team respects your privacy at all times. 

Massage is a remarkably effective treatment for relaxation, pain relief, and healing. Learn more about how massage at Opulence Health and Wellness can help you by calling the office or clicking on the appointment scheduler now.
