Who Benefits From Massage Therapy in Eugene?

Massage therapy is ideal for anyone looking to relax, get pain relief, rehabilitate injuries, relieve stress or anxiety, or simply increase their overall well-being. While getting regular massage is highly recommended, even a single session can improve one’s quality of life and offer immediate benefits.

What Can You Expect From Massage Therapy?

During the massage, as well as after, you should expect to feel extremely relaxed and calm. Range of motion and pain is often decreased during the massage or within 24 hours. Depending on the type of massage that was done, you may also experience some soreness and lightheadedness afterward as your muscles have been manipulated and blood flow was increased to these muscles.

FAQs About Massage Therapy

What Do You Wear When Receiving A Massage?

Massages can be given to someone who is completely clothed or in the nude. However, most people will wear underwear. What should YOU wear? Whatever makes you most comfortable. During the massage, sheets and blankets are used to keep you comfortable and the massage therapist will use draping to only expose the portion of the body that is being massaged. For example, if they are working on your left leg, only your left leg will be exposed.

Why Do People Get Completely Naked For A Massage?

When a client is fully undressed, it allows for easier access to the low-back and glute muscles that are often associated with low back and hip pain or stress on the glutes from exercise or sitting for long periods of time. It also allows the massage therapist to utilize the same techniques using massage lotion or oil that they would on areas like your back.

Should My Massage Hurt To Be Effective?

No, a massage doesn’t need to be painful to be effective. There may be areas of your body that are sensitive and you may experience a minor level of discomfort when they are touched. Areas with trigger points, adhesions (aka “knots”), or areas where you are already experiencing pain or soreness can feel more sensitive. While massage therapists can identify areas of tightness and tension, they are not able to know your pain or discomfort level and it is up to you to let them know if you’re ever uncomfortable or would like a lighter or deeper pressure.
