Will massage therapy hurt?
When muscles are tight they can restrict the circulation flowing through them. When this occurs metabolic waste begins to accumulate and will start to irritate it the muscles. This is what you feel when you are sore, achy and stiff the day after exercise. There may be some discomfort during a massage treatment as these irritated muscles get flushed out and circulation returns. Localized contractures in muscle called trigger points can also cause discomfort when worked on.  

Always communicate with your therapist to let them know if the pressure is too much. Massage therapy is not something you should have to suffer through. You should be able to relax your whole body during the entire treatment. Deep breathing can be used to make sure discomfort stays at a minimum. The good news is that the effects of massage are cumulative which means that the more treatment you receive the less painful it will become.

 
How many appointments do I need?
Massage therapy, like most contemporary healthcare modalities, is not a quick fix.  If it has taken a long time to get to where you are now it may not resolve in one treatment.  Therapeutic massage is used to help increase the body’s own healing capacity.  If it is your first time receiving massage therapy, the effects you experience will be relative to your condition. Some people can experience instantaneous relief.  Most people, however, need more than one treatment to get them back to a balanced state.  Your massage therapist can help make a treatment plan that best suits your needs.  Once you feel healthy and recovered it is recommended to continue receiving massage therapy as preventative maintenance about once a month.
 
Do I need to wear or bring anything special?
Wear comfortable clothing that can be taken off efficiently. Avoid jewelry such as necklaces or dangling earrings. Don’t make a point of doing your hair or makeup. Odds are it will just get messed up during the treatment. Too many hair clips or pins can also be uncomfortable. Usually a hair elastic is adequate if needed.
