Massages are relaxing, helpful, wonderful, pain reducing and so much more! However, if you have never had one before they can be intimidating or you just plain don’t understand why you should get one. Here are massage questions answered:
1. What are the benefits of Massage?
Improved immune response, stress reduction, better sleep, and faster workout recovery, increased mobility and so much more. Discuss your individual needs with your therapist and they can customize your massage to your needs.
2. How exposed will I be?
You will only be asked to undress to your level of comfort. Oils and lotions are used during massage; to avoid developing stains on fabric, it is advisable to remove clothing anywhere the therapist will be working. During the massage, you will be draped with heavy sheets to preserve your modesty and ensure that you remain warm.
3. What does the therapist work on?
The massage will be tailored to your needs and therapy goals. If you prefer that your therapist refrain from working on certain areas, please inform accordingly.
4. What types of products will be used?
At Clary Sage Salon & Spa, we offer the choice of oil, body butter, massage cream, etc. These options will be discussed during you consultation prior to the massage.
5. How do I know what type of massage to ask for?
At Clary massage begins with a consultation. This is a very important component because each massage is tailored for the individual. Treatment goals and pertinent medical information such as allergies, surgeries, and injuries will be discussed. After the consultation you will be given some privacy to undress and position yourself on the table. We offer several different massage options:
CLARY MASSAGE 90 MINUTES or 1 HOUR: This is a relaxation massage based on Swedish principles, personalized for you. Swedish massage is the foundation of all Clary massages. This style of massage is well known for its fluid, sweeping strokes. Varying degrees of depth and pressure are employed to enhance relaxation and promote healing.
CLARY MASSAGE 30 MINUTE: This is an abbreviated version of the Clary massage. The massage works wonderfully for when you have a specific area of concern.
CHAIR MASSAGE 15 MINUTE: This is our simplest and most convenient massage. It is ideal for anyone who is pressed for time or in need of focused treatment for the back and shoulders. This is also a great introduction to massage if you are new to the experience.
6. Are there options to add on to my massage?
Yes! We offer several different types of upgrades for you to enjoy:
DEEP TISSUE: The Deep Tissue massage is more therapeutic in nature. It involves precise, intense techniques to penetrate the muscle tissue for optimal toxin release and healing. Due to deep tissue work, discomfort may be experienced and last up to two days after treatment.
HOT STONE: In this addition to the Clary Massage, the therapist places warm volcanic stones on key energy points on your body to relax and harmonize the body systems.
AROMATHERAPY: Scent is closely tied to memory and emotion. Aromatherapy uses the power of that association to add another dimension of relaxation and healing to your massage.
SCALP MASSAGE: Stress starts in our heads so what better place to begin a massage. It is a luxurious addition to any massage and is designed to alleviate stress at the source.
SUGAR FOOT SCRUB: The foot massage is customized to your preferences and is a wonderful addition to any massage– after all, your feet are your foundation.
