Whether you’re experiencing neck soreness or back pain, our personalized massage therapy sessions alleviate the discomfort and soothe your senses. Backsmart Wellness Center believes in holistic and conservative treatments that address the root cause of your chronic pain conditions without drugs, opioids, or surgeries. Our trauma-trained therapists identify the source of your pain to create a unique massage therapy experience to improve your overall wellness.
What is Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy involves the manipulation of the body’s soft tissues to improve overall wellness. Massage techniques like deep tissue and trigger point improve blood flow to the injured site, transporting essential nutrients that activate your body’s natural healing response. Some massage techniques also break excessive scar tissues that cause stiffness and discomfort.
Since each individual is unique, massages are also created for each individual. The massage therapist identifies the root cause of your pain and discomfort to utilize various massage techniques, such as trigger point and deep tissue, to address your unique needs. In some cases, we combine various massage techniques to provide enhanced results.
The Massage Therapy Experience
When you arrive for your scheduled appointment, you’ll be asked to fill out a personalized patient form to disclose your medical history, physical conditions, and injuries. You should arrive at least 15 minutes ahead of time because you must give us accurate and detailed information.
The information revealed in the patient form will help the massage therapist create a treatment plan for you, selecting the ideal pressure, targeted areas, and techniques. Your therapist will also go over the form with you to better understand your specific goals and concerns.
Your massage therapy session includes a few minutes of consultation and dressing. The therapist will step outside while you disrobe (according to your comfort) and lay on the massage bed underneath a sheet. The therapist will only uncover the parts of the body being worked on at any given moment, ensuring complete privacy even during the treatment.
You can ask for a full-body massage or a focused massage on specific parts of your body. Depending on your specific goals, the therapist will implement the necessary massage techniques. At this stage, your comfort is of the utmost importance, so feel free to talk as much or as little as you want.
Once the massage is over, the therapist will step outside the room while you get dressed. Once you’re ready, the therapist will guide you back to the lobby and offer you a glass of water. You must stay hydrated after the massage. Your therapist will also recommend the ideal massage therapy schedule based on your specific goals.
Massage Therapy Modifications
You can also modify the massage therapy experience with exfoliants, aromatherapy, hot stones, and other methods. The enhancements and modifications provide additional benefits, such as improving your skin quality, alleviating stress, and providing added comfort. Our therapists will gladly discuss your additional options before the therapy session.
We use essential oils extracted from fruits, flowers, and herbs to enhance your massage therapy experience. Depending on your goals, we can recommend aromatherapy oils to soothe your mind and body.
We use exfoliating sugars and scrubs to rejuvenate your skin and remove layers of debris and dead skin cells from the skin’s surface. After the exfoliation, we use body butter to moisturize the exfoliated skin, boosting your appearance.
You can enhance your massage with a hot stone treatment wherein the therapist places hot stones in strategic pressure points. When combined with massage, the hot stone treatment reduces stress and muscle tension.
We use a cutting-edge massage gun that utilizes percussion technology to ease muscle pains and discomfort. When coupled with massage, the massage gun relieves tension and aches from your entire body.
