What do I wear for my massage session?
When coming in for your massage, it doesn’t really matter what you are wearing. However, you may find it easier after your massage if you have clothes that are easier to slip back into.
Can anyone receive massage therapy?
Massage Therapy is great for everyone. However, we do ask that if you are currently under doctor’s care/treatment for a specific illness or injury, that you receive permission from your doctor to get a massage. Most likely they will tell you it’s ok.
Do I need to come to my appointment early to fill out any type of paperwork?
If it is your first time at Matrix Spa & Massage, we do ask that you get here about 5 minutes early. Our intake form is very brief and won’t take more than a minute or 2 to fill out.
What can I do post massage to lessen any soreness?
If you received a Swedish massage or reflexology, it is very likely that you will not feel any soreness. However, it is still VERY important for you to drink a lot of water. During all massage sessions, toxins are released into your blood stream, and to prevent feeling sick, plenty of water is recommended.
If you received a deep tissue or sports massage, or even in some cases a Hot Stone massage, you will want to take a very hot Epsom Salt bath after your massage. We recommend Dr. Teal’s Epsom Salt with Eucalyptus which can be purchased at Walmart or Smiths.
Are there types of massages that hurt?
Sometimes, depending on how tense your muscles are, a deep tissue or sports massage may be a little painful. If it is ever too much pain, make sure and let your therapist know and they will use less pressure. Don’t be shy to ask questions or give feedback to your therapist throughout your session. This will help assure you are happy with the massage you receive.
How often should I see a massage therapist?
We recommend a massage at least once a month. However, depending on your individual situation, your therapist might recommend more or less often. It is always best to discuss timing with them after your session.
