THAT KNOW EXACTLY HOW TO RELEASE YOUR TIGHT KNOTS

The 3 Most Common Reasons To Get A Massage

From our experience, most people want to achieve one of the following three goals:
Reduce Stress With Massage

1. You Want To Reduce Stress

1. You want to reduce stress

Stress is universal, and it’s not always bad. Whenever you jump to catch a badly thrown ball, feel especially energetic before an important meeting, or hit the brakes in time to avoid a car accident, stress is doing its job. The adrenaline boosting your heart rate and the cortisol boosting your blood sugar.
The truth is that feeling a little bit of pressure is actually a good thing. It’s only when stress levels build up to a level that they become unmanageable that you will start to notice the symptoms of feeling overwhelmed. With a regular massage treatment at our Glasgow studio, you will be able to maintain and manage stress levels more effectively.
Reduce Soreness

2. You want to get rid of soreness

2. You want to get rid of knots

Although you may not notice it, you may be overworking a particular muscle in your body and as a result it will build up and turn into a tightly formed ball that makes you feel uncomfortable. By releasing up this tense muscle build up, you’ll increase the flexibility in your body and feel less strain in movement.
A massage after vigorous exercise unquestionably feels good, and it seems to reduce pain and help muscles recover. Many people — both athletes and health professionals – have long contended it eases inflammation, improves blood flow and reduces muscle tightness. But until now no one has understood why massage has this apparently beneficial effect.
Speed Up Recovery

“Blood flow can remain elevated for 30 minutes or more after exercise, so you wouldn’t expect to see big changes with massage,” she says. “But there has been some suggestion of a recovery benefit among athletes who have massages one or two hours after exertion.”
During an intense workout, stress and tension will build up in your body’s soft tissues. Massage can help you get back to full fitness by draining away fatigue, relieving swelling, reducing muscle tension, promoting flexibility and preventing injuries.

What We’re Trying To Achieve:

We believe that tension in the body is one of the primary barriers for people to achieving the goals in life.

It’s our job to help release the tension in your body, allowing you to use your mind and body to do everything you want it to.

Had a great experience at Deserved Massage yesterday. I have a few joint issues and a recent injury, so was a little concerned about a proper deep-tissue massage, but Tara put me at ease immediately. She's clearly very experienced and I felt less sore and more relaxed than I have in months when I left. Lovely heated bed too! Cannot recommend highly enough, will definitely be back.

Frequently Asked Questions

Depending on the  technique your therapist uses, you may or may not need to undress. For a full body massage, it is recommended that you remove everything but your underwear.

Lymphatic Drainage

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do during the massage treatment?

Make yourself comfortable. If your therapist wants you to adjust your position, she or he will either move you or will ask you to move what is needed. Otherwise, change your position anytime to make yourself more comfortable. Many people close their eyes and relax completely during a session; others prefer to talk. It’s up to you. It is your massage, and whatever feels natural to you is the best way to relax. Do not hesitate to ask questions at any time.

Lymphatic Drainage

Frequently Asked Questions

How will the massage feel?

It usually depends on the techniques used. Many massage therapists use a form of Swedish massage, which is often a baseline for practitioners. In a general Swedish massage, your session may start with broad, flowing strokes (effleurage) that will help calm your nervous system and relax exterior muscle tension. As your body becomes relaxed, pressure will gradually be increased to relax specific areas and relieve areas of muscular tension. Often, a light oil or lotion is used to allow your muscles to be massaged without causing excessive friction to the skin. Do not hesitate to ask questions or mention if you feel any discomfort so that the massage therapist can use another approach or technique.

Lymphatic Drainage

Frequently Asked Questions

Will the massage oils used make me break out?

Most massage therapists use hypoallergenic massage oils or lotions. However, if you have sensitivity to certain types of oils or lotion please bring it to the massage therapist’s attention as most practitioners have an assortment of oils and lotions on hand.

Lymphatic Drainage

Frequently Asked Questions

Is massage always appropriate?

No, there are several medical conditions that would make massage inappropriate. That’s why it is necessary that you fill out the health history forms and before you begin your session. The massage therapist will ask general health questions to rule out if you have any contraindications to massage. It is very important that you inform the practitioner of any health problems or medications you are taking. If you are under a doctor’s care, it is strongly advised that you receive a written recommendation for massage prior to any session. Your massage therapist may require a recommendation or approval from your doctor.

Lymphatic Drainage

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will the treatment last?

The average full-body massage treatment lasts approximately one hour. A half-hour appointment only allows time for a partial massage session, such as neck and shoulders, back or legs and feet. Many people prefer a 60- to 90-minute session for optimal relaxation. Always allow relaxation time prior to and after the session.

Lymphatic Drainage

Frequently Asked Questions

How will I feel after the massage treatment?

Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience freedom from long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity which can last for days. Since toxins are released from your soft tissues during a massage, it is recommended you drink plenty of water following your massage. Massage therapists sometimes recommend a hot Epsom salt bath that encourages the release of toxins that may have been stirred up from the massage treatment.
