It's ok to have questions about what I do. Here are some of the most common questions I get regarding services:
do I wear for Sports Massage?
For most people, wearing athletic wear is great, as we may do doing lots of stretching. We may also need less clothing to do specific types of work. However, I can generally perform my work to whatever your comfort level is at the time.
I also call Cupping, Myofascial Decompression. We use a variety of suction cups to decompress the tissue, versus compression. Compression is what happens when I do typical massage. Both can have the same effect, however, I find that some people respond better to one or the other.
is Rock Tape?
A special kind of tape known as kinesiology tape. First used by acupuncturists and chiropractors in Japan. Today kinesiology tape is used by athletic trainers and others throughout the world to treat injuries and improve sports performance. I will work with you to provide the correct taping application for your needs, if you would like to experience the benefits of taping.
Products I use
I use a couple different types of massage creams, depending on what we are doing. I am very careful about the products I use, because it will affect the outcomes I want for you. I never want to you feel all oily. I carefully select products based on their ingredients and consistency in their production. Most of my creams are made locally in Massachusetts, which also helps with shipping.
