That said, massage therapy acts on the functioning of the whole body because it brings calm and relief, relieves pain, improves sleep, promotes good blood and lymphatic circulation, contributes to the elimination of toxins, favorises the proper functioning of vital organs and may help to increase the respiratory capacity.
Massage therapy is beneficial to people of all age groups (children, adults, elderly), pregnant women, people with different and / or special health conditions. The massage therapist will adapt his technique to the condition and needs of each individual.
A massage therapy session lasts 60 to 90 minutes, depending on the client’s request. Prior to the massage, the massage therapist will use a detailed health questionnaire to know the particularities of his client, discuss with him in order to learn about his expectations and needs. Throughout the massage, the massage therapist will invite the client to express himself on the discomfort felt, if any.
It should be noted that, if desired, the client can keep his underwear during the massage. Only the massaged area is uncovered during the massage to ensure the comfort and privacy of the client; the rest of the body being covered with a sheet. If necessary, the massage therapist may use different positioning cushions, heating pads, oils, creams, warm blankets; this in order to adapt his massage to the particularities of each and maximize the customer experience. Moreover, the massage is performed in a room inviting to relaxation (soft lighting, relaxing music, etc.)
