Massage

Available in Person in Atlanta, GA. (for now!)

Massage is often thought of as an indulgence, but it can also be a powerful tool for health and well-being!  

From easing pain and inflammation, to soothing stress and anxiety, massage has the ability to help you power down the mind and calm the nervous system, soothing the body back to a natural state of balance.


Swedish + Deep Tissue Massage 

Swedish + Deep Tissue massage is exceptionally beneficial for relaxing the body, mind, and spirit.  Ian starts with Swedish Massage techniques that increase the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.  He then transitions into Deep tissue with deeper pressure which is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints). 


What to expect:

Please arrive 10-15 minutes early and take into account traffic.  We will discuss goals and intentions for the visit.  

  • Ian, your Massage Therapist, will leave the room so you may undress to your comfort level, and lay under the blankets on the massage table.

  • The massage therapist will consider information about your physical condition, medical history, lifestyle, stress levels, and any areas of physical pain that could affect your massage therapy outcome.

  • Music might be played. If you find music distracting, tell your massage therapist. The same goes for talking during your session.
     
  • The massage table is padded, and may have extra attachments or cushions, such as a face cradle, which allows you to lie facedown without turning your head or neck.
     
  • Massage therapists often use lotion. If you're allergic to lotions, tell your massage therapist beforehand.
     
  • The benefits of massage are cumulative, so work with your massage therapist to customize a plan to meet your health and wellness goals.
