You might think of massage therapy when you’re stressed out, but it offers a variety of benefits ranging from stress relief to improving circulation and injury recovery. Whether you want to treat yourself to a relaxing treatment or need help to relax trigger points and other musculoskeletal issues, make an appointment for massage therapy treatments with the certified and licensed professionals at Solaris Laser & Skin Care in Vienna, Virginia.
Massage therapy helps to relax your muscles and other soft tissue to reduce cramping, trigger points, and discomfort. Solaris Laser & Skin Care’s massage therapists are fully trained and licensed to provide effective and therapeutic massages to address a range of issues.
In addition to helping to relax your muscles and soft tissues, massage is known to increase your circulation, which brings much-needed oxygen and nutrients to your muscles. Massage also helps to clear toxins and waste products from your body and stimulate your lymphatic system. Some clients find that massage helps to release endorphins, which are often called the body’s natural painkillers, promoting an overall sense of improved well-being and reduced stress.
Before any massage begins, your massage therapist talks to you about any aches or pains you are experiencing and asks you if there are certain parts of your body you would like to have them target. Your therapist needs to know about your general well-being and is happy to answer any questions.
For the massage, you may disrobe to your level of comfort and lie down on the treatment table with a sheet draped over your body. Depending on your needs, you may begin facing up or facing down. Throughout the session, your masseuse uses her hands and arms to rub your muscles, typically using a lotion to reduce any friction on the skin. You can let the massage therapist know if you prefer more or less pressure, so they can adjust to meet your needs and comfort level.
Massage treatments are available in 60-, 90-, and 120-minute sessions.
There are many benefits to having massage therapy. It can help to relieve muscle tension, reduce fatigue and stress, and release endorphins to boost your mood. It can help you to recover from an injury, reduce the amount of discomfort you experience, and even help to improve your recovery and range of motion. Many clients find that massage also helps to improve their posture.
Massages at Solaris Laser & Skin Care are fully customizable to meet your needs and to help you relax and feel refreshed.
