How long of a massage should I schedule? 6

Massages are usually available in 30, 60, and 90 minute time lengths.

One of the benefits of having my own business is that I can make up something new if that’s what you want.  There’s no company policy on time that I have to follow.  Do you have a favorite number?  Do you want a massage in a prime number increment?  I have the flexibility to do that if you want.

Do you have a headache, stiff neck, back pain, or something that just needs relief?  You can come in for  a shorter time than 30 minutes.  Sometimes just 10 or 15 minutes can make a huge difference for you (and the people around you too).

Every time you come in, we will talk about what you need that day and I’ll adjust the appointment based on that conversation.

All appointments include using Neural Reset Therapy, which is a pain free way to reset your muscles back to normal.  It’s done with clothes on and is pain free to do.  It’s effective even on long term pain.  Muscles don’t just feel better – they go back to normal.

Here is what you can expect with each time selection.

30 minute massage

In 30 minutes you can get your upper body or lower body muscles reset back to normal and then enjoy some regular massage.  It’s great to focus on painful or problem areas.

Some people come in regularly for 30 minutes because it fits their time schedule and it gives them the pain relief and stress relief they need.

It does provide you enough time to relax.  It is not enough time for a full massage though.

60 minute massage

60 minutes is the time frame scheduled the most with me.  First I’ll reset all your muscles and then move to regular massage.  I’ll prioritize any problem areas if needed.

A full massage includes work on your head, neck, arms, legs, and back.  You will be deeply relaxed, your stress will be left in the room, your problems will have shrunk down to manageable size and your muscles will be ready to go again.  You will actually be able to turn your head to look around the room as well as have the ability to pick up something from the floor.

Some people request more time on one area and not spend as much on another, or skip it completely.   Some like only an upper body massage, and not work on the legs.  That’s fine – it’s your time to get what you need taken care of.

90 minute massage

A 90 minute massage allows all your muscles to be reset with plenty of time following for a full massage.  It allows extra time on a problem area if needed.  If there’s not a problem area, it allows time to do a complete thorough massage.  The extra time makes a big difference for many people to thoroughly relax and back to feeling like themselves again.

If 90 minutes is not long enough, let me know and we will work out something else.

Which one do you want?
