There’s no denying the power of touch through massage therapy and bodywork. Regardless of the way we describe it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (stress relief, pain management or a pampering gift for ourselves), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.
A typical massage appointment at A to Zen starts with a thorough consultation about the client’s specific needs and goals for the massage session. Current conditions, injuries and areas of pain or tension are discussed along with an agreed upon plan for the appointment.
We offer a variety of massage styles and treatments, with our Custom Massages being the most popular. While most clients opt for a combination of relaxation and pain relief in a full body session, some people prefer concentrated work in the areas of their body where they feel the most discomfort or pain, stress and tension. Typical concerns include shoulder pain, neck pain or back pain, sore muscles from working out, sciatica, and general stress.
Regardless of the type of massage you receive, after each session, your Massage Therapist will provide recommendations for future massage treatments, home care, stretching and other possible referrals that can best help you reach your wellness and health care goals.
Hot Stone Massage is a natural therapy in which smooth, warmed stones are positioned on the client’s body and used by the therapist during the massage to warm the muscles. This can be quite soothing and relaxing as the stones send heat deep into the body and muscles.
