Welcome to Oriental Massage
We offers a wide range of massage therapies performed by experienced massage therapists.
Stress can take its toll on the body as well as the mind. Stress causes our muscles to tighten up and become stiff. Progressive muscle relaxation is designed to release this muscle tension and relax the entire body. It also helps to lower your pulse rate, reduce blood pressure, and minimize perspiration.
Lie down on the floor, on your bed, or another comfortable place and breathe in deeply.
Begin to constrict the muscles in your body one at a time, starting with your feet. Hold each muscle tight for a few seconds, and then relax. Work your way up to your head. By the time you get there your whole body (and your mind) will be relaxed.
Therapeutic massage does not treat, heal, prescribe or cure anything. It is complementary healthcare, not a substitute for a Medical Doctor.
Some conditions are “red flags” that prohibit massage, including phlebitis, some cancer, infectious disease, and some skin and certain cardiac conditions.
Your therapist should take a health history, but it is always best to consult your physician if you have any concerns. “Don’t wait until you feel like a train wreck before you come to see us.” We, like many therapists, offer a discount for those who come regularly; it makes the work more effective for you and easier on both of us.
