Can I get a deep tissue massage at Earthbody?
We incorporate deep tissue into all treatments. Deep Tissue massage refers to the layer contacted when working, the deep layers of muscle. It is extremely therapeutic when crafted with other modalities to allow the muscle to naturally open so that contact can be made with a deeper layer. We recommend the 1.5HR SIGNATURE MASSAGE for those seeking deeper work. 

This is my first massage. What do I need to know or do?

Arrive early. Fill out the intake in advance and plan for extra time to park so that you can arrive 5 minutes before your appointment.

Speak up. Speak to your therapist about what’s going on with your body and let them know if you have an intention for your session

Breathe deeply. The fuller your inhale and exhale, the easier it is for the muscles to unwind. Make the most of your session by deepening your breath.

Do nothing. You may want to help by lifting an arm or a leg. It’s actually easier for us if you refrain from engaging any muscles while the work is happening.

Do I get undressed?
You can undress to your level of comfort. Throughout the session, you will be covered with a sheet and blanket with only the area being worked on exposed.

What is the difference between the 1HR and 1.5HR Signature Massage?
The 1HR Signature Massage is tailored for those with a regular care who are looking to maintain a state of health. It’s also an excellent treatment to settle the body and relieve physical discomfort. The 1.5HR Signature Massage is more specifically for those who have not had bodywork for some time, those with chronic pain, or individuals looking for deeper work.

Is massage or bodywork a good idea if I’m feeling under the weather?

If you’re sick it’s best to rest at home. Please follow guidelines of waiting at least 2 weeks from the onset of illness.

I recently had an injury. Can massage help?

Speak with your Primary Care Physician about the best method of care for you. Depending on the injury massage and bodywork can usually help by directly working on the injury or working on the muscles surrounding the injury that have been taking on more of the work.

How often should I receive a bodywork session?
For maintenance we recommend once a month for at least an hour. If you are coming for a specific concern or pain relief, we recommend once a week for at least 4-6 weeks. During this time your body will begin to open and release. it’s important to continue regular care before muscles return tight holding patterns. The most important thing in the end isn’t how often you return but that you do.

What’s the difference between massage and a bodywork?
Massage works with a prescribed series or techniques to relieve muscle and overall calm the body. Massage is a traditional means to heal the body, mind, and spirit. Bodywork tends to be more of a dialogue incorporating several modalities at once. However massage and bodywork at Earthbody are both tailor to you. When you come in for treatment just let your therapist know if you’d like your session tailored more for repair or relaxation and we’ll take it from there.
