One of the questions I hear most often is, “How long should my massage be?
There are several factors to consider when deciding how much long your next massage should be. I encourage you to take a few minutes and just tune into your body with the following questions in mind.
How does your Body & Mind feel?
Are you feeling pain anywhere? Limited movement? Do you feel wound up, tight or anxious? Have a hard time sleeping or relaxing?
What does your self care routine look like?
Do you get regular bodywork, or is this your first massage in a year or more? Are you physically active, or have a regular meditation or yoga practice? If it’s been a long time since you had a massage and you don’t regularly feel connected to your body, you may be surprised by how long it takes to relax.
Standard Session Lengths
30 Minutes: Recommended for specific work on an area of injury or concern.
1 Hour: Recommended for clients receiving regular treatments on an ongoing basis, and can either address specific areas of injury or concern, or provide a full body treatment for relaxation purposes.
90 Minutes: Recommended for your first session. 90 minutes is sufficient to include the full body and address specific areas of injury or concern. Includes hot stones and hot towels. 90 Minute sessions are 15% off during the entire month of October, 2015.
2 Hours: Recommended for deep relaxation. Length allows for a full body treatment, including hot towels, hot stones and energy work.
