In this post I am going to do my best to bust 5 common myths about massage. So here goes
1 I can take it
Probably the biggest myth is that the harder the pressure the better. We only need to use enough pressure to release the tension and it is way more imporant where the pressure is applied than how hard it is! Honestly you can trust me on this I am a professional with years of experience.
2 All massage are the same
No they are not. Our deep tissue and sports massages are customise to the client and that particular point in time. Even if two poeople go to the same masseur at Vitality Therapy with the same complaint, e.g. lower back pain there treatments will probably be different. The reason is that our treatments are based on your body and everyone's body is unique!
3 Can't you just fix me?
We wish we could, but miricals are the domain of the catholic church not us!
4 Benefits are only temporay
There is evidence that with regular massage the benefits are cumulative.
5 No need to discuss my medical history
The more we know about your body the better we are able to address your problems, this means your medical history is key.
