Massage Therapy vs Pampering Massage

4 May

Your Body Needs is a massage therapy studio – but we are not a spa. We don’t use terms such as “indulging” or “pampering” to refer to our massages. There are still many people who think of spa locations when they need a massage. A spa is often the choice should you be looking to take a few hours to be spoiled with royalties such as a robe and perhaps a light refreshment. Some of the choices at spas will be a massage of sorts. Most of the time, their massages tend to be light touch and have an assembly line feel to them. This is fine if it works for you and you don’t mind paying premium prices when all you need is a good massage.  A good massage is one that is unique and directed to your body’s needs. It should start with a conversation about the treatment you will be receiving that day between you and your therapist and you should feel a part of the treatment process. So, if your body is feeling tired and sore – it isn’t pampering that you need- your body needs therapy. Massage therapy is highly effective in the promotion of your health and preventive maintainance. Take the time to find the right massage for you and your body’s needs.

    I Agree with you. Spa is the 2nd name of pampering. I think Massage therapy is the best way to relax your body and mind.

    Oh, I agree totally! Massage and aromatherapy have been a huge boon in keeping my stiff and aching muscles in order. I find myself working in locations that aren’t conducive to a good ergonomic posture and that accumulates over time. Massage and aromatherapy keep me from hurting myself and are a necessary part of staying healthy and fit. A spa, while it could be a wonderful experience, is much more of a luxury with a different purpose.

    This gets to the point.. a good massage gives a period of time of contact “between you and your (massage) therapist”
    I agree that a lot of spa treatments seem to be organised as if they are simply putting people through an assembly line of touch.
    Much better to take the trouble to find a good massage therapist that you can relate to and go to him or her for your all you treatments
