Directions and how to find our office

Therapeutic Massage In Albany, NY

Therapeutic massage combines Swedish and deep tissue strokes to promote full body relaxation while also targeting any tight or sore areas. Add to your regular self-care routine to relieve stress, decrease pain, boost your immune system, and release feel-good endorphins into your brain.

Preventative Medicine

Many people use therapeutic bodywork as part of their holistic healthcare plan. It can help prevent stress-related diseases. In clients who are at risk of injury caused by repetitive movement, work, poor posture, medical conditions, surgery or structural issues, Swedish and deep tissue techniques can help prevent symptoms from worsening and injuries from happening by releasing tight muscles and increasing joint mobility.

Pain Relief

Scientific research shows that the human brain senses touch faster than it senses pain. This phenomenon is known as the gate control theory. That’s why a child instinctively grabs his leg after skinning his knee. Touch naturally relieves pain. Therapeutic bodywork also relieves pain by addressing one of the most common causes of pain: tight muscles. Painful, overworked muscles as well as unbalanced muscle groups which pull the body out of alignment can all be treated with the trained human touch.

Relaxation

Induce deep relaxation by increasing circulation, releasing muscular tension, and providing you with a quiet time and space for restoration.

Sports and Manual Labor

Speed up the recovery time of muscles after hard work and athletic activity. Naturally flush out lactic acid from the tissue, return fresh nutrients and blood to the tissue, and help realign muscle fibers.

4 Hands Massage In Albany, NY

This service is performed with two therapists working at the same time. The practitioners may mirror each other, giving long swedish strokes up and down the body, or they may focus on two different body parts at the same time. For example, abdomen and neck, or feet and head, or shoulders and low back. The possible combinations of different techniques and strokes in a 4 Hands Massage are endless. Some say it’s hard to tell where one therapist starts and the other ends. The result is a very thorough and relaxing therapeutic treatment.

Prices:
60 min – $160
90 min – $240

Client Testimonial:
“I’ve been getting regular massages for the past 15-20 years and the  experience I had yesterday was right up there near the top in  enjoyability (not sure that’s a real word but you get my meaning:) I was definitely relaxed, more than I usually am with just a regular massage  and I feel great today. I especially enjoyed when you were working on my stomach and neck/shoulder areas at the same time. I’m a big fan of  getting the stomach massaged anyway so that was really nice. It seems  comforting somehow to have that area done. Not sure of the exact reason but it’s always been one of my favorite areas. Long  story short, I think I’m addicted to the 4 handed massage already” -Thomas W.

Information for New Clients

What to Expect

New Client Intake

We strive to be an environmentally friendly business. This is why we don’t give clients paper intake forms to fill out. We keep all of our client records on a secure private online system.
If you have any medical concerns or allergies, please notify your therapist verbally and she or he will design a safe treatment according to your needs. If you have high blood pressure, a lot of fluid-moving strokes like effleurage (rubbing up and down the skin) might not be good for you. Your therapist may use more gentle touch, compression, and acupressure if you have high blood pressure. Also let your therapist know if you have any injuries, recent surgeries, or illness. If you are currently sick with a fever or cold, please stay home until you feel better.
 
Before the session starts, tell your therapist if you’re seeking a full body treatment or more focus on certain areas. Let her or him know if you’ve had any recent injuries or areas that should be avoided. During the session, speak up if you feel the pressure is too light, too deep, or not in the right spot. You’re welcome to tell your therapist to spend more time in one spot, as well.

Draping

All services are performed on a cushioned table with oil, lotion, or Shea butter. The table has clean sheets changed after every appointment. You may undress completely for the session or keep some of your clothes or underwear on – it is your choice. For women it is easier to rub your whole back and shoulders if you take your bra off.

Your therapist will leave the room so you can get ready in private and lay down on the table underneath a sheet or pillow case. Some people prefer a full sheet and blanket covering, while others opt for a pillow case or towel for less coverage. Let your practitioner know what works best for you. Draping is required by New York State Law. The therapist will never touch you under the drape or clothes.

During Session

It is the client’s responsibility to communicate with his or her therapist about pressure and comfort level during the session. Please speak up if something doesn’t feel right to you. Each room comes with a space heater which can be turned up if you get cold.

Payment

If you are using a gift certificate or pre-paid voucher, please present it to your massage therapist before starting the session. We accept cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.

Possible Side Effects

This is your opportunity to safely and effectively relieve stress and ease muscular pain, however, some mild side effects may occur within one or two days after a session. Not everyone experiences side effects, but the most common are fatigue and slight soreness especially if deep tissue knots were released.

Another normal side effect you might experience is release of emotion. You will eventually feel lighter after your body naturally processes the emotions that are stored in your tissues.

We recommend drinking fluids, stretching gently, and getting plenty of rest to reap the most benefits from your time with us.

Health Benefits

Many of our clients have tried chiropractors, physical therapists, psychotherapists, medication, surgery, and more to heal their physical and emotional ailments. Most people report that our therapeutic bodywork services are complimentary to these efforts. Some people find that after visiting us on a regular basis they can reduce or eliminate other forms of treatment. We use our hands to promote good health by naturally relaxing the mind and body. We look forward to assisting you in reducing stress and living life to the fullest.
