Relaxation Massage Over time, the body builds up unhealthy amounts of stress hormones in response to work deadlines, traffic jams, relationship problems and more. These hormones can cause physical problems, like digestive issues, headaches and sleeplessness. Relaxation massage decreases the amount of stress hormones in the body, leaving clients feeling completely relaxed and rested, even after the session is over. The techniques used during the massage trigger changes in the brain's chemistry, resulting in reduced stress and an improved mood.

*Melt It Away* is our exclusive and most "Aggressive" approach to melting tension away. Combining the three most effective modalities offered at JP's Massage, for tension relieve (Hot Stones, Cupping and Deep Tissue Sculpting) into a 2hr session, makes this approach highly effective. The Heat of the stones kindly softens the tissue, allowing the cups to be even more effective at melting that chronic tension away and extinguishing trigger points; to then go with deep tissue sculpting for any stubborn knots. Finishing up with those warm river stones for a perfect, relaxing and nurturing 2 hour massage!

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.

 

Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain in order to reach the sub-layer of muscles and the fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles.

 

 

Now you’re probably familiar with the therapeutic benefits of Deep Tissue Massage and how it loosens knots, increases range of motion, reduces pain and inflammation. When Cupping is added to the massage session, we are able to get even faster results with less pain.

 

Cupping along the spine stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system to producing a relaxing and sedating effect on the recipient, and it’s not uncommon for them to fall asleep. When treating clients who suffer with low back pain, the silicone cups allows to go deep without causing clients much pain/disconfort.

Reiki is a Japanese system of energy healing which promotes health and wellbeing through the laying on of hands.  The term 'Reiki’ can be translated as “universal life energy”.  During a session, the practitioner becomes a conduit for this energy, infusing it into the body and energy field of their client.  Reiki works by opening up blockages in the natural flow of energy thus unlocking and bolstering the body’s own vast intelligence and healing capacity. 

 

Reiki can be used to address issues both physical and mental/emotional, as well as to manage pain and promote stress reduction, deep relaxation and feelings of balance, wellbeing and calm.  Because it works by supporting and strengthening the vital energy and healing capacity of the person receiving Reiki, it can be potentially beneficial in alleviating a huge variety of emotional and physical ailments.  It is also enjoyed by many who are already quite well, in order to promote centering and contentment, as well as to gain body awareness and emotional ease.  Some of the issues it is commonly used to address are pain, fatigue and lethargy, injury recovery, anxiety, cancer, fibromyalgia, sleep problems.

 

The Reiki energy is inherently balancing and will tend to flow to the places it is needed most.  Each session can be further individualized based on the feedback of the client and the intuition of the practitioner.

Polices

Other Polices

The therapists provide only therapeutic massage, which is strictly non-sexual/sensual.  Inappropriate verbal or non-verbal sexual behavior would result in termination of the session and payment for the entire session will be necessary.

Client/Therapist Relationship

The therapist and client's relationship will be based on a mutual intention of supporting the client strictly in their therapeutic goals.

Scope of Practice

The therapist will only provide services for which they are qualified.  If a therapist is unable to provide the support a client needs, they can refer the client to the appropriate professionals.

Client Rights

We encourage clients to speak up about their needs and preferences, such as areas they'd like to have more or less attention, or anything that would help them be more comfortable.  A client's input will always be accepted and appreciated.

Confidentiality

Every client's privacy and confidentiality will be upheld at all times.  Except for the case of a court subpoena, the therapists' records are kept strictly confidential.
 

Privacy and Undraping

In most cases, the client undresses completely for a massage; however it is entirely up to every client's discretion the level at which they feel comfortable disrobing.  The client is afforded time to undress alone before the massage begins.  During the massage, only the area of the client's body that is being worked on will be uncovered – the rest will be draped with linens.  A client's privacy and modesty will always be respected.

If a therapist must cancel a session, they will try to give the client 24 hours notice.  Furthermore, they will offer to find the client another qualified therapist, or to reschedule the appointment.
If a client must cancel an appointment, this must be done 24 hours in advance.  If a client fails to do so, they may be charged for the session (except in cases of emergency).
If a client is late to a session, the therapist will do their best to accommodate and fit in a full session.  However, if scheduling does not allow for this, the client will still be charged for the full session.

 

Hygiene

Therapists will have washcloths available for clients who would like to clean up before their session.  Therapists ask that clients please be mindful of cleanliness for the session.  Likewise therapists work in only sanitary conditions, using clean sheets for every session and sanitizing hands and arms before sessions and as needed throughout.

 

Safety and Inappropriate Behavior

The safety and comfort of both therapist and client are very important.  Either can terminate the session at any time if uncomfortable for any reason.
Intoxicant Policy:  Alcohol and drugs can significantly reduce the benefits of massage, and may even cause harm.  Therefore, if a client comes to a session under the influence, the therapist may refuse to offer their services, and the client will still be charged for the session.
