Arturo gave me one of the best massages I have had in my entire life. He was so professional—made me feel comfortable right away with standard but insightful health status questions and then asked my preferences about his wearing a mask or not.

Frequently Asked Questions

The most common questions about how our business works and what can do for you.

WHAT IS THE DIFFEERENCE BETWEEN MEDICAL MASSAGE AND REGULAR MASSAGE?
Spa massage and medical massage may feel similar, but their techniques differ. During a spa massage, the techniques likely focus on relaxation. A medical massage therapist will use a broader set of therapies for muscle health and recovery.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU WAIT BETWEEN MASSAGES?
It is recommended to wait at least 48 hours between each firm pressure massage session. You should get no more than a maximum of three firm pressure treatments per week. Other strong massage styles, such as sports massage, should be treated similarly.

CAN I STILL HAVE A SPORTS MASSAGE EVEN IF I DON’T DO SPORT?
Absolutely! Here to massage lake chelan. Even if you don’t do any form of sport or exercise, our everyday movements still put stress on our body, which can, over time, lead to long-term issues. Many office workers, for example, who spend long hours every day sitting at a desk suffer from pain and stiffness in their neck, shoulders and lower back, which can become quite serious problems if left unchecked. Regular sports massage will help to ease the strain put on these areas of your body, reducing the risk of serious problems arising. Sports massage will help your muscles, as well as your mind, to become more relaxed and loose, allowing them to move freely and preventing them from becoming too tight and stiff. Massage helps to drain away fatigue, to relieve swelling, to reduce muscle tension, to promote flexibility and to prevent injuries. People who drive a lot as part of their job have similar problems to the office worker and can benefit from sports massage in the same way. Anyone working in a physically demanding job where movements such as lifting and carrying heavy objects are regularly required can also benefit from regular sports massage to help counteract the stress put on their knee joints, lower back and shoulders.
WILL SPORTS MASSAGE HELP MY INJURY?
Yes. Sports massage is proven to reduce recovery time, sometimes dramatically, by shortening the time it takes for injuries to heal, and makes the after effects “better”. Sports Massage reduces the swelling and o edema associated with soft tissue injuries. After a serious injury, Sports Massage helps form strong, pliable scar tissue instead of the usual random stiff scar tissue, so that range of motion and tissue extensibility are maintained. A short list of benefits are:
  • Shortens the time it takes for an injury to heal.
  • Helps reduce swelling and o edema.
  • Helps form soft, pliable scar tissue.
  • Maintains or increases range of motion.
  • Eliminates splinting in associated muscle tissue.
  • Locates and deactivates “trigger points” that form as a result of the original trauma.
  • Helps get athletes back into training sooner with less chance of re-injury.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET A SPORTS MASSAGE?
That depends on several factors: If you are an athlete/participate in sport, factors such as training volume and intensity need to be considered; also whether you have chronic pain or acute injury, etc. If you don’t participate in sports, then occupational factors may come into play, for example, do you sit at a desk all day and have a tight neck and shoulders? Do you carry out heavy manual work, which makes you tight and prone to injury? For some athletes, a weekly massage gives huge results. Other athletes only get an occasional Sports Massage if they’re in pain. The best way to reduce the effects of hard training, stress or occupational aches and pains, is with regular Sports Massage. It is a fact that even getting massaged once a month regularly has a long-lasting positive impact.
WILL ONE SINGLE SPORTS MASSAGE “FIX” MY PROBLEMS?
Sometimes yes. If you have a tight, painful neck and shoulder complex, for example, you can expect to come away from a Sports Massage experiencing a lot of relief, at least for a while. But it probably took you months or years to get that way. It’s not reasonable to expect permanent relief from an hour session of Sports Massage. The effects of Sports Massage are very much like the effects of athletic training. Your first bike ride won’t turn you into Bradley Wiggins, but a consistent training program will give you massive improvements. We provide the best Massage Lake Chelan wa
I AM PREGNANT, CAN I STILL HAVE A SPORTS MASSAGE?
During pregnancy, hormonal changes cause ligaments and joints to soften, leading to additional strain on the skeletal system. This often causes aches and pains, most commonly in the hips, buttocks and lower back. The increasing weight of the baby can pull on the lumbar spine, causing postural imbalances. These changes can be difficult to prepare for, but massage during pregnancy can help to reduce these discomforts and promote relaxation and a sense of well-being. Massage therapy during pregnancy can help:
  • Ease muscle and joint strain.
  • Reduce stress and anxiety.
  • Promote relaxation and sleep.
  • Reduce o edema and blood pressure.
  • Improve flexibility and energy levels.
  • Support your physiological and emotional needs.
ARE SPORTS MASSAGE PAINFUL?
A sports massage helps reduce tension, induce relaxation, and enable athletes to get better quality sleep. Getting enough and proper sleep is incredibly important for athletes because it promotes faster recovery time for injuries incurred. This also helps boost better performance.
ARE THERE TIMES THAT I SHOULDN’T GET A SPORTS MASSAGE?
Yes. Contraindications are conditions when you should not be massaged. The most common condition among athletes is that of an acute injury or inflammation. Usually, the first 72 hours after an injury is the acute stage. After the swelling and pain begin to diminish, massage is recommended. A partial list of contraindications is: fever, vascular conditions, severe heart disease, contagious skin conditions, inflammation, abrasions, cuts, hematomas, cancer, neuritis, recent surgery, infectious diseases, diabetes with vascular dysfunction, fractures, and acute injury. There are too many possible conditions to list here, so it is your responsibility to alert us of any medical condition or injury before a massage begins. Some conditions are localized, therefore, massage may take place except in the affected area. Always consult with your doctor if you are unsure.
WHAT IS ORTHOPEDIC MASSAGE?
Orthopedic massage is a type of injury rehabilitation that focuses on the muscles and soft tissues surrounding joints. The aim of orthopedic massage is to relieve pain while restoring balance to the tissues and create a fuller range of motion.
WHO IS JACK MEAGHER?
In the mid-1950s, Jack Meagher a pioneer in the field of massage therapy – coined the term "sportsmassage." Under that umbrella, he combined a series of specific soft tissue applications based on anatomy, physiology and muscular kinetics. The application of these techniques became known as the "Meagher Method" of sportsmassage. Jack was the massage therapist for two United States Equestrian Teams as well as for National Football League athletes represented by Professional Sports Management. Jack divided his work week between horses and humans, tending many of the top horses of the world, leading athletes in a variety of sports as well as European royalty. He served the United States Equestrian Teams at the Montreal Olympics in 1976 and at a number of World Championships in the U.S. and around the world. In recognition of his work, Jack was awarded the USET certificate of Achievement and an honorary membership in the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA). lake chelan massage

Kneading,Effleurage (Light/Firm Stroking) Rubbing,Tapotement or Tapping,Vibration Or Shaking.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THERAPY STRETCHING?
Stretching keeps the muscles flexible, strong, and healthy, and we need that flexibility to maintain a range of motion in the joints. Without it, the muscles shorten and become tight. Then, when you call on the muscles for activity, they are weak and unable to extend all the way.
WHAT SPORTS MASSAGE DOES?
Sports massage therapy helps work and loosen the muscle fibers of overworked areas to relieve lactic acid, along with all of the other painful toxins in the muscles and tissues, so that the body can remove and discard them quickly and efficiently.
WHO IS SPORTS MASSAGE FOR?
Sports massage is a type of massage therapy that targets areas of the body that are strained from repetitive and strenuous movements. One session can last between 60-90 minutes, and is ideal for people undergoing athletic training.
WILL SPORTS MASSAGE HELP GROIN STRAIN?
Sports massage can help work relax and stretch the groin and surrounding muscle groups to aid in recovery and to help regain motion and balance. It is best to ease your way back into vigorous activities due to a higher recurrence rate with groin strains.
WILL SPORTS MASSAGE HELP SHOULDER PAIN?
Massage therapy can help to strengthen and stabilise muscles, and improve posture and shoulder position. Firm pressure massage and trigger point massage therapy are particularly beneficial for shoulder pain, working to relieve tension along the nerve pathways of the neck and shoulder.
WILL SPORTS MASSAGE HELP WITH SHIN SPLINTS?
At first you might feel some soreness around your shinbone or light swelling and tenderness in your lower leg. The pain might appear during exercise, afterwards, or it might be constant. No matter when you're affected by shin splints, massage can help.
WHY SPORTS MASSAGE IS IMPORTANT?
Sports massage is proven to release and reduce tension in muscles, improve circulation and encourage the removal of waste products such as lactic acid during high intensity activity and can help to relax the body. All of this helps promote recovery and reduces the chance of muscle injury.
CAN SPORTS MASSAGE HELP WITH TENDONITIS?
Sports massage therapy is an effective way of managing and treating the pain caused by tendonitis. It's particularly ideal for those experiencing tendonitis in the heel or Achilles. Sports massage combines different forms of massage and muscle manipulation to stretch and stimulate the muscles.
CAN SPORTS MASSAGE HELP TRAPPED NERVE?
Can a Massage Help a Pinched Nerve? Massage therapy may be a great option in relieving a pinched nerve because sometimes muscle tension may be the cause of the pressure. A light to medium pressure massage such as a Swedish massage is ideal and will help to loosen up connective tissues.
WHY SPORTS MASSAGE?
A sports massage helps reduce tension, induce relaxation, and enable athletes to get better quality sleep. Getting enough and proper sleep is incredibly important for athletes because it promotes faster recovery time for injuries incurred. This also helps boost better performance. The best Chelan Massage Therapy!
CAN SPORTS MASSAGE CAUSE INJURY?
Occasionally it causes new physical injuries, usually just minor bruises and nerve lesions, but sometimes worse: there's a small but serious risk of spinal injury or stroke with any neck manipulation, and blood clots can be dangerously dislodged causing pulmonary embolism (a “stroke” in the lung).
CAN SPORTS MASSAGE HELP WITH ROTATOR CUFF INJURY?
Massage therapy is a great option for rotator cuff injuries because it helps to decrease inflammation and pain in the area, release scar tissue, loosen tight and tense muscles and increase range of motion in the shoulder girdle.
SPORTS MASSAGE VS SWEDISH MASSAGE?
Top benefits of a Swedish massage include enhanced circulation, improved skin tone, and reduced muscle tension. A sports massage, on the other hand, involves a customized massage therapy regimen that targets areas of the body likely to sustain injury or pain after playing sports.
DOES SPORTS MASSAGE IMPROVE PERFORMANCE?
Integrating professional sports massage therapy into your regime helps improve performance, conditioning, and reduces the risk of injury. It can also promote healing, relieve chronic pain, reduce muscle inflammation, and improve range of motion.
CAN SPORTS MASSAGE MAKE YOU TIRED?
Muscle Aches or Fatigue Naturally, your muscles are going to feel some soreness after a massage, since this penetrates the uppermost layers of muscle. Muscles will then feel relaxed, potentially causing fatigue or muscle aches. Again, any pain or discomfort felt after your appointment should only last a few days.
WHEN SHOULD I GET A SPORTS MASSAGE?
I always recommend that runners get a massage either the evening after a hard workout, or the next morning. If the therapist is using firm pressure or using methods like A.R.T., the muscles can often be sore or lethargic for a few days after a massage.
SPORTS MASSAGE IS CONSIDERED TO BE A COMBINATION OF?
The authors defined sports massage as “a more vigorous type of massage used to prepare athletes for peak performance and uses a combination of techniques including joint mobilization, stretching and/or postisometric relaxation, cross-fiber friction, and pressure point massage.
SPORTS MASSAGE VS STRUCTURAL MASSAGE?
Structural massage is often administered as a full body massage, rather than focusing on a specific area of the body. Sports massage, on the other hand, is a targeted massage approach that focuses on specific areas of the body that are in need of healing or relief.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE?
Reducing stress and increasing relaxation, Reducing pain and muscle soreness and tension, Improving circulation energy and alertness, Lowering heart rate and blood pressure, Improving immune function.
