People often ask the same questions of massage therapist. I am of the opinion, f one person has a question there are others who wonder the same thing. So here you go:
Do people ever fall asleep on the massage table?
The quick answer is yes. So much so that I take snoring as a compliment. It proves that my deep tissue does not cause you pain, it eliminates it!
Do I have to disrobe to get a massage?
Do people really get their glutes (butt muscles) massaged?
Yes, the gluteal muscles are two sets of three large muscles which aid in walking, running, climbing, sitting, standing, standing from sitting, pivoting, leaning, and a number of other movements. Doesn’t something that works this hard need to be relaxed? If you have not tried it, I recommend it highly and so do my clients who do receive glut massages.
Don’t your hands hurt after a day of massage?
They can, we are taught in school to use body weight vs. hand strength. This saves our hands from causing us problems.
How long does one go to school to become a massage therapist?
My curriculum was 12 months. Each state has different requirements. To receive an Associate degree in massage takes two years.
Where did you go to school for massage?
I attended the renowned National University of Health Sciences (formerly, National Chiropractic College) in Lombard, IL.
