Deep Tissue Doesn't Mean Deep Presure

Amanda Bell, LMP MA60048615 Sep 17, 2016 Wellness

There is a common misconception out there that "deep tissue" is the same as "deep pressure." And while you can have a heavy pressured, deep tissue massage, the two are not synonymous. Let me explain. In the world of massage, we've all shared the terms "swedish," "deep tissue," and "treatment." Those terms are...

I Work With Bodies

Amanda Bell, LMP MA60048615 Jun 29, 2016 Wellness

For about 8 years, now, I've been licensed and working as a massage therapist. I see all kinds of bodies and talk with all sorts of people. I've worked with journalists and musicians. Artists. Engineers. Laborers. Stay at home mothers and single parents. Office workers and athletes.  I've seen bodies that have endured years of neglect by their owners. And...

Scoliosis

Karyl Taylor, LMP MA60475800 Dec 4, 2015 Wellness

What is scoliosis? We’ve all heard about it since elementary school and most of us have been tested for it. How many of us actually know about scoliosis? Contrary to what it is believed to be, scoliosis is not a disease but a term used to describe any abnormal lateral (or sideways) curve of the spine. The curve presents in either the thoracic (mid‐back) or lumbar...

Pregnancy Massage Myths Debunked!

Karyl Taylor, LMP MA60475800 Nov 8, 2015 Wellness

      “You can’t massage a pregnant woman’s ankles or feet and you can’t get a massage until you are 20 weeks along”. These two statements often get thrown around a lot in the massage community and they are both completely false! Prenatal massage has acquired a bad rap and created some skepticism on whether or not this should...

Don't Underestimate The Swedish Massage

Karyl Taylor, LMP MA60475800 Oct 9, 2015 Wellness

It seems to me that as the massage world continues to get bigger, the less I hear of anyone wanting (or performing really) a Swedish massage. I continuously hear, “I’m not here for relaxing, I’m here to feel better!” Feel better, well that is a rather subjective notion. The idea of “feeling better” today has somehow become based on...

May is Fibromyalgia Month

Karyl Taylor, LMP MA60475800 May 16, 2015 Wellness

        The month of May is fibromyalgia awareness month. While fibromyalgia is becoming a more familiar term there is still very little known about it. So first, what is fibromyalgia? Well let’s break the name down. “Fibro” Latin for fibrous tissue, “myo” Greek for muscle, and “algia” Greek for pain. Literally...

I'm sick. Should I come in for a massage?

Karyl Taylor, LMP MA60475800 Jan 16, 2015 Wellness

So you have a massage scheduled by the end of the week and you are looking forward to it. You get the confirmation call and are all set up to have an amazing massage experience. The morning of the massage you wake up, your eyes are puffy, your nose is runny, and then the cough starts! You are sick! What do you do now? Well you have heard that massage can help push out toxins...

Massage Can Help Negative Effects of Depression

Karyl Taylor, LMP MA60475800 Nov 10, 2014 Wellness

I went to my friend to tell him I was going to write a blog on massage and I was wondering how to word it well! His advice was, “Tell them massage feels great! Boom, done!” While he is generally right, massage does feel great I wanted to get to the root of why it feels good. I’m going to take a moment here to talk a little bit about depression. I’m...

Communicating with your Massage Therapist

Karyl Taylor, LMP MA60475800 Sep 14, 2014 Wellness

Communication with your therapist is very important. While we do seem to have super powers in knowing where all the “knots” are, mind reading isn’t one of them. During the intake or the initial consult before the massage we do jot down the information we need to customize the massage to your needs. When we start the massage we tend to ask questions like, “How’s...
