Most deep tissue massages normally focus on major muscle groups — such as the neck or lower back — along with joints and tendons that are susceptible to straining or injuries. Certain areas of the body that tend to tense up in times of stress, including the shoulders, neck and hips, can often benefit the most from this type of deep manipulation. Many people consider “sports massages” to be a form of deep tissue massage, which involves physical treatment primarily to neuromusculoskeletal systems to treat pain and disability, improve muscle recovery and joint mobilization, and prevent injuries.
During most full-body massages the expectation is you’ll be undressed. Your massage therapist will ask you to undress for your massage while they wait outside. It’s up to you whether or not to keep your underwear on. Your massage therapist will drape a sheet over your body, which they will pull back and adjust as they work their way around. You will be covered most of the time.
Stimulating reflex points on the feet and hands is an effective way to induce relaxation and promote revitalization. Sometimes, though, channels between the feet/hands and associated organs or systems are blocked. To make reflexology sessions more effective for my clients, especially those with severe conditions, I expanded my skills by learning ear reflexology. Just about everybody has ears and they are close to the brain, which makes them convenient for accessing effective reflex points. Much awakening happens using reflex points on the ears, hands, and feet to encourage your body to restore its natural harmony.

Trigger points or stress points may also cause muscle soreness and decreased flexibility. These points are specific spots in muscle and tendons which cause pain when pressed, and which may radiate pain to a larger area. They are not bruises, but are thought by some to be small areas of spasm. Trigger points may be caused by sudden trauma (like falling or being hit), or may develop over time from the stress and strain of heavy physical exertion or from repeated use of a particular muscle.
I am also honored to have studied under the world-renowned pioneering reflexotherapist, Lone Sorensen, who is changing the face of reflexology. The effectiveness of her Sorensensistem� Facial Reflex Therapy surpasses all previous evolutions of reflexology that I have been able to previously provide. This is an exciting evolution for me and my clients because of the vastly superior results and seemingly miraculous improvements that people can experience. Having nearly direct connections to your brain make this Facial Reflex Therapy system truly one of the most effective natural modalities for your health maintenance and restoration.
Completely new to massage? Book your first appointment either well before a race—at least a few weeks out—or wait until the day after. “Just like you wouldn’t test out new socks or shoes on day of race, you shouldn’t experiment with any pre-race bodywork,” says Denunzio. Those who are familiar with massage can benefit from a pre-race rubdown in the seven to two-day window prior to an event. Getting treatment less than 48-hours prior puts all runners—even those who are massage veterans—at risk of race day soreness.
Ugly pain in massage therapy is, by my definition, never okay. Ugly pain is often caused by things that are not going to offer even minimal, delayed benefits, and may even be dangerous. It’s important to be able to spot ugly pain for what it is and completely eliminate it from any therapy you’re receiving. What kinds of handling may cause “ugly” pain?

About 19 months ago I made one of the greatest decisions of my life, so far. I joined The Sport of Massage team. One day at a continuing education class in Raleigh, Suzie approached me because of my cycling tan lines, asking if I was looking for a job. I was! After a life on the road with the Holowesko Citadel professional cycling team, I was just getting settled into my life in Raleigh. I was not sure what I wanted to do with my life, or what direction I wanted to go with massage therapy, but as soon as I started talking to Suzie I knew I wanted to work for her. I jumped at the opportunity to go visit the office. When I walked in, I knew it was going to be a perfect fit for me. But first, I had to impress Suzie with my massage skills. Massaging Suzie was by far the most nervous I have ever been to give a massage. Luckily, she saw something in me.
In another study, 35 women with premenstrual syndrome (PMS) were randomly assigned to ear, hand, and foot reflexology or to placebo therapy done on sham reflex points. The women kept a daily record of 38 possible symptoms selected from previous PMS research questionnaires. The treatment group reported significantly fewer symptoms than the placebo group, and these improvement persisted for 2 months after treatment. Many women in this group fell asleep during the 30-minute sessions and reported feeling more energetic during the next day. The placebo group reported that they thought they were receiving genuine reflexology, The authors note, however, that it was very difficult to develop a credible placebo control group, which may have been the study's flaw. Normally, reflexology is soothing, but the placebo treatment was described as "either overly light or very rough."  Thus the differences could have been differences in the quality of the massage being administered. The study suggests that massage may relieve PMS symptoms, but it does not validate the alleged connection between reflex points and body organs
