Treatment

Before any treatment is performed, your massage therapy needs will be determined by a detailed personal assessment. Depending on your specific needs, Intrinsic Massage Therapy will recommend a therapeutic treatment or a relaxation treatment.

Therapeutic Treatment

Therapeutic treatment locates and corrects asymmetry in your body. This asymmetry or 'inequality' is what causes you pain. Muscle pain may be the result of a car accident, a sports injury, or any number of every day activities.

To restore the natural symmetry of your body, both extrinsic massage techniques (manipulation of soft tissue) and intrinsic techniques (using a patient's muscular force to stretch or realign skeletal structures) are used to restore your body's natural balance.

Relaxation Treatment

Swedish massage is used to soothe muscular tension and general stress. This type of massage naturally decreases muscular tone and enables you to feel total relaxation throughout your body at the end of the treatment. It is a great 'stress reliever'.

Your Appointment

  • For your first treatment, please arrive 10 minutes early. This will give you enough time to fill out the patient information form without taking any time away from your actual massage treatment.
  • To help you relax during your treatment, be sure to wear comfortable undergarments or shorts.
  • For your personal privacy and comfort, you will be covered with linen at all times, with the exception of the area that is being treated.
  • Intrinsic Massage Therapy offers both male and female licensed Massage Therapists.

Missed or Late Appointments

If an appointment is missed without 24 hours notice, you may be billed. If you are late for an appointment and scheduling does not permit going over your allotted time, full billing will be charged.
