Massage for Back Pain Relief in Kettering

by | May 30, 2013 | Chiropractic

When back pain strikes, it can be all too easy to reach for ibuprofen or a medicated cream. However, sufferers of chronic back problems could benefit from something more natural and that provides more lasting relief. If you’re in the Ohio area, one great option could be to book a Massage in Kettering. The art of massage has been around for quite a long time (about 4,000 years, in fact)and is widely accepted across countries and cultures as a great way to relax the body and mind. If you’ve never treated yourself to one of these excellent therapy sessions, here are some things to expect.

First, you can’t be too modest. While you don’t have to strip down to the buff (although many people do), you will still get the best results if you go down to at least just your underwear bottoms. You will be partially covered by a blanket throughout the session, so don’t worry too much about being exposed. It is good for the massage therapist to have access to your whole body so that he or she can make long, productive strokes with massage oils and not have to worry about things like bra straps getting in the way. The massage therapist will most likely leave a blanket for you, instruct you to strip down and cover, and leave the room for you to prepare. He will give you enough time to get undressed, climb onto the table, and cover yourself before knocking and entering.

The session can last anywhere from half an hour to an hour or more, depending on the package you buy. It may involve focused work on a certain problem spot, such as a knot on your back, or an all-over body massage that does wonders to work out the kinks in calves, arms, shoulders, necks, and feet. If you’re expecting, there are also great prenatal massages that are perfectly safe!

At the end of your massage in Kettering, don’t forget to leave a tip. A standard amount for a good massage is 15-20 percent. The next time you come down with back pain, consider this ancient art as a natural and relaxing form of relief!
