Massage FAQ:

  1. How long is the massage session?
  2. Are the therapists at PEAK licensed?
  3. What do I wear to a massage?
  4. How long will it take for me to notice a difference?
  5. How often should I get a massage?

  1. How long is the massage session?
    We offer 30, 60, and 90-minute sessions.
  2. Are the therapists at PEAK licensed?
    Yes! Our therapists have studied extensively and are licensed massage therapists.
  3. What do I wear to a massage?
    We encourage you to wear comfortable clothing to your massage so you can feel comfortable and relaxed afterward in non-restrictive clothing. For the massage itself, you can disrobe to the extent you feel comfortable; you will be covered during the massage with the therapist discreetly exposing only those areas they are working on. We encourage you to speak with your therapist to share your level of comfort with the covering.
  4. How long will it take for me to notice a difference?
    Everyone is different in their reasons for seeking a massage as well as how the soft tissue will respond. Many individuals notice a greater sense of relaxation immediately following the massage. Physical benefits are often noticed immediately and will continue to improve over several days.
  5. How often should I get a massage?
    Speak with your therapist regarding your specific concerns and she/he can make recommendations to address your unique needs.

 

Assisted Stretch FAQ:

  1. What is the difference between dynamic vs. static stretching?
  2. What is the difference between active vs. passive stretching?
  3. Can I do assisted stretches at home for greater benefit?

  1. What is the difference between dynamic vs. static stretching?
    Dynamic stretching uses motion to bring a muscle to the extreme ends of its range in a controlled manner. Static stretching gradually lengthens muscles by holding them in the stretched (or elongated) position for 15-60 seconds.
  2. What is the difference between active vs. passive stretching?
    In an active stretch, there is no external force involved; you use one muscle group to stretch another. With a passive stretch, there is some type of external force that is used, such as having a therapist stretch you or the use of an accessory such as a yoga strap.
  3. Can I do assisted stretches at home for greater benefit?
    Certainly! Speak with your therapist for ideas on how you can add assisted stretching to a regular home routine in order to achieve the most benefit.
