The Science of Massage

Many of us are used to thinking of massage as a pure indulgence—something you do on vacation as a treat. Massage certainly can be that. But let’s not forget that our mental well-being is just as important as our physical health! Massage’s benefits go above and beyond the magic of relaxation, offering tangible health benefits for all aspects of our wellness.

Massage therapy is scientifically proven to promote healing, prevent pain, increase blood flow to stiff and restricted muscles, and improve circulation in the lymph system, a major component of your immune system. Regular massage can help your body recharge and recuperate from the tensions and strains we go through every day.

Massage FAQs

How often should you get a massage?
Your ideal massage schedule will depend on your personal preferences and any ongoing issues you’d like to treat. Some people come in weekly, others monthly, and anything in between. We generally recommend coming in about every 3-4 weeks to maximize massage’s preventative benefits. Of course, your massage therapist can recommend the perfect cadence for you, and we’re happy to accommodate any scheduling preferences.
Can you get a massage while pregnant?

Yes! At Hush, our massage therapists are trained to use techniques that are safe and effective during pregnancy, able to ease common aches and pains like sciatica, reduce swelling, increase energy, and even regulate stress hormones. According to the American Pregnancy Association, massage can be safe and beneficial throughout pregnancy, and can improve overall prenatal health for many. 

Some women do not prefer to get a massage in the first trimester because it can aggravate nausea and morning sickness. We generally recommend asking your doctor about massage before you book an appointment, especially if you are in the first trimester or have a high-risk pregnancy.

 Is massage good for you?

Absolutely. The highest authorities in medicine—Mayo Clinic, the Cleveland Clinic, and more—all recognize the health and wellness benefits of regular massage! Whether you’re recovering from a sports injury, having trouble focusing, struggling with chronic pain, or simply seeking a way to manage stress, massage is good for just about everyone!

The only times we may not recommend massage are if you have certain medical conditions, such as:

  • Active infections / contagious diseases
  • Blood clots or bleeding disorders
  • Certain kidney or liver conditions
  • Varicose veins or other circulatory problems like deep vein thrombosis
  • Broken bones, burns, or other healing wounds

Please tell your therapist about any medical conditions you have so that we can plan appropriately and make sure that massage therapy is right for you!
