Relax and Get Relief
For some, massage may seem like an indulgence, but in reality massage is undoubtedly one of the most versatile and beneficial treatments for your health and wellbeing.
Most patients know that body massage and the use of reflexology (applying targeted pressure to the feet or hands) can reduce stress and increase relaxation, but it also improves circulation, lowers heart rate and blood pressure, bolsters immune function, and more!
Why massage therapy?
What does massage therapy treat?
How it works
Your highly trained massage therapist uses a variation of gentle to intense pressure to loosen and relax muscles. Massage reduces tension in the neck, shoulders, upper back, lower back, and other areas of the body. This allows muscles to "release" nerves, reducing nerve pain.
Options of 60-minute, or 90-minute massages are available, you can also combine massage and acupuncture.
Why try massage therapy in Lenexa?
Massage lowers the heart rate and prompts the release of endorphins. The process puts your body in a natural state of ease and relaxation.
At Mind Body Shen, we add to this sense of safety and calm by performing your massage in a comfortable and serene environment. The optional addition of essential oils also aid in deep relaxation.
Massage is incredibly effective at short-term relief and long-term pain management. Your skilled massage therapist uses a variety of techniques to alleviate any chronic or acute pain, like relaxing sore muscles, stretching and gently manipulating joints, and more. Massage also releases endorphins in the body which work to alleviate pain.
What to expect?
Before your massage at Mind Body Shen, we will have an in-depth consultation. We'll talk about your level of experience with massage, make note of any pain or symptoms we should be aware of, and determine what you'd like to get out of the treatment. This allows us to customize a massage treatment plan that suits your particular needs.
Massage at Mind Body Shen
We will lead you to one of our comfortable, relaxing, and clean massage rooms. You can remove as much or as little clothing as you'd like and get comfortable under the sheet on the table. Your massage therapist will knock before entering the room and will ensure you're relaxed before beginning the massage.
A Relaxing Experience
At Mind Body Shen, we only use organic virgin coconut oil, raw unrefined shea butter, and olive oil with your choice of essential oil.
You can immediately return to normal activities following your massage, but we suggest you don't do anything strenuous for the rest of the day and make sure to drink lots of water.
Before receiving your massage, we recommend you:
There is not much you need to prepare prior to your massage! Arrive for your appointment with 5-10 minutes prior to your appointment time and enjoy.
How much pressure will my my massage therapist use?
Your massage therapist can use as much or as little pressure as you'd like! Some patients prefer a deep tissue, high-pressure massage, while others enjoy a light touch. We will discuss your preferences prior to the massage.
How often can I get a massage?
As often as you like! In fact, when it comes to massage, more is better. There are no harmful consequences of massage.
Will I have to get undressed for my massage?
Your massage therapist will leave the room at the beginning of the massage and you can undress to your comfort level! This means you can undress completely and lay under the sheet; stay fully dressed; or anywhere in between.
