Massage Therapy in Seal Beach.

OPR has a new team member! Kimberly Smith, help us welcome her. Here is a message from KIM!
Recommended massage length 60-75 minutes – Allows time for client to relax and therapist to address multiple areas of concern. (90 minutes is available)
$20 for Every 15 Minutes;  30 Minute Minimum
Therapeutic/Sports Massage – A targeted massage to improve function in a specific area. Techniques including myofascial, positional, and active release are used with varying degrees of pressure;  Hot or cold stones may be used to facilitate muscle cooperation.  
 Lymph Massage – A light massage with soft pumping action in the direction of the lymph nodes.  This technique improves the immune system, metabolism, and waste elimination.  An essential part of any detox regimen.
Pregnancy Massage – A medium pressure massage done in a “sideline” position with pillows to make this a very relaxing treatment.  Massage is appropriate during all months of pregnancy as long as the correct positioning and proper techniques are used.  Heat and very deep pressure are avoided for the comfort of the Mother.

Massage Do’s and Dont’s

Do’s

1) Drink water but eat light– hydrated muscles and skin respond better to massage

2) Make appointment at least one day ahead of time to ensure you get the day and

time that best fits your schedule

3) Clean bodies are appreciated – skin will be more apt to absorb oil nutrients

4) Undress to your comfort level – you will be draped appropriately (underwear is

always ok to leave on)

5) Communicate with your therapist –medical conditions, allergies, concerns; Please

speak up immediately if you are in pain or uncomfortable

Dont’s

1) Last minute cancellations do not give enough time for another client to book that

hour – time has been reserved just for you so don’t miss out

2) Drinking alcohol is not recommended – massage may intensify the affects and make

driving dangerous

3) Showering after your massage is not necessary – essential oils help your body heal –

excess oil is removed with sheet or hot towels

4) Don’t wait too long – get a massage at least once a month for maintenance – but

more often is better so the root cause can be addressed rather than the symptom
