Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect from my massage? Massage may be a new experience to you. When we try something new, we may naturally feel apprehensive or nervous. If this is your concern, we will do everything possible to ensure that your experience is positive and rewarding. You will be asked about your reasons for getting a massage, current physical condition, medical history, stress levels, areas of pain and other pertinent topics. Your massage therapist will leave the room while you undress, relax onto the table and cover yourself with a sheet and blanket.

Where will my session take place?

Your massage or bodywork session will take place in one of two war, comfortable, quiet massage rooms in an office dedicated to massage and bodywork sessions. Soft music will be playing to help you relax. You will lie on a table especially designed for your comfort. Inner Balance prides itself on having the most comfortable tables in Noblesville!

What do I wear during my massage?

Depending on the technique your therapist uses, you may or may not have to undress. For a full body massage, most people undress to their underwear. However, you may choose to undress completely. Your massage therapist will give you privacy to undress and you will be covered by a sheet and blanket at all times except for the area being worked on.

What do I do during my massage?

Make yourself comfortable! If your massage therapist wants you to adjust your position, she will either move you or will tell you what is needed. Otherwise, change your position anytime to make yourself more comfortable. Some clients love to chat, while others like to sort out relationship problems or vent abut the stresses of life. Still others like to lie in complete silence, even falling asleep. The bottom line is: It's up to you! It's your massage session and whatever way you wish to spend your time is the best way to relax. Your massage therapist will check in with you, especially at the beginning, to ask if anything is uncomfortable or distracting, whether from physical discomfort, table temperature or music volume, etc. Do not hesitate to ask questions about what your massage therapist is doing, or about the massage in general. The desire to sigh or take a deep breath is a sign that you are relaxing. In fact, deep natural breathes can actually help you relax.

How long is my massage?

The average full body massage or bodywork session lasts approximately one hour. A half hour massage only allows for a partial massage session such as neck and back or legs and feet. Many people prefer a 60 or 90 minute sessions for optimal relaxation.

What parts of my body will be massaged?

How will I feel after my massage or bodywork session?

After a massage, most people feel very relaxed. Many experience freedom from aches and pains that have built up from months of tension or repetitive activity in their daily life. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience an increase in energy, heightened awareness and increased productivity, that can last for several days. Since toxins are released from your soft tissues during your massage, I recommend you increase your intake of water and follow other post-massage instructions I may make.

Are there any medical conditions that would make massage or bodywork inadvisable?

Yes! That's why it is very important that before we begin the session that you are asked general healthcare questions. It is very important that you inform me of any health problems or medications you are taking. If you are under a doctor's care, it is strongly recommended that you talk to your physician about the advisability of having massage therapy.

How often should I get a massage?

Therese Pfrimmer, founder of Primmer Deep Muscle Therapy, believed that massage should be scheduled no more than four weeks apart for maximum benefits. Your therapist can help determine how close together your sessions should be to get the results desired. The results of massage are cumulative, which means the more frequently you get massage the longer its effects last with time. Clients with a lot of pain or stress will need to visit weekly or biweekly until their pain and stress levels diminish. After that a maintenance schedule can be set at intervals from once every two weeks to once a month. I will make a recommendation at the end of your session about your maintenance interval.

How can I make my massage last?

The best thing you can do for yourself after your session is to relax and drink plenty of water. When you are stressed, your muscles become tight and inflamed. Toxins in the bloodstream (from pollutants in the air, water and food) become trapped in your muscles and lymphatic system and Pfrimmer Deep Muscle Therapy helps loosen the tissues and release those toxins. Drinking lots of water helps your body dilute and eliminate those toxins. Your therapist may also recommend a good soak in a warm bath of either apple cider vinegar, wintergreen alcohol or epsom salts which will also help to release those toxins and relax your muscles.
