FAQ

There is no issue with massage at any time post delivery, although care would be needed to be exercised over the uterus. Massage postpartum not only feels good but can help you recover from any stresses related to the birth. The Aqua-massage units have various levels of massage, so it can be set at a very low pulsation and water pressure. Having said all of that, we would request that if you have any concerns whatsoever, for your own peace of mind, you may wish to discuss with your GP and/or Midwife prior to having an aqua-massage session.

Both forms of massage provide many of the same benefits such as relaxation, easing muscle and joint pain and increasing circulation.  Both forms of massage can provide anywhere from light pressure for a relaxing massage to very hard pressure for more of a deep tissue massage. One of the main differences in the two types of massage is that aqua massage provides a full body massage throughout the duration of the massage rather than focusing on one part of the body for a few minutes, then moving on to another part, and so on.  This may or may not be what you are looking for.  One of the benefits of the full body massage is that you are able to relax quickly and the pressure on any specific body part is not as prolonged (and therefore pain from working on a specific area is reduced). However, some people may prefer more focused work on a specific area or an area which an aqua massage does not really cover – such as the head or the front of your body (aqua massage focuses on the back and sides of your body).  Aqua massage also does not cover more specific massage techniques such as pregnancy massages or reflexology.

No.  There is a waterproof barrier between you and the water jets.  It is a thin layer, so you will get all the benefits of the water pressure, but it does keep you from getting wet.

Not very much!  A very good length of time for your aqua massage is 10 minutes.  A 10 minute aqua massage is roughly equivalent to a 30 minute massage with a massage therapist.  At this time, no appointments are needed, so you can just walk right in whenever you feel the need for a massage; no waiting weeks or days for relief.

Ideally, once every week or two would be great!  This will keep your muscles, and your mind, relaxed.  Your muscles will not have a chance to become too tight and sore between massages.  You can even come in more often if you are working on a specific injury or problem area.  But, if you get too busy and forget to come in for a while, remember you can stop in again any time, we’ll be here for you!

You may still be able to enjoy an aqua massage if you are claustrophobic.  Please let us know if you are claustrophobic and we will work with you!   Your head is out of the machine when you have your massage and this may help your claustrophobic feelings.  You can do a couple trial runs where the canopy of the machine is closed, but the water is not running, to let you get used to the feeling.  The first couple times you use the machine, we can stay in the room with you – the idea that someone is there to help you may help.  There is also an emergency stop button right at your fingertips and under your control, so you can stop the massage and get out of the machine if you feel uncomfortable.If these methods don’t work, don’t push yourself.  We’d rather lose your business than have you feel uncomfortable during your massage.  You can still buy some products from our retail side of the store to help you relax at home!

Some people worry that massage could cause cancer cells to spread to other parts of their body, but research has not found any evidence of this.

Massage is one of the oldest therapies there is. It’s now often offered as part of cancer care in hospital wards, hospices, community health services and in some GP surgeries.
