What is Conscious, Therapeutic Massage?

The goal of a therapeutic massage is to help clients get out of pain or discomfort permanently whereas the goal of a relaxing massage (Swedish massage) is to decrease stress and help clients relax.  

At Self-transformations massage, we believe the goal of a massage should be both.  We achieve lasting results for our clients.  This is what makes us different and wehave decades of experience as well as many different therapeutic techniques to achieve this outcome.  No two clients are the same, thus, no two sessions will ever be either.  We take the time to get to know our clients and their needs in order to customize the best conscious, therapeutic experience possible.  This is our guarantee!

Why are your costs higher than many places?

If you look at spas and resorts, our prices are similar or lower.  If you look at places like Massage Envy or the like, our prices are higher.  Here are the reasons:

Spas and resorts book a “spa-hour” this means a 50 or 80 minute massage instead of a 60 or 90 minute massage and you are always expected to tip.  You pay more for less.  Furthermore, you may not get the therapeutic massage that you need in one of these places, nor will they have the time to really understand your medical needs or personal preferences.

  • With us, we take the time to give our clients their full hands-on treatment plus plenty of time for their therapist to understand their unique needs in order to customize their experience.  Clients will never feel rushed out the door and although we love tips, we never expect them nor demand them.  It is more important that clients come in and get the work they need than worry about that extra 10-20% expense of a tip.  That said, if you can, please do.

Although big cooperate places tend to cost 30% less with a monthly membership they often offer subpar massages.  This is because they pay their employees terrible wages; wages most people cannot live on.  Because of this, they often draw to themselves people directly out of school with very litter therapeutic knowledge or experience.

  • On the contrary, our therapists have near or over 10 years experience each with hundreds of hours of specific continuing education in therapeutic techniques.  Colorado does not require continuing education after graduation, therefore our therapists go above and beyond in order to prefect their craft.  We pay our contractors exceptionally well in order to attract the very best for our clients.

This said, we guarantee our work and insure that any therapist you schedule with is the best of the best. We look forward to showing you just how different & exceptional conscious, therapeutic massage can truly be!

What are the benefits of massage?
Massage is no longer for the elite members of society. It is now readily available and a powerful tool for almost everyone in order to take charge of their health and well-being. In fact, studies have shown that massage is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension.  It also produces feeling of caring, comfort and connection.

Specifically, massage may helps people who suffer from:

  • Anxiety
  • Digestive disorders
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia related to stress
  • Myofascial pain syndrome
  • Soft tissue strains or injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Temporomandibular joint pain
  • Whiplash
  • Low back pain
Is Therapeutic Massage painful?
Therapeutic massage should never be painful.  If it is, the massage therapist is working too deeply.  If 10 is pain, than therapeutic pressure should be at about a 6 or 7.  The pressure is often described as a “hurt so good” feeling.  Clients may feel some degree of discomfort but at the same time feel it is helpful and relieving.  The depth and techniques used are always adjusted to meet the individual’s preferences and needs.  No two session will ever be the same.
How can I tell the difference between a so-so massage and a great massage?

Great Question! Even a so-so massage can still feel good.  This is because when we humans are touched, our bodies release endorphins and when these “happy hormones” are released, they stay in our system for about 24 hours.  

A so-so massage will make someone feel great for about 24 hours and then they will feel “back to normal,” which usually means back to the same old aches and pains.

The results of a great massage will last longer than 24 hours initially  and slowly but surely, depending on the causes of the aches and pains and how long they have been occuring, skilled, therapeutic massage can actually help restore a body to balance.  This is what we do.
