Body stress and muscle pains are common symptoms of many health challenges. A therapeutic massage is intended to help relieve pain, improve mobility, and improve overall wellness. From simple muscle aches, to more serious health conditions, regular massage can be a powerful tool to improve your health. Massages can loosen your muscles and improve blood flow, which in turn, fosters healing and better health. Therapeutic massages can also improve the function of your respiratory system, metabolic system, and nervous system. Subsequently, massage lowers your heart rate and blood pressure. It can also lower your stress to reduce negative health effects.
Therapeutic massage can also reduce stress and anxiety, which are known causes of negative health effects. Like anything else, prevention is often the best medicine. Regular therapeutic massage sessions make injuries far less likely.
Life is too short to spend in pain. With regular massage sessions, you will be able to sleep better, breathe better, move better, and live better.
Every massage at MERCI Massage is personalized to fit your needs. At your first session with MERCI Massage, you will discuss your wellness goals with one of our expert therapists. Your therapist will then incorporate multiple techniques into your session to meet your goals. Afterwards, every session will begin with a short chat with your massage therapist to see which techniques are preferred. Therefore, you will always have the massage that fits your wellness goals.
Back in 2008 I was sent to 8 weeks of Physical Therapy for Fibromyalgia and migraines. In 2010, when I found Madeleine, she did more for me in the first hour than all 8 weeks of physical therapy did to help me. My out-of-pocket co-pays for that were more $ than I have spent with Madeleine in the first 6 months of time with her. I now see Madeleine or one of her very capable Therapists every other week.
I am so grateful for Madeleine and the folks at MERCI Massage. I’ve been a client for the past several years and I highly recommend them. I have unique needs because of ongoing health issues and they have gone the extra mile to make sure I was matched with the therapist within the group who was best suited to my needs. Massage supported me during a several-month period of weaning off a strong pain medication, by helping my body relax and by easing some of the muscle-related withdrawal symptoms. I also had two major surgeries on my dominant arm/shoulder, and both times, therapeutic massage helped in the recovery phase by loosening and lengthening soft tissues and increasing flexibility while decreasing pain. Massage also acted as a support for what I was doing in physical therapy and with home exercises, with the approval of my physical therapist.
I suffered from migraines since 7th grade. I am 47. I’ve been with MERCI Massage for 10 years now. I used to get 8-12 migraines every month. I would take Darvocets. They wouldn’t take the migraine away fully, but would dwindle them down to a headache. When I am consistent with my bi-weekly massages, I have no migraines. Living migraine free and drug free!
I have been going to MERCI Massage since 2014. MERCI has tailored a non-medicinal program for my chronic pain. I had been suffering from headaches since the age of five, and migraines thereafter, over 60 years of chronic pain. During my weekly visits, my therapist and I discuss my progress and adjust my program according to the results from the previous visit.
MERCI Massage has a kind, friendly, personable staff that will listen to your needs/wants and will follow through. These women are very trustworthy and have incredible healing hands. MERCI Massage makes you feel at home while staying professional. I love them!
I’ve been seeing Madeleine for years. She’s the best massage therapist I’ve ever been to. She releases the knots in my muscles and even finds knotted muscles when I didn’t know I had any! I walk away feeling so much better. The other MERCI Massage therapists I’ve tried are also excellent. After a massage by Kyle, I was totally relaxed with muscles like melted butter! Janine’s technique is similar to Madeleine’s, so I was extremely happy with my massage. I would gladly see any of them again and again because I know I would be cared for promptly, professionally, courteously… and I will feel so much better when they are through. I like them so much I drive 30 minutes one way to get to the office…and pass other massage therapists along the drive! Merci to everyone at MERCI Massage!
