Due to the Brunswick Community College COVID-19 Transmission Protocols, face masks are required to enter the Fitness & Aquatics Center. Once your are in the Mindful Body Wellness office the act of wearing face coverings is determined by you and your therapist.
When your therapist is ready the office door will be propped open and you may enter for your appointment. Please be aware that we schedule every session at least 30 minutes apart to allow time for linen changes, surface disinfecting and therapist break time.
For Therapeutic and Cupping sessions clients are allowed time to undress to their comfort level and be comfortably draped on the massage table. Thai massage clients are asked to wear comfortable stretchy clothing to their appointment. Thai massage pants may be provided with time to change if needed.
You will be emailed an intake form at the time your appointment is scheduled. Please fill out and submit prior to your appointment. If this is not possible your intake form may be filled out in the office prior to your first session.
In general, there are a few conditions that would prevent you from getting a massage. Of course, do not schedule an appointment if you are feeling unwell, have a fever, cold, or a skin condition that is contagious. The first trimester of pregnancy is generally considered off-limits for massage, as are active chemotherapy or other intensive medical treatments. If you have a serious medical condition and you are unsure if a massage would be safe for you, massage therapists will recommend that you speak with your primary care provider to get approval first.
This ancient healing practice is helpful in promoting the movement and elimination of the stagnant cellular waste trapped in our tissues. This unique release is helpful for treating old trauma-tension formed by injuries and surgeries and can also stimulate a significant detoxification process.
The detox process manifests in “cup marks” which appear as circular pink-purple marks on the skin and sometimes (but not often) body aches, a histamine response, and increased waste elimination. The elimination of previously stagnant cellular waste leads to enhanced wellness and efficiency of organ function, lymphatic drainage, and the daily cellular repair mechanisms in the body.
Cupping is a powerful approach to releasing tension in the muscles and fascia. Used appropriately, this treatment promotes healing and optimal function in the body. However there are some cases in which cupping is not appropriate and your bodywork practitioner can help you find a more suitable treatment plan.
Cupping is not advised for individuals with open wounds, bone fractures, or any acute musculoskeletal injuries, or hemorrhages of any kind or while using blood thinners.
Cupping is also not advised for individuals with a known active infection, internal organ disorder, or thin, cracked, inflamed skin.
