When making an appointment, it’s good to know exactly how massage therapy works. You should understand how it can help your specific needs. When you book an appointment, we’ll discuss your needs to give you a session tailored to your specific health needs and mobility requirements!
How Does Mobile Massage Work?
You may know what a massage is: the manual manipulation of soft tissue in the body for the improvement of wellness. This includes targeting muscles, connective tissues, ligaments and tendons in a way that enhances physical and mental well being.
Massage causes physiological changes using the body’s relaxation response. This is the nervous system’s involuntary response to the touch of massage techniques. The safe touch is LMM’s invitation for you to relax, and together with the pain relief, massage therapy produces this response.
It also works through the mechanical response, the physical effects that happen in the body when pressure is applied to soft tissues. The physical manipulation in massage therapy can increase blood and lymph circulation and releases nerves and deeper connective tissues.
Together, the relaxation and mechanical responses from massage therapy bring about many incredible and practical benefits! This is true for all ages and demographics, but it can be especially true for seniors. We always make sure the client is comfortable in our massage chair or table or other modification. Your comfort and safety are always paramount!

Deep tissue massage is a form of massage that is primarily used to treat musculoskeletal conditions such as strains and tears due to overuse or workplace stress. It means implementing constant pressure to penetrate the inner parts of muscles and connective tissues using slow, deep movements. Check out our deep tissue services today!
Reflexology is the massage discipline of applying pressure to areas on the feet (or hands) in a therapeutic manner. Reflexology is calming in general, which can help reduce overall stress. The idea underlying reflexology is that foot regions relate to body organs and systems. Book our reflexology services today!
A very popular type of massage therapy is called a hot stone massage. It is conducted by placing gently heated stones all over your body to help you relax and ease tense muscles and damaged soft tissues. Smooth, flat and heated stones are placed over specific parts of your body during a hot stone massage and they may be positioned depending on the style of the masseuse, along your spine, across your shoulders or legs.

Relaxation massage is a smooth, gentle, flowing style that promotes general relaxation, relieves muscle tension and enhances circulation and movement range. That's the massage type you'll mostly find done at day spas. The most well-known method of relaxation massage is probably the Swedish massage. Choose our relaxation massage services today!
