I tweaked my shoulder a few weeks ago and it was slowly getting worse. I first made an appointment with CryoMe and they applied a localized treatment on my shoulder. That worked great. The previous night I was barely able to sleep because of a constant pain. After the Cryo treatment my shoulder felt much better within a few hours. While I was there I booked an appointment for a massage with Laguna Healing Massage for the following day.
They offer 30, 60, 90 and 120 minute massages. I chose the 60 minute. I have had several massages before and usually a 60-90 minute is a good time frame. 30 seems too short. The massage therapist is Jessica. She walks you into the room and asks several questions, any areas of pain or soreness, what type of massage do you want, deep tissue, relaxation, sports etc. They also offer aromatherapy during their massages and you can choose what type of smell you want and Jessica explains what each one does.
Jessica starts with the back and upper body, then arms, shoulders and legs. At some point I was so relaxed I actually fell asleep. Then she had me rollover and she did more with my legs, neck and head area. She also worked more on my shoulder. She could feel the knot in my shoulder and worked on that. She kept checking to make sure she wasn’t hurting me, and I told her when it was getting to a point where I wasn’t comfortable. By the time she was finished I felt very relaxed like I needed to take a nap. I have had many massages and this was one of the best.
After the massage I talked to Tika. She makes all the appointments runs the office side. She talked about how she got involved in it. She said her sister has a massage office in the Pacific Northwest and she wanted to open one here. She said that she is a sufferer of chronic pain and she has found pain relief through massage and wanted to share that with others. She talked a little about Laguna Healing Massage and how they are a paperless system. Everything is done electronically.
