The Benefits Of Ice Combined With Heat


As a massage therapist, how many times have clients come to you with a sore or pulled muscle, exclaiming they put heat on the area, but felt no relief, or the heat made it worse? What about client who let you know they put heat on the area....for an hour?


I can't tell you how many times clients have told me they thought heat was the cure-all for sore or tight muscles. As therapists, I believe it is our job to not only provide relief and comfort to our clients but to also educate them.

A great method for many acute muscle pain situations is utilizing a combination of cold and hot therapy. I simply advise my clients to use ice for 10 minutes followed by 10 minutes of heat and end with an additional 10 minutes of ice. The initial icing begins to calm spasms down, the heat increases fresh blood supply and nutrients to the area, and the final icing calms the area back down again. By repeating this a few times a day from the onset of pain for a few days, I have found a reduction in discomfort and healing time. As a result, my clients are happy, pain free and have learned how to better take care of themselves when they aren't able to see me. 

By educating our clients on even the smallest things, especially when it's a home relief situation they see how much you are invested in them as a person, not just as a client.

Heal, Relax and Comfort Your Clients with Aromatherapy


I swear that the best advice and information we receive comes directly from our fabulous clientele. Case-in-Point: My conversation this afternoon with Kristen of Susi Laura Massage Therapy.  

Fall Season brings about colds and congestion for all of us.  The congestion, especially, can turn the relaxing and revitalizing experience of a massage into one of complete discomfort.  The massage therapists at Susi Laura Massage Therapy, however, go above and beyond for their clients to make them as comfortable as possible.

While the massage is being performed, the therapists have a small diffuser containing Eucalyptus Oil placed under the face rest.  As their muscles are being soothed, the clients are also experiencing the anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, decongesting and healing effects of the Eucalyptus.

This simple, cost-effective, yet brilliant gratis service can be customized to your style and your clients needs.  If he or she is cold-free, but incredibly stressed, Lavender or Ylang Ylang essential oil would be perfect to offer.  Lemon, Rosemary and Geranium essential oils will add a touch of comfort to the experience for your client.

What types of unique touches do you add to your massage services?  Let us know in the Comments!
