Burnout is real. And it sucks.

What does burnout feel like? Exhausted, frazzled, and running on empty. Too overwhelmed by mounting pressure to function. Paralyzed. Utterly depleted. Broken. Stress, over time, can become chronic and lead to burnout. Getting out of the depths of burnout can feel almost impossible – and insurmountable feat. Even for those in or nearing crisis mode, things can get better!

The benefits of lymphatic drainage

By Claire Schoen

Light and rhythmic, lymphatic massage (also known as lymph massage, manual lymphatic drainage, or “MLD”) helps people feel a deep sense of relaxation and calm. This specialty style of massage is, perhaps, one of the most relaxing forms of massage – using such gentle pressure that the body can fully let down its guard in the hands of the practitioner. Anyone who wants to achieve peaceful calm should try lymphatic massage, especially those who don’t prefer firm pressure massage.

Trauma Survivors Can Be Aided By Massage.

The team at Nimbus Massage recently hired Hannah Bohn, MSW, a local mental wellness professional, to teach the staff a clinically-oriented class on PTSD and Trauma. By expanding our knowledge base, we can better attune our sessions to our clients who have experienced either of these. The root of helping people with their massage goals comes from understanding what people experience. We believe that massage can help survivors of trauma and people who live with Post Traumatic Stress.

Couple’s Massage Basics

Each February our schedules fill with couples wanting a massage together. Whether celebrating Valentine’s Day, or another occasion during the year, read on to learn more about Couple’s Massage.

The basic premise of a Couple’s Massage is that two people receive massage at the same time, in the same room. Each person has their own massage therapist and their own, individualized massage.

Upon arrival, expect your therapist to do an intake process with you so you can tell them your goals for the massage. You will also discuss your overall health and your preferences for a massage session.  Your partner’s therapist will do the same with them. Then you will all go to the treatment room and receive a brief orientation to the room and how to get on the table. The massage therapists will leave to let you undress and start relaxing on the table.

When the massage therapists return, they will begin your and your partner’s massages as you discussed in the intake. Since you probably have slightly different needs than your partner, the massages will be slightly different, and tailored to each person individually. The therapist will ask about your comfort, but will otherwise maintain peaceful quiet. Unlike some spas and franchises, we do not do a standard choreographed massage “routine.”

Why Choose Couple’s Massage

You may choose Couple’s Massage for a variety of reasons. Perhaps to celebrate a special occasion. Or one person is a massage veteran who is bringing the other for the first time; it can feel more comfortable to come with someone you know. Sometimes, it just makes more sense time-wise if both of you can receive a massage at the same time. Or you may simply find it a lovely way to spend time together.

If you want to try a Couple’s Massage, give us a call and we will help you book it. We offer 30, 60, and 90 minute sessions. We call it Massage for Two because not everyone who wants to get a massage at the same time is a couple, and we can also see two people is separate rooms.

During the month of February only, we offer on-line booking for a Valentine’s Day Couple’s Massage Package. This special package includes a rose, chocolates, and rose aromatherapy to take home. Due to the high demand for this service, we do require a deposit to reserve this service.

We look forward to seeing you and your someone special soon.
