Benefits of In-Home massage therapy
There is a general understanding that massage therapy can help relieve stress, but have you thought about the benefits of In-Home massage for stress relief?
Here are some reasons why a session at your home can deliver even more of the great benefits of massage therapy:
1. No driving after your massage
Austin traffic is the best, said no one ever. Instead, I arrive at your home with all the equipment needed for a restful, rejuvenating, and therapeutic massage session. All you need to do is clear a small space for my table and we're ready. No one likes to drive around being "Massage Drunk."
2. No new stimulus
Walking into a spa, for example, may be stressful to some. Being greeted with a form to fill out in a room that feels like a doctor's office isn't the most relaxing feeling; and being asked if you want to buy products or buy memberships can be stressful, too. The decor, smells, sounds and energy of other places can add a stressful stimulus to your already over-stimulated brain and body...it's time to relax.
3. Your pets can be with you
This has been a personal treat for me as a mobile massage therapist given that I love animals. You can feel even more relaxed and calm when we have your furry friends right next to you. I have no problem with your dog or cat being near you or on the table during your session if it helps you calm your nervous system and bring more joy to your massage. West Austin Massage is Pet Friendly!
4. You can make it your own personal spa
You can create your own massage-time rituals. Enjoy an epsom salt bath before or after your appointment, burn incense or run your essential oils humidifier. Whatever you'd like to add to your own session to make it exactly how you want it is encouraged. I do bring music, but if you have your own preference, that works too.
5. You receive the hands-on time that you paid for
Visiting spas or other venues for massage can sometimes take about 5 to 10 minutes from your hands-on time to allow enough time for their next client. They have to get you out of there so they can get the next one in. With you being the only person receiving a massage at your home, all of the attention is on you and your needs for the full time you pay for. With West Austin Massage, the client-intake form and the setting up/breaking down of my equipment is your complimentary time, with no added expense to you.
6. You are treated with unique care and attention
With massage at your own home, you are inviting me into your life where I can learn more about you and who you are as a human. I am not there to judge or assume anything by your decor, mess, or whatever. Pictures of you skiing or other suggestions to your life's adventures help me better understand your needs. I enjoy learning about my clients because I feel even more connected and grounded to them, which helps me provide unique and individualized care.

Massage in general is great for stress relief, but when you can add even more benefits to it by enjoying it from your own home, well that just feels like a win!
