- What is Massage Therapy? Massage Therapy
is a system of stroking, pressing and kneading different areas of the body to relieve pain, relax, stimulate, and tone
the body. Although massage therapy largely affects those muscles just under the skin, it's benefits may also
reach the deeper layers of muscles and possibly even the organs themselves.

you. You will be asked to undress to your comfort level. The goal of Sunset Spa is to create a relaxed atmoshpere for
you to help maximize the benefits of your visit. You will be properly covered at all times, any area of the body that
is not being worked on will not be exposed.
- What if I don't want certain areas to be worked on, what do I do or say? At the
beginning of the session talk with your massage therapist about your desires and concerns. By stating your concerns you both are
aware of the work and session that you are there to receive. We respect you and your privacy.
- What if the pressure is too much or not enough?
Tell your massage therapist immediately if you feel any type of discomfort or want extra attention in a special area.
If you do not let her/him know, she/he will feel that everything is alright and you will miss the opportunity to
maximize your experience. This is your session you are expecting great things and are paying to receive great services.

system (which runs parallel to the circulatory system), thereby eliminating waste throughout the body.
- How often should I get a massage? That

you are coming in to keep your muscles working properly and to keep the stiffness away, every two weeks is very
reasonable. At the end of your session you technician is available to help you create a schedule that is just right

- Why do I need to drink water after a session? Water is the best detoxicant and resuscitator
and is an integral and necessary part of our body makeup. Our body weight is about 60% water, our lungs water content
is about 95%, bones 25% and our organd need water to function properly. During massage therapy fresh oxygen
has been flushed to your muscles and waste flushed out which might leave you feeling dehydrated. Water is responsible
for moving nutrients around the body and into cells. It is the main ingredient in the fluids that make up the blood,
lymph, sweat, and other body fluids. Water is the tonic that helps to cleanse toxins from our body and helps to replenish
and rejeuvenate the body after a work out. So drink up!
- What happens if I don't drink the water? You are only hurting yourself by having
your organs work overtime because, your organs do not have the proper fluid they need to help sustain themselves.
- What is a colonic? A colonic , otherwise known
as a colon irrigation, is a safe, effective method for cleaning the colon of waste material by repeated, gentle flushing
with body temperature, purified water.
- What is the purpose of getting a colonic? Waste material that remains in the
colon for some time (i,e, impacted feces, dead cellular tissue, accumulated mucus, etc.), poses several problems.
These materials can be quite toxic, and may re-enter and circulate in the bloodstream, making the body feel ill,
tired, or weak.
