California Medical Massage is owned by Melly Spohr, Licensed Massage Therapist. At your first visit, a thorough medical history will be taken, and we will discuss aspects of your life, like your job, hobbies, or sports you are involved in, whether you are on your feet, or sitting on your computer all day, or have a job that requires a lot of repetitive movement. We take all of these things into account as well as your posture, symmetry, and joint range of motion. Together, we can customize the massage to your needs.
Your massage may be complete relaxation, a classic, traditional Swedish type massage. Or your massage may be more clinical in nature, with some massage, some myofascial release, some Muscle Energy Technique or PNF stretching (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation), which is assisted stretch where the client contracts the muscle against resistance, relaxes the muscle and is assisted into a deeper stretch). This lengthens the muscles and can help to increase range of motion, and flexibility. Your session could also include tapotement (percussion) from a massage gun, targeting specific muscle groups.
Together, we may decide to do a combination of all. Sometimes clients may just want a full back massage, or only work on their scalp, neck and shoulders, and back to help with headaches/migraines.
When booking your massage, all of these modalities fall under TRADITIONAL MASSAGE, and are the same rate. The only difference in price, is when you book a CUPPING MASSAGE. See cupping information under SERVICES.
When purchasing an E-GIFT CERTIFICATE, you will recieve an email with a redemption code. THIS MUST BE PRESENTED AT THE SESSION.
Always feel free to call Melly at 513-377-5017 to discuss any questions you might have, to help decide which type of massage may benefit you, or if you would like to know more about any of the above therapies.
