Facts and Questions

Bodies respond and relax naturally to heat. Using hot stone allows me to utilize localized warmth to help muscles relax and reduce pain. The hot stones are in motion they don’t create the side effect of increasing blood to the area, an added benefit that avoids increased inflammation.

Get a relaxing massage 2 or 3 days before a big run so your muscles are flexible going into the run. It is also a good idea to get a massage after a run to help move the toxins and reduce inflammation as the body heals itself.

As part of the process, I use oil to reduce friction as I work to loosen tense muscles and joints. Most of my clients remove most (if not all) of their clothing and then cover themselves under the sheet provided on the massage table. Throughout the massage, I work on different areas of the body at a time. Tailoring pressure to make sure you are comfortable, I’ll customize the massage to your special needs.

It is a percussion tool that is designed to break up scar tissue, calcium deposits, and lactic acid that forms in the fiber of the muscle. It helps slow down the degeneration process associated with arthritis.

Regular massage reduces stress, high blood pressure, and cortisol levels in your heart. Muscles have memory, so when getting a regular massage your body will remember it's time to relax. Over time you will start to relax just by laying on the table in anticipation of the massage.

That is an individual decision. However, it’s recommended to get a massage at least once a month in order to reduce stress in your body. For those will particularly stressful lives I recommend coming in more often. If you are recovering from surgery or an injury, the frequency of massage is determined on a case-by-case basis.

Typically one hour is enough time to work on your entire body. However, 90 minutes is preferred especially when you are experiencing a lot of stress or you want extra attention in certain areas. For example, those with demanding careers where they frequently sit in meetings or spend hours at a computer. The muscles in their neck, shoulders, and back get extremely tight, and a longer massage allows time to focus on those areas.

Drink lots of water. Toxins like lactic acid are released from your muscles during a massage. By drinking lots of water you help your body to wash out those toxins and heal. For clients looking to increase flexibility and range of motion, I may also suggest stretching exercises.

I saw Cara when I was about 7 months pregnant and on vacation. I was swollen huge and my feet were unrecognizable. Cara was wonderful!!! Very professional and knew just what I needed. She even showed my husband a thing or two to help for the last 2 months of pregnancy. Highly Highly recommend her.

I've been going to Spirit of Health for massages for the past two years. Cara is highly skilled at giving massages that are both pleasurable and therapeutic. I've been impressed by the way she tunes into what my issues are and focuses on working with them. In addition to seeing clients privately, she also works regularly at El Camino Hospital where she applies her skills to both patients and staff.

I have just moved back to the bay area and I have been trying a lot of different massage therapists in an attempt to find one that meets all my needs and expectations. Cara, at Spirit of Health, is actually the best I have ever encountered. She makes me extremely comfortable. She listens to my and needs and customizes the massage to address them. She also asks for my feedback as the massage progresses and adjusts her therapy accordingly. This is my new massage therapy home and I highly recommend it to everyone.
