Massage Services at BlueFern

bluefern therapeutic massage davis square somerville ma
We offer therapeutic massage using a blend of many techniques. We also provide massage for prenatal or postpartum clients as well as clients that have cancer or a cancer history. Please read below to see which type of massage is most appropriate for you. If you have any questions about our approach, please feel free to contact us anytime!

Therapeutic Massage

At BlueFern, we take an integrated approach to massage therapy. We often draw on several techniques in a single session such as: myofascial release, neuromuscular therapy, sports or deep tissue work, relaxation, and soft tissue injury techniques. Our goal is to create a balanced treatment that is a custom fit to the individual's needs and strive for a deeply therapeutic massage every time.

Prenatal/Postpartum Massage

Massage can be a wonderful complement to self-care during and after pregnancy. Prenatal massage shares many of the goals of regular massage - to relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, increase mobility, and just make you feel relaxed and cared for. But it is also tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women. Prenatal massage can help to reduce some of the physical and emotional stress that can accompany pregnancy.

Benefits can include: relief from muscle cramps, spasms, and myofascial pain, especially in the lower back, neck, hips, and legs as well as reducing some swelling and enhancing the pliability of the skin and underlying tissue. Continuing regular massage following pregnancy can support new mothers with the physical and emotional strains of mothering.

Oncology Massage

This type of massage is appropriate for anyone with cancer or a history of cancer, even if decades ago. We are trained to ask the right questions and take appropriate measures to ensure your safety, no matter where you are in the cancer journey.

Oncology massage is not a different set of massage techniques. Depending on the individual, the massage may include some variations or adjustments, or it may not look much different than a massage someone may have received before a cancer diagnosis. There can be lingering effects of cancer or cancer treatment and we take care in all scenarios to be able to provide a safe and therapeutic massage.

Massage during treatment for cancer can be extremely beneficial in helping to deal with the side effects of cancer and/or cancer treatments. If you are in treatment for cancer or just out of treatment and are interested in receiving massage or have questions, please call or email us to inquire.
