It seems that massage businesses have popped up throughout our local backroads over the last few years. While many are chain locations that bring affordability and flexibility to appointments, the service, quality and healing that come from more practiced and trained bodyworkers often is missing. However, if you are seeking a full massage experience that brings healing, health, and experience together, a visit to Tranquility Massage and Wellness Center with Massage Therapist Bob Ovitt, Cmt, may be exactly what you are looking for.
A History In Health and Wellness
Bob Ovitt has roots in the medical industry. A son of a physician who practiced orthopaedic medicine and surgery, Bob spent his childhood being introduced to the human body and how it worked. Bob’s early adult years were spent in cardiovascular medicine. However, Bob knew he wanted to explore health and wellness from outside of traditional medicine. He explains there is nothing “wrong,” with traditional medicine, but he was seeking a different way to help people. And that is when he found massage therapy.
Ovitt has over 900 hours of training from the National Holistic Institute. He is trained in Swedish, Thai, Deep Tissue, Pregnancy Massage, Sports, Energy Work, and Myofascial Release. This means that Bob has the capability to help you find wellness and relief through a variety of techniques that answer to different types of wellness obstacles. Regardless of why you are seeking a massage, you can be sure that Bob has received extensive training and practice.
What To Expect at Tranquility and Massage Wellness Center
Heading into your first appointment with a new bodyworker can be disconcerting for many people. Massage therapy is an intimate experience that has physical and mental benefits – and knowing what to expect allows you to head into your appointment a bit more confidently.
Bob will ask you to fill out a questionnaire and ask you questions about any aches, pains, expectations or concerns. Massage is a customizable and personal experience – by answering his questions, you can do a better job of ensuring your massage will be exactly what you are looking for. This means that Bob can design your massage and your massage experience to what you want, but also to answer to the therapeutic bodywork you need.
Throughout your massage, Bob will keep open lines of communication. He talks you through what he is doing and why. He also will introduce the variety of essential oils he uses and explains why each oil is an ideal addition to the treatment you are receiving. Ultimately, by the end of your massage, you will feel invigorated, energized and find a new sense of calm. Bob also will provide a few tips for self-massage care at home that may be pertinent to you and provide you with some bodywork guidelines to enhance your massage experience.
Book An Appointment at Tranquility Massage and Wellness Center
Ovitt understands that when people make choices about a massage therapist, there are many factors they should consider. He explained, people “must ensure their protection and safety by making sure that the massage therapist is licensed and insured and California state-certified.” What this means is that there is a major difference between someone claiming to be a bodyworker or massage therapist, and someone who has been trained to be a massage therapist. It is also important to remember that bodyworkers who take their trade seriously, will take the additional steps to protect their clients with continuing education, appropriate licensing and obtaining the necessary licenses and insurance to provide a safe and welcoming massage therapy experience to their new, and existing clients.
