Massage Safety Protocols for Reopening

Okra Family,

We are thrilled to share that Okra will begin reopening in stages on June 1st!

After receiving information from Governor Roy Cooper and Mecklenburg County Public Health Director, Gibbie Harris, we feel confident in our ability to safely move into stage 1 at that time. Please read on for what this means for Okra Myo Massage and the important safety protocol that will be taking effect.

The health and safety of our clients and staff is of utmost importance at Okra. Therefore, we will be following governmental guidelines and taking all necessary precautions, including:

  1. Change in cancellation policy: If you are feeling ill, please let us know prior to your massage appointment. There will be no penalty for cancelling same day.
  2. Staggered appointments: There will only be one massage therapist and one client scheduled for each individual appointment start time.
  3. Contactless thermometer testing: All clients and staff will have their forehead scanned before entering the building.
  4. Hand sanitizer + mask provided: All clients and staff will have their hands sanitized and will be provided with a free mask upon entry to be worn at all times.
  5. Massage room sanitation: The massage room will be fully sanitized before and after every appointment.
  6. Full service exceptions: We will be offering all massages and providing a full service. However, we will not be working around any client’s face or head.
  7. No in-studio cash or credit card transactions: All massages will need to be purchased over the phone or via your MINDBODY account.

We will begin taking appointments via phone on Tuesday, May 26th. A staff member will be on-site Tuesday through Friday from 12p-6p and Saturday and Sunday from 10a-4p to take calls and answer emails. If we miss you, please leave a message and we will respond to your inquiry within 24 hours.

Benefits of Massage

Through varied styles massage therapy can be used to treat injuries, soreness, tension, and other physical ailments. Though there are various forms of massage, ours focus primarily on providing healing or therapy that stimulates muscle tissue and eases pain. Depending on whether your pain is chronic or acute, or if you have a certain condition, one form of massage may be better for you than others. Use the calendar below to book an appointment or continue reading to learn more about the various styles that we offer.

Classic Massage

Swedish Massage

Using the 5 classic strokes, Swedish massage promotes relaxation, blood circulation and lymph flow. The five strokes include sliding, kneading, rhythmic tapping, friction, and vibration to enable the therapist to reach and relieve muscle tissue from the surface to down deep. Swedish Massage, known elsewhere as Classic Massage has been shown to aid in relieving joint stiffness, reducing pain, and improving muscle function.  This is a great massage style to work out many areas of the body and leave you feeling like a million bucks.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue works on the muscles and fascia located below the surface muscles. This massage modality is best utilized to treat consistent pain, people involved in heavy physical activity, or clients that have sustained a physical injury (e.g. whiplash, tweaked back). Deep tissue techniques are very valuable to areas of injury, but generally are not used for a full body session.

Specialty Massage

Full Body Reset

Designed to completely rejuvenate the mind and body, the Full Body Reset is a 2 hour session that combines a standard Swedish massage with full Raindrop Technique essential oil therapy. Read more about the FBR here.

Thai Thera Massage

Thai is a type of massage that involves assisted stretching and deep massage. This form of bodywork is performed on the floor and the client wears comfortable clothes that allow for free movement. The receiver is put into many yoga-like positions during the course of the massage. The massage practitioner leans on the recipient’s body using hands and usually straight forearms locked at the elbow to apply firm rhythmic pressure. Sessions can be booked for up to 2 hours with the option to do “The Combo” which includes 1 hour of Thai plus 1 hour of a standard Swedish massage.

ULTIMATE Mind Body Reboot

Launching this holiday, the 3-Hour ULTIMATE Mind Body Reboot is Okra’s most luxurious bodywork service yet and includes a 2-hour Full Body Reset followed by 1-hour Thai Thera Stretch & Release Session. $149 for a limited time!

Hot Stone Massage

Using basalt rocks to release heat deep into the muscles, this ancient massage technique is truly an out-of-this world experience. The heated stones are placed across the body where the heat is able to loosen tension in the muscles. This enables the client to relax while also making deeper tissues more easily accessible. Hot Stone therapy enables therapist to perform work on deeper muscle tissue without the discomfort that may be felt in other forms of massage. This Massage technique is great for fibromyalgia-related muscle pain.

Prenatal Massage

A massage tailored for your specific needs and issues during pregnancy. With the proper applications and a trained therapist, prenatal massage can be instrumental in prenatal care. Through the use of Swedish Massage techniques prenatal massage can reduce pains and anxiety while also addressing shifts in the skeleton and blood circulation during pregnancy. During the massage bolsters and pillows support your body while the therapist applies Swedish technique to restore you to your most balanced self.
