Angie's List: Massages for Mother's Day

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

A massage can be a great way to help relieve pain and stress.

And it could be the perfect gift for Mom this Mother's Day.

In this Angie's List report, KULR-8's Emily Nantz, who wishes she was getting a massage right now, will tell you what you need to know about massage therapy.

"If someone wants to come in and relax I'm going to use mostly Swedish techniques. If someone is coming in for pain relief I'm going to add in some trigger points," says Danielle Fry, a massage therapist.

Massage therapist Danielle Frey (Fry) says Swedish and deep tissue ares the most common massages, but there are many techniques available today.

"I've gotten massage for many years just because I have a lot of tension," says Amy Wallarab while laughing.

She enjoys a massage called Thai yoga which involves stretching and compression work.

Frey says it has many benefits.

"Increased flexibility is a big one. It really works deep into the muscles to help relax the muscles. You feel relaxed but also rejuvenated and energized afterwards," says Fry.

With any service, ask questions to be sure you are comfortable with the service.

"A massage can be a great way to pamper your mom this Mother's Day, but be sure it's going to be something she is going to want to do and is comfortable with. The last thing your mom is going to tell you is you wasted money. She probably won't be comfortable and she'll just throw the certificate in the drawer and never talk about it," says Angie Hicks, founder.

Massage might not be ideal for anyone, especially those with health problems. If you are considering a gift of massage for Mom, make sure she checks first with her doctor.
