What is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy physically and emotionally rejuvenates the body and mind by relaxing the muscles and easing and soothing your aches and pains.  We provide customized massages, and for added convenience we offer appointment times to accommodate your busy schedule: We are open Monday through Saturday, mornings, afternoons, and evenings.

Massage is the practice of soft tissue manipulation with physical and functional goals. Massage involves acting on and applying pressure, tension, motion, or vibration manually on the client's body. Target tissue may include muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, or other connective tissue as well as lymphatic vessels.

Chiropractic Care

What makes our massage therapy clinic unique is the availability of state-of-art chiropractic treatments. Dr. Alward has been providing chiropractic care to Sacramento residents for thirty years.


Your First Visit

When you arrive at [n8] Touch Massage you will be greeted by our front desk staff. They will ask you to fill out a Client Intake Form. The Client Intake Form asks for information about your medical history, including any physical conditions you may currently have. Your massage therapist will review your Client Intake Form and then meet you and ask you what you would like specifically addressed during your massage.

Your massage therapist will take you to a relaxing massage treatment room. Each massage room has adjustable lighting and music volume for your comfort, as well as a private wardrobe cabinet for your personal belongings. Clients can disrobe partially or completely according to their comfort level. Your massage therapist will give you a few minutes to disrobe and lie on the massage table under the top sheet. The massage therapist will knock on the door to ask if you are ready before entering the room.

The massage therapist will perform a full body massage for relaxation and stress reduction or perform a specialized massage with focus on a specific body part.

Once your massage session is completed, your therapist will leave the room so you can get dressed. Your massage therapist will wait outside the room and escort you back the the front desk. Our massage therapy sessions are one hour in length, which includes a 5 minutes for pre-interview and to undress, 50 minutes of massage and 5 minutes to dress.
