Please download and fill out information forms previous to your first visit:
- Before your massage, you’ll be asked to remove clothing to your level of comfort.
- The therapist will leave the room while you undress and remove any jewelry or other articles that might interfere with the massage. Take off only as much as you are comfortable removing.
- Lie on the massage table, underneath the provided sheet or towel, which will cover your body except for the part being massaged.
Create Your Massage
- Music might be played during your massage session. If you find music distracting, let your massage therapist know your preferences. The same goes for talking during your session.
- Your massage therapists should check in about pressure and comfort throughout your session. If you’re uncomfortable at any time, let your massage therapist know.
- The massage table is padded, and may have extra attachments or cushions, such as a face cradle, which allows you to lie facedown without turning your head or neck.
The Massage / Treatment
- The massage therapist may use oil or lotion, which reduces drag on the skin while performing the massage strokes. If you’re allergic to oils or lotions, tell your massage therapist before your massage begins.
- If you’re receiving a hot stone massage, make sure you’re comfortable with the temperature of the stones.
- Depending on your needs, the massage therapist will massage either the full body (except for private areas) or only specific areas that need attention, such as especially tight muscles.
- Remember to breathe normally.
- Table massage sessions usually last beween 30 and 90 minutes.
After Your Session
Your therapist will leave the room and wait for you outside the room. Take your time getting up and dressed! You will be offered water to take with you. At that time you can pay and schedule your next session. Any after care instructions will be given at that time as well.
