What to Expect at Your Massage Session

Preliminary Information

  • I will ask preliminary questions to determine your overall health.
  • We will consider information about your physical condition, medical history, lifestyle, stress levels, medications and any areas of physical pain that could affect your massage therapy outcome.
  • This information will help us structure your session to achieve your health and wellness goals.

Privacy

  • Following your health assessment but before your massage, you’ll be asked to remove clothing to your level of comfort.
  • I will leave the room while you undress. Take off only as much as you are comfortable removing.
  • Lie on the massage table, underneath the provided sheet and blanket which will cover your body throughout the session except for the part being massaged.

Environment

  • There will be soft music in the background, if you find music distracting, let me know. The same goes for talking during your session.
  • I will check on pressure and comfort throughout your appointment. If you're uncomfortable at any time, let me know.
  • The massage table is padded, and will have a face cradle, which allows you to lie face down without turning your head or neck.

Massage Therapy Session

  • I often use oil, cream, or gel. If you have any allergies, please let me know before hand.
  • If you're receiving hot stone massage, make sure you're comfortable with the temperature of the stones.  I will check in with you about temperature throughout your massage.
  • Depending on your needs, you will experience a full body massage (excluding abdominal and private areas) or only specific areas that need attention.
  • Remember to breathe normally.
  • Our massage will usually last between 3o and 90 minutes.
  • After your massage, I will leave the room so you can slowly get up and get dressed in privacy.
  • Tips are appreciated to recognize outstanding service, but not required.

Follow Up

  • The benefits of massage are cumulative, so we will work together to customize a plan to meet your health and wellness goals.
  • Remember to drink plenty of fluids after your massage!
