You will be asked to arrive 5 –10 minutes early for your first massage to fill out our client profile sheet. The information is used by the massage therapist before each massage to evaluate and ensure that your experience is positive and rewarding.
One of our trained professional therapists will conduct your session. After the therapist consults with you about that day’s session, she will leave the room for you to undress privately, relax onto the table, and cover yourself with the clean sheet provided.
Traditionally, the client is unclothed for most massage and bodywork treatment; some therapies do not require you to undress. However, no matter what treatment you receive, you will decide what amount of clothing you prefer to wear for your maximum comfort. Women are always welcome to bring a two-piece bathing suit to wear, and men can opt to bring swim trunks or gym shorts.
The following will also make you more comfortable: try to refrain from eating a heavy meal before a massage; remove contact lenses; and if possible, turn off your cell phone to avoid distraction.
Once the therapist returns, she will make sure you’re comfortable before beginning the session. During the therapy, many people simply close their eyes and relax; others prefer to talk. Please feel free to do whatever is most comforting and relaxing for you.
The therapist will undrape only the part of your body being massaged, respecting your modesty at all times. She may use oil or lotion during your treatment to allow your muscles to be massaged without causing undue friction to the skin.
We do our best to make your experience peaceful and comfortable. Please let us know immediately if you experience distractions or discomforts, such as problems with room temperature, music volume, or any physical discomfort.
After the massage, you will feel deeply relaxed and calm. Many times, there is an initial period of feeling slowed down, but after that time, you may experience heightened awareness, increased energy, and greater productivity that can last for days.There are some instances when massage therapy may not be appropriate. The most common conflict is fever. We can accommodate for pregnancy as well as physical disabilities. If you have any doubts or questions, be sure to ask when calling to make your appointment.
Please arrive at least five minutes early for your appointment. To uphold a professional standard, we regret we cannot give you additional time if you arrive late for your appointment. If, for ANY reason, we are late starting your appointment, you will receive the full time scheduled.
We request 24-hours notice for any cancellations to allow us time to rebook your appointment. If you do not show up for your appointment, or if you cancel it with less than 24-hours notice, you will be charged for that session. If you are able to send someone else to fill your spot, we can charge your replacement for the appointment with no charge to you.
