WHAT TO EXPECT

Preliminary Information

  • I will ask preliminary questions to determine your overall health and your health and wellness goals.

  • I 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 me structure the session to achieve your health and wellness goals.


Privacy

  • 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 or blanket, which will cover your body except for the part being massaged.

Environment

  • Music might be played. If you find music distracting, let me know. 

  • 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 extra attachments or cushions, such as a face cradle, which allows you to lie facedown without turning your head or neck.


Massage Therapy Session

  • I often use massage cream. If you're allergic to creams, let me know beforehand.

  • Depending on your needs, and as agreed upon by you, I will massage either the full body (except private areas) or only specific areas that need attention, such as especially tight muscles.

  • Remember to breathe normally.

  • Table massage will last beween 60 and120 minutes.

  • After your massage, I will leave the room to allow you to slowly get up and get dressed in privacy.


Follow Up

  • The benefits of massage therapy are cumulative, so I will work with you to customize a plan to meet your health and wellness goals.

  • Massage therapy may cause some muscle soreness, similar to a workout for a few days following the treatment.  Nurture your body as changes are taking place and drink lots of extra water.
