FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY FIRST VISIT?
Plan for some time before and after your appointment. (About 10 minutes each.)
Your therapist will want to speak with you about your physical/mental health and provide information about how massage therapy can assist you before beginning your session.
This also leaves time towards the end of your session for any questions and/or to book your next appointment.
Wear comfortable clothing.
Please bring a valid ID that matches the name listed on your appointment.
CAN I TALK DURING MY SESSION?
When you come in for your sessions, gauge how you're feeling that day.
Sometimes talking helps your mind and body relax. And other times you may want to be quiet and even fall asleep.
Any of these or a combination of them all are just fine.
Also communicating with your therapist is very important! If you would like a change in pressure, temperature, or lighting let your therapist know.
DO I HAVE TO GET COMPLETELY UNDRESSED?
You should undress to your comfort level. Your therapist will work around the clothes you left on as best as she can.
Your massage therapist should give you privacy to undress and get comfortable on the table.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I RECEIVE MASSAGE?
When deciding how often to come in to the office for bodywork, I tell my clients to gauge how they are feeling, what their workload/stress levels are at the time, what they can afford, and how much time they will/can give to themselves.
I often suggest between 2 - 6 weeks from your last appointment.
HOW LONG ARE THE SESSIONS?
60 minutes - A full body restorative massage with no specific areas of work. Or a session focused around 1 specific area of discomfort.
75 minutes - A full body restorative massage with 1 specific area of work.
90 minutes - A full body massage with time for 2 focus areas. (depending on the severity.) Or a session for deep relaxation.
ARE THERE TIMES THAT I SHOULDN'T RECEIVE MASSAGE?
Massage Therapy is Great for the body, but there are a few situations where it may not be recommended.
If you have Covid, a fever, cold/flu, or a contagious skin infection. Please wait until you are well, symptoms have subsided, and your doctor has cleared you to schedule an appointment.
Massage therapy is a healing art that we use to help the body and mind get to a healthier place. Massage therapy is not a sexual service. Any illicit or sexually suggestive remarks or advances will result in the immediate termination of your session, and as a client in this office.
Please reschedule or cancel your appointment a full 24 hours from the time of your appointment, so that your therapist has an adequate amount of time to fill the space.
In circumstances where an appointment was not cancelled in time or a no call/no show you will be charged the full appointment fee.
If you are more than 15 minutes late without contacting the office your appointment will be cancelled.
