What to Expect at Your First Massage

Expect to arrive 15 minutes early in order to fill out paperwork and not feel rushed.

You will talk with our massage practitioner about your general health and about anything currently happening in your body that massage might be able to help (e.g., tight shoulders, stiff neck, lower back pain, sore limbs, tension headaches, etc.) This allows our practitioner to tailor the massage to meet your current needs and also helps to determine if there is a medical reason you should not have a massage at this time.

You will receive your massage in a private room, in a space your practitioner has set up to maximize your relaxation and comfort. Our practitioners strive to provide a calm, clean, and peaceful environment, with relaxing music softly playing in the background.

Before your massage, our practitioners will ask you to disrobe to your comfort level and will leave the room while you undress. They will give you a few minutes to get on the table, cover yourself, and to relax before they return to begin your massage. You will be draped with a sheet during the entire massage; only one part of your body will be massaged at a time, and only that part (an arm, a leg, a foot, etc.) will be uncovered.

We try to use lotions and oils that are very light and very absorbent, so you will be able to put your clothes back on without fear of staining them or feeling too oily. If you prefer a different type of massage oil or cream, make sure to let the massage practitioner know.

If at any time you become uncomfortable, your practitioner will stop. If you want extra work on a particular area, you may request it. If you prefer that an area of your body not be touched, you can request that as well. If you want to talk with your practitioner during the session, that's fine. If you want to close your eyes and relax in silence, that's fine as well. You know your body and your needs best. Your practitioner will respond to whatever you feel is right for you.

At the end of the session, the practitioner will tell you that they are finished, and will leave the room so you can get dressed.
