Your first massage, what to expect.

Preliminary Information
  • Your massage therapist will ask preliminary questions to determine your overall health and your health and wellness goals.

  • The massage therapist 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 the massage therapist 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.

  • The therapist 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 towel, which will cover your body except for the part being massaged.

Environment
  • Music might be played. If you find music distracting, tell your massage therapist. The same goes for talking during your session.

  • Your massage therapists should check on pressure and comfort throughout your appointment. If you're uncomfortable at any time, tell your massage therapist.

  • The massage table is padded, and may 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
  • Massage therapists often use oil or lotion. If you're allergic to oils or lotions, tell your massage therapist beforehand.

  • Depending on your needs, the massage therapist 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 usually lasts beween 30 and 90 minutes.

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