What You Can Expect in a Massage

 

  • You will be asked to fill out health forms to inform me of any health issues or medications you may be taking
  • Arrive 10 minutes early to discuss any issues and disrobe for the massage
  • Shower and use minimal make-up before coming in for your massage
  • No heavy meal about an hour before will help you feel more comfortable on the table
  • Remove any jewelry prior to the massage
  • You’ll undress to your comfort level. Unclothed is the typical to allow for full muscle access
  • You’ll be in the room by yourself to disrobe then climb under the sheets on the table
  • I will come in when you tell me you are ready
  • You will be properly draped during the massage, removing the sheet in only the area I’m working on
  • You won’t be touched or exposed in the genitals (male or female) or the breasts (female)
  • The massage room will be dim lit and have soothing music playing to help you unwind and enjoy
  • I will apply warm towels to relax muscles and make you comfortable
  • A typical full body massage will include work on your face, head, neck, shoulders, arms, hands, back, legs, and feet
  • I will spend extra time on specific areas you may have listed for me
  • During the massage you may just relax and drift away; you may also tell me of any issues that need addressing; you may talk or not , it’s up to you
  • Tell me if you want more or less pressure anytime during the massage so that I can be using the pressure you prefer
  • I will be using a light oil or creme on your body
  • I will quietly inform you when your massage is over and I will step out of the room. If you feel you need assisstance getting off the table just let me know
  • After the massage you will feel very relaxed and soothed. You may feel an increase in energy and experience a more productive day following your massage
  • Massage increases the flow of blood filled with new oxygen through your body. It also moves toxins out of the body
  • You may experience a little light-headiness when you first get off the table so move slowly when you first get up and dress
  • You may come out when you are ready and I will have a glass of water waiting for you
  • We will then discuss the massage and how you are feeling in areas we discussed
  • You may have some tenderness in specific areas I worked, the next day. This should be very limited and may be addressed with applying ice
  • I feel that you should not experience a painful massage. Working the muscles dosen’t require a lot of pain. You should only feel a little discomfort
