Knowing what to expect at your first Massage Therapy session will ease any anxiety you may have.
Before your session begins, I will ask you to complete an Intake Form. The purpose of this confidential form is to maximize the safety and effectiveness of your massage. You can download and complete this form before your arrival.
Depending on your needs and requests, I will perform a customized full body massage for relaxation and stress reduction and/or focus on specific parts of your body that you have requested.
I will instruct you to undress to your level of comfort and then lie under the sheet face down. I will leave the room to give you privacy to undress and knock on the door to re- enter when you are comfortable and ready to begin your session.
The top sheet drapes you at all times. Only the part of the body I am working on is exposed.
I use a massage cream to allow your muscles to be massaged without causing excessive friction to the skin. Communication is very important during a massage therapy session; so at any time you feel the pressure is too deep or even too light, please express that to me.
A typical Massage Therapy session lasts for 60 minutes. I will quietly leave the room when your session is over to give time to redress. Some people experience light-headedness after a massage therapy session, so always take your time getting up.
Since toxins are released from your soft tissues during a massage, it is recommended you drink plenty of water following your massage.
If you should have any questions regarding your first (or any) massage therapy session, please feel free to contact me.
