Q: It’s my first massage. How do I know what type of massage is right for me?
A: You don’t have to. Prior to your first session you will fill out an intake form providing information about your health history, activity level and other factors that may be impacting your health/wellness at that time. Your therapist will review this information with you, discussing your goals and what you would like to accomplish during your treatment, and will then be able to determine what techniques are most appropriate for you.
Q: Do I have to get naked?
A: No. After your pre-session consultation, your therapist will step out of the room to allow for your privacy as you get on the massage table. You will undress to your level of comfort. Some people prefer to be naked, while others prefer to keep their underwear on. When you get on the massage table you will cover yourself with a sheet/blanket. Your therapist will only undrape the area of your body that they are working on at that time, with the utmost respect for your comfort and privacy.
Q: What if it’s too hot/cold, the music is too loud, the lights are too bright or the pressure is uncomfortable?
A: Your comfort is our priority, and communication is the key. Your therapist will check in with you throughout the session to assess your comfort level. Please do not hesitate to tell your therapist if there are any environmental factors that are effecting your ability to get the most out of your session.
Q: I think I have a cold. Can I still get a massage?
A: No, please!!! We love to see you, but we don’t love your germs. If you are sick, please stay home and rest. Notify us as soon as you realize you are sick so that we can reschedule your appointment.
Q: I would like to try Thai massage, but I don’t have time for a 90 minute session. Can I get an hour Thai massage?
A: In order to maintain the integrity of this ancient form of bodywork we have chosen not to offer abbreviated sessions. However, some of the Thai-style stretches can be incorporated into your regular massage session.
