WHAT TO EXPECT
Many people aren’t sure what to expect when they schedule their first massage appointment. But we assure you, there is nothing to be nervous about!
Our therapists are well-trained professionals.
Although no two massages are alike, there are some things that are typical to each of our treatments. Your treatment will take place in a quiet, comfortable room. It may be dimly lit. Soothing music is also played in the room to help you relax during your treatment.
When you arrive
After introducing themselves, your therapist will ask why you are seeking bodywork, and inquire about any injuries or medical conditions you may have. You will also fill out a Health History Intake Form to provide further information to your therapist.
They may also ask additional questions to gather information that can help improve your overall experience.
Be honest with your therapist – their role is to ensure that you have the most pleasant and successful session possible.
BEFORE YOUR TREATMENT
DURING YOUR TREATMENT
Please make sure to communicate with your therapist about the pressure being applied. Though many massage therapists can tell when they are using light or deep pressure, it is always good to let them know how you feel. If you want more or less pressure, be sure to communicate that—the massage is all about you!
When your treatment is complete, the therapist will leave the room so that you can get dressed.
Sit up slowly and take your time getting dressed.
AFTER YOUR TREATMENT
Make sure to drink plenty of water.
Book your next session according to your therapist's recommendation.
Over the next few days, you may experience soreness if you requested a deep tissue massage. To alleviate discomfort, apply an ice pack to the area.
Let your massage therapist know about any discomfort you experienced and consider requesting less pressure during your next session.
Then, relax for the rest of the day!
