Lets start by reminding you that this is your session, so please speak up about any questions you may have before, during and after the massage. No question is to small or to big, from the amount of pressure needing to be adjusted, maybe you are cold or hot, or if you are uncomfortable at any time and need to readjust yourself on the massage table. You will not hurt our feelings by asking for something, we are here for you.
What can I expect my first time?
Upon arriving for your first visit you will be asked to fill out a brief health history form. This form is used to discover any medical issues you might be experiencing as well as pertinent health information. It is important to be honest with your massage therapist, we are here to help. After your finish filling out the form we will spend a minute with you asking general questions to establish the best course of therapy for you. It is very important to list all health concerns and medications so the we can adapt and adjust the session to your specific needs without causing harm. It is also important to list any allergies so the therapist is aware if he/she needs to use a different oil or lotion during the session.
Do I need to undress completely?
No, we want you to feel comfortable and if that means leaving all your under garments on, then that is okay.
Will I be covered?
Yes, this is called draping and during your session you must be covered. Once you are undressed you will get under the covers provided on the massage table. The therapist will them knock on the door to assure you're ready for them to enter. Once you're ready the massage will begin and only the body part being worked on will be uncovered. The genitals for both men and women as well as a woman's breasts will always remain covered. If you wish for your abdomen to be worked on a second drape will be used to cover your breasts and the main drape will be lowered to expose your abdomen.
Can I talk during the massage?
Absolutely, if you want to talk please feel free. We want you to be as comfortable as possible, many people might start off talking but as the session goes on they get quite and enter into deeper levels of relaxation.
Will you be playing music?
Yes, a relaxing music will play through out your session, if you prefer for it to be silent please let us know.
What type of oil do you use?
Only 100% jojoba oil.
Is a massage safe for me?
If you have any serious medical concerns it is always best to ask your doctor. We only want what is best for you, asking your doctor first is easy and can offer you piece of mind.
Is the building handicap accessible?
No, there is a flight of stairs to come down when entering through the upstairs and a small set outside when entering through the ground floor. The parking lot is slanted as we are located on a hill. The building is older and has no elevators.
Do you accept insurance?
No; however, I do provide receipts in the event that your insurance company/FSA/HSA offers reimbursement to you.
