What can we expect from a massage?
You can expect to have your massage in a safe, nurturing environment. You can expect to feel peaceful, relaxed and calm afterwards. You can expect to be listened to – you are the one who knows your body. We can assist your body in finding its way to optimal health through stress-relief and relaxation. We view our clients as whole, and hold that vision for them.
What happens during a session?
After filling out some confidential paperwork, we will discuss your goals, after which you will be left alone in the massage room to undress to your level of comfort. You will get on the massage table, where you will cover yourself up with a sheet. A therapist will not enter the room until you are ready. We offer background music, however silent sessions can be easily arranged. When the massage is done, the therapist will leave the room so you can re-dress in private.
Is there anything we need to do to prepare for a session?
It helps to be well hydrated, so be sure to drink plenty of fluids the day of your massage. If you are coming in for a facial, please have any make-up removed prior.
How much water should we drink?
The best way to tell if you are drinking enough is to check your urine. If it is clear and odor free, you are drinking enough. If it has a strong odor and color, then you probably will want to increase the amount you drink, unless you are on water restriction for medical reasons.
Is it OK to talk during a session?
That is totally up to you.The therapist will occasionally ask a few questions, pertaining to your comfort level, and how you are feeling. Some people relax by talking while others prefer to have their massage in silence. It’s your massage – you decide if you want to talk to not. Often times, people will start out talking, then "drift away” as the massage proceeds. Whatever helps you relax the most is best.
How often should we get a massage?
The industry standard recommends once a week, but it depends on your goals and your budget.
Should we refer friends and family?
Yes, referrals are an important part of our business. Your recommendations to others are more meaningful than any advertisement we could devise. We appreciate the trust you put in us, and promise to take very good care of your friends, family and associates. We also offer incentives and rewards for your recommendations. Ask us about these in store!
