Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q)
What a Typical Massage Therapy Session is Like?
A typical massage therapy session is between 60 and 120 minutes. Your massage will begin with a brief consultation and review of symptoms, medical history, and lifestyle.
You will be asked to undress (keep the underwear on) while the massage therapist is out of the room, and lie face down under a sheet on a padded massage table.
The massage therapist will knock on the door to make sure you are ready. The massage therapist re-enters the room and will then adjust the face rest and pillows to ensure that you are comfortable and properly positioned. Tell the massage therapist if you are too warm or cold.
The massage therapist uses a light oil or lotion on the skin and begins the massage. A full body massage usually begins on the legs and then moves up to the back. You will then be asked to turn over so you are face up. The massage continues on your legs, arms, neck, and abdomen.
You are underneath the sheet at all times, and only the part of the body being treated at the time is uncovered.
After the massage, the massage therapist leaves the room so you can get changed. Take your time getting up. If you sit or stand too quickly you may feel lightheaded or dizzy.
Will Massage Therapy Hurt?
Massage therapy shouldn’t hurt. Occasionally there is mild aching when the massage therapist applies pressure over “knots” and other areas of muscle tension. If the pressure is too strong for you, let the massage therapist know.
How Will I Feel After a Massage?
Most people feel calm and relaxed after a treatment. Occasionally, people experience mild temporary aching for a day or two.
Do you offer sexual services of any kind?
No, I do not offer any sexual services. Whilst massage is an intimate process the service I provide is wholly professional.
Can I eat before a massage?
It is recommended not to have a massage on a full stomach, wait at least for an hour in order to appreciate massage without any discomfort.
