FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Must I be completely undressed?

With the exception of chair massage, treatments are typically performed with the client unclothed. However, it is completely up to you what you want to wear. You should undress to your level of comfort. You will be properly draped under a sheet and blanket during the entire session.

Will the practitioner be present when I undress?

No. The practitioner will leave the room while you undress, relax onto the table, and cover yourself with the provided sheet and blanket.

Will I be covered during the session?

Yes. You will be properly draped under a sheet and blanket at all times to keep you warm and comfortable. Only the area being worked on will be exposed.

What parts of my body will be massaged?

You and the practitioner will discuss the desired outcome of your session. This will determine which parts of your body require massage. A typical full body session will include work on your back, arms, legs, feet, hands, head, neck, and shoulders. You will not be touched on or near your genitals or breasts. Abdominal massage is also available upon request.

What will the massage feel like?

Sessions begin with broad, flowing strokes or slow compression and holding that will help calm your nervous system and relax exterior muscle tension. As your body becomes relaxed, pressure will gradually be increased to relieve specific areas of muscular tension. Oil is used to allow your muscles to be massaged without causing excessive friction to the skin. You should communicate immediately if you feel any discomfort so that another approach may be taken. Massage is most effective when your body is not resisting.

What time length is right for me?

A standard full body massage is one hour. A 30 minute appointment only allows time for a focused treatment, such as neck, shoulders, and back. Many people prefer a 60 to 90 minute session for optimal relaxation, but treatments can be in 15 minute increments 30-120 minutes in length.

What should I do during the session?

During the massage, focus on your breath. Without judgement or attachment, notice any thoughts or emotions that arise. Use the time to completely let go.  The practitioner will either gently move you or tell you what is needed throughout the session (such as lifting your arm). It is very important to communicate if/when you'd like more or less pressure, temperature adjustment, or anything else relevant to the session. If you have any questions regarding the session, or about the particular technique you are receiving, feel free to ask the practitioner at any time.

What if I become aroused?

Massage stimulates the senses and, above all, increases circulation. It is not uncommon to experience arousal. The treatment will at no point become sexual in nature and it is best to simply let the feeling pass.

How will I feel afterward?

Most people feel very relaxed. Many experience freedom from long term aches and pains. It is not uncommon to feel soreness in areas which were previously very tense if they have been worked deeply. Drinking a lot of extra water will help improve this quickly. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity which can last for days.

How often should I get a massage?

Depending on your condition, massage could be recommended as much as 3 times per week in order to relieve specific ailments. Other common frequencies are once per week, or once every other week. For general maintenance, one treatment per month is often sufficient.
