Frequently Asked Questions
Your Questions, Answered
What should I wear during my massage?
It’s completely a matter of personal preference. Many guests choose to disrobe completely, whereas others prefer to leave their undergarments on. Either way, our massage therapists are professionally trained to keep your body entirely covered throughout the massage, aside from the area being worked on, to ensure your privacy.
Must I be completely undressed?
Most massage techniques are traditionally performed with the client unclothed; however, it is entirely up to you what you want to wear. You should undress to your level of comfort. You will be properly draped during the entire session.
Will the practitioner be present when I disrobe?
The practitioner will leave the room while you undress, relax onto the table, and cover yourself with a clean sheet or towel.
Will I be covered during the session?
You will be properly draped at all times to keep you warm and comfortable. Only the area being worked on will be exposed.
What should I do during the massage?
Prior to the massage, feel free to ask the practitioner any questions about the technique or the upcoming session. During the massage, make yourself comfortable. The practitioner will either gently move you or tell you what is needed throughout the session (such as lifting your arm). Many people just close their eyes and completely relax, communicating if/when they need more or less pressure, another blanket, 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.

Where will my massage session take place?
Your massage session will take place in a warm, comfortable, quiet room. Soft music may be played to help you relax. You will lie on a table especially designed for your comfort.
What parts of my body will be massaged?
A typical full-body session will include work on your back, arms, legs, feet, hands, head, neck, and shoulders.
What will the massage feel like?
A relaxing Swedish massage can be a baseline for clients. In a general Swedish massage, the session may start with broad, flowing strokes that will help calm your nervous system and relax exterior muscle tension. As your body becomes relaxed, pressure will gradually be increased to relax specific areas and relieve areas of muscular tension. Often, oil, cream or lotion is used to allow your muscles to be massaged without causing excessive friction to the skin. They also help hydrate your 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.
How will I feel after the massage?
Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience freedom from long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity which can last for days. Since toxins are released from your soft tissues during a massage, it is recommended you drink plenty of water following your massage.
What are the benefits of massage?
Massage work can help release chronic muscular tension and pain, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce mental and physical fatigue and stress, promote faster healing of injured muscular tissue, improve posture, and reduce blood pressure. Massage and bodywork is also known to promote better sleep, improve concentration, reduce anxiety and create an overall sense of well-being.
Are there any medical conditions that would make massage unadvisable?
Yes. That's why it's imperative that, before you begin your session, the therapist asks general health questions. It is very important that you inform the practitioner of any health problems or medications you are taking. If you are under a doctor's care, it is strongly advised that you receive a written recommendation for massage or bodywork prior to any session. Depending on the condition, approval from your doctor may be required.
What You Can Expect
MEET & GREET
Your massage therapist will discuss what you’re hoping to get out of your massage session, areas that need to be worked on, and any questions you might have prior to starting - all in the privacy of the treatment room. During this time if you have not already filled out your medical history and consent forms, they will be completed. This step is important, so it’s best to arrive 15 minutes early to give yourself enough time to focus on yourself.
LET’S GET TO KNOW YOU
You’ll then go over your personalized form with your therapist and discuss the areas of your body you'd like to address. Please inform us of any bruises, inflamed skin, unhealed wounds, tumors, or any areas of recent fractures so we can work around these areas. Your session time includes 10 minutes for consultation and dressing.
Your therapist will step out for a moment, allowing you to disrobe (to your comfort level). Many guests choose to disrobe completely, whereas others prefer to leave their undergarments on and lay onto the table underneath the top sheet and blanket. During your massage, your therapist will only uncover the areas of your body they’re working on.
DURING YOUR MASSAGE
You can ask for either a full-body massage (for general relaxation) or a customized session focusing on specific parts of your body. Remember, your comfort matters. Feel free to talk with your therapist as much, or as little, as you wish.
It’s important to relax your mind and muscles during your massage. Breathe normally and try not to tighten or contract your muscles. Maintain open lines of communication with your therapist if you’d like to provide feedback on their pressure or techniques.
When your massage is complete, your therapist will step outside while you dress. When you’re ready, walk to the front and meet your therapist. If you appreciated your experience, you can always leave a tip. Tips are not expected but are always appreciated. We look forward to your visit!
