What to expect during your therapeutic massage:

  • The therapist will ask you to undress ( many people keep their underwear on) while the massage therapist is out of the room, and lie down under a sheet on a massage table.

  • To ensure you are ready the therapist will knock on the door before re-entering the room. The therapist will ensure your comfort by adjusting pillow and bolsters before beginning the massage.

  • The massage therapist will use a light lotion on the skin to begin the massage. A full body massage usually begins on the back and then moves down to the legs. You will then turn over and the massage will continue on your legs, arms and neck.

  • You are underneath a sheet the entire time, only the body part being treated at any time is uncovered.

  • Once the massage session is complete, the massage therapist will leave the room while you get dressed.

  • Massage should not hurt. During a massage there may be mild aching when a therapist applies pressure over a knot or other areas of tension. Please inform the therapist if the pressure is too much for you. Most people feel calm and relaxed after a massage. Occasionally, people can experience mild temporary aching for a day.
