What To Expect At Your Massage
You will be asked to arrive 5 - 10 Minutes early for your initial appointment as you will be asked to fill out a brief Health History Form.
The Massage Therapist will go over with you what you expect to achieve from your massage and discuss the massage tecniques that will be best in achieving that goal.
You will be asked to disrobe to your comfort level and to lay on the table and cover up with the sheets provided (the therapist will leave the room at this time).
Lubricant in the form of lotion will be used for most techniques and the therapist will only undrape the part of the body being massaged.
During most sessions talking is not necessary, although talking is needed during Neuromuscular Therapy or Myofascial Release as the therapist will ask if the applied pressure is comfortable.
After the massage the therapist will leave the room so you can quietly get of the table and dress.
After Neuromuscular Therapy you may experience delayed tenderness in that area. It should be slight and last only a few days. This is most common with the first session.
Please drink lots of water and don't plan on physical activity for the rest of the day. Also, drink a lot of water after your session as to help flush out the toxins. I will supply you with a bottle of water to get you started.
Payment is expected after the session. Check, cash, Pre-Paid cards, or gift certificates are accepted.
A massage can be repeated as often as you wish, from once a week to once every six weeks. Once a month is the most preferred between massages, although therapeutic massage is recommended more frequently for the best healing process.
