If you are new to massage therapy, you may have some questions!
Below are the answers to my most frequently asked questions.
If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact me.
Do I have to remove all of my clothing?
No, you can choose to keep all or some of your clothing on to fit your comfort level. The purpose of removing clothing is to use lotion on the skin, allowing for a wider variety of techniques to be used. You will always be completely covered by the sheets, except for the area that is currently being worked on, and you will have complete privacy to get on and off the table and undress/redress.
Will my massage hurt?
No, you should never be in pain during a massage therapy treatment. Often when muscles get very tight they can feel slightly uncomfortable when they are worked on, but it should always feel like a good pain, never a pain that you need to hold your breath or tense up to fight through.
How old do you have to be to get a massage?
Massage therapy does not have a specific age of consent, only informed consent, meaning that if an individual is able to understand all the information discussed and make choices and give consent then they are able to get a massage.
Am I expected to talk during massage?
Not at all! The amount of talking is set by you, and I follow your lead. You can chat the entire session if you’d like or stay silent, other than checking in regarding pressure and your comfort level.
What is your cancellation policy?
24 hours notice is required for cancelling or changing appointments. This is to respect both of our time, as well as clients waiting for an appointment, since your appointment time has been set aside especially for you. We do understand that emergencies and situations out of our control do happen.
How often will I need massage treatments?
No person is the same and no treatment plan is the same, so what works for some people won’t work for everyone! Most people find relief after 1 session, however that relief can last for as little as one day or as long as several weeks. A treatment plan will be discussed after your first assessment and appointment to determine what works best for you.
