Before your massage begins, a massage therapist will meet with you to discuss your symptoms, medical history and the healing benefits you seek. Your therapist will leave the room so you can undress to a point where you feel comfortable. You will then lie on the massage table and cover yourself with the sheets and blanket provided. Sheets and a blanket will fully drape you during your entire session. We train our therapists to professionally drape clients, so you feel safe and comfortable during your treatment. Before starting, your therapist may evaluate you through palpation and movement assessments to observe imbalances, locate painful or tense areas and to determine how much pressure to apply. If your therapist pushes too hard, always feel comfortable to ask for lighter pressure. Communication is always encouraged so that your therapist can deliver the most beneficial massage. Your massage therapist will also review this information with you before your session begins. After your session, your therapist will recommend the frequency of treatments needed to reach your wellness goals and discuss a plan to help achieve these goals.
Massage therapists may apply hot towels, hot stones, cupping techniques, and essential oils during your massage. Far infrared heat therapy is also complimentary. Let your massage therapist know if you are allergic to any ingredients or plants. We use nut-free organic oils and lotions to help avoid common allergic reactions.
