What to Expect


PREPARATION

Before your massage, please print and complete the following form. This will help me assess your needs and create a massage that is customized perfectly to fit you.

HEALTH HISTORY

For new clients, please arrive 5-10 minutes early to complete the health history form if you do not wish to fill it out before-hand.

 

UPON ARRIVAL

Upon your arrival, we will discuss how you are feeling that day, if any new health issues arose between now and the time of your last appointment, and any specific areas you are experiencing pain or would like to address during the session. I will then leave the room to wash my hands while you undress to the level of your comfort. Once undressed, you will lie on the massage table under the top sheet. I will knock on the door after about 3-5 minutes, and once you let me know that you are ready we will begin your massage.

 

DURING YOUR MASSAGE

While I always encourage you to deeply relax during your massage, communication with me throughout is very important to keep me aware of how you’re doing so that you can get the most out of your massage session. I will check in with you periodically. However, if anything at all comes up during the session – if you are experiencing any physical or emotional discomfort, pain that is intolerable/not a “good hurt”, would like a change in the amount of pressure you are receiving, or would like me to focus more on a particular area – do not hesitate to let me know and I will adjust the technique accordingly. Some people enjoy talking during their massage, but others just want to deeply relax without the conversation. Either is perfectly fine, and if I can tell you just want to relax and unwind, I will make sure you do just that.

 

AFTER YOUR MASSAGE

Once your session has ended, I will again leave the room while you get dressed, and you will let me know when you are done. Please be sure to rest and drink plenty of water to help your muscles rehydrate and your body to flush out toxins. Also, please do any self care that I recommend between now and the time of your next massage. This will help you get the most benefit out of your massage sessions and see faster improvements in your body. I encourage everyone to get regular massages, whether that be once a month, every two weeks, or even every week, depending on your condition and lifestyle. Invest in your health and your body will take care of you! I look forward to seeing you, and please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have further questions.
