Are there any preparations I need to make before my appointment?​

It is best to take a shower before your appointment to avoid any embarrassments,  just like you would brush your teeth before going to the dentist.

Eat only a light meal at least 60 minutes before your massage treatment if you have to.  This is a similar process to swimming or a work out when your body will take all the blood away from the digestion process and take it to the working peripheral tissues causing poor digestion and possible discomfort.

Must I undress for my massage?​

 

Massage Therapists are required to cover/drape you with a sheet so that they expose only the area which they are working on.  You may need to undress for therapy.  However, you do not need to expose yourself in any way that you are uncomfortable.

Can I still get a massage even if I bruise easily?​

It is important to let your massage therapist know ( health history form ).  Massage therapy is not recommended for people who suffer from hemophilia.

Am I expected to talk during the treatment?​

If you wish to have silence, you should say so the beginning of the treatment.  The therapist may, however, require verbal information pertinent to health findings during the treatment.

What can I expect when I go for a massage appointment?​​

 

On your first visit, you will complete a confidential health history form.   Your therapist will go over your health history form and a postural assessment with you to determine your treatment needs and goals.  It is advised to come 10-15 minutes earlier on your first visit.​

After my appointment, is there anything I need to have on hand or anything specific I should do?​​

 

An epson salt bath is recommended to soothe and to calm muscles and enhance the benefits of massage.  It will help to alleviate stiffness you may feel the next day, and it is also recommended for use after workouts for the same reason.  Have on hand a bottle of water to drink and keep your tissues hydrated.
