We’re Here for You
When choosing a therapist, you want to be sure you’re choosing one that you can fully trust to answer all of your questions and concerns. Below, you will find a list of some of the most frequently asked questions and concerns I receive from my clients. Connect with me today for more information.
What will my first session be like?
Before your first session begins, your therapist will ask you to fill out a health history form. This usually takes 5-10 minutes, so it's common to arrive early for your first appointment. Afterwards, your therapist will begin by asking you general questions to establish what areas of your body you would like addressed or avoided during your massage, if you have pain anywhere or complaints, if there are any conditions needing to be addressed and to determine if massage is appropriate for you. Your massage therapist may perform certain assessments to evaluate your condition.
How long does a massage session last?
An average full-body massage treatment lasts approximately one hour. A half-hour appointment is generally focused on a specific concern and only allows time for a partial massage session, such as neck and shoulders, back or legs and feet. Many people prefer a 60- to 90-minute session for optimal relaxation. Always allow yourself time to relax prior to and after the session. Sessions can be scheduled for amounts of time ranging from 15 minutes to 2 hours.
Do you use oils or lotions I may be allergic to?
Only hypoallergenic, scent-free lotion or coconut oil are used during a general massage session. However, if you have sensitivity to certain types of oils or lotion please bring it to your massage therapist's attention before your session so that other options can be discussed if necessary. If you've scheduled a deep tissue treatment, aromatherapy, CBD infused treatment, etc. please note that there will be different types of oils or lotions used. These will be discussed prior to your first session and a list of ingredients will always be available for your review.
