The joy is that we can take back our bodies, reclaim our health, and restore ourselves to balance. –John Robbins
How long are the appointments?
We offer 30 minute, 60 minute and 90 minute massage sessions. The appointment time is usually slightly longer than your session time to allow for discussion of your needs, recommendations after and the time to dress and undress. For example, allow 1 hr 15 min or so for your hour long appointment. However, if you arrive late, the therapist will have to adjust the session to accommodate the same planned ending time to give the next client their full session.
What will happen at my first visit?
At your first appointment we will ask you to complete a brief health history form and we will discuss your history and goals for the session. It isn’t necessary to arrive more than 5 minutes early.
You will be brought into the massage room, where you will be greeted with soothing music, soft lighting and a comfortable
massage table. You can undress to your comfort level and you will be draped securely throughout the session for modesty and safety.
For a full body massage, we typically work on the back, legs, arms, head, neck and face. Abdominal, gluteal or sternum work can be done if requested. If there is any area you would prefer not to be worked on, or an area you would like special attention given to, please alert the therapist. We will be happy to tailor the session to your preferences and needs. Also, lighter or deeper pressure can be used, based on your feedback.
After the massage, we will take a few minutes to discuss how the session went. Any feedback about what you liked more or less will go into your notes to improve our future sessions together. We will also provide to you suggestions for maintaining the benefits of our massage and to make you more comfortable in your daily activities.
