GETTING ON THE TABLE
Once your therapist escorts you to the room you will have an opportunity to ask any questions or disclose any other information that you didn't include on the intake form. Let your therapist know exactly what's bothering you and what you want to get out of the session. You can decide at this time if you want a full body massage or if you want the therapist to just work on your back and legs, or maybe just the upper or lower body. The choice is yours.
Before the therapist leaves the room, they will let you know that you can undress to your comfort level. What this means is that you only have to take off what you want to take off to remain comfortable during your massage. The majority of our clients will take everything off except their undergarments (boxer/briefs/panties). Others opt to take everything off, and some people will leave their socks on if they don't want their feet worked on. Please know that what ever you decide to do, you will be completely covered throughout the duration of the massage. We only uncover the body part being worked on.
Your therapist will then leave the room and give you a couple of minutes for you to undress and get on the table. You will get under the top sheet and blanket and put your face in the face cradle.
Once your therapist re-enters the room, they will ask you if you feel comfortable and adjust either the temperature on the table, the face cradle or the bolster under your feet. At this time, if you don't like the relaxing music that's playing, you can ask your therapist to change it to something else that you'd like to hear.
When the massage begins, please communicate with your therapist at all times and let them know if you are feeling uncomfortable, sick, too hot or too cold, or if the pressure is too much or not enough. Please don't feel that you are being rude if you want to talk, or if you don't want to talk. This is your time and we are here to make you feel better in your body. Most people will fall asleep during the massage, so feel free to just relax and let the therapist de-stress you.
