Massage Etiquette

A Guide To Massage Etiquette

  • If you cannot make your appointment, please call us to let us know.  If no one answers the phone, leave a message so we can fill that spot with another client.  We value your time, and we ask that you afford us the same courtesy.

  • Arrive at least 10 to 15 minutes early to fill out any necessary paperwork, use the restroom if you have to, and wind down before your session begins.

  • Make sure you've had enough water in the days prior to your massage.  Hydrated cells make for an easier release of toxins.

  • Try not to eat a heavy meal directly before the start of your session.  You will most likely be on your stomach at some point in the massage and lying on a full stomach may be very uncomfortable.

  • We suggest that you not get a massage if you're intoxicated.  This may cause you to feel sick  at some point and possibly have to throw up.

  • Please refrain from wearing strong scents (perfumes or colognes) as a courtesy to your therapist and any client coming in after you.

  • Proper personal hygiene is expected and appreciated.  If you would like us to massage your feet, please make sure that they are clean.  If not, it's highly likely that we may transfer some of that "foot goo" to other body parts during the remainder of the massage.

  • Turn off or silence your cell phone.

  • You do not have to be completely naked during your session.  Your therapist will tell you to undress to your comfort level before they step out of the room.  However, to get the biggest benefit from your massage, you should remove everything except your boxers/briefs or panties.

  • Always stay in communication with your therapist throughout the duration of your massage.  If the pressure was perfect on your back, but a little too much on your calves, just let them know and they will adjust it.

  • Do not ask or speak about anything of a sexual nature with your therapist at any point during your massage session.  This includes touching yourself, making suggestive movements, grinding on the table or uncovering yourself during the massage.  It is inappropriate, offensive, rude and illegal.  This will result in an immediate end to your session and you will be charged the full amount.

  • Leave your troubles at the door, and enjoy your massage.

  • Regarding tips/gratuities - The price of your massage does not include a tip and we do not automatically add gratuity upon checkout.  Your therapist only receives a small portion of the amount charged for your session and they rely on tips as part of their wages.  If you can honestly say that your therapist met or exceeded your expectations, we ask that you please show your gratitude with a tip.  The average tip for a 60 minute session is $10 - $20, and $25 - $35 for a 90 minute session.
