A brief intake form will need to be completed. This will be emailed to you, along with your appointment details after you’ve booked an appointment. You may complete this prior to, or at the time of your appointment (done electronically). If you wish to fill out a paper form, you may print the form that was emailed, to fill out to bring with you (Paper copies not kept on site).
We’ll talk about what brings you in for a massage. Are you having pain? Do you need to relax?
I’ll show you to the massage room and walk you through the process. I’ll wait outside the room and give you time to get comfortable under the draping sheet & blanket on the massage table.
Most massage techniques are traditionally performed with the client unclothed, but that option it is entirely up to you. In other words, undergarment can be left on or off, either way, you will be properly draped throughout the massage.
During the massage
Do your best to let yourself relax. Let me do all the work (If I need to move your arms, legs, etc).
It’s important for you to let me know if any of the massage techniques I use cause pain. The Goal is not to cause you pain, but there may be a certain level of discomfort and a “good ache” when i’m working on a problem area. It’s important to let me know of any discomfort or if anything is outside of your tollerance level during the massage, to make your massage more efective.
After the massage
You should expect to feel relaxed after your massage. If your goal was to address any specific pain issues, you may immediately feel releif from your massage, or it may take a day or two before you feel that relief. Soreness can happen after a massage,(Rare, but can happen). If you are ever too sore after a massage, please let me know, and I can make notes to adjust your next massage.
