What to expect as a new client?

Whether massage is a new thing for you or it’s been a while since you’ve had one, or even if you’re a first-time client, making you feel comfortable is my first priority. To give me more information on how best I can help you, you will need complete a brief client intake form prior to your first session. The form, along with your appointment confirmation, will be emailed to you after you have booked an appointment. Booking an appointment can either be done online or via email or phone. You may fill-in the client intake form online, or you may print it out and complete it manually (please arrive 10-15 minutes early to do so).

Once you arrive on the day of your appointment, I’ll walk you through the process, and go over any questions that you may have for me. I may also ask you additional questions to make your session worthwhile. I’ll then step outside the room and give you time to get comfortable and relaxed under the cloth cover and blanket on the massage table.

Most massage techniques are usually done while a client is unclothed, but that option is entirely upon your discretion. In other words, undergarments can be left on or off. Either way, you will be properly covered throughout the massage.

During the massage

Do your best to relax, you deserve it. Allow me to do all the work, including moving your arms, legs, head, etc. Bolsters, pillows, table warmer, etc are available for added comfort.

It’s important for you to let me know if any of the massage techniques I use causes any pain. The goal is to not 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 also important to let me know if anything is outside your tolerance level during the massage. Letting me know these things will make your massage more effective.

After the massage

After your massage, you should expect to feel relaxed. If your goal was to address any specific pain issues, you may immediately feel relief, or it may also take a day or two before you feel relieved. Although it rarely occurs, soreness can happen after a massage. If you are ever too sore after a massage, kindly let me know so that I can make notes and make the proper adjustments on your next massage appointment.
