What to expect from your massage

What happens during a massage?

First, you can expect to be briefly interviewed as to your particular needs and medical history.   Before, during, and after the massage, your privacy is strictly respected.  

Your therapist will leave the room while you undress and re-dress at the end of the session.

You will lie on a comfortable, padded massage table and covered with a fresh sheet.   Only the part of your body being massaged will be undraped.   Lotions and creams are used to nourish the skin.   Various modalities are used according to the needs you have for the session.

The room will be quiet and dimly lit, with soft music if you like.

Your therapist will be happy to answer any questions before, during and after your massage.

What to expect after your massage

After your massage you will feel a sense of well being and relaxation.   After deep tissue work, you might experience some mild soreness that will go away in a day or two.

Be sure to drink plenty of water following your session.   Hydration is important to your overall health.
