First Massage?
Before the massage:
  • Fill out the intake form.  This is a brief summary of your contact information, health history, and consent to the massage.
  • Tell me about your health and about anything happening with your body that massage may help (ex: stiff neck or lower back pain).
  • Your massage will be performed in a private room to maximize relaxation and comfort.
  • You will be asked to undress to whatever degree you are comfortable.
  • You will be completely draped with a sheet during your entire session.  Only one part of your body will be massaged at a time, and only that part will be uncovered.
  • I will leave the room while you undress. That will give you a few minutes to get comfortable on the table under the sheet.
  • If you prefer that a part of your body not be touched (ex: feet) please say so.
  • I am aware that many clients experience some initial degree of shyness, nervousness or anxiety over doing something new for the first time.  Because of this, I strive to make sure your experience is calm, relaxing and peaceful.  Now that you know what to expect, just relax and enjoy your massage.
During the massage:
  • If the pressure is too light or too hard, ask to have the pressure changed.  Some massage techniques are only light but asking is appropriate.
  • If you are uncomfortable for any reason, please say something and the massage will stop.
  • Tell me where you hurt.  This way the massage can focus on where you need it most.
  • Often breathing deeply can help you get the most out of a massage.
At the end of the massage:
  • I will do a hold (at the top of your head or feet) that lets you know that your session is complete.
  • I will then leave the room so you can get dressed.
  • At this time don’t move too quickly; take your time and get dressed at a relaxed pace.
After the massage:
  • Drink lots of water.  That helps the body remove toxins that were release during the massage.
  • Plan to take the first 30 minutes after your massage lightly; allow the massage to settle your body.
Sanitation and Hygiene:
  • All equipment and linen that come in contact with the client will be cleansed in an approved method.
  • All lubricants will be dispensed in a contamination-free manner.
  • My hands and forearms will be washed with hot soapy water before and after each session.
