Receiving a Massage
- If you are receiving a massage for the first time, you will need to complete a medical health profile.
- Your massage will be given in a room with a relaxing atmosphere with soft lighting and soothing music.
- You will privately robe and disrobe in the room.
- During the massage, draping will be used at all times to protect your privacy. If you are uncomfortable removing your clothes, I will work within your comfort zone. After all, what is important is that you are able to relax and enjoy your massage.
- Remove your jewelry, glasses and contact lenses, if applicable.
- Close your eyes and let your body sink into the table. Closing your eyes decreases distractions and heightens the experience. It is best to not talk during a massage in order to receive the most relaxing benefits from it.
- How you breathe during a massage is important. Breathe naturally, taking occasional deep breaths.
- Some people feel emotional during a massage. If this happens to you, feel free to express these emotions without embarrassment.
- There is no sexual intent in a massage. Requests of an inappropriate nature will result in immediate cessation of your treatment and refusal of future services.
- This is your massage. Feel free to give feedback.
