Frequently asked questions

What Precautions are you taking due to COVID-19?


We have always taken great care to maintain a clean and healthy facility. Your health has always been our 1st priority. We keep an updated list of our safety and sanitation practices during this unprecedented time on our COVID page, so that you are always informed.




Where will my massage or bodywork session take place?


Your massage or bodywork session will take place in a warm, comfortable, quiet room. Soft music may be played to help you relax. You will lie on a table especially designed for your comfort.




Must I be completely undressed?


Most massage and bodywork techniques are traditionally performed with the client unclothed; however, it is entirely up to you what you want to wear. You should undress to your level of comfort. You will be properly draped during the entire session.




Will the LMT be present when I disrobe?


The LMT will leave the room while you undress, relax onto the table, and cover yourself with a clean sheet or towel.




Will I be covered during the session?


You will be properly draped at all times to keep you warm and comfortable. Only the area being worked on will be exposed.




What will the massage or bodywork feel like?


A relaxing Swedish massage is often a baseline for clients. In a general Swedish massage, your session may start with broad, flowing strokes that will help calm your nervous system and relax exterior muscle tension. As your body becomes relaxed, pressure will gradually be increased to relax specific areas and relieve areas of muscular tension. A deep tissue massage will have deeper pressure, but should not be painful. Always communicate with your therapist. Lotion or massage cream is used to allow your muscles to be massaged without causing excessive friction to the skin. This also helps hydrate your skin. You should communicate immediately if you feel any discomfort so that another approach may be taken. Massage and bodywork are most effective when your body is not resisting. Your therapist wants your session to be exactly what you would like, so don’t be afraid to speak up if the pressure is not what you would like or if something is uncomfortable.




Are there different kinds of massage and bodywork?


There are numerous types of massage and bodywork; various techniques utilize different strokes, posture and movement re-education, application of pressure to specific points, and more. We can discuss which methods may be most appropriate for you and tailor your massage session for what you need specifically on that particular day. Every session is different depending on the needs of each client, so always share your goal for the session with your therapist.




What should I do during the massage or bodywork session?


Prior to the massage, feel free to ask the practitioner any questions about the technique or the upcoming session. During the massage, make yourself comfortable. The practitioner will either gently move you or tell you what is needed throughout the session (such as lifting your arm). Many people just close their eyes and completely relax, communicating if/when they need more or less pressure, another blanket, or anything else relevant to the session. If you have any questions regarding the session or about the particular technique you are receiving, feel free to ask.




How will I feel after the massage or bodywork session?


Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience freedom from long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity which can last for days. Since toxins are released from your soft tissues during a massage, it is recommended you drink plenty of water following your massage.




What are the benefits of massage and bodywork?


Massage and bodywork can help release chronic muscular tension and pain, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce mental and physical fatigue and stress, promote faster healing of injured muscular tissue, improve posture, enhance exercise performance, and increase range of motion. Massage and bodywork is also known to promote better sleep, improve concentration, reduce anxiety and create an overall sense of well-being.
