What to Expect During Your First Visit


  • Please arrive 10-15 minutes early for your first session, your therapist will ask you to fill out a medical history form and consent for treatment. It is necessary to know what medical conditions you have, and medications you are taking, as some conditions and/or medications require modifications in massage procedure.
  • The form is confidential and all client record-keeping is HIPAA compliant. We take your privacy seriously.
  • After your therapist reviews your medical history form and asks pertinent questions, he/she will work with you to come up with a treatment plan that covers your goals and preferences for the massage, as well as long range wellness goals. During this process, your therapist may palpate problem area(s) and ask you to move in a certain way (i.e. "Please raise your arm above your head, if you can...") in order to ascertain specific muscles involved, if appropriate.
  • Your therapist will then leave the room to allow you to undress and get under the covers of the massage table.
  • We respect your modesty; you may undress to their level of comfort. We follow standard draping procedures, and will at no time expose genital areas. Only the body part being worked on will be undraped.
  • During the massage, soothing music may be played, mild aromatherapy, a massage table warmer, and/or warm moist towels may be used to add to your comfort and relaxation.
  • Your therapist will inquire about the pressure he/she is using. While sometimes people feel that extreme pressure is needed to effectively relax tight muscles (" No pain, no gain"); research shows that while very deep pressure might 'hurt good' to the client, it can actually perpetuate or worsen the problem. We will respect a request for deeper pressure, and work with you to ensure a good outcome.
  • Lubricants will be used to facilitate massage strokes. We use additive and fragrance-free organic fractionated coconut oil, but have other choices available if you are sensitive to coconut oil. We will not use oil on your face and/or scalp, if you are concerned - we respect hairdo's and makeup!
  • Analgesic liniments may be used on tight or sore muscles. Heat or cold packs may also be used, as appropriate, with your consent.
  • After your massage, your therapist will leave the room and allow you to take your time getting up and dressed.
  • Then your therapist will review the session with you briefly, and offer suggestions to enhance your treatment and extend its benefits, such as drinking plenty of water and doing regular (specific) stretching exercises.
