About your massage
Here’s everything you need to know about your massage.
If this is your first session with me, we’ll start with a 10-15 minute consultation to discuss your lifestyle and medical history. This way I can create the best massage plan for you. This is a great time for you to ask any questions you may have about your treatment. Your consultation is not included in your massage time, and all information you give is confidential.
After your consultation I’ll leave the room for you to get ready. Please remove jewellery and as many clothes as you feel comfortable with, and position yourself on the massage couch (usually face down to start). Cover yourself with the towels provided.
When I return to the room, please feel free to ask for a blanket, cushions or ankle support. I may play music, but be sure to let me know if you’d prefer a different type of music or silence.
A typical session lasts one hour and includes your back, arms, legs, feet, hands, head, neck and shoulders. I will use massage wax or oil.
During your massage, I’ll check that you’re happy with the pressure, but please let me know if you’d like the pressure adjusted at any time. The more feedback you provide, the better I can adapt the massage to suit you.
You’ll be covered by a towel throughout your treatment – only the area being worked on will be exposed. You may be asked to turn over part way through, but towels will be kept low and your privacy respected.
When our time is up I will let you know that the treatment is over and I’ll leave the room so you can get dressed. Please take your time and get up slowly.
Afterwards you’ll have the opportunity to provide feedback which I’ll use to inform our next session. I may also offer you some home care advice on how to stay fit and relaxed. It’s important to keep yourself well hydrated after your massage.
I’ll take your payment at the end of the session, please note that I currently only accept cash.
