Massage FAQs

Is massage therapy safe? 

A brief interview before the session will ensure that there are no health related safety concerns and that the session is properly tailored for the individual client.  During your therapy, your therapist will adjust his/her pressure according to your personal preference and tolerance.


Will I have to disrobe?

For chair massage, you will remain fully clothed and seated comfortably on a chair designed specifically for massage. 


Most table therapies are better performed directly on the skin.  Only the area being treated is uncovered while the rest of the body is covered or "draped" with a sheet to protect the client's modesty at all times.  You will have complete privacy while disrobing and client comfort is always the priority.  You should never disrobe beyond your personal comfort level.  Many sports massage sessions can be performed while the athlete is in practice attire, perfect for the team locker room.


What products will be used on my skin?

Chair massage is most often performed over the clothing, without lubricant.


Most massage performed on a massage table will include the use of oils or lotions to prevent friction during therapy.  Be sure to inform your therapist of any allergies you may have to avoid adverse reactions. 



when was your last massage?
