Frequently Asked Questions 

Do I have to be completely undressed? 

You should undress to the level you are comfortable. For a full body massage, most get completely undressed. However, if you will be more comfortable during the session if you leave your underwear on, that's fine

 

Do I have to cover myself with a sheet or towel?

This is known as draping and yes, it is the law in Wisconsin. Once you are undressed and on the table under the drape, the therapist will only uncover the part of your body being worked on.

 

What do I do during a massage?

Make yourself comfortable. If your therapist wants you to adjust your position, we will either move you or will ask you to move what is needed. Otherwise, change your position anytime to make yourself more comfortable.
Many people close their eyes and relax completely during a session; others prefer to talk. It's up to you. It is your massage, and whatever feels natural to you is the best way to relax. Do not hesitate to ask questions at any time.

Will the massage hurt?

This depends on the type of massage and the depth of the strokes. A light, relaxing massage that doesn't probe very deep into the muscles, shouldn't hurt. With that being said, there is a 'feels good' hurt and an 'ouch, stop it' hurt. A good massage, even a really deep tissue massage, should always stay in the 'feels good' hurt range.
Pain can be an indication that the muscle is possibly injured or inflamed and pressure should be adjusted. Also, pain can cause you to tighten up and negate the relaxing effects of the massage. The most effective and deepest massage always works with your body's natural response, not against it.

How will I feel after my massage?

Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience a significant decrease or freedom from long-term aches and pains. Many feel a little slowed down for a short period and then notice an increase of energy, heightened awareness and increased productivity which can last for days.
If you received a deep tissue or sports massage, you may be slightly sore the next day - much like a good workout at the gym. Sometimes a hot shower, or a soak in the tub can ease this soreness.
After your session you should increase your water intake a bit. Just a glass or two more than normal is usually fine. This helps keep your body's tissues hydrated and healthy.

 

This is YOUR session. Speak up!

Why is this so important?

If you want anything changed: pressure, areas worked, position or if you are too hot or too cold ... speak up!

You will not hurt the therapist's feelings by asking for something that will make you more comfortable. Your therapist wants this to be the best experience for you to relax and enjoy

What should I expect during my first massage therapy visit?

During your first session the therapist will have you fill out a medical history form, sign a client agreement and talk to you about what brings you in for that day. We will answer any questions you have.
