If you haven’t had much experience with massage therapy, you might be wondering what to expect during a typical massage session.
The massage table is padded, and may have extra attachments or cushions, such as a face rest, which allows you to lie facedown without turning your head or neck.
Expect a peaceful and comfortable environment for the massage. The massage therapist may play music during the massage. Some people enjoy the music, and some don’t. If you prefer silence or different music, ask the massage therapist to turn off or change the music.
The massage technique or modality used will depend on what the massage therapist determines is best for your massage.
The massage therapist will allow you to slowly get up and get dressed in privacy. Usually your massage therapist will offer you water after you’re dressed.
Chair massages, which often are offered in public spaces and workplaces, are an exception to the above descriptions. A specially-designed massage chair lets you lean forward a supports the front of the body. This allows the massage therapist to massage most areas to be massaged. You remain clothed and no oil or lotion is used. Seated massages typically last from 10 to 30 minutes.
Please note that we maintain a 24 hour cancellation policy. You will be expected to pay for your session if you are unable to give a full day's notice.
