FAQs

Below are answers to my clients’ frequently asked questions. If there is something I’ve missed, please don’t hesitate to ask for more information and get in touch. I look forward to meeting you soon.

Will I Be Naked During My Massage?

No matter what type of massage you are having, you’re in charge of how much you undress during your session. Speak to me before your massage and specify the areas of your body on which you want me to work—and which areas to avoid. I will only expose the parts of your body I am working on—never your breasts or genitals. If you feel uncomfortable with your massage, you can pause or stop it at any time. Before your treatment, I will give you a bath sheet to cover yourself. I will ensure you can undress privately and I will employ proper “draping” techniques during the session.

What will happen on my first visit?

During your first visit, I need to ask any relevant questions to ensure that we both have a clear picture of the discomfort you are experiencing and how I can help you. I will ask you to complete a consultation form so that I can tailor your treatment to your needs and to see if there are any contraindications for me to be aware of before I begin the massage. I will need to talk with you for a bit longer for an initial consultation at your first session, for your subsequent visits I can shorten the amount of time we talk before your treatment as I will already know your history.  Before we start, I will step out of the room to let you get changed in complete privacy.  Everything in my room has been wiped down between every client.  At the end of the treatment, I will again step out of the room to let you get dressed in privacy. For a 1 hour massage appointment you can expect 45- 50 minutes of massage work. 

When Should I Avoid Massage Therapy?

Massage isn’t for everyone and people with high blood pressure, deep-vein thrombosis, and certain skin conditions should check with a doctor before getting a massage. If you have a fever, feel dizzy, or have recently been in an accident, you should postpone your massage appointment until you feel better. You should not have a massage if you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol,  If I suspect that you are under the influence when you arrive for your appointment, your treatment will not go ahead

Is It Okay to Talk During a Massage Session?

You should always feel free to express any discomfort when undergoing a massage. However, avoid intense conversation during your treatment as this can lead to increased muscle tension and this will limit the effectiveness of your massage.
If you want a relaxing massage, talk as little as possible and let your mind and body enter a calm and meditative state. You can even practice some mindful breathing, which lowers muscular tension. You are always in control of your massage therapy session. Feel free to ask me pause your massage if you’re uncomfortable with any aspect of the treatment
