What can I expect when I go for a massage appointment?
On your first visit you will complete a confidential health history form. Your
therapist will go over your health history form with you to determine your
treatment needs and goals.
Must I undress for my massage?
Massage therapists are required to cover/drape you with a sheet so that they
expose only the area which they are working on. You may need to undress
for therapy. However, you do not need to expose yourself in any way that
you are uncomfortable.
What if I am uncomfortable with my body?
It is possible to work on a client who is dressed. So just let your
therapist know your comfort level.
Does the gender of the massage therapist make a difference?
This is an issue of personal preference.
I bruise easily, can I still get a massage?
It is important to let your massage therapist know (this should
be asked on the health history form you will asked to fill out
on your first visit). Massage therapy is not recommended for
people who suffer from hemophilia.
Am I expected to talk during the massage?
If you wish to have silence, you should say so at the beginning of the
treatment. The therapist may, however, require verbal information
pertinent to health findings during the treatment.
After my appointment, is there anything I need to have on hand or
anything specific I should do?
An epsom salt bath is recommended to soothe and to calm muscles, and
enhance the benefits of the massage. It will help to alleviate
stiffness you may feel the next day, and it is also recommended
for use after workouts for the same reason. Most importantly,
drink plenty of water to keep your tissues hydrated.
