Where will my massage session take place?

Who will perform the massage?
Your session will be conducted by a trained professional who has received the proper education and is licensed by the State.
Must I be completely undressed?

Will the massage therapist be present when I disrobe?

What parts of my body will be massaged?
You and your therapist will discuss the desired outcome of your session. This will determine which parts of your body require massage. A typical full-body session will include work on your back, arms, legs, feet, hands, head, neck and shoulders. You will not be touched on or near your genitals (males or females) or breasts (females).
Will I be covered during the session?

Will lubricant be used?

What will the massage feel like?
It depends on the technique used in the type of therapy session chosen. Your session may start with broad, flowing strokes that will help to calm your nervous system and relax muscle tension. As your body relaxes, the pressure will gradually be increased to relax specific areas and relieve areas of muscle tension. If you feel any discomfort, let your massage therapist know immediately, so that another technique can be used. You receive the greatest benefit from massage when your body is not resisting.
How long is the session?
The average session lasts about one hour. There are options of 90 minute or 30 minute sessions available as well. Always arrange time for relaxing before and after the session.
What should I do during the massage session?

What are the benefits of massage?

Are there any medical conditions that would make massage inadvisable?
