What should I expect during my first visit?
Whether this is your first time in our treatment room, or your first massage ever,
we suggest that you arrive a few minutes early to fill out a health history and talk
with your therapist. Your health history is confidential and we use the information
to determine what kind of massage is best for you. You and your therapist will decide
what muscles to address during your session.
Your therapist will leave the room while you disrobe, then you may make yourself comfortable
on the massage table. After your massage is over, the therapist will once again leave
the room while you dress and will knock before entering. Together you will review
your session and assess how you are feeling.

What should I wear to my appointment?
Wear what makes you feel comfortable. Our massage table has a set of sheets and a
blanket, and you will be covered throughout your session. Some clients prefer to wear
their underwear or completely disrobe, the choice is yours.
Can I talk during my session?
Some people find chatting to be relaxing, though you never need to feel obligated
to talk to your therapist. Many people prefer silence to focus on relaxing. Your therapist
will follow your lead.
What kinds of products do you use?
Our therapists provide their own products and you’ll need to ask your therapist specifically.
In general, the products are hypoallergenic and as natural as possible.
Can I work out after my massage?
Generally, we don’t suggest an intense workout on the same day that you receive a
