Your Massage Session


Meet Your Massage Therapist
At your first appointment with us, we’ll ask you to fill out a Massage Health Intake form. Please arrive 10 to 15 minutes before your appointment to complete the form. We ask you to list any health conditions, injuries, medications and preferences. Please be detailed and honest, as we strive to provide an appropriate and tailored session for you. We’ll ask you about your goals for the session. This is also great time to ask any questions you may have.

* If we already have your form on file, please update us if any information changes.
* If you are pregnant, we ask that you fill out an additional form specific to pregnancy.

Your Session
After discussing your goals, your therapist will leave the room and you will undress to your comfort level. Traditionally, clients would completely disrobe, however you should undress to your level of comfort. You will be properly draped at all times. Discuss options with your therapist for any areas you may want work done, but would like to remain clothed. Please communicate with us about the pressure we are applying. We can tell if we are applying light to firm pressure, but we cannot translate that to how you are feeling, so whether more or less pressure is desired, we ask that you communicate that to us. We ask that you also communicate about preferences like the temperature of the bed, the music, position of supports or whether you like to converse during your session. When your session has concluded and your therapist has left the room, take your time getting up off the table.

Post Session
Your therapist may make recommendations as to when may be a good time to schedule another massage session. Depending on various factors, soreness may occur. To alleviate discomfort, apply ice and at your next session discuss whether pressure needs to be adjusted.

A physician referral is not needed to make an appointment. Sessions are not covered by insurance. Please be prepared to pay at the time of your appointment.
