Most Frequent Questions and Answers

A typical spa massage is focused on relaxation, and maybe relieving some pain by working out any knots you have. It has a place for sure and feels good short-term, but can actually be damaging if it’s done too much because muscles that are already lengthened are being loosened even more. Therapists usually use Swedish, deep tissue, and other flowy-relaxing type techniques.

A medical massage is focused on correcting and healing problem areas long-term. We do some of that massage work that feels good at the time, but work more on the muscles that have been shortened. Medical massage isn’t one single style or technique. Instead, it involves the use of any modality that will get that end result of healing/correcting most effectively, including manual therapy, trigger point, orthopedic, lymphatic, structural, myofascial, PNF stretching, positional release, deep tissue, etc.

Because we work on fixing the issue instead of only relaxing and relieving pain short-term, our clients generally have results that last much longer, even weeks-months.

When you schedule your first appointment, you will be sent a short intake and consent form to sign electronically. Having these signed beforehand helps us to get you started at your scheduled time.

Your first appointment will include an extra 15 minutes for a posture assessment/consultation. This gives the therapist a chance to get to know you, your specific problem spots, and talk to you in more detail to find out what you would like to accomplish with your massage treatments. 

At your massage, there is a waiting area with seating by the front desk that you can sit in while you wait for the therapist to come get you. After meeting your therapist, you will then be left alone in the massage room to get comfortable on the massage table. When you are ready, the therapist will enter the room and begin your massage. You may choose to hold a conversation or rest in silence during the massage. Also remember, it is helpful to communicate if there is anything you’d like to have adjusted (temperature, pressure, music, etc) for you to have the best experience. After the massage is complete, you will be offered a drink of water and left again to have some privacy. You will have plenty of time to change and get ready to go after your full massage time. (We won’t be rushing you out the door.)

When you are ready to leave, the therapist will help you through checkout in the massage room and may make a suggestion for when you will want to come in next to get the best results.

 

We use an organic, hypoallergenic massage lotion in our clinic. It is the highest quality available, as we want you to have the best experience. 

Complimentary aroma-therapy is also included with all massages, unless you prefer unscented lotion. These may contain allergens – you may view the ingredient lists for each option here.

You may undress to your level of comfort. Many people prefer to keep their underwear on during a massage, while others choose to be nude. The therapist will leave the room so you can undress and lie on the massage table under a top sheet and blanket. Regardless if you choose to maintain some clothing or not, we will ensure that you are always properly covered.

Individual preference varies, for most people it depends on your pain, physical and emotional needs. Receiving a massage regularly has the most benefit; this can be weekly, monthly, or just as often as you feel you would like. 

Some therapists limit massaging the same person  to 90 minutes once a week. There is no reason to have such limits though. There are even many celebrities that hire personal massage therapists and get multiple massages a day with no negative impacts. 

You know your body and what it needs best. However often you would like to and are able to is what is right for you.

In general, no.  If the pressure is too intense, speak up immediately so I can adjust.  Certain techniques may result in soreness during the days following a massage, similar to that of a great workout, or a “good hurt” as a large knot is being released. However, there should not be any sharp or very intense pain.

24 hours notice is required to cancel or reschedule an appointment.

If a cancellation is made with less than 24 hours notice, your appointment will result in a charge of 50% of the scheduled fee. 

A missed appointment with no notice will be charged the full price for that appointment.
