Before a Massage
If your hair is long, you may want to pin it up.
You should undress to your level of comfort. Most Massage and Bodywork Techniques are traditionally performed with the client unclothed. You will be properly draped during the entire session.
The practitioner will leave the room while you undress, relax onto the table and cover yourself with a clean sheet.
What parts of my body will be massaged?
Upon completion of intake form, you and the therapist will discuss which parts of your body need/require a massage. A typical full body massage session will include work on your back, arms, legs, feet, hands neck, shoulders and face. No oil is used on the face.
During a massage
A light oil or lotion is used to allow your muscles to be massaged without causing extreme friction to the skin. All lotions and oils are hyper allergenic. If you have a reaction to peanut oil it is imperative and up to you to tell therapist before the massage session begins. The oil will also help hydrate your skin. If any technique performed is uncomfortable to you, for any reason, let the therapist know immediately. Communication is essential!
The full-body massage or bodywork session usually lasts one hour, unless it's a specialty massage. A specialty massage would include A LaStone Therapy Massage, A Lomi Lomi Massage or a Chardonnay Massage. A half-hour appointment only allows time for a partial massage session, such as neck and shoulders, back or legs and feet. Many people prefer a 60-90 minute session for optimal relaxation.
Draping: The part of the body being worked on is the only part that will be undraped. No massages will be given without proper draping.
After a Massage
Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience freedom from long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness and greater productivity which can last for days. Since toxins are released from your soft tissue during a massage, it is recommended you drink plenty of water following the session. It is also recommended that you take the time for your body to relax and not put yourself back into the same setting it was in before you entered the Massage room.
