These are common questions asked before, during, or after services. If you do not see your question, please feel free to contact me, and I will help answer your questions as quickly and professionally as possible.
What service should I get?
What service should I get?
With so many options for massage therapy care, it’s hard to know what exactly you need to book for and how much time to get the proper care. When in doubt, contact the therapist you are trying to book with and talk with them about your concerns. You should both be able to agree on the proper course of treatment. A good rule of thumb for timing is:
30 Minutes - Detailed Small Area ( i.e. Neck or Feet)
60 Minutes - Either Half the Body in Detail or Full, Overall Massage
90 Minutes - Detailed Work in Specified Area With Great Overall Massage
120 Minutes - Full-Detail Body Massage
Q. What Should I Wear to the Massage?
A. Wear whatever you are comfortable with, but do try to keep it simple because you will need to undress for services.
Q. Should I Get a Massage While I Am Sick?
A. No. Massage may make you feel better. But if you feel like you are getting sick or are sick, it’s best to just stay home and rest.
Q. What Should I Wear During the Massage?
A. Generally, you will undress to your level of comfort. Most people tend to leave their underwear on, while some do not.
Q. Should I Shave Beforehand?
A. We work on all types of body, and body hair does not offend us. If you are going in for specific modalities like cupping therapy, we tend to ask you to don't shave for 24 hours before or after service. Talk with your therapist before trying new modalities about shaving.
Q. Should I Shower Prior to Coming In?
A. Yes. If you have an appointment after work, try to shower that morning before coming in or after a workout before an appointment.
Q. What If I Don't Like the Music That's Playing?
A. Most therapists will have a selection you can choose from. So if a whale calls and waterfalls aren't your thing, just let them know.
Q. How Do I Know What Pressure I Like or Need?
A. Pressure will vary for certain areas of the body. If you are holding your breath or grabbing on to the table, the pressure maybe too much and should ask the therapist to ease up. If you can’t feel the pressure or it’s more of a tickling sensation, you should ask for more pressure. Remember, a therapist will only know to adjust when you speak up and tell us.
Q. What If I Feel Like My Therapist Didn’t Work Enough on a Certain Area?
A. Speak up. If you feel like your shoulders or hips need more work during the service, please inform your therapist, and ask for more work in that area. Your timing may be adjusted and may not get a full massage, but your area of concern will be handled to make sure that you get the full benefit of your paid time.
Q. Should I Talk to My Therapist While They Work?
A. Everybody is different. Some like to chat the entire session time, while others may like to talk for a bit, and then, enjoy the silence. Others sing or listen to podcast. Whichever you choose, your therapist will still be able to work efficiently.
Side Note: Topics that should be avoided by both client and therapist are politics, religion, and gossip of other clients and/or therapists.
Q. Now That I’ve Had a Massage, How Much Water Do I Need to Drink?
A. On a daily average, you should drink half your body weight in water. You do not need to increase before or after services. Just keep up with the daily amount, and you'll be okay.
Q. How Often Should I Return?
A. It depends on your goals how often you should return.
Q. When Is the Best Time to Rebook?
A. The best time to rebook is right after your service. If you’re planning on making it a routine in your health lifestyle, it’s best to go ahead and book a few sessions to make sure that you have your spot available. Some therapists book up rather quickly!
Q. Do I Have to Tip?
A. No. You never have to tip. We are grateful that you would like to give us a tip for our services. But honestly, we would rather prefer that you rebook, review, or refer us to your family, friends, and coworkers.
