Frequently Asked Questions
What to expect on your first visit
If this is your first time coming to me, please arrive 10 minutes early. This time is requested because you will need to fill out an intake form. This form will inquire about the reason for the visit today and about any medical condition you may have or have had in the past. Treatment goals and what you are expecting will be established at this time.
Will I be covered during the massage?
After discussing the intake form, you will be asked to undress to your level of comfort. While receiving your massage, you will always be covered by a sheet and a blanket. The only part of your body that will be exposed is the body part that is being worked on. Unless receiving a massage for a specific area, a full massage includes the head, face, neck, back, arms, legs, feet and buttocks. Abdominal massage are available as well, if you request one before the start of the session.
What do I do during the massage session?
The only thing you need to do during the massage session is to relax, breath and enjoy the experience. If you feel you want the therapist to work deeper or lighter, please communicate that as well. But generally, you don’t need to do anything, unless the therapist requires you to participate in assisted stretching.
How often should I get a massage?
Most people come for massage every 2-3 weeks or at least once a month. If you have an injury or a chronic issue, more frequent visits may be suggested in the beginning and then re-evaluated after a time.
Do you take insurance?
I do not take insurance, but I am happy to provide a receipt that you can send to your insurance carrier.
