Will the practitioner be present when I undress?
The practitioner will leave the room while you undress, relax onto the table, and cover yourself with a clean sheet and blanket.
Will I be covered during the session?
You will be properly draped at all times to keep you warm and comfortable. Only the area being worked on will be exposed.
What should I do during a massage session?
Make yourself comfortable. The practitioner will either gently move you or tell you what is needed throughout the session (such as lifting your arm). Many people just close their eyes and completely relax. Others like to talk during their session. Feel free to ask the practitioner questions about massage and bodywork in general or about the particular technique you are receiving.
What type of massage do you do?
We specialise is tailoring the massage to suit your needs. We employ a variety of proven techniques from trigger point therapy, moyofascial release, deep tissue, sports, relaxation (Swedish) massage with or without essesntial oils. Our staff have more than 2000 hours of specific relevent training and engage in regular skills update training.
Will it hurt?
We will not ask you to tolerate any discomfort other than that necessary for effective assessment and treatment. Deep tissue for many, sadly, means bruising painful massage, often leaving the person distressed with another layer of pain. You should always feel comfortable about the work you receive – it is afterall your body – your health that is being tended to.
