Frequently asked questions

Q; WHAT SHOULD I DO TO PREPARE FOR MY SESSION?


A; We recommend freshening up prior to you session, to make your session more enjoyable. If coming from physical activity all sweaty, showering prior to session is highly recommended. For ladies, makeup is not recommended as it will smudge on the face cover during the massage. This is a judgement-free, safe space for being your natural you; the wigs can come off to avoid obstruction, and the temporary hair dyes that easily rub off from simple touch is not recommended as it can stain the massage equipment and the practitioner's clothing, should any of it come into contact. Plus, leaving those things behind allow for better relaxation.




Q; THIS IS MY FIRST MASSAGE WITH YOU, WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?


A; After finding an ideal space in you home to setup the table for your session, we will be asking a little bit about you and how you would like to feel after your session as well as ask you of any injuries or medical conditions you might have that we should be aware of that may affect our session together and of the areas you would like addressed and focused on. Then, we will direct you on how you should lay on the table and step away to give you privacy as you undress to get on the table between the covers.




Q; HOW MUCH SPACE IS REQUIRED WHEN THE THERAPIST COMES TO VISIT?


A; An ideal space for table service: 140 inches x 75 inches (11.5 ft. by 6.5ft approximately) this give us room not just for the table but also for us to move around it and work effectively on our clients.




Q; WHAT HAPPENS IF I’M RUNNING LATE IN STARTING MY SERVICE?


A; Depending on the situation, your time may be shortened in order to be consistent with our next appointments. If we are more than 30 minutes late to you, your service gets an additional 30 minutes added that day if time permits and there are no other appointments following yours, or gets added for a future appointment date free of charge.

Q: HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET A MASSAGE?


A; Everyone is different and it really is up to how your body feels, what your budget is and what your time will allow for you. But typically if you don’t find yourself feeling too sore often once every month or every few months is fine. If you have medical condition or chronic physical conditions that require more attention, we can recommend a schedule for you. It is all on a case-by-case basis. If you just simply enjoy massages, you can do it as often as you want, daily, weekly or monthly; it’s whatever feels great for your body.




Q; WHEN IS IT UNSAFE TO DO A MASSAGE?


A; When intoxicated from strong drugs, medications, or alcohol, it is not recommended to do massage as the massage will circulate them further throughout the body causing you increased intoxication. That, and also impaired judgement and difficulty communicating with your provider about pain or soreness as that may be compromised.




Q; DO I HAVE TO BE COMPLETELY NUDE DURING THE MASSAGE?


A; We ask that you undress to you level of comfort (down to underwear without bra), however, to enhance your experience, being completely nude under the covers is recommended. We will be very professional about only exposing the areas of your body we are working on as we are working on them, that way you won’t be unnecessarily exposed.




Q; WHAT KIND OF MUSIC WILL BE PLAYED DURING THE MASSAGE?


A; Typically soft spa music is played, however this is your session. Therefore, it is whatever you are in the mood for. We usually use Spotify or similar music browsers to allow for any genre of music desired by our clients.




Q; HOW SHOULD I DRESS WHEN RECEIVING MINI MASSAGES AT EVENTS?


A; Generally, when receiving massages at group events, its recommended to wear loose comfortable clothing, or stretchable clothing for an enhanced experience.




Q; I AM A MUSCULAR PERSON AND LIKE TO KEEP MY SHAPE FIRM. IS DOING MASSAGE GOING TO TURN MY MUSCLES TO MUSH?


A; No that is a myth. If anything, massage is going to enhance your ability to perform better as it will render your muscles more supple and increase your range of motion.
