FAQS

A full-body massage session lasts approximately fifty-five minutes (this includes the time for you to dress and undress). Many people prefer an 80 minute session for optimal relaxation.
Many clients are unsure if and/or how much they should tip their massage therapist. We recommend you think of your massage therapist as you would a waiter in a restaurant. They love what they do and your tip should reflect your appreciation for their service. Tipping percentages should be based on the full price of a regular massage.

Remember, our therapists have a very physical job.
The answer to this question depends on your reasons for receiving a massage. For those who use massage as preventative care or to manage daily stress, one massage a month is common. Weekly sessions may be necessary if you are receiving massage for injury relief or to relieve chronic tightness that is interfering with your daily life. If this is the case, weekly sessions are essential in order to build on each week’s improvements in healing until the desired results have been achieved.

For most people, the frequency of massage visits depends on how well it fits into a budget. For this reason, we have several membership options to make it easy for you to afford the benefits of massage on a regular basis.

You should undress to your desired level of comfort. About half of our clients prefer to be completely undressed, while the other half prefer to keep their undergarments on.
A license means that a massage therapist has met the requirements and paid the fee to legally practice massage in your city, county and/or state. To obtain a license, a massage therapist will usually have to complete a minimum number of training hours at an accredited or accepted school or training center.
You and the massage therapist will discuss the desired outcome of your session. This will determine which parts of your body require massage. A typical full body session will include work on your back, abdomen, gluts, arms, legs, feet, hands, head, neck, and shoulders. You will not be touched on or near your genitals (male or female) or breasts (female).
Prior to your massage experience your therapist will escort you from the lobby to your own private therapeutic massage room. Our massage rooms have dim lighting and soft soothing music playing in the background, which helps you to relax. Your therapist will then leave you to undress to your desired level of comfort and relax onto the massage table.

During your massage:

There will be fresh blankets and sheets provided on the table. You will remain properly draped during the entire session to keep you warm and comfortable. Often, a light lotion or oil will be applied to allow your muscles to be massaged without causing excessive friction to the skin. When your massage is complete, your therapist will leave the room and allow you some time to get dressed. Your therapist will then provide you with water and make a professional recommendation for your return visit.

After your massage:

After your massage, you will feel relaxed and you may feel relief from your former long-term aches and pains. For the first 24 hours after a deep tissue massage, you may feel a little sore or achy – this is a normal response due to toxins being released from your soft tissue. We recommend that you drink plenty of water following any massage. After that time, you will feel increased energy, heightened awareness and greater productivity.
