While most techniques are usually performed unclothed, it is entirely up to you! I can work with whatever is most comfortable for you. You will remain draped with a cloth during the entire session, and we will only uncover the area we are working on. You may ask us to stop working on any area at any time. We will respect your request.

Only the parts you tell us to massage! Before the massage begins you will have had a thorough discussion with your therapist about what you want to accomplish and what you are comfortable with. Typically a full body massage includes neck, shoulders, back, arms and hands, legs and feet, glutes, and sometimes face, scalp, and abdomen.
Relax! Seriously, we’ll do all the work. Just make sure to let us know if you’re uncomfortable or in pain, if you need more/less pressure, a blanket, or anything else to make your more comfortable. Feel free to ask your practitioner about techniques they will be using and be sure to communicate with them as they go. If we need you to do anything, we’ll gently let you know what to do. Otherwise lay back and enjoy!
Drink lots of water! and Rest! It is usually best to avoid heavily strenuous activity right after a massage, and the next day if possible. Make the most of your massage and make some extra time for yourself in the hours after the massage! Enjoy a light meal, take a bath, relax in your favorite spot! The only exception would be if you’re getting sports massage during a sporting event

Making sure that massage will help and not harm you is an important reason for this. Be sure to let your therapist know of any medical conditions and treatments you are currently undergoing. If you are undergoing treatment you should get a doctors recommendation for massage therapy. In some cases, depending on the condition, a doctors recommendation may be required.
