What to expect

The massage therapist will take you back to their room and have a brief conversation with you about your health history. Together, you will go over your intentions and goal for the session. At this time, please notify your massage therapist of any areas of complaint you may have. 

After your conversation, the massage therapist will step out of the room and allow you to undress to your comfort level and get situated on the massage table. Your level of dress is completely up to you whether it is fully dressed or fully bare. During the session, any areas of the body not being directly address will be draped appropriately (NYS law).

rEADY TO BOOK YOUR MASSAGE?

frequently asked questions

"Does getting a massage hurt?"

 

"Should I be quiet or talk during my massage?"

 

"Can I work out on the same day I get a massage?"

 

Some soreness after a massage session can occur, especially if you received deeper therapeutic work during your session. This is completely normal to experience and can be treated with rest, light stretching, water intake, pain relievers (topical or oral), and applied heat. 

If you feel yourself tightening up or feeling pain or discomfort for more than a moment, please tell your massage therapist so they can adjust the pressure. Likewise, communicating about any injuries can help minimize the risk of soreness during and after your massage.

 


 

 The purpose of massage is to have time to relax your mind and body. You are not obligated to maintain a conversation with your therapist. That being said, you are encouraged to communicate if you need something in order to be more comfortable. We are here to provide you with the best experience possible; knowing if you are too hot, too cold, in an awkward position, or need a moment to use the rest room is a key part of that.

 


 

Yes, but to get the most benefit from your massage, it is best to work out before. Your muscles will likely be tired from the exercise but warmed up for the massage. Working out immediately after could cause strain to your body or result in you being tired and accidentally causing injury. 

Assisted STRETCH

What is Assisted Stretch?


Assisted Stretch is stretching with the help of a trained professional. Assisted stretching allows your body to move in ways that it is not able to when stretching alone. Assisted stretching allows you to address targeted areas and ensures you are getting the correct range of motion for your body.

 

Benefits of Assisted Stretch include:

  • Stress reduction

  • Increased flexibility

  • Increased range of motion

  • Decreased pain

  • Decreased stiffness
