What to expect
Your massage therapist will take you back to the treatment 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 and the pressure you'd like.
After your conversation, your 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 partially dressed or fully bare. During the session, any areas of the body not being directly addressed will be draped appropriately (NYS law). Please communicate with your massage therapist if you need a change in pressure.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does getting a massage hurt?
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/ice based on LMT recommendation.
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.
