Massage Therapy Q & A
What is my first appointment like?
Your massage therapist will begin by asking some general health questions to determine if massage is appropriate for you. Your massage will take place on a table especially designed for stability and comfort. For a full body massage, most people undress completely, though you may choose to wear underwear. You are warmly draped at all times, except for the area being worked on. Light oil or lotion is usually used during the massage.
What do I do after the massage?
When the massage is finished, your massage therapist will leave the room while you dress. Massage can be profoundly relaxing, and affects all of your body's systems. Give yourself a moment before slowly getting up for the table.
How will I feel after my massage?
After a massage, most people feel very relaxed. Many experience freedom from aches and pains that have built up from months of tension or repetitive activity in their daily life. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience an increase in energy that can last for several days.
Will a massage tickle?
Ticklish people are often surprised that massage does not tickle. The touch in a massage is completely different from tickling. The intent is relaxation, the pressure gentle but firm. In addition, your massage therapist chooses strokes that gradually accustom you to the touch involved.
