If you are new to massage
When you arrive for your session the massage therapist will first go over why you are there and what are your expectations/goals from the massage.
During most full-body massages, you will be undressed. If you are not comfortable being fully undressed, your therapist can work through clothes, or you can undress to your comfort level. Your massage therapist will ask you to undress for your massage while they wait outside.
You will be asked to lie on the table, either face up or face down, getting under the sheet and blanket. The massage therapist will reenter the room once you are comfortable on the table. The therapist will pull back and adjust the sheet/blanket as they work their way around. Any areas they are not working on at the time will be covered.
Your massage therapist will use oil or lotion to allow for smooth, long stokes. The therapist will ask if the pressure is acceptable. It is important to communicate with the therapist if you require less/more pressure. It is not necessary to talk throughout the entire massage. Some clients enjoy chatting while receiving their massage, and others want to simply relax quietly with minimal communication.
Once the massage is over, the therapist will again leave the room so you can get dressed. After you are dressed they will ask how your session was, take payment, and book your next session.
