What To Expect From Your Massage Treatment
If you are a first time client, we need to know more about you, so you need to complete our INTAKE FORM which will arrive in your e-mail. It's a five minute process and it’s necessary for us to understand any medical issues. Massage is very invasive and any physical malady may cause contraindications that could be detrimental to your health. The Therapist will then review your information before we begin treatment. This helps us determine how to fine tune your particular treatment.
TRY AN ENHANCEMENT (50% OFF)
As a first time client, we want you to experience all we have to offer, so you can pick as any of our enhancements as you want at 50% off on your first visit. These are great treatments, like Hot Stones, Dynamic Cupping, CBD Treatments, Biofreeze, and more.
After your intake and interview, you’re ready to RELAX. Please wear loose comfortable clothing (t-shirt, tank top, shorts, athletic paints).
When the Therapist returns, he or she is clear what type of treatment to deliver and how to modify it to meet your needs. Throughout the treatment you will be asked about pressure etc. to make sure we are not too deep or too light. Some pain is good with certain types of therapy but always let us know what you are feeling.
After your treatment is complete, the therapist will meet you in the reception area and show you some after-treatment exercises or suggest using any products that you can use on your own. Self treatment is a good way to maintain the benefits of our type of massage. After each session, the Therapist will make notes in your intake record. We use these to track your progress and also if you wish to contact your insurance carrier, we can supply them this information for reimbursement.

How Often Should I Come For A Massage?
In a perfect world, you should get a massage every week. However, if time does not allow, plan a massage once a month. If you are experiencing pain, for example; in your shoulder, lower back or hamstring, you may want to get a few until you gain better mobility in those areas.
Your massage therapist will recommend when you should return for your next session. If you've received enough pain relief from several massage sessions and you feel you are functioning at your best, schedule your follow-up massage appointment next month.
Let’s say you have chronic pain underneath your shoulder blade. You may need three over the course 10 days until the pain is under control. View massage as a maintenance tactic in managing your health and stress levels.
