What We Want to Know
Get comfortable and let the therapist know if you’re not. Tell your therapist if you find the music distracting, if your cold, want to be covered, don't want an area of your body touched, or are experiencing any discomfort.
Let your therapist know if:
• You can’t seem to relax your muscles, they may need to adjust their massage technique
• You’re allergic to any oils or lotions
• You’re going out afterwards and can’t mess up your hair and makeup
• If you’re having a hot stone therapy, that you’re comfortable with the temperature of stones.
• You've had any major surgeries or injuries
• You don't like something or something just does not feel right.
Requests when Scheduling
We are trained to help your body, but we can’t mind read. Please tell reception if you have any preference of therapist, pressure or massage type when you book your appointment This will help ensure you are matched with someone who will be able to best work with your needs, for example relaxation vs. deep tissue injury work.
Speak-up and Communicate
If may seem out of place to tell your massage therapist to do “more of this” or “less of that” but that's okay to do, if you would like. During the massage, you should tell your therapist if something is uncomfortable, the pressure is not right, you want more time spent on a specific area or ask about specific techniques.
