What are the benefits of massage?
Massage bodywork enhances a deeper connection to the healing pathways inherent in the body’s tissues and organs in order to enhance wellness throughout. Massage reduces anxiety by decreasing the cortisol stress hormone. It boosts the immune system by facilitating increased blood and lymph circulation, thus aiding in the elimination of metabolic wastes, reducing inflammation, and supporting the body’s healing and recovery.
What should I expect in my first massage?
We suggest you arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment to fill out our brief intake form. Once you have been greeted by your therapist and escorted to your room, you will be asked certain questions to ensure that the session will fulfill your needs. You will be properly draped at all times to keep you warm and comfortable.
What do I wear during a massage?
Partial or full disrobing is recommended for your massage session. We create a very safe environment and give great attention to proper draping. Shiatsu, Acupressure, and Orthopedic massage sessions do not require disrobing. Feel free to speak with your therapist if you have any questions or concerns.
How much should I tip?
Tipping is encouraged to let your therapist know how much you appreciate the session. We recommend 20%. Tip envelopes are provided at the front desk.
What about massage for minors?
Therapists may provide massage for minors under 18 with parental consent. We ask parents to call the reception desk to schedule a session and sign a Parental Consent Form for us to keep on file.
Can I bring my child or pet with me?
Since it is our responsibility to create a peaceful atmosphere for all of our clients, we ask that you not bring children or pets. We make exceptions for service dogs.
