What To Expect
THE BODYWORK EXPERIENCE
On your first visit, you may be asked to fill out an intake form and provide a brief medical history regarding any injuries or problem areas you may have. Take this time to tell us if you don’t want a certain body part worked. You will then be asked to undress to your comfort level and to get on the massage table under the towel or sheet provided. While you do this, we will leave the treatment room to wash our hands. Upon returning, the massage will start using a variation of techniques as needed.
For your comfort table warmers are used, let us know if the temperature is to your liking. Additionally, because some therapists tend to work deeper than others, you will be asked from time to time to rate the pressure. Only a small amount of hypoallergenic water based creme is used, so you will also be asked if more lubrication is needed. Different lotions or oils can be used based on your request. Since everyone prefers a different amount of pressure or lubricant, it is important to communicate your needs with your therapist. Remember this is your massage, not ours.
After the massage, the therapist will leave the room while you dress. You will be provided with water before you leave. Water helps the body to flush the toxins that have been loosened during the massage, so you should always increase your water intake throughout the day after your massage.
