First Time Clients


Are you a first time client at Therapy {massage studio} or are you interested in checking it out? Welcome! Below is a bit of information for those new to our location, or to massage altogether…

 

At Therapy, we strive to provide professional massage that is both relaxing and therapeutically effective. From time to time we could all use a little relief from an aching shoulder, sore back, tight neck, sore feet etc., but there’s no reason why that 30, 60 or 90 minutes can’t also be a time to relax and recharge. Likewise, everyone needs to take time to themselves, to slow down and simply relax…there are many therapeutic benefits to even a relaxation massage. (Click here to read a Mayo Clinic article on the many benefits of massage)

“Whether viewed as alternative or complementary healthcare, massage therapy is a valuable form of preventive medicine. ” (Journal of Nursing)

Your first visit will begin with filling out a short form (click here to print & fill out that form ahead of time). Next, the therapist will take a few minutes, in the massage room, to talk to you about current medical conditions, aches & pains, daily activities etc., as well as discussing the best treatment for your body on that specific day. Your therapist will instruct you whether to start out face up or face down and then leave the room, allowing you to undress to your comfort level and lie down on the massage table, covering yourself with the blanket & sheet provided.

Do you have questions? Below are a few I hear often, please feel free to call, text or email us with any other questions, comments or concerns you may have.

 

Q) What does “undress to your comfort level” mean? Do I have to get naked?

A) You will be covered at all times other than the area that the therapist is working on. Meaning, if the therapist is working on your arm, your arm will be uncovered, leaving the rest of your body covered. It is perfectly acceptable to undress completely, your therapist will use the proper draping techniques to protect your modesty. If undressing completely is not an option for you, some clients are more comfortable wearing their underwear. Please keep in mind that some clothing may interfere with your massage; if you want focus on your back but choose to wear a shirt during your massage, it may be more difficult for your therapist to give you the best possible treatment. The bottom line: make sure you are comfortable, this is your massage.

 

Q) What if the pressure is not enough or is too much?

A) Please let your therapist know, at any time, if you are experiencing pain or discomfort. Yes, your therapist is the professional, but you know your body. Pressure preferences can vary from person to person, as well as from day to day. Keep in mind that some techniques may actually be deep tissue work, even if the pressure does not seem deep to you at the time. Please communicate with your therapist so that they may adjust the pressure, and deliver a treatment that will best benefit you.

 

Q) Am I supposed to talk or be quiet? What if I fall asleep?

A) Again, it’s your massage. Always let your therapist know if something is uncomfortable or painful. I would suggest that you take the time to yourself to focus on relaxing and releasing any tension. If you wish to talk the entire time, feel free. If you prefer silence, it will not hurt your therapist’s feelings. Your therapist will follow your lead on the amount of conversation throughout your massage. Even in complete silence, you may be asked questions about comfort, pressure level, temperature etc. If you fall asleep it’s no big deal, lots of people snore during a massage…that just means your relaxed, right? Your therapist will gently wake you when it’s time to roll over and when the massage is ending.
