IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT FOR THE SPA?
The spa is an adult environment only. Children under the age of 16 are not permitted, unless accompanied by a parent.
What should I wear during my massage appointment?
You may choose to wear any clean clothing, undergarments or nothing at all. As the therapist performs the massage, the only area that will be exposed is the area of the body being treated at the moment. Once massage in that area has been completed, the therapist will re-drape the area with the sheet and blanket. Ultimately, what you wear is based on your level of comfort with the therapist, or what your specific therapist recommends based on the type of massage that you select. For example, if you would like to receive specific stretches, your therapist might ask you to keep your underwear on in order to ensure that your modesty is protected at all times.
How should I prepare for my massage?
Great question! There are several things that you can do to ensure that your massage is a great one:
A relaxing shower and freshly brushed teeth will be the best way to prepare for your session. The hot water will start loosening your muscles, kicking in the relaxation process. You and your therapist will be most comfortable with the absence of perfumes, oils, smoke, or other smells or substances, or naturally occurring odors that can accumulate during a typical day, and he or she will extend the same standard of cleanliness to you.
If you are a new client, please download the "Intake Form". Please print out and complete a form to provide to your therapist. If you cannot print the form, please contact your therapist and you may complete the form upon arrival.
Start drinking water now. Massage increases circulation through the body's "sewer system" and it flushes things our most easily when well hydrated. Once you have received your massage, keep drinking that water to maximize your body's efficiency and relaxation. You any feel very drowsy, like you could go to sleep. It is also possible to experience a bit of soreness in focus areas. But at no time should you feel overly sore.
What should I expect during my massage?
You should expect to feel relief and relaxation. In areas where you normally experience discomfort or tenderness, there may be a sensation that it "hurts so good" or that it's slightly uncomfortable, but still tolerable, and feels like it needs to be done. Or, you might experience pure relaxation. At no point should you feel like you want to jump off the table (except during deep tissue sessions). If at any point you feel like your therapist is giving too much pressure or stretch, or not enough, please be sure to communicate this to him or her, and he or she will respond by adjusting the pressure accordingly.
Can I stop my massage once it has started?
Absolutely! If you feel the need to stop your massage at any time, you may do so. However, refunds are only given if a cancellation within 24 hours of booking, and your therapist will still need to be fairly compensated for time, travel, and set-up in the event of a last-minute cancellation.
Do I have to tip?
Tips are never expected, but always appreciated when our therapist has delivered exceptional service. Feel free to include a tip with your credit card purchase, or you may provide cash tips directly to your therapist.
How much should I tip?
Give what you feel inclined to give from your heart. 15-20% is the range for most gratuities. But feel free to give more or less based on the level of service you received.
What is included in the massage?
Your session includes an experienced and professionally insured Licensed Massage Therapist. This therapist will provide the massage table, chair, sheets, music, and his or her oil or lotion of choice (unless otherwise agreed upon between client and therapist), and your choice of aromatherapy. We provide everything you need. All you have to do is relax!
A variety of massage techniques including compression, kneading, rocking, jostling, vibration, tools, and assisted stretching (when indicated) are included with your massage.
Can I still receive a massage if I am pregnant?
This will depend on you and the health of your pregnancy or your history with pregnancy, but in most cases the answer is YES! In fact, massage can be extremely effective in helping you to feel fabulous during all three trimesters of pregnancy. If you are classified as "high risk" or have a history of miscarriage, then you'll want to check with your doctor before your first session.
What is NOT included in the massage?
Treatment of any specific disease or condition. We're not doctors here!
Hot Stones (for both liability reasons and convenience)
Sexually oriented discussions, suggestions, harassment or favors of any kind.
What type of oil/creme do you use?
My lotion of choice is made by a small manufacturer, Source Vital; our CBD massage crème is by Biotone. It is free of fragrance, dyes, and parabens. If you have a special oil or lotion that you would like to use, please notify the therapist at the time of the booking request.
How should I pay, do I have to pay by cash?
Massage and spa treatments can be paid by cash or credit card. Our Bluetooth device accepts swipe and chip reader.
Please download the "Client Intake Form" from our secure website and print, to be completed prior to your appointment. If for some reason the form cannot be downloaded it can be completed upon arrival to your appointment.
