• Never wear scented body products (perfume, cologne) to a massage. You may like the scent but your asthmatic therapist may be gasping for breathable oxygen.
  • Freshly wash your hair just prior to your massage. No therapist wants to massage your neck and scalp when your hair is greasy and dirty. The oily smell & feel can be quite nauseating.
  • It is imperative that you bathe prior to a massage and exfoliate your skin before the massage, especially between your toes and your back. Old excess skin that easily sloughs off  can congeal into unpleasant and sometimes odorous skin-balls from friction.
  • For your therapist’s protection against cuts and bacterial infections, he/she will avoid your feet if you have not cut and filed any sharp edges off of your toenails.
  • Cigarette smokers may not be able to be seen for massage with certain therapists due to the therapist's own asthma and allergies. Please be kind and disclose this when making your first appointment. We don’t want to have to turn you away once you arrive; but we have and we will if there is not a therapist that can serve you appropriately.
  • Inform the therapist if you have a spray tan or body make-up on so that we can use non-staining sheets during your treatment.
  • It is never okay to bring children or pets to your massage that will be unsupervised while you are mentally and physically unavailable on the massage table. The office is not child proof and it is incredibly distracting and worrisome to the therapist. Also, we will NOT allow our employees to watch your child in the lobby while you are receiving services.
  • Please do not bring additional people to your massage. No therapist wants to be watched while she is working or have to alter her routine because someone is in her way.
  • Please do not use the terms: “Masseuse” for your Massage Therapist, “Bed” for Massage Table or “Rub”/“Stroke” for a Massage Technique. These are terms intentionally used by sexual deviants (“Johns”) in the U.S. to communicate with prostitutes, not legitimate Licensed Massage Therapists.
  • It is not important to shave before a massage. Your therapist doesn’t care or even notice. The only exception to this rule is if you are having Kinesio Taping, then you must do it 24 hours in advance to avoid skin irritation. If less than 24 hours, use clippers only.
  • It is important to disclose any new medications and treatments you are currently undergoing that vary from your original intake form prior to rebooking any massage appointment.
  • You must cover all open skin (cuts, warts, etc) with a bandaid and bring to the therapists attention prior to your massage.
  • Remove all make-up from face before climbing on to the massage table. Replacing stained linens can be very costly.
  • Remove all jewelry prior to your massage. We are not responsible for lost or damaged items.
  • We ask that you turn your cell phone off during your massage for your own peace-of-mind. If you need to leave it on for an emergency, that’s fine.......just let the therapist know.
  • Do not consume alcoholic beverages, narcotic pain-killers or relaxants prior to your massage. This creates an ethical dilemma for your therapist and exposes him/her to unwanted liability and you may be asked to reschedule for a time when you are not under the influence.
  • Never make jokes or comments of a sexual nature to your therapist. His/her sense of decorum may be dramatically different than yours and misunderstandings after incidents of this nature can be difficult to rectify.

During Your 1st Visit

  • Your therapist will give you instructions as to how to get on the table and drape yourself appropriately.  The therapist will leave the room while you undress.
  • Your therapist will knock before coming back into the room to make sure that you are on the table and covered. She/he will then adjust the headrest and use bolsters where needed.  Full lighting is used for MediCupping™ treatments and soft lighting is used for all other massages.  Verbal feedback from clients is required in Target Area and MediCupping™ treatments.
