What to Expect
Your First Massage Therapy Session
We believe everyone should be able to take advantage of the wonderful therapeutic and stress relieving benefits of massage therapy. We are committed to ensuring that every time you visit our clinic, you enjoy a caring and healing experience provided by a professional massage therapist. If you've never visited us or have yet to receive a professional massage therapy session, we thought it would be helpful for you to know what to expect on your first visit.
Meet and Greet
Once you arrive, our front desk will greet you and ask you to fill out a Client Intake Form and a quick survey. The Client Intake Form is where you record any medical history, past/present injuries and other physical conditions we should be made aware of. Your massage therapist will greet you and review the Client Intake Form with you. They will inquire about the reason(s) you are coming for a massage, your current physical condition and any specific areas in which you are experiencing pain or would like addressed during your massage.
The Treatment Room
Your massage therapist will then take you to a peaceful treatment room where a comfortable massage table dressed with a warming blanket and crisp clean sheets awaits. A small shelf for your personal belongings and a chair are also provided for your use. Your massage therapist will leave the room and wait outside while you disrobe to your level of comfort. Some clients prefer to completely disrobe, while some will remain partially clothed. Once disrobed, you will lie on the massage table, under the top sheet. Your massage therapist will give you a few minutes for this process and will knock on the door to ask if you are ready before entering your room.
You will always be draped with the top sheet during your massage session and an additional blanket is available at your request. Your massage therapist will only uncover the part of the body they are working on, ensuring that your modesty is respected at all times.
You can expect a tranquil and comfortable environment during your massage. The massage table is padded and a heating blanket is placed beneath the sheet, which you can have adjusted to your preference. There will be relaxing music playing, unless you request otherwise, and the room should be quiet, with no outside distractions.
Your Needs First
Before beginning the session, your therapist will ask you to alert them if, at any time during the session, a technique or stroke they are using is uncomfortable. Depending on your specific needs or requests, your massage therapist will either perform a customized full-body massage (for general relaxation and stress reduction) or focus on the specific parts of your body that you have requested.
To Paradise and Back
Once your massage therapy session is completed, your therapist will leave the room so you may re-dress. Your therapist will wait outside the room for you, and then take you back to the front area.
Our massage therapy sessions are one hour in length. This time includes a 5 minute pre-interview, 50 minutes of hands-on time and 5 minutes at the end for you to re-dress.
We look forward to seeing you on your next visit, and any questions you may have will gladly be answered by our Clinic Staff.
