What to expect if it's your first massage

Take your time and try to be in a calm state before your massage appointment, if you're rushing and arrive stressed it will take you longer to get into a relaxed state. 

First appointments begin with an intake process, starting with health history such as medical conditions, areas of concern, contact information, etc.

If you're a first time client it's good to arrive a few minutes early to fill out paperwork.

All the information you give is confidential. Let the therapist know what areas of your body you would like worked on or any areas you would like avoided. Don't be afraid to discuss any apprehensions or concerns. 

After the intake process, the therapist will show you where the massage will be taking place and give proper instructions. The therapist will leave the room and allow you to undress to your comfort level before lying on the massage table.

You will be fully covered at all times, only the area that the therapist is working on will be exposed.

Make sure you're comfortable and let the therapist know if you're not. 

Relax.

At the end of the massage the therapist will leave the room and allow you to re-dress...take your time.

Water is given to you to help flush the toxins from your body after the massage session.
