Your First Session
Meet & Greet
We will arrive 15 mins before the appointment to set up ready for your massage. We start with a chat about you, your medical history and any questions that you may have so that we can give you the best treatment possible.
Before We Start
Once we have discussed the Massage plan, your therapist will explain how they would like you to lie on the table and what clothes / jewellery to take off while they leave the room for a few moments to give you some privacy.
Oils and Draping
Your can choose an oil . Please say if you have any skin allergies. You will be draped with a sheet during treatment with your therapist uncovering areas to be massaged.
What to Expect
Various techniques may be used, from soft & relaxing to deep tissue work, stretches, joint mobilisations, & percussive strokes to relax, release & unwind the tissues of the body.
It’s important that the therapist & client communicate in the session. Massage is not something that should just be done to someone. If you would like more or less pressure please ask.
After the Massage
When the session is over your therapist will give you a few moments of peace to appreciate the benefits of the treatment. Also giving you time to get dressed before they return with a tall glass of water.
Wherever possible we give clients advice as to appropriate after care. This may be advice on stretches, a practitioner recommendation, or maybe advice just to rest well and drink plenty of water.
