What to expect.

Your massage therapist will do everything to ensure that your experience is positive and rewarding.  You may be asked about your reasons for getting a massage, current physical condition, medical history, lifestyle, stress level, areas of pain, and other pertinent topics.  You'll be asked to undress in private and drape yourself with a sheet, towel or gown provided by the therapist.  You may leave your undergarments off or on, at your discretion.  You'll lie down on a comfortably padded massage table.  The therapist will undrape only the part of the body being massaged ensuring that your modesty is respected at all times. 

You should expect a peaceful and comfortable environment for your massage.  Report distraction of any kind to your therapist whether from physical distraction, room temperature, volume of music or any other source.  This time is yours and communication is the best way to get the most of your experience.
