Frequently Asked Questions
- What if I am uncomfortable with my body? Do I have to undress?
- Let your therapist know your comfort level. Most techniques are applied to the skin directly and use oil or lotion as lubricant. Your Student Therapist will only expose the area which they are working on. However it is possible to adapt all techniques to a client who is dressed.
- Am I expected to talk during the massage?
- If you wish to have silence, you should say so at the beginning of the treatment. The student therapist is required to check from time to time that you are comfortable. She will also ask for your feedback when working in areas that are potentially painful or sensitive.
- After my appointment, is there anything I need to have on hand or anything specific I should do?
- Plan for 30 minutes of quiet time right after your treatment. An Epsom salt bath is recommended to soothe and to calm muscles, and enhance the benefits of the massage. Make sure to drink water to keep your tissues hydrated. Student therapists will usually prescribe an exercise or two for you to perform daily between your sessions.
