What to Expect During Your Appointment At your first visit your therapist will have you fill out an intake form if you have not already done so. Your therapist will then go over your health and medical history, as well as any specific goals or areas you'd like to work on during your massage.

After your intake interview your therapist will leave the room to allowyoutimeto undress.How muchyouundress isuptothe individual; some preferto completelyundress,whileothersfeelmorecomfortableleavingonundergarments (please note, however, that leaving on undergarments may restrict therapists' access to some areas of the body). Once undressed you can get on the massage table under the top sheet. If you need assistance getting onto the table please let your therapist know before they leave the room. Your therapist will give you a few minutes to get settled before knocking and re-entering the treatment room.
Once your massage begins your therapist will regularly check in with you for feedback on pressure, temperature, etc. If at any time if you would like more or less pressure, you're feeling chilled or too warm, or would like to focus on a specific area please don't hesitate to let your therapist know.
Once your session is complete your therapist will again leave the room to allow you time to dress. When you are ready you are free to leave the treatment room and meet your therapist. Payment for services are due at the end of your session and will be handled at this time.
