What takes place in a professional massage?
First, you will fill out a short, confidential intake and medical history form. Next, you will talk with the massage therapist, who will answer any questions you might have.
The massage takes place in a private room on a massage table specially designed for your comfort. In private, you will undress to your level of comfort and lie under a sheet and blanket. The massage duration will be based on which time you chose.
Massage lotion or oil will be used. At the completion of the massage you will rest a short time, dress, check out, and your visit is complete.
