FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY MASSAGE ?

  • If it’s your first time - fill out the online Intake form. This would be an email or located on your profile.
     

  • Covid-19 questionnaire expires every week. 
     

  • Be prepared to tell me how I can help you. Relaxation may be on the forefront, but we are here to fix problems as well. 
     

  • Don’t worry if you don’t know all the answers, I’ll lead you on the path of discovery. 

​GIVE YOURSELF TIME !     

If you are rushing to find parking, rushing in the door, rushing to fill out paperwork, it can take 10 minutes for your body to decompress and relax. By this time, we are a quarter way through the treatment. 

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR ?

  • Dress simply.  Extra layers of clothes and jewelry will just take more time to remove.
     

  • You will be asked to undress and lay comfortably between the sheets. 
     

  • And if I can ask a favour, please remove your mascara before treatment - it stains the face cover. Thanks!

5 TIPS

[ TO GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR MASSAGE ]

1. Focus on YOUR breathing.


If you are new to Massage it’s easy to focus on your therapist and the Massage. However this will just tighten up your body and not relax it. So breathe...
 

2. Talk to us. Tell us if you need anything to assist in your decompression. Heat, water, bathroom are just a few things. We are here to help!

 

3. Start drinking WATER, now!

 

Take your weight in lbs divide by 2 = oz of water you need per day. 

 

Your body, your mind, your energy will thank you.  If you don’t like water, buy a filter and add flavour. 

 

4. Don’t exercise after!

 

Go for a nice walk and move your body, but nothing too vigorous. 

 

5. Don’t just stop with the massage. Foam roll, stretch, heating and ice baths can be an additional approach to healing.
