Frequently asked questions
What do I need to wear, clothes, a dressing gown, underwear ?
I ask clients that they are to wear a minimum of underwear, at no point is a client required to be unclothed. I can in some instances treat you the client without you having to remove any clothing whatsoever. The treatment is tailored to you, your comfort and privacy is of paramount importance.
What type of treatment do I need to book, what is the difference between the styles of massages.
All treatments are tailored to each individual client. There are various labels given to treatments such as Swedish Massage, Sports Massage, Myofascial Release, Chinese Acupressure Massage and Deep Tissue Massage. Your treatment can have elements of each of these styles of massage, depending on the condition of your soft tissues and the desired outcome of the treatment. For example, if you want to relax, your treatment will involve more traditional Swedish techniques and if you want to have deep tissue massage work your treatment will involve using more pressure and more targeted areas of work.
Do I need to provide my own towels or anything else?
I under normal circumstances bring everything required for each treatment, including the massage couch, towels, oils, and music and other relevant equipment.
However due to Covid-19, If I am treating you in your home, I will limit the amount of equipment I bring to your home and I will request that you provide your own towel. That is if I am treating you in your home.
I have never had a massage before, what do I need to know and how does it work?
A massage treatment always begins with a consultation first. Your therapist will discuss your current health and well-being and complete a consultation form with you.
Once this information has been gathered, your therapist will discuss with you the treatment plan, and your privacy will be protected during the treatment using relevant toweling.
If at any point during the treatment you feel discomfort or any pain, you will need to make the therapist aware and they will normally ask you also during the treatment how the pressure feels to you. Your comfort is the most important part of your treatment.
When the treatment is finished your therapist will inform you, and you will be given a few minutes to come back round, if you are feeling tired or sleepy. Your therapist will leave the room whilst you redress and wake back up.
You are encouraged to drink a glass of water following your treatment.
You may be given homecare advice if required and relevant to your treatment.
During Covid 19 Aftercare advice will be given online through the website or through your email address.
Please be aware due to Covid-19, Consultations will now be completed online, or over the phone or I can post a consultation form to you and ask you to post it back to me prior to your treatment.
