What to expect during Massage Session

First time:

Anyone who would like to receive Massage Therapy Services at Therapeutic Touch will need to fill out a consent form. You can fill out the form before receiving first therapy session at Therapeutic  Touch or you can print out the form from the website, fill out at your convenience and bring with you to the first session.

Where will my massage session take place?

Your massage will take place in a quiet room especially designed to be esthetically pleasing to all your senses; soothing music playing in the background. For your comfort and ease, you will lay on a plush padded massage table that is warmly heated in the winter.

Who will perform the massage?

A certified and licensed Massage Therapist will conduct your massage session. Please let your Massage Therapist know the appropriate amount of massage pressure you desire, based on a scale of 1-10; 1 being very light-pressure and 10 being very deep-pressure.

Must I be undressed?

Your Massage Therapist will ask you to leave your underwear on. Massage sessions are performed with the Client completely draped with a sheet and often a blanket for extra reassurance and warmth. It is best to remove jewelry and undergarments so that Therapist can massage your neck, back, hips and arms with greater ease. Your Massage Therapist will show you where to hang your clothes, where to place your jewelry, and how to lie on the massage table.

I understand the sessions are private but are they confidential?

Absolutely without question, all sessions are private and confidential.

What should I do during the massage session?

Take this time totally for yourself. Your Therapist will adjust the face cradle and a pillow will be placed and adjusted either under your knees or your ankles for complete comfort. Anytime during the massage session, your Therapist would be happy to make any readjustments once your body begins to drop down and reposition. Your Massage Therapist will either gently move you or tell you what is needed throughout the session, (such as lifting your arm). Many people just close their eyes and completely let go, drifting in and out of a deep state of relaxation. Other Clients like to talk during their session, so please do whatever is good for you. Feel free to ask your Massage Therapist questions about what you are experiencing during the massage session or about the particular techniques you are receiving.
