Sharing medical history
Our massage therapist will ask about your medical history to ensure your safety. We may use oil or lotion during massages. This is why it’s important to let our therapist know if you have allergies. Before scheduling an appointment, we recommend discussing the pros and cons with your doctor. If you have severe osteoporosis, your doctor might advise against massage. We are always concerned about your safety. That is why we ask you questions about your medical history and any concerns you might have before your appointment.
Know your comfort level
We will ask you to wear whatever is most comfortable for your massage. Some people are happy to be completely naked underneath the sheet. Others may prefer to wear their swimsuits or keep their underwear on. You can keep your clothes on if you prefer, but you will still be able to benefit from body massaging. Our massage spa wants our guests to feel relaxed and comfortable.
People prefer different pressures to release knots in their backs and feel more relaxed. A Swedish massage is an easy form that is perfect for those starting in spas. The massage therapist will mix rolling, vibration, percussive, and tapping movements during the appointment.
If you feel discomfort or pain during your massage, please let us know so we can reduce the pressure. Some massages, such as deep tissue, may make you feel sore the next day. However, you shouldn’t feel any pain during your appointment. Massages and other spa treatments should be relaxing and not painful.
Swedish massage has many health benefits. It’s more than relaxing and feeling good. It’s about your health. We offer an upgrade to deep tissue massage for sore or damaged muscles. Depending on your chosen service, your appointment may last 60 to 90 minutes.
