Frequently asked questions
I've never had a massage, what can I expect for my first one?
Soft lighting and music is provided and heated towels are used on tense areas to promote relaxation. Massage lotion or oil is used. If you have a preference, please let me know. Communication is key as well, if the pressure needs to be changed, the music is too loud or if there is anything else I can do to meet your needs, please do not hesitate to let me know. This is your time! As a licensed therapist I practice draping which means your discreet areas are covered at all times. An added blanket and heated table is offered as well for extra comfort. It is your choice to leave your underwear on or off. If you prefer to leave your clothes on that is fine too.
I'm self conscious about my body, how can I relax for a full body massage?
It's completely normal to feel self conscious before getting your first massage. Be assured that as a therapist the last thing on my mind is judging someone on their body shape or size. During a massage I focus on making you feel better. I don't even go into that train of thought, so relax!
What is your tipping policy?
Over the years I generally receive tips averaging from 15-20%. It is completely up to you if you want to tip and how much. Basically my motto is, "Tips are gladly accepted, but not expected."
