What To Expect during
a massage or bodywork session

Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience freedom from long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity, which can last for days. Since toxins are released from your soft tissues during a massage, it is recommended you drink plenty of water afterward.
How Will I Feel After The Massage Or Bodywork Session?
Yes. Thatís why itís imperative that before you begin your session, the practitioner ask general health questions. It is very important that you inform the practitioner of any health problems or medications you are taking. If you are under a doctorís care, it is strongly advised that you receive a written recommendation for massage or bodywork prior to any session. Many practitioners may require a recommendation or approval from your doctor.
Are There Medical Conditions That Would Make Massage Or Bodywork Inadvisable?
You and the practitioner will discuss the desired outcome of your session. This will determine which parts of your body require massage. A typical full-body session will include work on your back, arms, legs, feet, hands, head, neck, and shoulders.
You will not be touched on or near your genitals (male or female) or breasts (female).
What Parts Of My Body Will Be Massaged?
It depends on the techniques used. In a general Swedish massage, your session may start with broad, flowing strokes that will help to calm your nervous system and ease exterior muscle tension. As your body unwinds, pressure will gradually be increased to relax and relieve specific areas of muscular tension. You should communicate with your practitioner immediately if you feel any discomfort so that another approach may be taken.
Massage and bodywork are most effective when your body is not resisting.

"Tension is who you think you should be.
Relaxation is who you are."
Chinese Proverb
Your massage or bodywork session will take place in a warm, comfortable, quiet room. Soft music may be played to help you relax. You will lie on a table especially designed for your comfort.
Where Will My Massage or Bodywork Session Take Place?
Your session will be conducted by a professional who has received proper training, often in a variety of techniques. Some massage and bodywork practitioners are licensed by the state, while others are locally regulated. Although no two massages are exactly alike, you may request a certain technique or modality. You may also request your preference as to a male or female therapist.
Who Will Perform The Massage or Bodywork?
Most massage and bodywork techniques are traditionally performed with the client unclothed; however, you may decide what amount of clothing you prefer to wear for your own comfort. You will be properly draped during the session.
Must I Be Completely Undressed?
The practitioner will leave the room while you undress, relax onto the table, and cover yourself with a clean sheet or towel.
Will The Practitioner Be Present When I Disrobe?
You will be properly draped at all times to keep you warm and comfortable. Only the area being worked on will be exposed.
Will I Be Covered During The Session?
