Try not to eat before a massage session and aim to arrive on time. If you are rushing around, it might take you longer to relax.
You can arrive in comfortable clothing or change when you get here. Please wear something that gives you room to stretch. Try and avoid clothing with lots of zips or buttons to ensure you are most comfortable.
On your first visit please allow an additional fifteen minutes for an initial consultation. You will be required to fill in a confidential health form and we’ll discuss your requirements, health concerns and your aims for the treatment. It’s important to let us know your expectations and reasons for the massage.
You will lie on a Thai Yoga mat on the floor. During the massage session feel free to give feedback on the amount of pressure, you can let us know if there is any discomfort, either from the massage or environment, e.g., room temperature, music etc.
At the end of your massage we’ll give you some time to have a drink of water, lie, relax and absorb the results of your session.
Remember massage has its greatest benefits over time. The therapeutic effects of massage are cumulative, so the more often you get a massage, the better you will feel and the more quickly your body will respond. From one session to the next, relaxation deepens as the chronic patterns of stress in the body are affected and released. If you’re getting massage to address chronic muscular tension or recovery from a soft tissue injury, more than one session is usually needed.
