You will complete a health intake form. Afterwards the massage therapist will begin by asking you general questions to establish what areas you would like worked on, if there are any conditions needing to be addressed and to determine what type of massage is appropriate for you. Your therapist may perform certain assessments and testing to evaluate your condition, and determine the source of your presenting complaints.
You will be properly draped at all times to keep you warm and comfortable. Only the area being worked on will be exposed.
You should undress to your desired level of comfort. For a full body massage, most get completely undressed. However, if you will be more comfortable during the session if you leave your underwear on, that’s fine. The therapist will work around the clothes you left on as best as he/she can. You will undress in the privacy of your massage room and will be securely covered by a sheet during your massage session.
Many clients are unsure if and/or how much they should tip their massage therapist. Just like with any service, it’s never required. Think of getting a massage the same as eating at a restaurant, where tipping 10 to 20% of the pre-discounted price is customary. If you really enjoyed your session, tip more. If you didn’t enjoy your service don’t tip. Remember, our therapists have a very physical job.
For those who use massage as preventative care or to manage daily stress, one massage a month is common. Weekly sessions may be necessary if you are receiving massage for injury relief or to relieve chronic pain or tension that is interfering with your daily life.
A license means that a massage therapist has met the requirements and paid the fee to legally practice massage in your city, county and/or state. To obtain a license, a massage therapist will usually have to complete a minimum number of training hours at an accredited or accepted school or training center. They also must continue their education at a minimum of 12.5 credit hours per year, in order to maintain their knowledge and seek new modalities.
