If getting a massage for the first time makes you nervous, you are not alone. Many people have their first massage experience when they receive a gift certificate to a salon or from family or a friend. Some people don’t even use the gift certificate because they are anxious about what will happen and the finer points of massage etiquette.
New clients should arrive at least 15 minutes before your massage appointment so you will have time to complete a client profile.
Turn your cell phone to vibrate or off if it’s not needed.
Please call 440-975-2920 if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment.
Late arrivals may not receive a full service and will be billed for the full service. Arriving early will allow you to enjoy every minute of your session.
It is recommended to schedule your next appointment prior to leaving.
Gratuity is not included in the pricing. It is not required or expected, but if it is offered it is greatly appreciated.
No one under the age of 18 may receive a massage without a parent or legal guardian present.
Get the Most From Your Massage
Talk. Let your practitioner know what your needs are.
Report any discomfort throughout the massage and give feedback during the massage to make it yours.
If the massage is too light or too hard, ask to have the pressure changed. Some massage techniques are only light, but asking is appropriate.
Let me know before the session has started if specific areas are tense or ache.
If you become cold on the massage table, please tell me right away. Usually if a person becomes chilled, it is nearly impossible for him/her to relax.
Breath. Breathing helps facilitate relaxation and can help you get the most out of a massage.
Relax. Tightening up is counter productive to your massage. Let your practitioner know if you are having trouble relaxing.
Drink water. Drinking plenty of water after your massage helps eliminate toxins released during your massage.
Schedule. Massage has the greatest benefits over time. The effects of massage are cumulative. So the more often a person gets a massage, the better he or she will feel and the more quickly your body will respond.
