Any Questions?

If this is your first time booking a treatment with me, here are some things that may like to know...

How long is the session?

You can book a treatment for 60 or 90 minutes. Bear in mind that you will need more time than this for the whole process. For a 60 minute treatment you will usually need and hour and twenty minutes for the whole process.

 

If this is your first treatment with me we will start the session with a consultation. This will add 20 to 30 minutes to the session. This is so I can take a full history and get to know you a bit.  This way I can plan the best treatment for you. Subsequent sessions will take a little less time.

How can I prepare the space?

I will need some room to set up. The couch is almost the size of a single bed and I will need some room to walk around it.

You might like to prepare a relaxing atmosphere by lighting a candle, playing some music or burning incense. Remember: The key to an effective massage is relaxation, so prepare the space in a way that relaxes you.

Will I be warm enough?

This is a common worry. If you can, put the heating on 30 minutes before your treatment. Remember that you will be lying still and wearing less than you usually would. You are likely to warm up as the massage progresses but you may find you are colder at the start. If you have a blanket handy we could use that to help keep you warm.

Can I get a massage after eating?

Ideally you should not have a massage immediately after eating. If you are hungry before your appointment consider having something small and light (perhaps a banana?) to sustain you. If you must eat before the massage try to keep it light.

Are there any reasons why I won't be able to have a massage?

Yes, There are some cases that will stop a massage treatment from going ahead. These are:

  • If you are in the first trimester of a pregnancy or a high risk pregnancy

  • If you are under the influence of alcohol or certain non-prescription drugs at the time of the appointment

  • Certain medical conditions are total contraindications to massage. For example DVT, Fever or Contagious diseases. On booking your appointment I will pre-screen for these.

What do I need for my appointment?

  • An hour and a half of uninterrupted time. 

  • A warm, quiet room

  • 2 large, clean towels

  • A glass of water

  • music, candles or anything else that helps you to relax!
