massage FAQ/Blog

What is the first appointment like?

Depending on the massage technique which we will be using, you may or may not need to undress.

For a full body Swedish massage, most people undress completely, though you may choose to wear underwear. You will relax on a padded table designed for stability and comfort.

For many techniques, a lubricant will be used, such as light oil or lotion.

For some kinds of bodywork, no oil is used.

A massage session usually begins with relatively gentle pressure to calm your nervous system and begin releasing your superficial tension.
