During the session you will be unclothed, or nearly so, depending upon your comfort level. Some clients perfer to leave their undergarments on, and you will be properly covered the entire time. During the massage your therapist will uncover only the body part they are massaging to ensure you are comfortable and warm.
Make yourself as comfortable as possible (WITHIN REASON). Just close your eyes and relax. Talking is not necessary. Feedback concerning any discomfort or addressing special problems is encouraged.
Just like with any service, tips are never required. But, like eating at a restaurant, it is customary to tip 10 to 20% of the pre-discounted price. If you really enjoyed your session, tip more.

Likely, the best known type of massage, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes. Swedish massage will help increase oxygen levels in in the blood while decreasing muscle toxins. Other benefits are improved circulation and flexibility and easing of muscular tension.
Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but deeper pressure is applied to aid in the release of chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints). Deep tissue massage has been found toreduce stress and heart rates while triggering the release of 'feel good' hormones like Seratonin.
In Shiatsu therapy, pressure with thumbs, hands, elbows, knees or feet is applied to pressure points on the body. This form of massage also focuses on rotating and stretching limbs, joints, and pressure points. Shiatsu massage is especially helpful to those suffering from fatigue, but can be beneficial for a variety of maladies, from chronic headaches and anxiety to arthritis and insomnia.
Thai massage is a form of body work that has gained wide popularity in the West. It uses gentle pressure on energy lines and yoga-like stretching to relax the whole body on a deeper level. Not only does Thai massage help to reduce stress, but it can also reduce joint pain and improve range of motion.
Aromatherapy is the practice of using essential oils to promote physical, mental, and emotional well-being, Although the word “aroma” makes it sound as if the oils are inhaled, they can also be massaged into the skin. Aromatherapy has grown in popularity and is used for a variety of applications, including pain relief, mood enhancement and increased cognitive function.
Hot stone massage is a type of massage that involves the use of smooth, heated stones that the massage therapist places on your body or uses as 'extensions' of their hands to massage the body. The penetrating heat and weight of the stones warm and relax tense muscles so the therapist can work more deeply and more quickly.
A Chair massage focuses mainly on the upper back and shoulders. As opposed to laying down on a massage table, the recipient is seated in a specially designed massage chair. Chair massage is great for those who experience tension in the shoulders and upper back from sitting at a desk all day.
The Myofascial tissues surround and support the muscles throughout your body. Myofascial release focuses on reducing tightness and shortness of these tissues through the application of gentle, sustained pressure. Myofascial release is often prescribed for individuals suffering from myofascial pain syndrome, but can be beneficial to anyone suffering from chronic muscular pain.
