What to Expect

Being a massage therapist and having had hundreds of massages I sometimes forget that getting a massage is a new experience for some people. There are lots of reasons that people come in for massage, some include interest in relieving chronic pain, softening up tight muscles, a need to make time for themselves or simply to see what all the hype is about. Whatever your reason, I’d encourage you to try it, at least once, to judge the practice for yourself. It’s also important to note that each therapist is different, so just because you didn’t like a session with one practitioner doesn’t mean you won’t like the session with another. Below I outline the basic steps of getting a massage. I try to point out differences that might arise if you come see me versus someone else or indulge in a spa experience.
