What to expect before your massage will help make your first visit less stressful.

This article is part of a five-part series, What to expect at your first massage.

Once you arrive at my clinic and introductions are done, I’ll ask you to complete a Patient Information Form.

This is the time when we’ll discuss your goals and what you hope to achieve from the massage session, including any long term health goals you may have.

This will help me customize your massage treatment to ensure maximum benefit from the session.

Generally there will be dim lighting which will allow you to relax more.

Specially selected music is available but always feel free to have your own music or ask to have to the music changed if it doesn’t suit you.

Most importantly, I will leave the room while you prepare for your massage.

Depending on the style of massage, you maybe instructed to remove your clothing (but not your underwear) and get on the massage table which you will then drape over yourself so you will be under a towel.

Please rest assured that your modesty will be protected at all times; I pride myself on it.

Any concerns or queries feel free to ring or email me before the appointment so i can clarify anything that may be of concern.

Otherwise at the appointment please bring any questions you may have.

I look forward to helping you achieve your desired outcomes.
