Please plan on arriving early for us to address your goals for our session. If this is your first massage visiting the Studio please arrive about 20 minutes early so we can discuss your health, your goals and you will also be showed what will be done for your session. The number one concern is for your safety and to make you feel safe and comfortable during our session so it is extremely important that I have thorough knowledge of your health history because some conditions are contraindication for massage. I especially need to know if you may be in your first trimester of pregnancy – I generally wait to work on pregnant clients until they have entered their 2nd trimester. You may dress however you wish, but if you would like to receive a massage following a workout, please shower before your massage. I will show you into the O massage studio, go over your health history and goals for the massage session, and then leave the room to allow you to undress and get onto the table. You should feel free to remove as much or as little of your clothing as you wish. I will be more effective if you are fully undressed, including your undergarment, but your comfort level is most important. Thai massage will require clothing please check with us for more clarification if needed. I work with my clients fully draped, meaning that only the part of your body where I am working at that particular moment will be exposed. Once you are undressed, on the table, and under the sheets and blanket, I will knock to make sure you are ready, come back into the room, and begin the session. I generally work with some sort of soft music playing, but I will gladly change the music or work in silence if you prefer. I will check in with you about pressure, temperature, and general comfort, but please remember that only you can feel what is going on inside your own body, and that you should feel free to tell me if anything is at all painful or uncomfortable. I do my best work when I am quiet and focused, so you can expect me to remain fairly silent during sessions except to check in with you. When your session is over, I will again leave the room to allow you to get dressed.
