Frequently asked questions

1. What should I expect during my first massage therapy visit?

I will spend some time with a consultation with you before your massage where I will will require you to fill out a health history form. If you have any health problems no matter how insignificant you think they are, it is best to use this time to let me know.

2. Where will my massage session take place?

Your massage treatment will take place in a warm, clean, quiet room. You will lie on a comfortable massage table padded with memory foam,. The table has a heated pad to enable you to relax and stay warm during your treatment during the winter months.

3. What do I wear during the massage?

You will be required to undress down to your underwear, I will leave the room while you undress and dress to ensure your privacy. At all times you will be covered with towels and only the area being treated will be exposed.

For a reflexology treatment you will be required to only remove your shoes and socks.

4. What do I do during a massage therapy treatment?

All that is required of you is that you relax and enjoy your treatment. Some people are very quiet and sometimes fall asleep, some people wish to talk, whatever makes you feel more comfortable is fine by me.


5. How will a massage feel?

Depending upon the type of massage you receive you will feel the pressure, when receiving deep tissue or sports massage there may be times when it can feel slightly uncomfortable , but should never feel painful, I would be communicating with you to ensure that the pressure is correct for you. This can also be to ensure there is enough pressure, everyone has different requirements. I will always adapt to your needs.

6. Will the reflexology 'tickle?'
Definitely not, no matter how ticklish your feet are you will be pleasantly surprised how relaxing the treatment is and how much it doesn't tickle.

6. Is there any reason I should not receive a massage?

There may be reasons where massage would not be an appropriate treatment for you, this is one of the reasons why a consultation

takes place before your treatment, it is important that you inform me of any medical conditions that you may have and any medications that you take.

8. How long will a massage treatment last?

I offer hour long treatments or half hour treatments, some hour treatments can be adapted to include dual treatments, for example half an hour reflexology and half an hour back massage. Some of my clients request an hour and a half which is also acceptable.

9. How will I feel after the massage therapy treatment?

Most people feel very relaxed. There is sometimes relief from pain and a feeling of more range of movement from areas that have been tense or tight. You may feel a little light-headed at first and this usually subsides after a drink of water and time to adjust. Some people report a burst of energy after a treatment. Some people continue to feel relaxed for the rest of the day.
