Q) Do I have to be completely undressed?
A) You should undress to the level you are comfortable with. For a full body massage, most people get completely undressed but leave just their underpants/ kickers on. The therapist will work around the clothes you left on as best as she can. If removing all your clothes makes you too nervous and unable to relax, then you are not getting the optimal benefit from the session.
Your massage therapist will give you privacy to undress and get comfortable on the table.
Q) Do I have to cover myself with a sheet or towel?
A)Yes we require you to cover at all times, your therapist will only uncover the part of your body being worked on.
The genitals (women and men) and breasts (women) will not be uncovered. If the therapist is going to work on a woman's abdomen, a second towel or sheet will be used to cover the breasts so the main sheet or towel can be moved to expose the abdomen.
Q) Do you offer couples massage?
A) Yes we do! we can do the massage in the same room or in separate rooms.
Q) Can I remove my underwear during the massage?
A) We recommend women to remove their bras so no straps are in the way of back neck and shoulder massage. But knickers/ pants/ underwear/ boxers etc MUST stay on.
Q) What if I fall asleep and snore or drool?
A)It is very common for people to fall asleep during their massage. If you snore or drool, don’t worry, your therapist has definitely seen this before and will not judge. We love seeing you so relaxed!
Q) Is there any aftercare I should follow?
A) For the next 12 hours
- Drink plenty of water and herbal infusions to help flush out toxins; massage aids the removal of toxins from the body. Aim to drink two glasses of water after each drink of tea or coffee.
- Don’t drink alcohol or smoke for the next 24 hours; massage aims to detoxify the body -alcohol and smoking are counter-productive as they increase the levels of toxins within the body.
- Avoid heavy meals
- Also avoid sauna & steam rooms
- Avoid direct exposure to strong sunlight, and do not use sun beds following the use of any oils.
- Be aware of your posture.
- Rest as much as possible in order to assist the healing process.
- You may experience a feeling of tiredness or fatigue following massage. In some cases, headaches may follow.
- You may feel emotional. It’s quite natural to feel tearful.
- Increased urination or flu-like symptoms (runny nose, coughing) may be experienced, but these will be temporary as the body re-balances itself.
It will be replaced by a feeling of well being!
Q) What if I get aroused during my massage?
A) Sometimes it happens but it usually passes very quickly. As long as you are not behaving inappropriately we will carry on with the treatment as normal.
If any clients do not behave eg. Inappropriate comments, or actions this will result in the treatment ending immediately and you will be asked to leave. This also means you will not be allowed to book for future treatments.
