Frequently asked questions
If you are having a treatment within your own home you will not need any special equipment. Your therapist will come to your property with everything that they require for your session, including the massage table, towels, oils and even music.
You should undress to the level that you are comfortable with. For a full body massage, most people will undress to their underwear. However, if you will be more comfortable during the session wearing a pair of shorts etc, that’s fine. The therapist will work around the clothes that you have left on as best as they can. If removing all of your clothes makes you too nervous and unable to relax, then you are not getting the optimal benefit from the session. Your therapist will give you privacy to undress and get comfortable on the table. Please note, this only relates to massage treatments, you will remain fully clothed for a Reiki treatment.
This is known as draping and your therapist will insist on you doing so. Once you are undressed and lying on the table under the drape, your therapist will only uncover the part of your body that is being worked on. The genitals for both men and women and the breasts for 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 that the main sheet or towel can be moved to expose to area to be worked on.
This depends on the type of massage given and the depth of the strokes. A light, relaxing massage that doesn’t probe very deep into the muscles, shouldn’t hurt. With that being said, there is a ‘feels good’ hurt and an ‘ouch, stop it’ hurt. A good massage, even a really deep tissue massage, should always stay in the ‘feels good’ hurt range.
Pain can be an indication that the muscle is possibly injured or inflamed and pressure should be adjusted. Also, pain can cause you to tighten up and negate the relaxing effects of the massage. The most effective and deepest massage always works with your body’s natural response, not against it.
Honestly, this one is hard to say. Each person is unique and every condition is unique to each person. It may take one session or it may take several. You and your therapist will be able to talk more specifically about this after your first session and they have had a chance to evaluate your body’s tissues.
Most people will feel very relaxed after their treatment. Some experience a significant decrease or freedom from long-term aches and pains. Many feel a little slowed down for a short period and then notice an increase of energy, heightened awareness and increased productivity which can last for days.
If you received a deep massage, you may be slightly sore the next day, much like a good workout at the gym. Sometimes a hot shower or a soak in the bath can ease this soreness.
After your session you should increase your water intake a bit. Just a glass or two more than normal is usual fine. This helps keep your body’s tissues hydrated and healthy.
This varies from person to person. If you are just looking for some occasional relaxation, then a session every 3-6 weeks may be fine for you. However, if you are looking to address a specific condition, then it is recommended to have treatments more frequently at first and then slowly taper down to a maintenance schedule. Sometimes more frequent 30-minute sessions can be effective until your goals are met and a maintenance schedule is in place. Frequency of sessions should be discussed with your therapist after your treatment when they then have a better hands-on understanding of your particular muscular issues.
