How often should I get a massage?

Depends on our treatment plan and what we are treating. Acute injuries can be once a week lasting 2 – 4 weeks. Regular massages can be once a month.

What type of space do I need when you come to my house?

Most people choose to have the massage in their bedroom, bonus room, basement, recreation rooms. What I need is a 10 ft. long by 5-foot-wide space to be able to function properly and for the portable massage table.

How far do I need to undress?

A full body massage requires undressing as far as your underwear. Lotions will be applied directly to skin. You will be covered fully with a sheet and only the area being worked on at that time will be exposed.

How will I feel after a massage?

It all depends on what type of massage the client comes in for. If you came in with pain, expect to feel some discomfort from the work that was done to relieve that pain. Usually, any discomfort should subside after a day or so. Some clients just want to come in and relax and de-stress. If you're coming in for relaxation, then you should feel just that -- more relaxed, even a little drowsy and ready for a nap. If you had a relaxing massage then you will probably still feel relaxed, maybe lighter, more energy, and less stressed. If you had a deeper massage or some specific work done you can feel sore in the targeted areas. This will feel like you worked out a bit too much and usually only lasts 24 hours, 48 at the most. When the soreness dissipates most people feel amazing, pain-free, with better mobility. Drinking an extra 10-20 ounces of water the day of a massage helps to reduce
