Will I have to undress in front of someone?

How much clothing will I have to remove?

You will only have to remove as much as you feel comfortable with, you will never be forced to remove any more than you want to.
For a back, neck and shoulder massage only you back needs to be uncovered; so trousers, skirts and shorts etc. can be left on.
For a full body massage underwear is always left on.

What should I do during a massage?

Make yourself comfortable and relax. Many people just close their eyes and relax completely during the session; others prefer to talk. It's your massage, and whatever feels natural for you is the best way to relax. Do not hesitate to ask questions and you can ask for the treatment to end at any time. If I need to adjust your position, I will either move you (for instance lift your arm) or I will tell you what is needed. Otherwise, change your position anytime to make yourself more comfortable.

How will the massage feel?

It depends on the techniques used. A variety of techniques will be used such as effleurage-(a sweeping, relaxing stroke with varming pressure). Kneading- (Pressure from the hands to break down tension). Friction- (Focusing on problem areas, to release tension). The pressure will be adjusted depending on your needs; if you find it to firm or light just say and the pressure will be adjusted accordingly. Oil will be used to reduce friction on the skin.

Will it hurt?

Depending on the massage you require it may hurt to release the tension. Also you may ache after the treatment, you need to discuss any requirements in the consultation, the massage will be adjusted to suit your needs.

I have got sensitive skin which oils will be used?

Sensitive skin is extremely reactive to heat, cold and beauty products. Please mention this during the consultation. Before using some oil a patch test is usually recommended. This can be done in a free consultation at least 24 hours before the massage. The essential oils will never be used neat they will always be diluted in a carrier/ fixed oil like sweet almond or peach kernel oil for easy application. The following essential oils all very gentle and suitable for use: Chamomile, Sandalwood, Lavender, mandarin and Rose.

How should I prepare for a massage?

You just need to arrive clean and as relaxed as possible. Some people find a nice warm shower or bath helps them relax before they arrive.

What areas will be massaged?

Don't worry- no private areas will be exposed or ever touched. Only the areas you are comfortable with will be massaged, you can discuss this in the consultation the rest of your body will be covered at all times. The most important thing is that you relax and get as many benefits as possible from the treatment.

How long will the treatment last?

It depends on what you book. A Back neck and shoulder massage will last 30 minutes. Full body massage will last 1 hour. The Luxury full body massage will last 1 1/2 hours- giving you extra time to relieve more tension and knots. If at any point you want the treatment to stop all you have to do is say.

Can I bring someone?

No, sorry, for security reasons only one client at a time. However if you feel that it is a necessity then please phone 01379 741871 to discuss your needs.

How often should I have a massage?

It depends, the more stress and tension you have the more often you will need to come. Most people find it beneficial to have a massage every 1-4 weeks.
Typically a massage every week or two is ideal for getting you muscles more pliable and in better shape, then once you are feeling better a treatment once month is probably ideal for maintaining the health of your tissue. If you start leaving it too long then your muscles can revert to their old patterns and you'll have to start over again. Please feel free to discuss this in the consultation.
