What to expect from your massage experience:

During your initial visit, you will be required to fill out paperwork consisting of general client information, massage history, and health history.   The client is also asked to sign a disclaimer, cancellation policy, and HIPPA form.  The client will be provided with a bill of rights and asked to sign a form acknowledging their rights.  This process typically takes less than 15 minutes.  New clients should arrive 10 minutes prior to their appointment to enable them time to fill out paperwork.  This process can be expedited by printing and filling out paperwork prior to you appointment.  (See “Forms” drop down box on home page)

You can expect a calm and peaceful environment during your massage. The massage table is padded and heated for your comfort.  Feel free to ask if it can be adjusted to your preference. There will be relaxing music playing, unless you request otherwise.  A typical massage session will last 30 to 90 minutes, with a longer session allowing for more extensive treatment. For treatment, the client disrobes to their comfort level and is covered by a sheet and/or blanket. The therapist only uncovers the particular part of the body being worked on at that moment.

Before beginning the session, you and the therapist will discuss the best treatment plan for you.  The massage therapist will either perform a customized full-body massage or focus on the specific parts of your body that you have requested.  Feel free to give feedback about techniques being used at any time during the session.  Your comfort is of the utmost importance.  Massage Essentials uses Biotone cream during your treatment.  It is a high quality hypo-allergenic massage cream.
