Frequently Asked Questions (continued) 6. Will the massage oils used make me break-out?
     We use a hypo-allergenic gel with apricot and grapeseed oils for most massages. If you have sensitivity to any types of oils or lotion please bring it to the massage therapist's attention so we make sure to use only hypo-allergenic.
7. Is a massage always appropriate?
     No, there are several medical conditions that would make massage inappropriate. That's why it is necessary that you fill out the health history forms and before you begin your session. The massage therapist will ask general health questions to rule out if you have any contraindications to massage. It is very important that you inform the practitioner of any health problems or medications you are taking. If you are under a doctor's care, it is strongly advised that you receive a written recommendation for massage prior to any session. Your massage therapist may require a recommendation or approval from your doctor.
8. How will I feel after the massage therapy treatment?
     Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience freedom from long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity which can last for days. Since toxins are released from your soft tissues during a massage, it is recommended you drink plenty of water following your massage. Massage therapists sometimes recommend a hot Epsom salt bath that encourages the release of toxins that may have been stirred up from the massage treatment.
9. What forms of payment do you accept?
     We happily accept cash, visa, mastercard and checks. There is a $5 discount for paying cash!
