What do I wear during my massage?
The therapist will excuse themselves from the room so you can disrobe to your comfort level. Generally clients will disrobe to their undergarments. Keep in mind you will be properly draped at all times to keep you warm and comfortable. Only the area being worked on will be exposed.
What parts of my body will be massaged?
You and your therapist will discuss the nature of your visit and the desired outcome. A typical full body session will include your back, neck, shoulders, arms, legs, feet and head.
What should I do during my session?
Make yourself comfortable and relax. Closing your eyes and speaking are optional. Feel free to ask your therapist questions about the massage.
What is my responsibility to my massage therapist?
Before your first session you will be asked to complete a health history questionnaire. We encourage you to fill out the form accurately and honestly. On subsequent visits you should inform your therapist of any changes in your health and review Wellspring’s massage policies including any contraindications you may have.
Communicate with the therapist if the pressure they are using is too much or not enough.
