Things your Breezeway Massage Therapist Wants You To Know

Stay in communication with us

  • Please tell us if a technique hurts. If there is extreme muscle tension,  you might experience some pain, so just let us know!
  • Not every client likes every technique or style of work, so please let us know if you do not enjoy part of your massage.
  • Bathroom breaks can happen! If you need to take a moment for any reason, we are more than happy to accommodate. 

 

We are not here to judge your body.

  • We are focusing on the deeper structures: fascia and muscle tissue, and not thinking about cellulite, stretch marks, or any other items you might be concerned about.
  • Your Massage Therapist is the last person you should shave your legs for. 

 

Sometimes we will make recommendations for your health.

  • These suggestions are based on what you have told us about your lifestyle and pain, as well as what we noticed during your massage.
  • We might recommend some stretches or even a specific yoga class to further help with any issues.
  • If you can honor these recommendations it will likely extend that wonderful post massage feeling!

 

Please arrive before or as close to your start time as possible.

  • We often have another massage booked right after yours, so starting late can affect more than just the Massage Therapist’s schedule.
  • We want you to be able to receive your full massage.

 

You can wear what you are comfortable in.

  • Some people choose to leave their undergarments on and others choose to fully undress for their massage.
  • We are trained in draping techniques to make sure you are comfortably covered during your massage.
  • For some modalities like Ashiatsu, it is easier for the Massage Therapist if you fully undress, but remember to only undress to your comfort level.
  • There are other modalities, like Sports Massage, where your Massage Therapist might ask you to bring athletic clothes.

 

Feel free to ask us questions.

  • During your massage, you might wonder “Why would that spot hurt” or “Could that be why I’ve been getting headaches”. If you’d like more information, just ask!
  • Keep in mind we are not doctors so we cannot diagnose but we do have knowledge of the human body that can help assess what might be going on.

 

What to expect after your massage…

  • You might experience some dehydration, so make sure to drink plenty of water after your massage.
  • You may feel sore for a couple of days but if you feel sore for more than 3-4 days please let your Massage Therapist know and we will make some alterations for your next massage.
