Your massage questions answered

Do I need to have a shower before my massage?

We recommend it but it’s not essential, the oils and lotions used in your massage will absorb better onto clean dry skin and also the longer they stay on the skin after your treatment the better. If your treatment is in the evening a lovely soak in the tub before your massage will have you ready for a great night’s sleep post treatment. Don’t have time for a quick shower, don’t worry just relax and enjoy!

 

 

Should I shave my legs before my massage?

Massage therapists are among the least judgmental people you will ever meet! We absolutely couldn’t care less if your legs are hairy or any other body hair for that matter. Our only focus is bringing you renewed health so you can feel and function your best no matter your shape, size, age or conditions.

 

 

Where is the best place in the house to have my massage?

All we require is a 6ft space to set our massage couch up in, we bring everything we need. Preferably the room should be warm or at a temperature that’s comfortable for you to relax in, feel free to close the curtains or blinds before we come for privacy and to create a cosy atmosphere.

 

 

How much do I take off or leave on?

This is up to you, we recommend just leaving underwear on. Before you undress the therapist will leave to room allowing you privacy to undress and knock before entering the room to begin your massage. Your comfort and privacy are a priority and you will be covered appropriately during massage at all times. We do provide disposable paper pants if requested.

 

 

Not sure which massage to choose or if massage is allowed due to health concerns?

If you have any concerns at all just drop an email or call and speak with a fully qualified massage therapist who can alleviate your concerns. Should you be going through medical treatment please follow the advice from your health professional. Choosing your massage, if it’s your first massage or you’re not sure which would be of most benefit then book The Signature Massage and leave a note in the booking section, your therapist can customise you’re treatment depending on the areas of concern etc.

 

 

Should I tip my therapist?

This is entirely at your discretion, it is not compulsory but if you wish to thank your therapist for a great massage please do so.

 

 

Will I get oil in my hair?

If you would rather we avoid getting oil in your hair please let your therapist know. As a tip from the massage therapist we prefer unclean hair that doesn’t mind a bit of oil (it’s really good for your hair!) as we can really get into the back of your neck during massage and deliver a kick ass scalp massage. When it comes to removing the oils from the scalp we recommend you put shampoo directly onto the hair and massage into the hair and scalp (before the water bit). This breaks down the oil and make it easier to remove.

 

 

Pet’s in your home

Can we ask that all your little fur babies be kept out of the room while your massage is being performed, for our therapists comfort/allergies etc.

 

 

Can I drink alcohol before or after my treatment?

We ask that you refrain from alcohol prior to your massage treatment and drink plenty of water post massage.

 

 

Bathroom breaks?

Please do let us know if you need to use the bathroom during your massage treatment, we would much rather an unscheduled break than you feel uncomfortable during your treatment.
