What to Expect-
We've learned that a lot of people have NEVER had a massage before. This really surprised us. (You guys don't know what you are missing!). Some people had said they were nervous about what areas get massaged during a one hour session, what they were suppose to wear, and what they were supposed to do while getting a massage.
First off, we conduct our services on a professional level. We do not want any of our clients to feel uncomfortable in any way. We do require draping and you will never be exposed. We've heard some therapists have asked if their clients are comfortable with exposing the breast area-
We use a great massage cream by Biotone and because of this; your clothing should be removed "to your comfort level". Most clients tend to remove all clothing, or leave just their underwear on. The massage table is accompanied by sheets and a blanket so you will always remain covered and will not be exposed. We undrape just the area we are working on at the time. When you come in for your massage you will be shown you the room, explain the process, and leave the room so you can privately get undressed and onto the table.

The one hour Swedish massage has a variety of feelings. We use soft effleurage strokes which help spread the massage cream and prep the skin for the deeper petrissage technique.

In respect to all clients please remember your massage starts at the time scheduled and lasts for the time duration scheduled (ie: half hour, hour, hour and a half). We will need to end the massage as scheduled to be on time for the following client. Please show up a few minutes before the scheduled time to allow time for undressing and so the massage can start on time. If you happen to show up late, please understand in order to keep the following appointments on time, you may lose out on a few minutes of your massage. If we cause the session to start late, we will make up for it by giving you as much time as possible of your scheduled session time.
All massages are customized to meet your needs. Beginning from the type of massage (Swedish, Deep Tissue, or Prenatal), to the length (half hour, hour, hour and a half), to the desired pressure (soft, medium, or firm), to the areas you do/do not want worked on. The massage is designed unique to achieve what you are looking for. Come on in and see for yourself! :)
Please note: If your appointment time is 4:30 that means your actual massage starts at 4:30. You should show up 5-
