Upon arrival to the office, the therapist will ask you to fill out a medical history form
and ask you to
identify areas you feel tension and areas you wish no work done. The therapist will then discuss a
treatment plan, what your expectations will be, and how to best get those results.
In the treatment room you will be asked to undress to your comfort level and then recline on the table
under the draping. The room will be comfortably lighted, warm, and inviting. Music is generally soft
and relaxing, but feel free to bring your own iPod, or choose from the music library.
At the start of the massage a bolster under your knees will be placed for comfort. The sequence of the
massage will be different for each client and situation. Generally a Swedish Relaxation massage begins
face-up starting with the scalp, then the face, neck, abdomen, arms, and legs. The therapist will then
ask you to turn over and onto your belly where the back and legs will then be massaged. It is important
to remember that only the area being massaged will be uncovered. The other areas will be comfortably
draped, warm, and relaxed.
If at any point the massage feels too light or too deep please make sure to speak up. This massage is all
about you after all, and therefore you should enjoy it!
