What to Expect During Your Massage.....
The first appointment generally begins with the massage therapist asking what prompted you to get a massage,
your current physical condition, medical history, lifestyle, stress level, and painful areas. The therapist may also
ask you about your health goals and what you hope the massage will do to help you achieve those goals.

Some massages, such as those on-site at your place of business, a party or health fair, etc., are done while you
are fully clothed. For this type of massage, often called "seated" massage, you will sit in a specifically designed
portable massage chair. Seated massage is a great way to receive a quick 'tune-up' while remaining clothed but
still receiving the benefits of feeling more relaxed and rejuvenated.
