MASSAGE TREATMENTS

Frequently Asked Questions

Prepare a space for the massage bed, these are about 6ft long and 2ft wide with clearance around the bed for the therapist to move freely. It may help to put the heating on to warm up the space beforehand. This ensures you are comfortable throughout the treatment. Please provide a pillow, 2 large and 1 small (hand) towel for your treatment.

Your therapist will bring a massage table, a bolster (to support your legs), a selection of essential oils and a selection of relaxing music to play during your treatment. If you wish to have no music or to provide your own, that’s absolutely fine.

We would advise having a hot shower or bath before your massage. This can help you to relax your muscles before treatment begins. This may also help improve muscle recovery after the massage!

We want your experience to be a relaxing one, therefore we would recommend that our mobile therapist sets up in a room that is private and warm. Being free from distractions is key to getting the most from your treatment so we recommend turning off devices in the treatment area. You may wish to draw the curtains/close blinds or dim lights if you find it easier to relax in a darker space.

You may wish to burn scented candles or oils during your treatment to help you unwind and create a spa-like environment.

Our massages techniques include the use of oils, so we recommend that you undress to your underwear for the treatment or simply to a level you are comfortable with. You will be properly draped under a towel/sheet during the entire session.

On arrival, your therapist will prepare the bed, music and oils and then they will step outside so you can get undressed in privacy. At the end of the treatment, your therapist will leave the room to allow you to get up at your own pace and get dressed.

Please note, it is required that underwear is worn throughout all treatments.

You and the therapist will discuss the desired outcome of your session. This will determine which parts of your body require massage. A typical full body session will include work on your back, arms, legs, feet, hands, head, neck, and shoulders. You will not be touched on or near your genitals (male or female) or breasts (female).

Please specify when making your booking if you have any special requests regarding your treatment. Your therapist will complete a consultation form prior to the treatment in order to tailor your treatment to your specific needs.

We require the completion of a medical history form on our site prior to your first treatment and this must be kept up to date as and when your circumstances change. Ensure your therapist is aware of any injuries and allergies you have and areas of your body you wish for them to give extra attention to. 

Discuss with your therapist the pressure you wish to be applied before and during the treatment and feel free to let them know if you wish for it to change.

We advise that you seek advice from a Medical Practitioner regarding whether massage therapy is appropriate for certain medical conditions.

It depends on the techniques used. Many massage therapists use a form of Swedish massage, which is often a baseline for practitioners. In a general Swedish massage, your session may start with broad, flowing strokes that will help calm your nervous system and relax exterior muscle tension. 

As your body becomes relaxed, pressure will gradually be increased to relax specific areas and relieve areas of muscular tension. If you have requested a specific kind of message such as deep-tissue or Indian head massage then the treatment and pressure will vary from a standard massage.

Often, a light oil or lotion is used to allow your muscles to be massaged without causing excessive friction to the skin. The oil also helps hydrate your skin.

You should communicate immediately if you feel any discomfort so that another approach may be taken. Massage is most effective when your body is not resisting.

Your therapist will leave the room while you undress and lie on the bed on your stomach with the towel over you. They will then work through the requested treatment, working on each part of the body while ensuring that the rest is covered by the towel. They will assist you in turning under the towel when necessary.

During the massage, make yourself comfortable. The therapist will either gently move you or tell you what is needed throughout the session (such as lifting your arm). Many people just close their eyes and completely relax, communicating if/when they need more or less pressure, another blanket, or anything else relevant to the session.

The therapist may speak with you regarding pressure and your general comfort. This is so they can make sure you are completely happy with the treatment. Please let your therapist know during your consultation at the beginning of your treatment if you would prefer for it to be carried out in complete silence.

When you reach the end of your treatment, your therapist will let you know and leave the room to allow you to rise in your own time. They will then pack up their bed and equipment and leave you to relax in your home.

Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience freedom from long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity which can last for days.

Massage can help release chronic muscular tension and pain, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce mental and physical fatigue and stress, promote faster healing of injured muscular tissue, improve posture, and reduce blood pressure. Massage and bodywork is also known to promote better sleep, improve concentration, reduce anxiety and create an overall sense of well-being.

Yes. It’s imperative that, before you begin your session, the practitioner asks general health questions. It is very important that you inform the practitioner of any health problems or medications you are taking. If you are under a doctor’s care, it is required that you receive a written recommendation for massage or bodywork prior to any session. Your therapist will require a recommendation or approval from your doctor.
