Getting The Most Out of Your Massage
You can help get the most out of your session by arriving on time so we can ensure each client gets the attention they deserve. Before your massage it is best to let your therapist know what you like and what you want. Let your therapist know if the room is too cold or warm for your comfort, or if you would like the music louder or softer.
Some clients like to chat during their session and others prefer it to be quiet, it is perfectly ok to do either. Don’t be shy, feel free to insist on getting exactly what you need, including silence. You won’t hurt anyone’s feelings if you share your preferences in a clear and pleasant way. Your satisfaction is our number one priority!

Aromatherapy is the use of plant oils to alleviate physical and psychological disorders. They work in two ways: through massage and skin absorption, and through inhalation and the respiratory system. The therapeutic effects of aromatherapy oils vary; some oils have an sedative effect while others are more stimulating. Aromatherapy can help you achieve the state of mind and body you desire. Aromatherapy relaxes tight and tense muscles and facilitates stimulation of blood and lymph circulation.
