You’ll sit down with your RMT and review your intake form. This can include:
Absolutely not! It is your decision whether you'd like casual conversation or complete quiet.
If you request quiet, know that your therapist will still need to occasionally check in on the pressure and to instruct you to move if necessary.
While massage often involves the use of oil or lotion directly on the skin, you can choose to keep your clothes on if this is more comfortable.
Let us know your preference on your intake form or during your first appointment. You can discuss which articles of clothing you’d like to keep on and what areas of the body you prefer to have treated—with or without oil or lotion. Ultimately, we’re here for you and can adapt to what feels most comfortable to you.
We require 24 business hours notice to cancel your appointment, otherwise you’ll be charged a cancellation fee (find more information under the "Cancellation Policy" Tab)

Some people experience muscle soreness after a massage, and others don’t. Post-massage soreness can feel enjoyable or uncomfortable, depending on the person. To relieve post-massage soreness, applying heat for 15 minutes can help, followed by moving the area with some gentle range of motion.
If you have a condition where you’re prone to uncomfortable muscle soreness that you’d like to minimize, your RMT can work with you to find the techniques and pressure that feel most comfortable for you. During your next appointment, tell one of our RMTs how you felt after your last massage in order to help create a treatment plan that best meets your needs.
