Massage therapist NOT masseuse- A massage therapist is a licensed professional who has gone through a good deal of education and training in order to provide you with a therapeutic massage.  A masseuse is often untrained and unlicensed and provides services more fitting to a brothel than a spa.

Communicate - If you don't like something, you have to let me know in order for it to change.  Don't be afraid to speak up about things like techniques, music, heat, etc.  If I have the table warmer on and you are hot, let me know to turn it off.  If you are still hot, let me know to remove the blanket.  If you feel pain, absolutely let me know!  Pain is NOT a normal part of a massage, but rather your body's way of telling you that something is wrong and needs to be changed

Arrive On Time -  What time that is depends on what kind of spa it is, whether you've been before, and what kind of experience you want to have. If you are 15 mins behind, we have to cut short your session. 

Drapping:. Massage therapists are trained to respect boundaries and use proper draping techniques, so either should be fine.


Sick - This is for your protection and my own.  Getting a massage while sick can make you feel worse by pushing the illness through your body more quickly.  Fever is also a contraindication for a massage, meaning that you should not receive massage if you have on




DON'T even joke about sex! Just don't.  It's not funny, it's offensive.  Yes... I have heard both of these before, and more. You should always be UNDER the sheet.  


To Talk Or Not To Talk. You can talk during the treatment or be still, as you choose.In general, try to use a quiet "spa voice" when you talk anywhere in the spa.
