MASSAGE ETIQUTTTE

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.

DO
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. 

Shower - If there's a shower in the locker room, it's nice to use it before your treatment. It will freshen you up before your treatment. This step is especially important if you've spent time in a hot tub or pool, which has chlorinated water. You wnat to get those chemicals off, not have them massaged in.

Inform - When you make a massage appointment, you will generally get asked if you perfer male or female massage therapist. If you don't have a preference, you are more likely to get a male as many people prefer female therapists. 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.

How Much To Tip? This depends on the spa. In day spas, 15-20% is typical. Many resort spas add on a service fee, not all of which goes to the therapist. If you'd like to give them something extra for exceptional service, you can. If you were given a gift certificate , ask if the tip was included. We accept all major credit cards and cash but no checks.
