What to Expect

If this is your first visit to our clinic for massage therapy, please arrive 5 to 10 minutes before your appointment start time. Your massage therapist will come to the reception area, greet you, and guide you to your massage treatment room.

The therapist will ask you some questions to better understand your goals for the session and for your overall therapy. Once you and your therapist agree on the treatment plan, the therapist will give you instructions to get ready for the massage session. Undress to the level of your comfort, and lay between the sheets under the blanket.

When the hands-on session ends, the therapist will leave the room while you get dressed, and wait in the room for them to return. Your therapist may spend a minute or two discussing the session, or making self-care suggestions, such as stretching instructions or hydration tips. The therapist may also offer you some water before taking you back to the reception area to handle any financial responsibilities.

The day after the massage, you may feel more relaxed, more centered, more grounded, with greater body awareness, experience greater range of motion, and muscle ability. Sometimes, depending on the type of massage you received, you may experience some soreness, anywhere from 24 to 48 hours after your massage. Drink plenty of fluids and, if necessary, take some ibuprofen to take care of the soreness. The symptoms typically resolve within 48 hours after the massage.
