Massage Table Three Valley Massage

What to expect at your massage session

- You should be prepared for your appointment 10 minutes before it is due to commence.


- Take a shower or bath before your therapist arrives. This is important for hygiene but also will make you feel relaxed, comfortable and more receptive to the massage.


- Do not eat or drink alcohol 2 hours before your massage but drink plenty of water.


- Your massage therapist will ask preliminary questions to determine your overall health and wellness goals.


- If you do not wish your hair to be touched please inform the therapist at the beginning of the session.


- Your therapist will leave the room to give you the privacy you need to remove your clothing, it’s up to you if you choose to undress completely or to leave your underwear. Don’t worry, your therapist will always make sure you are properly covered by a towel or sheet throughout your session.


- Remove any jewellery and your watch if you are wearing one.


- When you are ready, lie down on the massage table and cover yourself with the sheet or other linen from the table. The therapist will knock before re-entering. On occasion the therapist may not be able to leave the room so will avert their eyes.


- Relaxing music might be played. If you find the music distracting or too loud please tell your massage therapist. The same applies to talking during your session.


- Your massage therapist will confirm the pressure and comfort throughout your appointment. If you're uncomfortable at any time do not hesitate to inform your massage therapist.


- Massage therapists use oil or lotion. If you're allergic to oils or lotions you MUST inform your massage therapist beforehand, the onus is on you to do so.


- Depending on your needs, the massage therapist will massage either the full body (except private areas) or only specific areas that need attention, such as especially tight muscles.


- Remember to breathe in a regular and controlled manner as this helps you to relax. On occasion some people hold their breath when a particularly sensitive area is massaged, but it is best to breathe through it.


- At the end of the massage, the therapist will leave the room to allow you to dress in private. Make sure to relax for a few minutes on the table to ground yourself before moving around, especially if you feel light-headed. Then take your time getting ready.


- Gratuity/tips are highly appreciated in recognition of outstanding service, but not expected.
