If this is your first massage with RBM&W (or ever) please arrive about 15 minutes early so we can discuss your health, your goals and I can show you what we will be doing for our session. You will receive a copy of the massage therapy policies and will be asked to sign the consent stating that you have read the information, understand it, and agree to comply with the professional massage therapy policies and procedures. Clients who we have not seen for at least a year will also be asked to fill out this form.
If you would like to receive a massage following a workout, please shower before your massage.
I will show you into the massage studio and then leave the room to allow you to undress to your comfort level and get onto the table. Once you are undressed, on the table, and under the sheets and blanket, I will knock to make sure you are ready, come back into the room, and begin the session. I generally work with some sort of soft music playing, but I will gladly change the music or work in silence if you prefer. I will check in with you about pressure, temperature, and general comfort, but please remember that only you can feel what is going on inside your own body, and that you should feel free to tell me if anything is at all painful or uncomfortable.
This is your time, dedicated to your well being. It's all about you. Try not to focus on anything other than relaxing and enjoying your moment.
