Massage Frequently Asked Questions
Can I just walk into the office and receive a massage?
No, all massages must be scheduled with Sonja as least one day in advance.
Are there any medical conditions that would make massage inadvisable?
Yes, that's why it's imperative that before you begin your session that Sonja will ask you general health questions. It is very important that you inform her of any health conditions that you have or any medications that you are currently taking. If you are under a doctor's care, we advise that you receive written approval from them prior to any session.
Where will my massage take place?
Your massage will take place in our office's beautiful, comfortable and relaxing massage room. Soft music can be played to help you relax while you lie on a massage table specifically designed for your comfort.
Must I be completely undressed?
Most massage techniques are traditionally performed with the client unclothed. However, you may decide what amount of clothing you prefer to wear for your own comfort.
Will Sonja be present when I disrobe?
No, Sonja will leave the room while you undress, relax on the table and cover yourself with a warm sheet or blanket.
Will I be covered during my session?
Yes, you will be properly draped at all times to keep you warm and comfortable. Only the area being worked on will be exposed.
What parts of my body will be massaged?
You will discuss the desired outcome of your session with Sonja. This will help determine which parts of your body will require massage.
How long will my session last?
A full body massage lasts 60 minutes. A 30 minute session only allows time for a partial massage such as neck and shoulders, back or legs and feet.
What do I do during my massage?
That's an easy one, just make yourself comfortable! Sonja will either gently move you or tell you what is needed throughout the session, such as lifting your arm, turning your head, etc. Many people just close their eyes and completely relax while others like to talk with Sonja during their session. Feel free to ask Sonja questions about your massage in general or about the particular technique you are receiving.
