Q. What should I wear?
A. Wear Comfortable baggy clothes. Towels are used during the treatment and you would need to undress so the problem area is visible so we can get to the area being massaged. During the treatment I use different oils and creams so to avoid any contact with clothing I would recommend removing that item of clothing (for example a shoulder massage would require you to remove your top.) If you feel more comfortable, you can wear a pair of shorts when massaging legs.
Q. Should sports massage hurt?
A.Yes and no. Some discomfort may occur with massage depending on the area and the muscle dysfunction. Pain is a personal emotion, it is different for everyone. A therapist should be sensitive to this and regulate their techniques to get the tissue to respond to the treatment. In some instances to get that tissue to respond it may be a little sensitive but it should not be unbearable. Communication is key at this point! Never feel wrong to shout if you are struggling to unclench your teeth – you know your pain tolerance better than we do and we are always happy to ease up a little.
Q. What is your cancellation policy?
A. It’s quite simple, you need to give us 24 hours notice if you want to avoid paying for a session you can’t make. Why do we do this? For two reasons, firstly there are others who may be desperate to get an appointment, this period allows someone to take the cancelation. The second is our livelihood, when we can’t fill a slot we still have overheads to pay, we lose money and other potential new clients. This notice period is an industry standard.
