Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How far in advance should I schedule an appointment?
A: It is best to schedule your appointments well in advance as evening and weekend spaces do fill quickly. We recommend that you call or email us to schedule your services, please provide several dates and times that would be convenient.
Q: Is Massage therapy covered by insurance? Is medical massage tax-exempt?
A: At this time most insurance carriers do not cover massage therapy. However, if you have a Flexible Medical Spending Account through your employer or a Health Savings Account, massage therapy can be reimbursed. Check with the administrator at your place of employment for requirements.

Q: What should I wear?
A: Some of our services recommend loose fitting clothing. Please inquire at the time of booking.
Q: Is There Suppose To Be Pain?
A: Massage on healthy tissue feels good. As your body becomes relaxed, pressure may gradually be increased in specific areas to relieve muscular tension. Because everyone has a different tolerance for touch, it is important that you communicate immediately if you feel any discomfort. Your massage therapist will not be offended if you ask that the pressure be adjusted to your preference level.
Q: What to Expect After a Massage
A: Massage can be a deeply relaxing experience that can affect all your body systems. After the session has concluded, and your therapist has left the room, give yourself a few moments to reorient before slowly rising from the massage table. Many people report freedom from long term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness and greater productivity that can last for a few days.
Since toxins are released from your soft tissues during a massage, it is recommended that you drink plenty of water for 24 to 48 hours following your massage. Sometimes you may not feel dramatic results right away. Watch for changes over the following days, such as pain relief, increased mobility or reduced stress. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us. We will be happy to answer any questions that you may not have thought of during your visit
