Preparing for your professional therapeutic massage.
Before your appointment please click here to see a copy of the consultation form I will ask you to complete. If you have any of the health conditions mentioned on this form please contact me to check that the treatment you choose is suitable for you. In some cases I may require you to gain consent from your GP or other healthcare professional prior to treatment. Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions prior to your treatment. If you are feeling unwell or are suffering with cough, cold or flu symptoms please respect me by re-scheduling your appointment.
Before your treatment
Upon arrival I will ask you to fill in my consultation form, which asks about your past and current health. This consultation is confidential and will ensure that there are no medical conditions that may make massage unsuitable. The consultation will typically take 10 minutes at your first appointment and then 5 minutes in any following sessions to update any change in your health. I will explain your treatment fully and give you a chance to ask any questions. I will then leave the room, giving you privacy to undress and make yourself comfortable on the massage couch. Please leave your underwear on I will work around it. Ladies it may be easier and more comfortable to remove your bra for full body treatments. This is your preference, please do what you are comfortable with. Large towels are used to cover the body, and only the area of the body which is being worked on will be uncovered to maintain your modesty at all times.
During your treatment
I will help you to get comfortable on the couch using some support cushions. The couch has a heated pad for additional comfort and relaxation, the heat level can be adjusted to suit you or turned off if you prefer. I use sweet almond oil as base oil, if you would like an alternative please advise me. Relaxing music will be played during the treatment to help you to relax and sink into the massage. Please feel free to ask for silence if you prefer. Please turn off your mobile phone or put it to silent; this is so we are not distracted during your treatment.
After your treatment
I will leave the room and allow you time and privacy to get up slowly, have a drink of water and get dressed. After leaving try and keep yourself warm and remain in a relaxed state for as long as possible to feel the full benefit of the treatment. I will provide you with a leaflet giving after care advice, for example it is advisable to drink plenty of water after a treatment as it can help the body to flush out toxins.
The length of your visit will depend on the treatment you select. Please visit the table on the home page to understand the length of your treatment and make allowances for consultation and getting dressed afterwards.
I will arrive at your home and set up my massage couch, bringing all towels, oils and music with me to provide a relaxing experience in the comfort of your own home. For holistic and deep tissue massage I will set up a couch and need room to work around it – if you have a floor space in your house which is approximately 2.5m long by 1.5m wide then you have enough room. Please contact me if you are unsure if you have enough room. You will get the most from your relaxing treatment if the space you have available is warm and quiet.
I offer on site massage therapy at your place of work and will tailor a package to suit your corporate needs, please contact me to discuss your individual requirements.
I do have arrangements at some beautiful local treatment rooms. Please ask me about the availability of these if you would like to add a luxury location to your treatment. I can also arrange to use local treatment rooms if you don’t think you have space or privacy at your own home.
I take payment in advance of the treatment. You can pay using cash, gift voucher or by BACS transfer into my bank account – my bank details will be provided on request. I can also take payments by PayPal.
