What To Expect

What To Expect


If the massage therapy experience is new to you, have no worries.  Here's a brief description of what to expect when receiving a massage at Bodies in Balance

  • Although no two massages are alike, there are some things that are universal. Sessions generally take place in a quiet, comfortable room. It may be dimly lit and soothing music is often played. 
  • The practitioner will begin by asking questions, such as the reason you are seeking massage therapy, any injuries or medical conditions you may have, and any other information that may help them better serve you.  
  • The massage therapist will then excuse himself/herself so you can disrobe to your level of comfort. You will then get on the table under the provided cover and relax, either face up or face down. 
  • You will be draped at all times - only the area being worked on will be exposed. A typical full body session includes your back, arms, legs, feet, hands, head, neck, and shoulders. Oil or lotion is often used.  
  • When the massage is complete, the practitioner will leave the room so you can get dressed. Sit up slowly and, in the hours after your massage, drink plenty of water.
