How to prepare for your home visit
Most homes can accommodate the space required for a massage table. A living room or kitchen usually has enough space, but for those who have limited space, we also have an ergonomic massage chair is which also suitable for clients with limited mobility who may struggle to get on and off a massage table.
Parking is essential. Please ensure you have somewhere close by if you don’t have a private drive or parking space. This is required for loading and unloading of equipment.
Fill out your consultation form prior to your massage, this saves time on the day and doesn’t take up valuable treatment time. Adjust the lighting and temperature in the room where you will receive your treatment to make sure you are completely comfortable.
You are very welcome to play music during your treatment or if prefer silence then that is fine too, just let your therapist know at the beginning of your session. If you’d like to burn some incense or light a few candles then this is entirely your preference, whatever helps you to relax and soak up all the goodness from your session.
Don’t eat just before a massage session. Let your body digest your meal first.
What to expect
Your therapist will ask you a few questions and ask that you complete the client consultation form, if you haven’t so done yet, so we can provide the best service to your needs.
Please make your therapist is aware of any injuries and allergies and areas that you want your therapist to focus on. Continue to communicate throughout the treatment if required to request a change in pressure or if you feel any pain.
Before your massage starts you will remove your clothes and lie on the table covered by a towel. Underwear such as briefs, boxers and knickers should be worn as a matter of hygiene and policy. Your therapist will use massage oils and lotions to gently release areas of tension.
During the treatment
Be as receptive and open to the massage process as possible.
During the massage session, report any discomfort, whether it’s from the massage or due to any problems or distractions related to the environment, e.g., room temperature, music volume, lighting, etc.
Give your therapist feedback during the massage on the amount of pressure, etc. If anything happens that you dislike or seems improper, you have the right to ask the therapist to stop. If necessary, you also have the right to end the session.
Don’t be afraid to discuss any apprehensions or concerns. It’s important that you are as comfortable as possible during your massage. Your therapist is dedicated to do their best to help you feel at ease.
Remember to breathe normally. Breathing helps facilitate relaxation. People often stop or limit their breathing when they feel anxious or a sensitive area is massaged.
Relax your muscles and your mind. Tightening up by contracting or hardening your muscles during the massage is counterproductive. Let your therapist know if this is happening. They may need to adjust the massage technique they use and may also be able to help you relax the affected area.
If you find your thoughts are racing during the massage, one way to be more centered and to quieten your mind is to follow the movements of your therapist’s hands and focus on how the touch feels.
After the treatment
Don’t get up to quickly and get dressed. If you’re dizzy or light headed after the massage, do not get off the table too fast and please let your therapist know when that happens. It also may take a little time to integrate or absorb the results of the massage session.
Hydration is important following a massage so drink extra water after your massage. This will help aid in the recovery of tissues, especially following deeper tissue work.
Deep Tissue and Sports Massage can incur pain afterwards which subside after 24-48 hours.
Even after a Relaxing Therapeutic Massage, which has a light touch, you may still feel slightly sore in places where tension was released.
Should you feel any aches after your treatment, take a warm bath and again be sure to drink plenty of water and do some stretching. If you’ve been experiencing a lot of stress you may feel more emotional, so it’s important to make time to rest.
Regular treatments are recommended to ensure a healthy body and mind. You can make further bookings directly with your therapist or contact us here.
