Massage FAQs

Must I be completely undressed?

You should undress to your desired level of comfort. About half of our clients prefer to be completely undressed, while the other half prefers to keep their undergarments on. This is completely up to you. You will undress and dress in the privacy of your massage room and will be securely covered by a blanket and a sheet during your massage session.

What is included in the session time?

A session consists of massage, time for you to dress and undress and time to communicate with the therapist to make your massage truly customized. Each time you visit an Elements Massage™ studio you will go through our service path called The Elements Way®. This is done to ensure each and every massage session you receive from us meets or exceeds your expectations.

How much should I tip?

Many clients are unsure if and/or how much they should tip their massage therapist. We recommend you think of your massage therapist as you would a waiter in a restaurant. Our studios’ therapists love what they do and your tip may reflect your appreciation for their service. We recommend tipping percentages be based on the full price of a regular massage, rather than the discounted price.

How often should I receive a massage?

For those who use massage as preventative care or to manage daily stress, one massage a month is common. Weekly sessions may be desirable if you are receiving massage for injury relief or to relieve chronic tightness that is interfering with your daily life. There are many people who incorporate massage therapy at least twice a month for optimal therapeutic relief.

What does a massage therapist’s license or certification mean?

A license means that a massage therapist has met the requirements and paid the fee to legally practice massage in your city, county and/or state. To obtain a license, a massage therapist will usually have to complete a minimum number of training hours at an accredited or accepted school or training center and will have to undergo a full background check prior to receiving that license. Each state has specific licensing and/or certification requirements for massage therapists.

Will I be covered during the session?

You will be properly covered or draped at all times to keep you warm and comfortable. Only the area being worked on will be exposed. No areas will be exposed without your consent. You should always let your therapist know if you are uncomfortable for any reason during your massage session.

Do you provide massage therapy to Minors?

The benefits of Therapeutic Massage knows no age limit - however minors (children under 18) must be accompanied by or have the consent of a parent or guardian via a written minor consent form.

How long will the session last?

A full-body massage session lasts approximately fifty-five minutes (this includes the time for you to dress and undress).  Many people prefer an 80 minute session for optimal relaxation.

How often shoud I receive a massage?

The answer to this question depends on your reasons for receiving a massage. For those who use massage as preventative care or to manage daily stress, one massage a month is common. Weekly sessions may be necessary if you are receiving massage for injury relief or to relieve chronic tightness that is interfering with your daily life. If this is the case, weekly sessions are essential in order to build on each week's improvements in healing until the desired results have been achieved. For most people, the frequency of massage visits depends on how well it fits into a budget. For this reason, we have several membership options to make it easy for you to afford the benefits of massage on a regular basis.

Must I be completely undressed?

You should undress to your desired level of comfort. About half of our clients prefer to be completely undressed, while the other half prefer to keep their undergarments on. Either way, you are the client and your comfort comes first. Our therapists are trained to work with you in all situations.

What should I do during my massage?

Make yourself comfortable. The therapist will either gently move you or tell you what is needed throughout the session (such as lifting your arm).  Many people close their eyes and completely relax. Feel free to let your massage therapist know if you would like deeper or lighter pressure.  You will feel the maximum benefit if you remain quiet during your massage.

When should I get a massage?

Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to wait until you are stressed or injured to get a massage. Any time is a good time for a massage. Massage is like a health-supplement or preventative care for a person's body and mind. A regular massage is a great way to cope with physical or emotional stress and to keep it from causing discomfort or harm to your body.
