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.

Can Therapeutic Massage Help with Migraines?

Migraines are defined as “chronic headaches that can cause significant pain for hours or even days.  Symptoms can be so severe that all you can think about is finding a dark, quiet place to lie down” (Mayo Clinic 2010).  Alternative medicine and treatments such as therapeutic massage therapy have been found to help reduce the severity and frequency of migraine headaches.  At Elements Therapeutic Massage, we can help reduce your stress and tension.  Therapeutic is our middle name! 

 

Migraine and tension headaches have been reported by medical professionals as one of the major pain complaints by their patients.  Stress and tension are two of the main causes of migraine headaches.   One of the best treatment techniques is to spend time each day doing something that helps relax your muscles.  Frequent therapeutic massage can be integrated into your overall wellness plan to help ensure you can keep your muscles relaxed.  Elements Therapeutic Massage has many savings plans to help make frequent massage even more affordable.  Our therapeutic massage studios are staffed by friendly and professional licensed massage therapists that are credentialed with the major insurance companies.  Please ask our knowledgeable front desk staff if we can accept your medical insurance plan.  They can tell you the steps needed to obtain a medical professionals referral for therapeutic massage!
