Where Will My Massage Session Take Place?
Your massage session will take place in a warm, comfortable, quiet room. Soft music will be played to help you relax. You will lie on a table specifically designed for your comfort.
Who Will Perform the Massage or Bodywork?
At Elements, you can be sure your session will be conducted by a professional who has received proper training. All of our therapists are licensed by the state of Wisconsin.
Must I Be Completely Undressed?
Most massage techniques are traditionally performed with the client unclothed; however, it is entirely up to you what you want to wear. You should undress to your level of comfort. You will be conservatively draped during the entire session.
Will the Practitioner Be Present When I Disrobe?
The massage therapist will leave the room while you undress, relax on the table and cover yourself with a clean sheet and blanket.
Will I Be Covered During the Session?
You will be properly draped at all times to keep you warm and comfortable. Only the area being worked on will be exposed.
What Parts of My Body Will Be Massaged?
You and the massage therapist will discuss the desired outcome of your session. This will determine which parts of your body require massage. A typical full body session will include work on your back, hips, arms, legs, feet, hands, head, neck and shoulders. You will not be touched on or near your genitals (male or female) or breasts (female).
How Long Will the Session Last?
A full-body massage session lasts 1 hour. This includes time for a brief intake and time for you to undress (about 50 minutes on the table). Many people prefer 90 or 120 minutes for optimal relaxation.
What Will the Massage Feel Like?
Your massage should feel relaxing if you choose Swedish massage and stress reducing if you choose a Deep Tissue massage. Massage is performed with lotion or oil (for hot stones) to reduce friction on your skin.
