YOUR SPA EXPERIENCE
Our goal is to ensure a wonderful Spa experience and your complete satisfaction. Below is information to help you make the most of your time with us.
Your treatment is tailored to suit, you will fill out a client form that indicates if there is any special consideration for your treatment. The therapist will discuss with you the requirements for your treatment. The therapist will ask at various points throughout your massage if you are comfortable, warm and if the pressure is right for you. This is your opportunity to give the therapist feedback so that the treatment is tailored to what you would like to receive. Every person has individual requirements and requires feedback for us to know if you are comfortable, warm and if the pressure is appropriate. Therapists can feel where muscles are tight, but do not know the pain level you are feeling - feedback is essential as the pressure can vary dramatically from client to client. If you have any special requirements we need to know when you book your appointment.
(We tailor all of our treatments to suit, within the realm of the treatment you have chosen. For example: to receive a remedial massage when a relaxation massage/aromatherapy massage or a beauty/body treatment has been booked is not always possible. - it is therapist specific and we book the therapist to suit the booking.)
The build up of toxins in muscles can cause lethargy, headaches, sorness and restricted movement in the muscle. Massage stimulates circulation and the release of toxins from muscles and the lymphatic system which aids the removal of toxins. It is important to drink water after a massage to help the removal of these toxins.
During your massage comfort and pressure can be adjusted to suit you. Please let your therapist know if you prefer firmer or lighter pressure, every body is different and we can tailor the massage to suit.
If you have received a deep tissue or remedial massage, or are feeling sore after your massage, your muscles have been worked to realign the muscle fibres, release adhesions and toxins from the muscle. You may feel sore for a few days post massage especially if you havent had a massage for a long time, this is completely normal - please see http://www.massagetherapy.com/articles/index.php/article_id/630/Why-Am-I-Sore .......for more information.
If you are receiving treatment for a long existing problem, a series of massages could be needed to bring your body back to its 'normal condition'.
Bookings are essential for all treatments. We recommend you book ahead so that you get the time that most suits you.
