What to expect

Meet and Greet

Once you arrive at Zing Massage Therapy, I will greet you downstairs and then show you upstairs to the reception area. I will then ask you to fill out a Massage Intake form. The Massage Intake form is where you record any medical history, past/present injuries and other physical conditions that I should be made aware of. 

Plan aheadIt's helpful to arrive 5 minute's early for your appointment. This will give you time to complete your paperwork.


Starting your Session

I will take you into the treatment room where a comfortable massage table awaits. An area for your personal belongings and a chair are provided for your use. I will inquire about the reason(s) you are coming in for a massage, your current physical condition and any specific areas in which you are experiencing pain or would like to address during your massage.

I will leave the room and wait outside while you undress to your level of comfort (usually just to your underwear, depending on type of treatment). Once undressed, you will lie on the massage table, under the towel. I will give you a few minutes for this process and will knock on the door to ask if you are ready before entering your room.

You will always be draped with the towel during your massage session. Massage etiquette is to only uncover the part of the body that we are working on, ensuring that your modesty is respected at all times.

You can expect a comfortable environment during your massage. There will be music playing, unless you request otherwise.

Sound Advice:
Some people like to talk during a massage. Some prefer to relax without conversation. Do what feels best. I will follow your lead.


During your Massage

Before beginning the session, I  will ask you to alert me, at any time during the session, a technique or stroke that I am using is uncomfortable. Depending on your specific needs or requests, I will either perform a customized full-body massage (for general relaxation and stress reduction) or focus on the specific parts of your body that you have requested. 

Communicate:  This is your customized massage. If you have feedback on pressure, room temperature, lighting… let me know.


Ensuring your Wellness

Once your massage therapy session is complete, I will leave the room so you may re-dress. I will wait in the office and will leave a glass of water for you just outside the room. Zing Massage Therapy sessions vary from 30mins, 45mins, 60mins or 90mins in length. Each session includes a pre-interview and time at the end for you to re-dress.  I look forward to seeing you for your first visit.

Hydrate:  Water flushes out the minerals that were released during your massage while rehydrating your muscles and reducing potential soreness.
