Your First Visit to a Massage Therapy Clinic
Massage Therapy is very beneficial to your health, and after a hard day of work we often say, “I really could use a massage”. We tend to say this within ear-shot of our spouse in hopes of a miracle that they will respond with a nice massage. The fact is that both spouses could benefit from a Massage Treatment.
The biggest obstacle for many in getting a massage doesn’t have anything to do with time, or money. It has to do with fear. We fear what we don’t know. If you’ve never had a massage, you don’t know what to expect. Below outlines what to expect in detail.
Here’s what to expect at your first visit to a Massage Therapy clinic.
ARRIVE AT THE CLINIC
When you arrive you will be given a Medical History form similar to one that you would fill out at the Doctors office. The Therapist needs to know any medical conditions that you have.
After the form is completed the Massage Therapist will review any medical conditions with you in your own private treatment room. The therapist will also ask you the areas that are most painful or tight and ask you if there are any areas that you don’t want the Therapist to work on. For Example; if your feet are super ticklish you may not want the therapist to work on your feet. The Therapist may also discuss lotion and oil preferences.
Your Therapist will then instruct you to disrobe down to your comfort level. This is truly up to you. It is highly suggested to fully disrobe; this allows the Therapist to work all areas of the body. Your private areas will be covered with a towel or sheet at all times.
The Therapist will leave the room and allow you to disrobe in private. You can place your clothes and personal belongings on the hangers and hooks provided. Then get on the table, lying face down. Position yourself so that your face is comfortable in the Face Cradle (horseshoe opening) attached to the table. Then be sure to cover yourself with the provided towel or sheet.
After a few moments the Therapist will knock to make sure you’re ready before entering the room. At this time the therapist may move or fold back areas of the sheet, and start the massage treatment.
Depending on your treatment, part way through the massage the Therapist may ask you to turn over, face up. The Therapist will place extra towels next to you so that as you turn over you may place the towels over your private areas. Also, while you are turning over the therapist will raise a sheet in front of them until you have positioned the towels over you, and then they will place the sheet back over your body.
RECOMPOSE AND REDRESS
Once the Treatment ends, the therapist will exit the room and allow you to collect your thoughts and time to get dressed. Once you’re ready, you may exit the Treatment room.
At Kudzu Body Clinic, we have setup the bathroom to allow you to brush or comb your hair before exiting the Clinic. After you’ve put yourself back together, you can proceed to the Receptionist to finalize your payment.
SCHEDULE NEXT APPOINTMENT
After your first visit, you’ll understand why massage is so beneficial for your body. You’ll want to make an appointment for your next visit so that you can continue to enjoy the benefits of massage.
