Once your massage therapy session is complete, your therapist will leave the room so you may re-dress. She will then take you back to the front area when you're ready. Water is available if you desire. Our massage therapy sessions vary from 1-hour to 1 ½-hour in length. In addition, each session will include a 5 minute pre-interview and 5 minutes at the end for you to re-dress.
Be sure to hydrate!
Water flushes out the toxins that were released during your massage while rehydrating your muscles and reducing potential soreness.
Once you arrive at Healing Oasis, our front desk will greet you and ask you to fill out a standard Intake Form and a quick survey. The Intake Form is where you record any medical history, past/present injuries and other physical conditions we should be made aware of. Your massage therapist will greet you and review your Intake Form with you. She 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. Please arrive 15 minutes early for your appointment. This will give you time to complete your paperwork and take a few minutes to relax and unwind.
SPECIALIZING IN DEEP TISSUE THERAPY
Your massage therapist will then take you to a peaceful, spa-like treatment room where a comfortable massage table dressed with a warming blanket and crisp clean sheets awaits. She will discuss with you your particular needs and recommend essential oils for you. You can accept or decline. No pressure. A small box for your personal belongings is provided. Your massage therapist will leave the room and wait outside while you disrobe to your level of comfort but leaving on your underpants. Once disrobed, you will lie on the massage table, under the top sheet. Your massage therapist 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 top sheet during your massage session. The etiquette your massage therapist will follow is to only uncover the part of the body she is working on, ensuring that your modesty is respected at all times.
You can expect a tranquil and comfortable environment during your massage. The massage table is padded and a heating blanket is placed beneath the sheet, which you can have adjusted to your preference. There will be relaxing music playing, unless you request otherwise. Some people like to talk during a massage. Some prefer to relax without conversation. This is your time. Do what feels best. We'll follow your lead.
Before beginning the session, your therapist will ask you to alert them if, at any time during the session, a technique or stroke they are using is uncomfortable. Depending on your specific needs or requests, your massage therapist 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. We use high quality massage oils and only the purest essential oils. This is your customized massage. If you have feedback on pressure, room temperature, lighting… let us know.
