This is where you can find answers to some commonly asked questions about massage in general and in-home massage in specific.
What should I wear during a massage?
Please be properly covered when you answer the door but feel free to wear as little or as much as you are comfortable with during the massage. Most people undress down to their underpants or get completely naked but it's a personal choice and any clothing can be worked around. For those that want to keep all their clothes on that is also an option but may limit some styles of massage. You will be appropriately draped with a sheet during the entire massage to preserve modesty and follow the law. The most important thing is that you are comfortable during your massage.
Do I need to have a massage table?
You do not need to own your own table, I have one I can bring with me. Please let me know of any stairs or other obstacles I may encounter while bringing the table into the space. And if you do have your own table I'll be happy to use that and you'll receive a $20 discount each time I visit. You can find cheap ones on Amazon.com or Massagewarehouse.com, it could pay off in the long run.
Do I get a discount if I have my own massage table?
Yes! I'll be happy to use any massage table you have (must be a massage table) and you will get a $20 discount for each visit.
Where should we set up the table for a massage?
The space should be big enough to fit the table and have room to walk around. My table is 27" x 73". A space away from children and pets is best as they can get underfoot during the massage. Keep in mind any windows that neighbors may be able to look in through. In good weather it is possible to do the massage outside, some services may not be available outside such as warm bamboo or Himalayan salt stone as they require an outlet to keep them warm.
Will I have to fill out paperwork?
Yes, there are some forms you need to fill out before your first massage or facial. This includes contact information, medical history, cancellation policy and client consent forms. Please allow 10-15 minutes for this.
How early should I expect you to arrive before our scheduled appointment?
For first time clients I will generally arrive 30 minutes before the appointment to answer any questions, have you fill out paperwork and check the area to set up. I will call or text when I arrive or if I'm running late.
For warm bamboo or Himalayan salt stone treatments I will generally arrive 30-45 minutes early as they need some time to heat up before we start.
For repeat clients I will normally arrive 15 minutes early to set up.
How do I know if I'm in your service area?
I service most of lower Fairfield County, CT. You can call or email with your town and I'll let you know if you are in my traveling range.
How long does it take to hear back from you?
I will normally get back to people the same day or next day. If you call, please leave a message with your contact info so I can return the call.
What are your hours?
I work 7 days a week, by appointment only. Weekdays 10-6. Weekends 9-12
What if I don't want a massage in my house?
I do have a location in Milford, CT that I work out of. Feel free to contact me to set up an appointment there. Rates for the Milford location are lower than in-home prices, contact me to find out details.
