What is the first appointment like?

When you arrive, you will fill out a health intake form and proceed to our Quiet Room where you will be able to relax until it is time for your massage.  You will then be taken back to a treatment room where your therapist will go over your completed health intake form.  The session will be conducted by a professional who has received the proper training as well as his/her North Carolina State license in massage therapy.  Most massage techniques are traditionally performed with the client unclothed; however, you may decide what amount of clothing you prefer to wear for your own comfort.  The practitioner will leave the room while you undress, relax onto the table, and cover yourself with a clean sheet.  Throughout the session, you will be properly draped or covered.  Only the area being worked on will be exposed.  A light oil or lotion may be used to permit your muscles to be worked on without causing excessive friction to the skin.  Many people prefer a 60– to 90–minute session for optimal relaxation.
