Receiving a Massage

  • Massage may not be a part of everyday life for you, and you may feel uneasy or shy about receiving your first massage. It is important to recognize the goal of massage is to create a comfort level that will relax all of the senses. The utmost quiet will enhance the complete state of relaxation. After receiving your first massage, we’re quite confident that you’ll receive many more in the future.
  • Allow your therapist to move your limbs into position. Relax your arms, legs and head unless the therapist requests your assistance.
  • Please DO provide feedback in regards to the amount of pressure you prefer or need. (Deeper pressure vs. lighter pressure)
  • Please DO ASK Questions about the procedures. Our therapists are well trained, ethical and professional. It is our goal that you are comfortable and well informed.
  • Tell the therapist about areas of your body that are injured, sore or tense.
  • During the session, close your eyes and allow yourself to relax to the soothing music. Focus your attention on breathing slowly and deeply.

After the Massage
Please feel free to enjoy the state of relaxation and lie still for just a few more moments. Then slowly and carefully get up.
Please drink plenty of water before and after any spa treatments received. It is important to keep hydrated. An additional glass or two of water immediately following a massage may be of benefit to decrease the possibility of soreness.
Bottled water is available from room service. Please let the front desk know prior to your stay if you would like to have water stocked in your room.
