What happens during a massage?

Danielle by Danielle

If you’ve never had a massage (or have never had a massage at Helix), you may have ¬†questions. For starters, ¬†just what happens during a massage?

How it works:

At your first session, we’ll briefly go over your intake paperwork, possibly do some hands-on assessment, and make a game plan for the day’s session.

Your therapist will step out of the room to allow you to disrobe and get on the massage table, which is dressed with sheets and a blanket. We keep the rooms and tables heated, and your therapist will keep you modestly draped throughout the session. (If undressing is not an option, just let your therapist know as we have suitable techniques we can use.)

During your session, please feel free to ask questions or share feedback. It’s also just fine to say little, relax and tune in to your body.

At the end of your session, your massage therapist will step out to allow you to dress, and then meet you for a brief check-in. She may also offer some suggestions for things you can try at home to support the changes made during the session.
