Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to add gratuity?
No, I do not accept gratuities. If you feel the need to compensate me beyond what the session costs, please take a business card and give it to someone else whom you think could use my help. :)
Should I get completely naked for my session?
I tell clients to undress to his or her level of comfort, but keep in mind that the type of massage I perform uses long gliding strokes on the skin. This kind of movement cannot be done over clothing. If some of your problem areas include the lower back, hips, or glutes (buttocks) tight-fitting underwear can inhibit the level of work that can be done to those areas. If you must wear underwear during the massage, a thong for women or briefs for men would be ideal. You will be properly covered or draped during the entire massage. Only the area being massaged will be uncovered.
If you are receiving a medical massage treatment, you will not have a to disrobe, but I will need to uncover the body region that needs the treatment. It is best to wear a swimsuit or workout gear (sports bra, running shorts, etc) underneath your clothes.
Should I talk to the massage therapist during the massage?
It is completely up to you whether you want to talk or just close your eyes and relax. Remember, this session is about YOU. However, there does need to be open communication during the massage. If the pressure is too deep or too light, please let me know. If you are cold or hot, please let me know. I want you to be able to relax and let go of stress, not be worried about insulting my skills.
If you are receiving a medical massage treatment, I will need feedback from you. Medical massage is not for relaxation, it is to treat your injury. You should expect dialogue during the session.
Why should I choose mobile massage?
Mobile massages are fast gaining popularity because it is most convenient for clients. In today’s fast paced world, more people want to avoid the hassle of going through a commute and through traffic, and opt for massage therapists to come to them instead. This way they can be in a relaxed state before beginning the massage and stay in a relaxed state after the massage. People are also most comfortable in known surroundings, and feel more at ease in their homes when getting massages done. Also most massage salons or spas have a 9 am to 6 pm schedule, which makes it challenging for people to make it after work. And getting appointments on holidays is also quite difficult, so mobile massage therapists adjust their schedules to meet yours.
