FAQs

How should I prepare?

Always arrive for your massage treatment on time so that you can relax before your treatment. You will be massaged with special herbs and oils, so please don’t wear perfume, heavy aftershave, or strongly scented lotions that might interfere with the treatment.

Can I eat before a treatment?

To get the full benefits of your massage treatment, don’t eat beforehand (especially heavy meals). However, if you are very hungry, it’s better to have a small snack so that you aren’t distracted by a growling stomach during your treatment.

What should I wear?

Please wear something comfortable, such as yoga-style clothing. Since we encourage you to let the oils soak into your skin for a few hours after the massage, don’t wear expensive clothing that could be stained by the oil.

What should I bring to the massage treatment?

Just an open mind! Massage therapies are wonderfully soothing and nurturing, so let yourself relax as your Healing Arts Master takes you into a blissful experience.

Will I be naked during my massage treatment?

We want you to feel as comfortable as possible while receiving your massage, so you can wear underwear if you prefer.

Are the treatments suitable for children?

Yes. All children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, who will need to stay in the massage room for the duration of the massage treatment.

What are the benefits of massage therapy?

Massage is a powerful treatment that heals both physical and emotional pain. Here are just a few of the healing benefits:

  • Soothe tired, overused muscles
  • Release endorphins
  • Improve circulation & lymph flow
  • Relieve PMS
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Enhance immune function
  • Increase flexibility & range of motion
  • Rejuvenate the skin
  • Promote restful sleep
  • Increase energy
  • Diminish chronic pain
  • Relieve stress & anxiety
  • Eliminate toxins
  • Stimulate weak muscles

  • Improve body awareness

What is the ideal frequency of treatment?

It depends on the individual, but we strongly recommend getting a massage treatment at least once a month and twice would be even more beneficial. During a difficult or stressful time in your life, a weekly massage can help immensely.

Will a single massage treatment help me feel better?

Yes, but to receive the most benefits, we recommend getting regular treatments.

How can I get the most from my massage treatment?

Just remember to breathe and let go. Your healing arts master will do the work, so all you need to do is relax. Some people like to repeat a mantra, sutra or affirmation during their massage. We also recommend that you and your therapist set an intention for your treatment at the beginning of the session.

Have the treatment products been tested on animals?

No. All of the oils, herbs, and aromatherapy products we use are 100% natural and haven’t been tested on animals.

Do I need to tell the therapist about any medical conditions?

Yes, it is important for your therapist to be fully aware of all your current medical conditions because in some cases, massage therapy is contraindicated.

Can I get a massage treatment if I’m pregnant?

Yes, but please check with your doctor before you book your treatment. In general, massage therapy is recommended after the first trimester.
