Before the massage
1. How should I prepare for a massage?
Before the massage it is recommended to have a shower and eat a light meal at least an hour and a half in advance.
2. What should I wear?
You should wear clothes that are comfortable and easy to take off. During the therapy you will be in your underwear but the unused areas will be covered so that you never feel exposed.
3. What should I bring?
If you have, bring along your doctor’s recommendation and medical records that are related to your problem.
1. How does the first massage therapy look like?
If you are here for the first time I will survey your conditions, check if I find asymmetries, loss of function and monitor your current range of motion.
2. What should I do during the massage?
You should follow my instructions, concentrate on breathing consistently and try to relax. If it’s more comfortable, it is totally okay to fall asleep.
3. What should I do after the massage?
I will give follow-up instructions. Right after the massage you should have a rest and you should relax. I recommend you to observe how a treatment affects your body.
Time and regularity
1. How long are massage sessions?
It depends on the treated area. It can be 30, 60 or even 90 minutes. Massaging the feet consumes 30 minutes, while the back and the arms together take 60 minutes. (The relaxing massage is 60 minutes long and it covers all areas of the body.) 90 minutes is enough for massaging the whole body thoroughly or having a more complex treatment for example the cupping therapy.
2. How often should I get a massage for lasting results?
It varies from individual to individual but the optimal is once a week. It is recommended to come more often when having acute problems. If the aim is maintaining current condition it is sufficient to come once in two weeks.
Booking and cancellation
1. How far in advance should I book an appointment?
You should book an appointment one week before. You might succeed to book even 1 or 2 days before if there are free dates left. If you have an acute problem that developed suddenly there is an opportunity to schedule an extra appointment out of my work hours.
2. Can I cancel my appointment? if so, how far in advance?
You can cancel your appointment for free if you make it happen at least 24 hours before the treatment. If you do the cancellation within the last 24 hours your next session will cost 50% more.
3. Which payment methods are available?
In the store you can only pay in cash, but you can also choose the opportunity to transfer the money beforehand.
