What happens during my first visit ?
Please make yourself known to the main reception at Horfield Leisure Centre. Our Massage Therapist will greet you and give you a consultation form to complete, this is a short questionnaire which establishes you are safe to receive massage and enables the massage therapist to adapt the session to your specific needs
What happens during the treatment ?
After a brief chat regarding the consultation sheet the Massage Therapist will leave the room for a few minutes and you will be asked to get undressed and to get comfortable on the Massage couch, you will be covered under a blanket. Towels are used throughout the session to keep you warm and comfortable. You can leave your underwear on and the therapist will work around you. It is fine to chat during the treatment but the therapist will not initiate conversation. After the treatment the therapist will tell you the treatment has finished and will leave the room to give you privacy to get dressed
After the treatment how will i feel ?
After the treatment most people feel very relaxed and feel a real sense of relieve from their long term aches and pains. Initially some people can feel a new energy and productivity surge which can last a few days. Some people can feel slowed down and needing to catch up on sleep for a day or so. Deep Tissue Massage can cause you to be a little sore the next day so its good to take a good soak in a warm bath to ease this. Its important to rehydrate after a massage so its advised to drink a couple of glasses of water to keep your tissues healthy
