Must I be completely undressed?
Most massage and bodywork techniques are traditionally performed with the client unclothed; however, it is entirely up to you what you want to wear. You should undress to your level of comfort. You will be properly draped for warmth and modesty during the entire session.

Will the practitioner be present when I disrobe?
The practitioner will leave the room while you undress, relax onto the table, and cover yourself with the clean sheet and blanket provided.

Will I be covered during the session?
You will be properly draped at all times to keep you warm and comfortable. Only the area being worked on will be exposed, and only if necessary to do so. Some work is readily done through the drape.

What parts of my body will be massaged?
A typical full-body session will include work on your back, arms, legs, feet, hands, head, neck, and shoulders. Depending on client needs, the massage may include abdominal, facial or scalp work.

What will the massage or bodywork feel like?
A relaxing Swedish massage is often a baseline for clients. In a general Swedish massage, your session may start with broad, flowing strokes that will help calm your nervous system and relax exterior muscle tension. As your body becomes relaxed, pressure will gradually be increased to relax specific areas and relieve areas of muscular tension. Typically, lotion is used to allow your muscles to be massaged without causing excessive friction to the skin. A richer oil may be used to help hydrate extra-dry skin. You should communicate immediately if you feel any discomfort so that another approach may be taken. Massage and bodywork are most effective when your body is not resisting.

What if I need to go to the bathroom during my massage?
Don't panic. It's not unusual. As the body enters a more relaxed state, it is not uncommon for things to start "moving." It becomes less and less relaxing as pressure builds in the bladder, which can really take away from the enjoyment of a massage. Don't be afraid to mention it to your therapist before you become uncomfortable. Typically, your therapist can step out of the room while you dress, use a robe or just wrap the top drape around your body and "toga up" for your trip to the bathroom.

Am I expected to tip my therapist?
RockeLife2.0 provides healthcare services. While appreciation is lovely, tips are often a source of uncertainty and discomfort for both practitioner and client. There are many benefits to keeping things simple. I don't want a small amount of money to keep people from getting the care they need. Rates are intended to be adequate for the therapist and manageable for clients. 

Are there different kinds of massage and bodywork?
There are numerous types of massage and bodywork; various techniques utilize different strokes, including basic rubbing or gliding strokes, rocking movement, stretching, posture and movement re-education, application of pressure to specific points, and more. We can discuss which methods may be most appropriate for you.

What should I do during the massage or bodywork session?
Feel free to ask your practitioner any questions about your upcoming session. During the massage, make yourself comfortable. It is often beneficial to focus on taking slow, deep breaths, and allow your body to sink into the table like a sand bag. The practitioner will either gently move you or ask you for occasional active participation during the session (such as adding resistance when needed). You are welcome to just close your eyes and completely relax, communicating if and when you need more or less pressure, to change positions, or if you are feeling chilly.

How will I feel after the massage or bodywork session?
Most people feel very relaxed. Many experience freedom from long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity which can last for days.

What are the benefits of massage and bodywork?
Massage and bodywork can help release chronic muscular tension and pain, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce mental and physical fatigue and stress, promote faster healing of injured muscular tissue, improve posture, and reduce blood pressure. Massage and bodywork is also known to promote better sleep, improve concentration, reduce anxiety and create an overall sense of well-being.

Are there any medical conditions that would make massage or bodywork inadvisable?
Yes. That's why it's imperative that, before you begin your session, the practitioner asks general health questions. It is very important that you inform the practitioner of any health problems or medications you are taking. If you are under a doctor's care, it is strongly advised that you receive a written recommendation for massage or bodywork prior to any session. Depending on the condition, approval from your doctor may be required.

 

Where should my mobile massage or bodywork session take place?
Ideally, your massage or bodywork session will take place in a warm, comfortable, quiet room. Privacy is something to consider if others will be present at your location.

When will my mobile therapist arrive?
Your massage therapist will arrive at the time you have appointed, which is approximately fifteen minutes before your session is expected to begin. This allows time to set up and visit about your session before it is time to begin. Expect your therapist to need about fifteen minutes after your session to clean up and be out of your way.

How much space is required?
A space roughly 6 feet by 8 feet will allow for the therapy table to be set up and for the therapist to work around it. However, even challenging spaces are usually workable.

Will I need to provide anything?
Your therapist will provide professional equipment to perform a variety of massage techniques safely and effectively for you. Soft music will be provided to help you relax. You will lie on a table especially designed for your comfort. Soothing vegan, hypoallergenic, gluten-free massage lotion will be provided. In the case of special circumstances, please don't hesitate to talk with your therapist about how to best provide for your safety and comfort.
