Frequently asked questions about massage
- Where exactly are you located?
54 South Brown Street, Rhinelander, Wisconsin, inside the Serenity Health & Wellness building.
- What type of massage do you offer?
I have training in Classic Swedish, Deep Tissue, Hot Stone, Cupping, Fijian, Table Thai and my favorite, Ashiatsu.
- Do you charge extra for cupping or other modalities?
Nope. I don’t even generally know what I’ll be doing for you until you’re here and we make a plan, so if I/we choose to incorporate cupping, hot stone, or deep tissue – it’s all included.
- Do you offer mobile services?
Yes!! Contact me to work out the details. Table, Fijian or chair massages are available.
- Are tips expected?
Appreciated, but never expected.
- Do you have a referral program?
Yes. $5 off your next massage for every referral that books an appointment!
- What should I wear?
During the massage, you will be draped with sheets/blankets except for the area being worked on. Most people wear comfortable, easy-to-remove clothing and during the massage either wear underwear or nothing at all. The important thing is your comfort. Wear as much or as little as you’d like. Note: for Ashiatsu massage, completely undressed is preferable. You will still be covered by linens except for the area being worked on. I will leave the room while you undress/dress. I do offer a couple of fully-clothed options – chair massage or Fijian, which requires you to be able to lie on a mat on the floor while you receive a deep tissue massage through your clothing. I get it! I’d hate to see people not getting massage because they don’t want to undress. It’s all good.
- What will I be doing during the massage?
For the most part, deeply relaxing. I will reposition head, arms, and legs as necessary. If I need your participation to assist in a muscle release, I will communicate that to you. Some folks like to chat, but most enjoy the down time. Some fall asleep (don’t worry, I will wake you up eventually!).
- How often should I get a massage, and for how long?
For maintenance, monthly is great. Otherwise, weekly or every other week if you have a particular concern we’re working on. I’m a fan of the 75 and 90 minute length, so that I can really work into the areas that need extra attention as well as give a full body massage.To help the results of your massage last, incorporate stretches and be sure to drink extra water afterwards (and mind your hydration every day ;-).
- What if I burp/fart/snore/drool during the massage?
Congratulations on being a human 😉 Doesn’t phase me.
- Are the sheets clean?
I happen to have the best laundry service in town! Between clients, all surfaces are wiped down and the table is dressed with clean sheets, face rest cover, and clean coverings on the hot packs.
- What is your massage table’s weight capacity?
- What types of payment do you accept?
All of them 🙂 Including American Express.
