FAQs

Do I Take My Clothes Off?
For a full body relaxation massage, most people undress completely (underwear is worn at your discretion). Your privacy is respected at all times, as you are warmly covered with a clean sheet; only the area being massaged is exposed. Most types of bodywork, including Swedish Massage, need the use of oils to lubricate the skin and allow for easier application of certain strokes. This is best done without clothes worn.
If your therapist is treating a particular part of your body for injury reasons, you may be asked to remove only the clothing pertaining to that area. Also, certain types of body work, such as Foot Reflexology, Energy Work, and others, may never require clothing removal.
Check with your therapist first to find out what type of massage is offered and to make your preferences known. The most effective treatment can then be determined for you.

Water Facts

It is important to drink a lot of water after a massage. Massage helps to push toxins out of your muscles and into your lymphatic system to be removed as waste; drinking water after a massage aids in the flushing of the lymph system and the removal of these toxins. Remember: it is essential to drink adequate amounts of water at all times, not just after a massage.

Consider these other important water facts:

  • The human body is made up of about 66% water.

  • 75% of the human brain is water; 83% of the blood is composed of water; bones are made of 25% water; 70% of your skin is water; and 70% of your lean muscle tissue is water.

  • Water plays many roles in the human body – it acts as a solvent, carries nutrients and oxygen to cells, aids in temperature regulation, provides lubrication and shock protection for joints, participates in chemical reactions, protects organs and tissues, and removes waste.

  •  The body’s thirst signal is an indication that it is already dehydrated.

  •  Mild dehydration (5% loss of body weight) can account for lack of energy, weakness, muscle soreness, rapid pulse, and rough, dry skin. Water losses of 9-12% total body weight can be fatal.

  • With  strenuous  exercise, the body can lose 2 quarts of water per hour. If fluids are not replaced, the body’s cells will lose water, which will lead to dehydration and overheating.

  • An average adult needs to drink a minimum of 64 ounces of water per day. Coffee, soda pop, and alcohol are dehydrators. For every glass of these beverages that you drink, you need to drink an extra glass of water to compensate.

  • You can survive a month without food, but only 5-7 days without water.
