What to Expect

The idea of receiving a massage can be off-putting, especially if you’re new to the process. Lyn has explained her process below, and if you have any questions or anything you’re uncertain about before your booking, simply call Lyn and ask at any time.

  1. When you arrive for your first session, you will be asked to fill out a form giving basic details and a history of your health and physical issues. Massage therapists take your history so that we can help you feel most comfortable – if you have an injury or issue that you haven’t mentioned, you may not find the massage as relaxing or as comfortable as it could have been.
  2. If you have ticklish feet, or a part of the body you would rather left alone (e.g. some people don’t enjoy having their calves worked on), now is the best time to mention it.
  3. After your history has been taken and you are ready to proceed, Lyn will leave the room. At this point you will be required to undress to your underwear, lie face down on the table and drape the provided towel over yourself. Lyn will give you plenty of time to get undressed and will knock before she enters to make sure you are ready.
    Reflexology and reiki do not require undressing – for these services you will remain fully clothed (or may only remove footwear). Massage can also be done through and around clothes – the most important thing is that you feel comfortable.
  4. It’s recommended that you remove all loose jewellery such as bracelets, necklaces and watches. Rings and small earrings (such as studs) are fine to leave on.
  5. Lyn follows the ATMS Code of Ethics and maintains professional conduct at all time. You will receive a respectful massage with your privacy maintained constantly. Lyn uses towels to ensure your privacy – you will be draped with towels at all times.
  6. After your massage you will be given time to wake up slowly and dress at your own pace. Rushing you out the door would only ruin the relaxation!
