How will my privacy be maintained during the massage?

Clients have a choice between two different types of massage:

  • Chair Massage (15 – 30 minute sessions) – This type of massage is performed while the client sits fully clothed in a specialized chair.

  • Table Massage (30 minutes and more ) – This type of massage is performed while the client lies on the massage table. Although the client has the right to keep fully clothed, massage is best performed with hand to skin contact. With the client's permission and adequate privacy, the therapist will uncover only the immediate area where the treatment is being performed.
