What To Expect During The Treatment Session
Prior to any treatment we will discuss your expectations of the treatment over a cup of tea, your current physical/emotional state of mind, and conduct a consultation in order to make sure the treatment benefits you as much as possible.
This is strictly confidential and is only used for the purpose of ensuring that it is the right treatment for you and that it is safe to proceed with the treatment. Please allow up to 20 minutes for your consultation on your first visit. Subsequent visits should only require about 10 minutes for the consultation.
The treatment room is a warm, cosy and tranquil room, specifically designed for you to feel calm and relaxed during your treatment time. This light and airy space located on the second floor, is the ideal place to relax and unwind after a busy day. Faux candles are placed around the treatment room, giving a beautiful effect where you can drift away leaving all the concerns of the day behind. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing for all treatments.
The holistic massage takes place on the massage couch. There are plenty of freshly laundered throws, towels, pillows and blankets available to ensure your comfort during the treatment and there is a thermostatic heater which keeps the room heated to a level that ensures your comfort throughout the treatment. Lighting is kept to levels that promote relaxation and relaxation music will play soothingly in the background. Before we start the session I will check that you are comfortable on the couch as we can make adjustments where necessary - it is really important that you are comfortable and warm before we start the session in order to get the most benefit.
Privacy is maintained at all times and strict guidelines are laid down by the Federation of Holistic Therapists on how treatments are to be conducted. I will leave the room whilst you remove outer clothing and position yourself on the couch under a throw and will always knock before returning to the room. During the treatment you will be covered with towels at all times, and only the area being worked on will be uncovered. At the end of the session I will ensure you feel alright before I leave the treatment room so that you can dress in privacy.
