What to Expect:

  • You should expect a comfortable and peaceful environment for your massage. The spa staff will do everything possible to ensure that your experience is positive, relaxing, and rewarding. You will be asked about your reasons for getting a massage, current physical condition, stress level, areas of pain or tension, et cetera.
  • You will undress in private and lie down on a comfortable massage table under a sheet. You may leave your underpants on or take them off, at your discretion. The therapist will undrape only the part of your body being massaged at any given time, ensuring that your modesty is respected.
