Why can't I use another deal voucher (Groupon, Amazon Local, etc) for this session?
If you have seen us before using a deal voucher you may not use another. We limit 1 voucher per person.
See our Business Policies.
Are there female massage therapists there?
Unfortunately, no there is not. At this moment, Jairo Marte is the sole massage therapist.
What will happen when I arrive for my session?
If you enter the foyer and the door is closed, please have a seat in the chair by the door. I may be finishing up a session and will get to you as soon as I am done. If you are a new client, you will need to fill out an intake form. The therapist will ask questions about the reason for the massage. Is it for relaxation? Do you have problem areas that you need the massage to be focused on? What kind of pressure would you like during the massage? Once your massage is done, we will provide you with water to help flush out the toxins that we just released.
Where will my massage session take place?
Your massage or bodywork session will take place in our serene and comfortable room. Soft music will be played to help you relax. You will lie on a table designed for comfort. You may request the table to be heated.
Must I be completely undressed?
Most massage techniques are traditionally performed with the client unclothed. You should undress to your level of comfort, whatever that may be. You will be properly draped during the entire session. Only the area being worked on will be exposed. All gluteal (buttock) work is performed over the draping with a closed fist or elbow. If you prefer to keep your brassiere on, you may unclasp it while we work on your back muscles in order to get full range of the muscle groups. Please note that any clothing left on workable areas of the body (arms, legs and back) will only get compression and kneading techniques. Clothing impedes stroke motions like petrissage and effleurage which are the basic Swedish motions.
What parts of my body will be massaged?
A typical full-body session will include work on your back, arms, legs, feet, hands, head, neck, and shoulders. If you choose for us to avoid certain areas or spend more time on others, please inform us.
What are the benefits of massage?
Massage and bodywork can help release chronic muscular tension and pain, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce mental and physical fatigue and stress, promote faster healing of injured muscular tissue, improve posture, and reduce blood pressure. Massage and bodywork is also known to promote better sleep, improve concentration, reduce anxiety and create an overall sense of well-being.
What is deep tissue massage?
Deep tissue massage should not be confused with deep pressure. Deep tissue is a massage modality that targets the deep underlying muscle tissues using various techniques to accomplish tension relief. There is a slight chance that Deep Tissue massage may make you sore, but the benefit of this modality outweighs that con.
How come it's not letting me schedule 2 weeks from now? Are you really that busy? Is this a scam?
I'm not exactly sure what's happening 2 weeks from now. I may be that busy since I'm the only massage therapist or I may be taking some vacation time with my lovely wife. My body and hands can usually do 5-7 hours of massage a day. 5 hours is ideal and if I do 7 hours - my body will hate me the following day. I typically average 6 hours of massage so that I don't overwork myself. Scams? Ain't nobody got time for that!
I just left you a message saying that I have a voucher deal. Where do I leave that information?
To avoid any complications, make sure you either print it or have a screenshot on your phone (I need the barcode and coupon numbers). Numbers sometimes lie due to them being transposed so do not leave any information via voicemail, text or email. Barcodes and QR codes are easy to scan and they don't lie - they are as honest as can be and just want to be loved and scanned. So please, just print or screen shot the information. If you do not have your deal information, you will be charged the full massage price.
Will I be able to get a same day appointment?
It is best to schedule appointments at least 24 hours in advance but we will try to accommodate same day appointments if possible.
