BEFORE YOUR MASSAGE
1. How much notice do I need to make an appointment ?
The T'Touch therapist is able to reach you within 60 and 120 minutes depending on your location.
2. Do you offer sex, sensual / tantric / body to body or "extras" during or after the session ?
NO. The massage offered is strictly professional and therapeutic. We do not provide any kind of extras and do not appreciate any type of sexual suggestions/invitations.
3. What information do I have to give to book my appointment ?
In order for us to book your appointment, we need your name, mobile phone number or the best number to reach you, address and full postal code. All your personal information is protected in accordance with the UK Data Protection Legislation (the Data Protection Act 1998).
4. How do I pay and when ?
Payments are done either by faster payment on booking your treatment (account details are given on booking a treatment). Once payment is received your treatment will be fully confirmed. OR in cash to the therapist before the treatment begins. Please note that the therapist will not accept cheques, only cash.
5. What if I need to cancel my appointment?
if cancellation of treatment by a client takes place before the Therapist is in transit no fee will be charged, if the Therapist is in transit and client cancels, then a flat fee of £25 will be charged, if the Therapist arrives at the client's address and the Client cancels, then the full cost of the treatment will be charged.
6. I am running late to my session. What should I do ?
We know life can be hectic sometimes. Please let us know as soon as you can if you are running late so we can move your session a bit. The earliest you let us know, the better, as your therapist may be in transit.
7. Can I eat before a massage ?
We advise that nothing heavy be eaten less than one hour before or after massage. However, a small snack half hour beforehand is ok. Choose foods that are easy on the stomach, like toast with eggs or a yogurt drink. Too large a meal or hard-to-digest foods can cause uncomfortable gassiness when the therapist presses down on your abdomen
DURING YOUR MASSAGE
8. Am I supposed to take off my underwear when I get a massage? Can I go fully naked ?
Most clients prefer to keep panties or briefs on during massage. If your problem areas are your lower back, hips or buttocks, tight-fitting underwear can get in the way of massage work, but a thong for women or briefs for men should do the trick.
However, if you wish to be fully undressed the therapist will help you maintain dignity and modesty at all times by ensuring you are properly covered with a sheet or towel. Only the area being massaged will be uncovered.
9. I'm self-conscious about a certain part of my body and don't want the therapist to see me. What can I do ?
People are self-conscious for various reasons. Some of the more common concerns are:
- I'm overweight.
- I have excessive hair growth on my body.
- I've got acne on my face or back.
- My feet are ugly.
- I have scars, etc, etc.
Being self-conscious should never keep you from seeking health care, whether it's visiting your doctor or seeing a massage therapist. Massage therapists are warm, caring persons, If you're self-conscious about a certain part of your body, please speak to your massage therapist. You can also ask her to avoid that particular area.
10. The pressure is not deep enough, but I don't want to insult the therapist's technique. What should I do?
Communicate openly with the massage therapist, let them know as many times as necessary to what degree you'd like firmer pressure. Keep in mind however that it's a myth that massage therapy has to hurt to be effective. Some of the most effective types of massage therapy are gentle and do not involve deep pressure or pain. In fact, too much pressure can cause muscles to seize up.
11. How often should I receive a massage ?
The answer depends on the reasons for receiving the massage. If a client comes for some injury relief, and to relieve chronic tightness that is interfering with their daily lives in some way, weekly sessions for a while is advisable, as this is necessary for relief and healing. For those who use massage as preventive care and managing the daily stress in their lives, once every two weeks is about the norm. They may shorten the time between massages during stressful periods. Some come more often just because they enjoy it that much.
For most people, the frequency of the massages they receive is limited by their pocketbook. It's an unfortunate fact, however, once people realize the benefits it provides them, and the pleasure they receive from it, many find a way to incorporate a regular session into their budget.
