Frequently asked questions

What to wear

This is entirely dependant upon which treatment you have booked.  

For instance, if you have a back massage booked, then I would ask you to remove clothing to the waist and lower the waistband of your trousers, skirt or underwear so that I can work the area,  a towel will be tucked into your clothing to ensure no oil is transferred to your clothes. 

 

For ladies the massage can be carried out with or without a bra, if you prefer to leave your bra on, then I would just ask you to take your arms from the straps so I can work across the top of the shoulders and top of arms.

For a full body, then you would need to undress to your underwear. and again you will be draped with towels/sheets/blankets and only the area worked is uncovered.

For clients who have devices fitted i.e. stoma bag, picc line, portacath etc., it really doesn't matter, we just adapt the treatment and work around them.   

I work in accordance with current government guidelines and for close contact services we are both required to wear a mask, and I will also be required to don goggles/visor too.

If you have any concerns or questions, please contact me.

Covid

I have completed  health & safety courses with LaStone and the Jennifer Young Oncology Training School in Infection Control and Risk Assessment so I am following a safe protocol and you can book with confidence.

Once you have booked, you will be sent a risk assessment as to your current health, please take a moment to complete this to help keep you, me and the centre a safe space.

Shaving

I am not worried whether you have shaved your legs, underarms etc., it is actually better if you don't; if you have any nics, cuts or grazes from shaving then I will need to avoid the area, also you get a better finish if you shave after; as the massage helps remove dead skin cells and lifts the hair too.

Waxing

Please leave it 12-24 hours after a leg wax, if you are having your legs massaged - this is to avoid the risk of infection.

Mobile phones

It's your time, so if you are expecting a call please ensure that your phone is available for either me to hand to you or if you do not wish to be interrupted pop it on silent or switch off.  

Etiquette

I am a professional therapist who has spent many years studying and working in the industry.  Please do not embarrass yourself by requesting services of a sexual nature.  As a client you will be asked to leave and struck off my list.

My code of ethics are in line with the British Register of Complementary Practitioners and the Association of Reflexologists.
