What to expect

Modesty

  • Before your massage, you’ll be asked to remove clothing to your level of comfort.
  • The therapist will leave the room while you undress. Take off only as much as you are comfortable removing.
  • Lie on the massage table, underneath the provided sheet or towel, which will cover your body except for the part being massaged.
  • Chair massages, which often are offered in public spaces and workplaces, are an exception. A specially-designed massage chair lets you lean forward and supports the front of the body. You remain clothed and no oil or lotion is used. Seated massages typically last from 10 to 30 minutes.

Environment

  • Music might be played. If you find music distracting, tell your massage therapist. The same goes for talking during your session.
  • Your massage therapists should check on pressure and comfort throughout your appointment. If you're uncomfortable at any time, tell your massage therapist.
  • The massage table is padded, and may have extra attachments or cushions, such as a face cradle, which allows you to lie facedown without turning your head or neck.

Session

  • Massage therapists often use oil or lotion. If you're allergic to oils or lotions, tell your massage therapist beforehand.
  • If you're receiving hot stone massage, make sure you're comfortable with the temperature of the stones.
  • Depending on your needs, the massage therapist will massage either the full body (except private areas) or only specific areas that need attention, such as especially tight muscles.
  • Remember to breathe normally.
  • Table massage usually lasts beween 30 and 90 minutes.
  • After your massage, the massage therapist will allow you to slowly get up and get dressed in privacy. Usually your massage therapist will offer you water after you’re dressed.
  • Depending on the environment, tips are appreciated to recognize outstanding service, but not required.

"While I have had many massages, I was very impressed with Sachiyo and Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage. She is highly professional, very welcoming, and explains her techniques fully and clearly, while being very tuned in to her client's experience, needs and comfort. I was very impressed and will be a regular client from now on. I highly recommend her! "
