your first massage

What happens first...
Once you arrive at Pure Health, you will be greeted with some filtered water and asked to fill out a massage registration form. This is where you record any medical history, past/present injuries and other physical conditions we should be made aware of. Your massage therapist will then review the form. They will inquire about the reason(s) you are coming in for a massage, your current physical condition and any specific areas you would like to address during your massage.
It's always useful to arrive 10-15 minutes early for your first appointment. This will give you time to complete your paperwork and take a few minutes to relax, unwind, and get the most out of your experience.

Your customised massage...
Your massage therapist will then take you to a peaceful, spa-like treatment room with a comfortable massage table. You can take a seat, leave your personal possesions in a safe area while your massage therapist leaves the room and waits outside while you disrobe to your level of comfort. The massage etiquette varies from client to client. Mosts clients choose to remain partially clothed, and of course feel free to talk to your therapist with any questions you might have. Once disrobed, you will lie on the massage table, under the top sheet or towel. Your massage therapist will give you a few minutes for this process and will knock on the door to ask if you are ready before entering your room.

During your massage...
Before beginning the session, your therapist will ask you to alert them if, at any time during the session, a technique they are using is uncomfortable. Depending on your specific needs or requests, your massage therapist will either perform a customised massage (for general relaxation and stress reduction) or focus on the specific parts of your body that you have requested. You will always be draped with the top sheet or towel during your massage session. You can expect a tranquil and comfortable environment during your massage. The massage table is padded and the rooms heated to your comfort level with low relaxed lighting. There will be relaxing music playing, which you can choose should you wish to.
Some people like to talk during a massage. Some prefer to relax without conversation. Do what feels best. We'll follow your lead. Pure Health uses only the highest quality cold pressed and organic oils for your comfort and health. You can choose to use unscented or essential oils (at no extra cost - see our menu for current choice of oils)
This is your customised massage. If you have feedback on pressure, room temperature, lighting… let us know.

A therapeutic experience...
Once your massage therapy session is complete, your therapist will leave the room so you can re-dress. Your therapist will wait outside in the waiting room for you with a cup of filtered water, and then take you back to the reception area when you're ready. Here you can choose to relax with a cup of organic tea should you wish.

After the treatment drink plenty of water, as this flushes out the minerals that were released during your massage while rehydrating your muscles and reducing potential soreness.

We look forward to seeing you for your first visit. If you have any questions about the etiquette during a massage, we will be happy to answer them for you, you can always email or call before hand should you wish.
