Our massage times are ‘on the table’ estimates so please allow an additional fifteen minutes to one half hour for your total appointment time. You are welcome to relax before or after your massage in one of our public or private relaxation areas.
Beginning with the technique requested in your appointment reservation our licensed massage therapist will begin with a consultation to determine with you which techniques best suit your needs for that session. Depending on scheduling and availability you and the massage therapist may choose to change the type of massage to be received and the Concierge Desk will be notified of the change before or after the massage by the attending employee and any price adjustments will be made by the Concierge Desk employee. Our One Hour Massage descriptions are below including Swedish style, deep tissue, aromatherapy, therapeutic, and pre-natal. When performing the massage, the therapist will maintain full draping of the body with the exception of the area being massaged.
What about a full body massage? A full body Swedish Massage typically requires one hour or more and may include the following areas, scalp, neck, shoulders, back, arms, legs and feet. Since we book by time and technique, you and the therapist will determine any areas of specific focus for the duration of your session. Therapeutic Massage may include other muscle groups when necessary to relieve edema or pain.
Information on your health as required by best practices and the information and consent required by the State of Texas will be collected on your first appointment, and at minimum on an annual basis, and more specific discussion of your therapeutic needs will be identified and noted in your client records. Shorter sessions of one hour or less will be limited to specific treatment areas such as neck and shoulders, or lower back and legs, or neck, hands and feet, etc. All appointments are reserved for the time indicated plus additional time for consultation before the massage and a few minutes rest on the table. Additional time may be made available if you need more rest and relaxation in one of our private or shared areas or to transition between services. Please review our late and cancellation policies as you make your appointment.
