Reach Massage Nirvana - massage therapy in Indianapolis

Communication is the key to a great massage.

The following is a checklist to help ensure you maximize your experience:

Arrive on time 
Being there 10-15 minutes before the session keeps you from feeling rushed. 

Relay all appropriate medical history
Allergies? Injuries? Medications? Surgeries? Speak up, for safety reasons. Your preexisting conditions could change the protocol for your session. 

Set clear goals
Have you explained the areas you want addressed? I'm not a mind reader!

Be open
My strategies may not involve a direct path to your sore elbow. Understand that the body works in mysterious ways, and my approach may take a more circuitous path to healing than you expect. 

Be quiet ...
It's your time; Relax and bathe yourself in the stress reduction and healing that massage therapy offers.

... But speak up when you don't like something 
Room too cold? Too hot? Pressure too deep? Too light? I want you to have the ultimate experience, so please speak up if something is not right. 

Book your next session
Rome wasn't built in a day, and your body may not be "fixed" in one session. The benefits of massage are cumulative and often requires a regular regimen to get things just right. Before you depart, be sure to schedule your next appointment. Let's discuss a treatment plan to help you reach nirvana
