Does massage hurt?

Massage should never be painful. If it hurts but feels good, that’s okay! Ashley wants your session to feel safe and comfortable. Communication is extremely important with barefoot massage. If you feel any discomfort, speak up and tell her so she can lighten up and/or make adjustments.

Do I need to undress to receive massage?

Barefoot massage is best received when undressed completely. This allows Ashley to properly access and target the muscles and fascia in your low back, hips, and legs. You will ALWAYS be properly draped to maintain your privacy and comfort. If you’re not comfortable undressing, tell Ashley so she can customize your session to your comfort.

How will I feel after the massage?

Most people have the feeling of complete relaxation along with relief from their aches and pains. Once their bodies adapt to this blissful feeling, many people have more body awareness, feel more energetic and more productive. The feeling typically lasts a few days up to a week or longer.

What do I need to do after my session?

The best thing to do is unwind and take the rest of the day to rest and adjust to the work you received. It’s important to note that you may not feel better immediately following your session. Sometimes it takes a few sessions to get complete relief. To fully benefit from your massage, it’s extremely important to re-hydrate your body so it can heal. In addition to hydration, Ashley will probably have a few suggestions for you to help yourself maintain balance at home until your next appointment.

How often do you recommend getting massages?

It varies from person to person and really depends on your wellness goals. Most people find that once a month is sufficient to relieve stress and muscle tension. If once a month or more is your style, consider becoming a member! Listen to your body. It will tell you when you need another massage.
