These are the questions our clients frequently ask.

Why is having a massage therapist’s license important?
A licensed massage therapist has met all the requirements the state of Wisconsin requires and paid a fee to legally practice massage therapy in the city in which they operate.
To obtain a license, the therapist has completed a minimum number of training hours at an accredited school or training facility.
Licensed massage therapists are required to undergo a complete background check before receiving their license.

Why do I feel sore after having a massage?
Feeling a bit sore the day you have a massage is normal.
There are some easy and pleasant things you can do to prevent soreness the next day.
Increase your water intake the day of and the day after your massage. Well hydrated muscles are more flexible.
Drinking water after a massage helps flush away the toxins released during massage therapy.
We recommend doing gentle stretching exercises, paying attention to the trouble spots identified during your therapeutic massage.
Pamper yourself with a warm bath with Epsom salts (1/2 cup to 1 cup) in the water and soak for 20 to 40 minutes to help your body rid itself of toxins and reduce muscle inflammation.
As your body becomes more accustomed to having regular therapy massages, you will experience reduced next day soreness.

How much should I tip?
Our massage therapists love what they do.
Your tip reflects your appreciation for the service.
We recommend tipping percentages based on the full price of a regular massage.
Think of your massage therapist like you would a waiter/waitress in a restaurant.

How often should I receive a massage?
People that use massage therapy for preventive care or to manage stress, generally have a massage once a month.
Weekly sessions may be appropriate if you need relief caused by an injury or experience chronic muscle tightness.
Many people include massage therapy as an important part of their life experience twice a month.

Will I be covered during the session? 
You will be properly covered or draped at all times to keep you warm and comfortable.
Only the area being worked on will be exposed. No areas will be exposed without your consent.
We encourage you tell your massage therapist if you are uncomfortable for any reason during your massage session.
