Your First Appointment
Massage is a powerful way to relax the mind and body, and address areas of muscle tension. It has long been hailed as one of the most effective non-medicinal solutions to stress and tension, and has been used in cultures throughout the world for thousands of years.
But, not everyone has enjoyed a massage before, and the first time you get a massage it can be an interesting experience. DEEP Relief, based in Austin, Texas, will provide you with a custom massage experience that will leave you feeling refreshed. The following are some of the things you can expect from your massage appointment.
Since it will be your first appointment, you will fill out our intake form so that we can learn more about you, like do you have specific areas that are causing you discomfort?
We’ll also explain our unique communication system, which ensures our therapists address any areas that need special attention and helps make sure they are using the correct pressure level for your individual comfort. Our massages range from lite pressure to the DEEPest in town.
Before the Massage
We’ll take you to a room where you can privately get undressed and ready for your massage. Undress only as much as you’re comfortable – some people prefer to be completely unclothed. Others are more comfortable wearing some undergarments. You’ll be properly draped by a sheet and blanket for privacy and warmth.
Before you get undressed, you’ll be instructed on how to prepare depending on the type of massage. Most of the time, you’ll lie on a massage table, face down, with a sheet pulled over you. Our Austin massage therapists will not reenter the room until you indicate that you are ready.
During the Massage
There will be some calming music playing and dim lighting. optional aromatherapy will help you relax. Your therapist will then begin performing the massage. The DR Signature Massage may incorporate many different massage techniques, including, but not limited to:
- Deep Tissue
- Trigger Point Therapy
We’ll discuss in advance what each style entails. You’ll feel pressure against your muscles as the knots are worked out. Deeper massage can have some mild discomfort as we get deep into the muscle fibers, but that’s usually in a “hurts so good” kinda way. If you are uncomfortable in any way, please let your therapist know, your comfort is our priority. Once we’ve completed one section, we move on to another.
After the Massage
Once the massage is over, you’ll be given a warm towel to wipe off any cream that might desire to and the therapist will leave the room giving you an opportunity to dress.
You will then be encouraged to drink water, as the muscles can use the refreshment. You’ll also be given any after care instructions that you need. You will then proceed to the front desk to check out and be offered an opportunity to schedule a follow up appointment.
Massage is loved the world over, and the perfect choice for your chronic stresses. If you are ready to schedule your massage appointment in Austin, TX, please call today at 512-529-0027.
