New Moon Massage
Bringing Bodies Back Into Balance
Whether this is your very first massage or you are a regular, you can always trust that your experience will be the same. Together, we will review your health history, your current symptoms, and your goals for the massage, and plan a customized treatment based on your individual needs.
What are the benefits of massage?
Receiving a massage relaxes the body, calms the nervous system, loosens tight muscles and connective tissue, reduces pain, decreases headaches, speeds recovery from injuries and illnesses, increases range of motion, improves muscle tone, increases blood and lymph circulation, and improves posture and skin tone. Massage also reduces stress and anxiety, promotes quality sleep, releases endorphins, improves concentration, and provides a sense of wellbeing.
What do I wear to my massage?
When a massage therapist asks you to "undress to the level of your comfort" this means you can stay fully clothed or remove all of your clothes. Some modalities can be practiced on fully clothed individuals, such as Shiatsu and Reiki. In every case, you will have privacy to undress and get onto the massage table, under the sheet and blanket. During the massage, you will be modestly draped, with only the section of your body being worked on uncovered. You decide which areas are to be worked on based on the treatment we plan together during the intake.
Do I have to tip my massage therapist?
Gratuities are appreciated, but not expected.
What time should I arrive for my appointment? What if I have to reschedule or cancel my appointment?
Please arrive at least five minutes before your scheduled appointment time in order to ensure a full massage session. You can easily reschedule or cancel your appointment by following the link in your booking confirmation email or you can call, text, or email. You may cancel your appointment without charge anytime before your scheduled time. If you do not call, text, or email to cancel your appointment and do not show up for your scheduled appointment, you will be charged 50% of the full price of the scheduled service.
