What to Expect at a Massage

“I had a wonderful course of aromatherapy massages from Cath. She was skilled at understanding my mental and physical needs based on friendly and relaxed questions at the beginning of the session, She then tailored the message to these, which resulted in a positive effect on both my body and my mind. Highly recommend!”
– Holly, Bristol


Before your massage treatment

I pride myself on helping my clients to relax and feel comfortable from the moment they walk into the room. We will talk sensitively about any issues you may have that you would like to address. Depending on the type of treatment, we’ll discuss the techniques that will be used. And if you have any questions at all I will be happy to answer them.

If you have booked an Indian Head Massage you will be seated – this massage can be done through clothes or a towel depending on your preference. For all other types of massage you will lay on a massage couch or table. I will give you time alone to change down to your underwear and cover yourself with a towel, before I begin treatment.

What to expect during a massage

Once the treatment has started, there will be less conversation – I may check in with you every so often for feedback about how the treatment feels to you, but otherwise I’ll leave you to relax and zone out while I work.

Once the session is complete, I will leave you for a few minutes to come round in your own time. You may feel a little groggy or dazed, as if you’ve just woken up from a wonderful sleep.

After your massage

You should feel relaxed and rejuvenated after your massage.

It is important that you drink plenty of water for the next day or so, as this will help to flush out any toxins that have been released throughout the treatment. This will also help to combat any dehydration that you may feel.

I hope this has answered your questions, but if you want to know anything else about what to expect at a massage appointment, please don’t hesitate to ask me 07963 720 733

  ”I came home after my treatment last night and collapsed into bed. Cath’s massage therapy worked wonders. Slept like a log for the first time in years. Thanks for that, it was amazing.”

“I’d just like to say I had a massage from Cath on 13/04/17 and it was great. The treatment was tailored to my needs and she showed me a few stretching exercises after the massage.”

– Ivett, Bristol

“What a great massage! Cath got the pressure perfect allowing some pressure to work my muscles while keeping the massage relaxing like I’d asked. It was such a treat to have such a thorough full body massage from head to toe.
Thank you!”
