What should I expect during my first visit to Origins Massage and Bodyworks?

Your massage therapist will require you to fill out a health history form. Afterwards, the therapist will begin by asking you general questions to establish what areas you would like worked on, if there are any conditions needing to be addressed and to determine if massage is appropriate for you.

From the lobby, your therapist will escort you to your own private therapeutic massage room. It’s a short and quiet walk. All of our massage rooms have dim lighting and soft soothing music playing in the background, which helps you to relax. Your therapist will then leave you to undress to your desired level of comfort and relax onto the massage table. There will be fresh blankets and sheets provided on the table. You will remain properly draped during the entire session to keep you warm and comfortable. A light lotion will be applied to allow your muscles to be massaged without causing excessive friction to the skin.

When your massage is completed, your therapist will leave the room and allow you some time to get dressed. Your therapist will then provide you with water and make a professional recommendation for your return visit.

After your massage, you will feel relaxed and you may feel relief from your former long-term aches and pains. For the first 24 hours after a deep tissue massage, you may feel a little sore or achy – this is a normal response due to toxins being released from your soft tissue. We recommend that you drink plenty of water following any massage. After that time, you will feel increased energy, heightened awareness and greater productivity.
