What To Expect During Your Massage

      • Where will my massage take place?

        Your massage will take place in a warm, comfortable, quiet room located inside the Campus Recreation Center. Soft music may be played to help you relax, and you will lie on a table especially designed for your comfort.

      • Who will perform the massage?

        A Certified Massage Therapist will perform your massage.

      • Must I be completely undressed?

        Most massage and bodywork techniques are traditionally performed with the client unclothed; however, it is entirely up to you what you want to wear. You should undress to your level of comfort. You will be properly draped during the entire session.

      • Will the practitioner be present when I disrobe?

        The practitioner will leave the room while you undress; relax onto the table, and cover yourself with the clean sheet and blanket provided.

      • Will I be covered during the session?
        You will be properly draped at all times to keep you warm and comfortable. Only the area being worked on will be exposed
