Your therapist will have you complete a medical history and will discuss any issues or concerns you may have. If this is your first massage, your therapist will explain the massage process (draping, routine etc) and any add-ons you may request.
Most people undress to their boxers, shorts or underwear. You are completely covered the entire treatment. The therapist will drape the body with the sheet to cover all but the body part being worked. Any areas of sensitivity should be discussed prior to starting session (ticklish areas etc).
Try to relax the rest of the day. Drink plenty of water, and enjoy the feeling of relaxation. It is not uncommon for you to feel sore, somewhat queasy or extremely tired for the next 24 hours. This will pass. If you have any concerns, contact your therapist.

In order to provide you with the best experience, Claudia will discuss your concerns, your issues and any changes in the therapeutic process prior to the massage. You are in control of the session.
