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.
Your massage therapist may perform certain assessments and testing to
evaluate your condition, and to see if you have any presenting complaints.
Your massage or bodywork session will take place in a warm, comfortable,
quiet room. Soft music may be played to help you relax. You will lie on a
table especially designed for your comfort.
Depending on the primary technique your therapist uses, you may or may not
need to undress. For a full body massage, most people undress completely.
However, you may choose to wear underwear. Your massage therapist will give
you privacy to undress, and you will be covered with a sheet and blanket at
all times except the area being worked on.
Make yourself comfortable. If your therapist wants you to adjust your
position, she or he will either move you or will ask you to move what is
needed. Otherwise, change your position anytime to make yourself more
comfortable. Many people close their eyes and relax completely during a
session; others prefer to talk. It's up to you. It is your massage, and
whatever feels natural to you is the best way to relax. Do not hesitate to
ask questions at any time.
It usually depends on the techniques used. Many massage therapists use a
form of Swedish massage, which is often a baseline for practitioners. In a
general Swedish massage, your session may start with broad, flowing strokes
(*effleurage*) that will help calm your nervous system and relax exterior
muscle tension. As your body becomes relaxed, pressure will gradually be
increased to relax specific areas and relieve areas of muscular tension.
Often, a light oil or lotion is used to allow your muscles to be massaged
without causing excessive friction to the skin. Do not hesitate to ask
questions or mention if you feel any discomfort so that the massage
therapist can use another approach or technique.
Most massage therapists use hypoallergenic massage oils or lotions.
However, if you have sensitivity to certain types of oils or lotion please
bring it to the massage therapist's attention as most practitioners have an
assortment of oils and lotions on hand.
No, there are several medical conditions that would make massage
inappropriate. That's why it is necessary that you fill out the health
history forms and before you begin your session. The massage therapist will
ask general health questions to rule out if you have any contraindications
to massage. It is very important that you inform the practitioner of any
health problems or medications you are taking. If you are under a doctor's
care, it is strongly advised that you receive a written recommendation for
massage prior to any session. Your massage therapist may require a
recommendation or approval from your doctor.
The average full-body massage treatment lasts approximately one hour. A
half-hour appointment only allows time for a partial massage session, such
as neck and shoulders, back or legs and feet. Many people prefer a 60- to
90-minute session for optimal relaxation. Always allow relaxation time
prior to and after the session.
Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience freedom from long-term aches
and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity. After an initial
period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy,
heightened awareness, and greater productivity which can last for days.
Since toxins are released from your soft tissues during a massage, it is
recommended you drink plenty of water following your massage. Massage
therapists sometimes recommend a hot Epsom salt bath that encourages the
release of toxins that may have been stirred up from the massage treatment.
Eyelash Extensions are a synthetic eyelash that are applied individually to each of your lashes. They are attached one by one to your natural lashes with a medical grade adhesive.
When properly cared for, your extensions will last the life of your natural lashes. When the natural lash sheds, so does the extension that was attached to it. Since new hairs are always growing in, refills can be performed to attach extensions to the new growth keeping the lashes looking full continuously or for as long as you wish to maintain them.
On average, refills are recommended every 2-3 weeks to keep the lashes looking their best. With proper maintenance eyelash extensions can be kept up indefinitely through regular refills.

No! As long as you are taking care of your extensions, your natural lashes will not be damaged. Natural lashes will fall out every 2-3 weeks taking the extension with them. A new lash will grow in its place.
A full set takes around 2 hours. A fill takes between 45 mins- 75 mins. For your appointment you will lay on a bed with your eyes closed. Your lower lashes will be taped down and lashes are applied one by one to your upper lashes. Many people fall asleep!
