In order to get the most out of your treatment time, it's best if you arrive a minimum of 10 minutes prior to your scheduled time. A member of the Haven reception team will greet you warmly and show you into the lounge area where you're welcome to have some water or tea, or just sit and enjoy the view. You may be asked to fill out an intake form if you haven't already done so prior to arrival. For your own comfort, wear loose fitting clothes to the treatment or bring a change with you. No one likes getting into tight fitting clothes after a massage.
Please note: I use a combination of coconut oil, Biotone massage lotion, and essential oils in all of my treatments. If you have any sensitivities to any of these products please let me know prior to the treatment.
What to expect for your treatment:
I like to begin all treatments with a brief conversation to go over your intake form and discuss the plan for your treatment. This is also a great time for you to ask any questions you might have. Once we're clear on how things will go, I'll step out of the room to wash my hands and give you time to remove your clothing and get on the table. Once you've let me know that it's safe to re-enter the room, I'll begin the massage based on what we discussed during our conversation.
Depending on our plan. you may be asked to turn over during your treatment, I will help as best as I can making this transition easy and safe for you by giving clear directions and helping with the sheets. Out of respect for your privacy, I like to close my eyes while you make your adjustments and re-open them once you have settled into your new shape.
When it's time, I will gently let you know that it's the end of the treatment. I will give you directions on how to best support your body getting off the table before leaving the room to wash my hands and give you time to get dressed. When you're ready, just open the door and I'll bring you some water. It's important to stay hydrated after a treatment to nourish the the cells of your body as they continue to release any tension or toxins.
You are welcome to stay in the lounge area after your treatment, have some tea, or use the washroom. When you're ready, stop in at reception to take care of your bill and book a follow-up treatment. I recommend coming in bi-weekly for best results.
