Frequently Asked Massage Questions

Do I need to provide anything for the massage?


If it is in your home, you can provide towels, otherwise just relax and enjoy.


What am I supposed to wear when I get a massage?


For an oil based massage you should undress to your own level of comfort. It's up to you. For thai massage, wear thin loose/comfortable trousers/leggings and a top.


How do I book?

What type of massage should I get?


Feeling like a massage newbie? Maybe book a 90 minute general massage. This way you cover the main areas of your body so that you can consider which you like best and which you prefer next time for a more specific massage.


Can I eat or drink before a massage?


It is best to avoid drinking alcohol immediately before your massage and try not to have a massage on a full stomach, wait at least 2 hours particularly if you are having a Thai massage with abdominal massage and inverted stretches.


Should I talk during the massage?


It’s usually best to close your eyes, and switch off. But once again, it’s up to you. Be sure to speak up if you feel cold or too hot, if you experience huge pain or if you would like the massage changed in any way. We are here to make you feel better and are not upset by requests to change style to suit you better.


I don't want you to touch a certain part of my body


If you don't like a particular part of your body touched or are just self-conscious about a certain body area, please inform us before hand.


The pressure isn't right for me, what should i do?


Please don't worry about upsetting me - just let me know immediately and we will be more than happy to hear how best to adjust the pressure to suit your personal preferences. We are all different and prefer different pressures and styles at different times. 


What if I realize I've dribbled during the massage?


Many people fall into a peaceful slumber during the massage but when they wake up, they notice a pool of drool. This is very common. If this happens, you do no more than look up with 'ooops' eyes and laugh it off.

How long can I book my treatment for?


The standard session lengths are:30 minutes on our premises, 60 minutes, 90 minutes and 120 minutes (typically for Thai massage).


What if I get an erection during the massage?


There is no reason to be embarrassed. It is possible that men may get an erection during a massage. Touch administered to any area of the body can activate parts of your nervous system and cause such a reaction. Being professionally trained, we understand and will just ignore it.


Are your massages sensual?


Properly performed, a good massage should give pleasure to your body and its systems. You are, after all, being touched warmly with love and care by another human being. I cannot (and would not wish to) control your senses. So yes, massage might be a sensual experience for you. All I ask is that you respect me and my work as the decent, professional and caring human being I am.


How often should I receive a massage?

 

This is a 'piece of string' type question. If you had a 2 hour Thai massage and a 2 hour deep tissue massage once a  week, you would be in a very great condition in most senses of the word.


Are there any side effects i need to be aware of?


Becasue of the reconfigureing of hydration in your soft tissue, you might feel a little dizzy or suffer a headache after a massage. These are natural reactions, which you should not worry about. Drink lots of water to decrease these symptoms. Depending on the type of work that was done , you may have a some soreness in your muscles for a few days but this is also perfectly natural - feel good about it, like you do after a good session at the gym!


Happy endings - what are they and can I get one?


A common question in the massage industry, so we prefer to deal with it rather than pretend it never gets asked. Happy endings refer to certain acts which are carried out at the end of a sexually orientated massage. You absolutely cannot get any sexual services through us so please show respect and don't even ask! Other classic approaches are asking about 'Glute massage' , 'pleasure massage', 'Tantric Massage' or telling me that you work out 5 times a week and are really fit. And No! We do not offer a post-massage shower service you Joker!


Can I cancel my booking?


We understand that unexpected changes can happen. Please note that as soon as you book , the diary is immediately reserved for you for the whole of the booked massage time plus travel time before and after. This means no-one else is able to be booked in during that whole period. So I ask that you provide at least 24 hours notice to cancel any bookings by phone.


Where are you based? 


We are based by St. Lukes Church off Old street (EC1V 3). 


umm, all very interesting but my question hasn't been answered?
