What should I know when I arrive for my appointment?

It is always good to exercise massage etiquette when you arrive for your appointment. This means no cell phones, speaking in lower voice tones, and creating a relaxing environment for yourself and others. It is best to wear loose fitting clothing and to remove jewelry that might keep the massage therapist from being able to provide a full range of motion.
