What to expect after you’ve booked. Let’s step through.

We’ll be in touch with our designated onsite contact in the days leading up to your visit, as a friendly reminder and to check in to see if they have any further questions. It’s paramount we satisfy their needs, answer any questions and provide all details required. Then the countdown begins!

On the day

Your practitioner(s) will arrive with plenty of time to spare, to meet with their onsite contact, discuss any details and familiarise themselves with the environment. They’ll get to work setting up any massage equipment (chair or table) required.

Whilst we strive to keep it all relaxed and easy, timing is crucial for a smooth visit. Practitioners are sure to be onsite, ready to start on time and make every effort to keep on schedule throughout their visit.

What happens during a massage?

Your practitioner will briefly question each recipient before starting their massage to understand any existing health concerns. This takes all of 30 seconds and is vitally important* information. On very rare occasions, your practitioner will err on the side of caution (as they are ethically and professionally required to do so) and will choose to not massage an individual.

No removal of clothing is required as our massage is generally conducted through clothing, unless clearly agreed upon prior to each individual massage and only when table massage is utilised.

After being eased onto the massage chair or table, or asked to sit back in your office chair with arms relaxing in your lap, you’ll immediately start to unwind. The effects of positive touch are transferred to you from the outset.

Don’t be afraid to tell your practitioner what you prefer. This is a time when you are in control. You are effectively designing your own massage.

You will notice any tension in your mind and body starting to melt away. This is because our practitioners are well trained and understand what’s required to engender this.

Your massage is designed to relax, refresh and refocus your mind, providing an opportunity to disconnect and enjoy some well deserved downtime.

Where time permits, the key stress areas of the upper body are treated such as the back, scalp/head, neck, arms and hands.

If you’re receiving a 30+ minute massage, your legs and feet may be included! Your practitioner will be guided by your needs and wants and we encourage you to clearly communicate this to them.

Our massage is non-invasive. We invite you to tell your practitioner if you are uncomfortable at any time during your session and if you require any adjustment of pressure being applied. Clear and concise communication is fundamental to an incredible experience.

We highly recommend you use your massage time as an opportunity to let your mind wander. It is all too precious downtime for you after all.

Try not to talk to your practitioner (aside from the communications mentioned above) during your massage and you’ll appreciate and enjoy your massage so much more, experiencing a deeper relaxation.


At the agreed visit completion time, your practitioner will speak with their onsite contact and make sure they’re happy for them to finish up and depart. They make sure any space they’ve used is left as it was found.

We’re often asked “how often should we have a massage?” Our response is “as often as you’d like to feel this good!” Enjoy! You deserve it.
