What do I need to communicate to the therapist?

Before arrival, please indicate if you have any allergies or sensitivity to scents or oils and the room will be prepared to be as free from them as much as possible.
Before the session begins, please specify if there are any parts of your body you don’t like being touched (ie: if your feet are ticklish or you don’t like your head massaged). 
During the massage be sure to speak up if you are too cold or hot and if the pressure is too deep or not deep enough.

What do I need to wear?

Come as you are. You will be left in the room alone to undress to your level of comfort. That means you can take it all off or leave your underwear on. You will be under a sheet the whole time and only the area being worked will be exposed.

Do you take Insurance?

Not directly, however check with your insurance provider, some will reimburse you up to a certain amount, or most flexible savings accounts cover the cost under 'other' as long as you provide an itemized receipt.

Is there parking?

Yes, in front there is some street parking, as well as a parking lot on the northwest side of Kalispell Grand Hotel off 1st Street East.

Do you offer special rates or discounts?

Yes. You can find more details under Services/Special Rates & Discounts section

Is there anything nearby where my spouse/friend/child can go while I get my treatment?

This space is located on Main Street/Hwy 93 S directly in downtown Kalispell with lots of places to walk around and explore in the area.

Do you work on kids or teens?

Yes! It is recommended that children ages 6-14 receive treatments under 30 minutes. It is required that the child’s guardian remain in the treatment room the entire session and a release form is signed before treatment.

What if I am pregnant?

No problem! If you have had complicated pregnancies in the past or are having a high risk pregnancy then please check with your doctor first.

Pregnancy massage is not advised during the first trimester. However it’s very beneficial in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters.

Sideline maternity massage techniques are used and you should feel less achy and de-stressed when you walk out the door.

How often should I get a massage?

You can get massage as often as you like! Getting wellness treatments are no longer an indulgence but are considered a preventative and a healthy addition to living a balanced life.

Can I get a massage if I am sick?

Getting a massage if you are sick is not advised. You will often feel worse and potentially bring your germs and spread them. Please stay home if you are not feeling well.

Will getting a massage hurt?

You always have control of the pressure, be sure to speak up and ask for more or less pressure. Some areas of the body can be more sensitive than others and depending on if you just finished skiing, recently returned from an extensive hike or lifted more than you normally do, you may be more sore in the tired, overworked muscles.

What length of time for massage should I book?

90 minutes is ideal for both specific work and relaxation results.
60 minutes is great for either deep relaxation or specific work on 2-3 zones on the body.
30 minutes is a good place to start if you are unsure about massage or only need 1-2 zones on the body such as just your feet or just neck and shoulders.

Do you offer two treatments at the same time or couples massage?

No, unfortunately it is a comfortably small studio with one treatment table.

Will I be sore after the massage session?

Sometimes, yes, more often with deep tissue massage. It will often feel like post workout soreness. You should feel better by the next day or sometimes two days later at the most. However, most people feel no pain after a massage, just better than when they came in. It is recommended to stay well hydrated and drink plenty of water after receiving a massage.

Can I talk or ask questions or do I have to be quiet?

At any time you can ask questions. The first few minutes will consist of some questions about your goals of the session but conversation is client driven. If you want to chat, we can chat. If you want a quiet session, just say you want a quiet session.

Do you offer gift certificates?

Yes. Ask the therapist for more details.

Do you come to location (AirBNB, Group, etc.)

Therapist can provide Travel Massage services for a minimum of 2 massages on a case-by-case basis. Contact therapist for more details.
