    Traditional Thai Massage
  1. Do I need to be extremely flexible for a Thai Massage session? No, you do not need to be unusually flexible. The purpose of treatment is to help increase your flexibility through a series of warm-ups, gentle palm and thumb pressure, rocking, and gentle stretches. You will be in a completely relaxed state. Therapist does all the work, not the recipient. A skilled Thai Practitioner can feel your range of motion and knows just how far to take you through various postures, moving and positioning you safely within your comfort level.

  2. How should I prepare myself for a Thai Therapy session? Wear comfortable clothing that will move with you, such as light-weight slacks, sweats or cotton materials. Long pants are preferred. It is recommended that you remove jewelry. Avoid having a large meal just prior to treatment. For further details, call (262) 515-7035.

  3. How often should I receive Thai massage treatments? For optimal soft tissue and joint health, a monthly 90-minute treatment is recommended. Depending on your specific needs, your therapist may recommend other therapies or more frequent visits to help address problem areas.

  4. Is Thai Massage for everyone? Not all forms of massage therapy and bodywork are suitable for people with particular health conditions. It is always best to inform your primary healthcare provider that you plan to receive massage therapy. Modifications can often be made to allow for a safe and therapeutic treatment. If you have questions or concerns before scheduling a treatment, please call 262-515-7035.

    Swedish Relaxation & Deep Tissue
  1. Exactly what areas are addressed in massage? For Deep Tissue massage, your therapist will recommend the best course of treatment and areas to concentrate on based on the reason for your visit and pre-session consult. A full-body Swedish Relaxation massage includes the head, face, neck, shoulders, back, buttocks, legs, feet, abdomen, chest (males), upper chest (females), arms and hands. You may specify any areas in which you would prefer no massage. You will be in control at all times.

  2. Do I need to undress fully? It is recommended to remove all articles of clothing and jewelry to experience an effective full body massage with an even flow. However, you are encouraged to undress to your comfort level and the massage will be adjusted accordingly. During your massage session, professional draping techniques are used to ensure your comfort. Your modesty will be respected at all times. Only the area that is being treated will be undraped and then re-draped before moving on to the next area.

  3. What if I'm embarrassed about my body? Unfortunately this is one of the most common reasons people give when asked why they never received a therapeutic massage. Your massage therapist is a professional who has seen bodies in every size and shape, from young to elderly and is not there to pass judgment, but only to provide a caring touch that can help relieve some of the symptoms of everyday stress, muscle tension and overuse injuries.

  4. Is Deep Tissue massage painful? Massage should not be extremely painful. The techniques used are designed to get through superficial muscles in order to address the deeper tissue which may be the source of muscle soreness or pain. Clients often state that it is a "hurts so good" feeling, similar to muscle tenderness experienced after a good exercise workout. Therapist/Client communication is key. During this therapeutic massage, the therapist will ask how the pressure feels to you and will work within your comfort level. It is the responsibility of the client to communicate when the pressure or technique is not within your tolerance.

    General Q & A's
  1. Do you offer "couples" massage? Only individual sessions are offered back-to-back. However, while one person is in session, there is a waiting area where you can relax, read or watch a video. Alternately, while waiting your turn, you can step outside and spend an hour exploring downtown Lake Geneva. The lake is just one block south; many restaurants and shopping opportunities are also available. The hour goes by fast (hopefully not for the recipient).

  2. What can Massage Therapy and Bodywork do for me? A massage therapy or bodywork session can be a truly healing experience often relieving aches and pains associated with stiff joints, muscle tension and soreness. Treatment can help increase your flexibility and provide stress reduction and an overall sense of well-being.

  3. Why do I need to fill out a health intake form? A health history lets your massage therapist decide what type of positions, techniques and pressure to use or areas to avoid, providing the best and safest treatment. The massage session will be modified to your individual needs. Please let your therapist know if there are any changes to this initial information.

  4. What forms of payment do you accept? VISA, MasterCard, DISCOVER and American Express are accepted. You may also make payment by cash or check. (Returned Check Fee $35)
