Before Your Session
Once you arrive at Red & White Spa, our front desk will greet you and ask you to fill out a Guest Care Form The Customer Care Form is where you record any medical history, past/present injuries and other physical conditions we should be made aware of. Your massage therapist will greet you and review the Form with you. They will inquire about the reason(s) you are coming in for a massage, your current physical condition and any specific areas in which you are experiencing pain or would ttlike to address during your massage.
Beginning Your Session
Your massage therapist will then take you to a peaceful, spa-like treatment room where a comfortable massage table dressed with a warming blanket and crisp clean sheets awaits. Hangers and wall hooks for your personal belongings and a chair are also provided for your use. Your massage therapist will leave the room and wait outside while you disrobe to your level of comfort. The massage etiquette varies for clients. Some clients prefer to completely disrobe, while some will remain partially clothed. Either option is fine.Once disrobed, you will lie on the massage table, under the top sheet. Your massage therapist will give you a few minutes for this process and will knock on the door to ask if you are ready before entering your room.
You will always be draped with the top sheet during your massage session and an additional blanket is available at your request. The etiquette your massage therapist will follow is to only uncover the part of the body they are working on, ensuring that your modesty is respected at all times.
You can expect a tranquil and comfortable environment during your massage. There will be relaxing music playing, unless you request otherwise, and the room should be quiet, with no outside distractions.
During Your Session
Before beginning the session, your therapist will ask you to alert them if, at any time during the session, a technique or stroke they are using is uncomfortable. Depending on your specific needs or requests, your massage therapist will either perform a customized full-body massage (for general relaxation and stress reduction) or focus on the specific parts of your body that you have requested.
After Your Session
Once your massage therapy session is complete, your therapist will leave the room so you may re-dress. Your therapist will wait outside the room for you with a cup of water, and then take you back to the front area when you're ready. Each session includes a 5 minute pre-interview and 5 minutes at the end for you to re-dress.
We look forward to seeing you for your first visit. If you have any questions about the etiquette during a massage, one of our friendly front desk associates will be happy to answer them for you or you may read the "Mortify" Page for additional session concerns & questions.
It's a very good idea to drink a couple of additional glasses of water during the day after your session. Water is the most abundant compound on Earth's surface, covering about 70 percent of the planet, think of it as a nutrient your body needs that helps energize muscles, keep skin looking good and keep the body well balanced.
