Our friendly staff and professional massage therapists are committed to providing a relaxing, stress-free experience before, during and after your treatment. Here's what you can expect.
When you arrive at Le Masseur Personnel in Reading, you'll be greated by a team member at reception who will confirm your name and what treatment we have you booked in for. If this is your first visit, you'll be asked to fill out a health intake form to record any relevant medical history. We recommend arriving 10 to 15 minutes early for your appointment on your first visit to give you enough time to complete these forms.
Your therapist will review your health intake and the treatment you've booked before they introduce themselves and show you to your treatment room. They will discuss the reasons for your visit and any specific areas you would like to address during your massage. If your therapist feels the treatment you've booked is not the ideal treatment for your particular concern they will let you know which treatment they would recommend and you can always switch to the recommended treatment if available. Depending on the length of treatment booked, your session will include either 5 or 10 minutes for dressing.
Your treatment will be performed in a private treatment room, excluding chair massage treatments, which are performed through clothing in a public setting. Your therapist will leave the room to allow you to disrobe and lay down on the massage table under the towels. Before leaving the room, your therapist will explain what items of clothing will need to be removed for your booked treatment and will also request you to remove any jewelery or accessories that may hinder the treatment (for example, your necklace if you have booked for a neck massage etc.). Your massage therapist is trained in professional towel ethiquette and will only uncover the area of your body being worked on.
Communication is key to you receiving the most effective massage treatment possible. If you need a particular area worked more or if you feel the pressure needs adjusting please do tell your therapist, they won't be offended and it helps them help you. If they are unable to apply more pressure to a particular area, they will explain why.
Your massage therapist will let you know when the body work part of your session has ended and will leave the room to allow you complete privacy to dress. A glass of water will be waiting for you at reception.
Your therapist may have left any personal recommendations with regards to after-care and when you should schedule your next session with reception, who will be happy to go through the suggested options with you so please do feel free to ask.
