  • Stress Relief: Massage helps to relax the body, release tension, and reduce stress levels.
  • Pain Management: It can help alleviate chronic pain, reduce muscle soreness, and improve joint flexibility.

Do I need to undress completely for a massage?

Your comfort is our priority. For most massage sessions, it is recommended that you undress to your comfort level. However, you will always be properly draped with a sheet or towel during the session to ensure your privacy. Our therapists are trained to respect your boundaries and create a safe and comfortable environment.

Is massage therapy covered by insurance?

The coverage for massage therapy varies depending on your insurance provider and policy. Some insurance plans may cover massage therapy if it is deemed medically necessary or part of a recommended treatment plan. We recommend contacting your insurance provider to inquire about your specific coverage details and requirements. Our team at Valence Massage can provide you with a receipt for services rendered to submit to your insurance company for potential reimbursement.

What should I expect during my first massage appointment?

During your first massage appointment with Valence Massage, you will be asked to complete a health intake form to ensure we are aware of any specific health conditions or concerns. Your therapist will then discuss your goals and preferences for the session. Feel free to communicate any areas of focus or any discomfort you may be experiencing. From there, your therapist will guide you through the process, ensuring your comfort and addressing any questions or concerns you may have.

What if I need to cancel or reschedule my appointment?

We understand that life can sometimes be unpredictable. If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please notify us at least 24 hours in advance. This allows us to offer the time slot to other clients who may be waiting. Late cancellations or no-shows may be subject to a cancellation fee.

Is gratuity included in the session fee?

Gratuity is not included in the session fee. If you feel your therapist has gone above and beyond in providing exceptional service, it is customary to leave a gratuity. The amount is entirely at your discretion and greatly appreciated by our team.

Is there anything I should do after my massage session?

After your massage session, it is important to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. This helps flush out toxins released during the massage and supports the body's healing process. It is also advised to take it easy and allow your body to fully relax and enjoy the benefits of the treatment. Depending on the type of massage, your therapist may provide you with additional post-care recommendations tailored to your specific needs.
