The modern world is tough on us. Each of us is bombarded physically, emotionally and mentally as we navigate life. With our bodies working diligently for us 24/7, taking time to pause is a way to best support our bodies as they try to achieve balance and restoration in the midst of chaos.

We carefully hand pick our therapists to ensure that they are committed to excellence and we take pride in delivering personalized and dedicated service. Our team is comprised of a wide variety of strengths and we work symbiotically to ensure the collective needs of our clients. As your needs evolve, so can your care with us, as your therapist can make the proper referrals based on each other’s individual strengths.

What To Expect
A Licensed, Certified, and Registered Massage Therapist will begin the process with a discovery consultation in which we will discuss your massage preferences and areas you’d like us to place focus.
Based on our conversation and your current physical condition, we will craft a treatment designed specifically for you and your needs.
During future visits, our Massage Therapist will ask about your progress to ensure we are tailoring your service as needed.
Frequently Asked Questions
What type of session should I book?
Many people become interested in massage for several reasons: to relax and de-stress, for relief from chronic aches and pains, and/or to rehabilitate a strained part of the body. In choosing a massage, it is important to identify your hierarchy of needs. Is your highest need to de-stress? Or, do you need help in healing a specific pain point? Most clients lean toward the 90-minute service, which allows time for both a relaxing and fully restorative treatment.
Should I make a reservation?
Reservations are strongly recommended to secure your preferred date and time of treatment. This can be done by phone or online. Ideal Massage also offers same day appointments. Remember, our location is open 7 days a week.
What should I wear to my massage?
The spa is all about comfort so come in whatever attire is relaxing. For a massage, you will be getting undressed and under the sheet and blanket so whatever you can get in and out of comfortably is the best option. For clients with long hair, it’s a good idea to bring a hair tie or clip to allow full access to the neck and back.
Do I have to get undressed for my massage?
We encourage all our clients to undress to their comfort level. Our therapists are trained to give quality bodywork at any level of dress, including fully clothed! Most of our clients choose to undress completely, and our professional draping will only expose the areas we are working on, keeping the rest of your body covered throughout the massage. Our top priority is your safety and comfort.
When do I show up for my treatment?
For new clients, we ask that you arrive 10 minutes early to fill out a brief intake form. For returning clients, arrive right on time!
How much should I tip?
Tipping is customary in the massage industry and always greatly appreciated! Our massage therapists work on commission and do not receive the full price of the session. The typical range for gratuity is between 15% and 25% of the price of the service, or around $15-$30 depending on the service.
What if I am self conscious on the table?
That’s okay! Everybody has their own insecurities, and we appreciate the trust required to be on our table. We hope that with each session, you become more and more comfortable. Our job is to ensure your comfort above all else and to find and relieve any pain. We see bodies of all shapes and sizes, and the only details we focus on are the muscles we are trained to heal.
After the Massage what should I expect?
The therapist will gently end the session and quietly exit the room. A quick conversation regarding any feedback for further bodywork will be discussed at check out and notated in your client file. You also have the option at that time to book your next appointment.
Is It Safe to Get a Massage Right After an Injury?
No. We recommend waiting at least 48 hours after an acute injury due to possible swelling in the area. When you have swollen tissue, it can be counterproductive to massage. You should ice any swollen areas and see a doctor if the swelling persists.
Can I Go to the Restroom During A Treatment?
Absolutely. Your therapist will ask you prior to your treatment if you would like to use the restroom. If at any time during the treatment you need to use the restroom again, just ask.
Prenatal / Postnatal Massage FAQ
A woman not only experiences physical changes while pregnant, but emotional changes as well. A prenatal massage will help ease discomforts that arise with the ever-changing pregnant body, such as swelling, sciatica, back pain, neck pain, and hip pain. A prenatal massage will not only calm and relax the mother, but will also calm and relax the baby. We only use natural scents for aromatherapy, but often any scent can be offensive to the sensitive pregnant nose. If you are experiencing heightened sensitivity please inform us ahead of time so we can take all precautions to ensure the most positive experience for you.
Some things to consider:
- We are only able to see mothers sixteen weeks or further in pregnancy. It is best to resume massage after this portion of the pregnancy has passed. Please call our clinic if you have questions.
- When making appointments, please specify number of weeks post birth.
- If you're breastfeeding, for your comfort please pump/feed beforehand
- The time frame considered for postpartum is 6 to 8 weeks after birth up to a year.
