Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect during my massage?
Before you get on the table, I will conduct a brief interview, asking questions about your health history, current medications, preferences and such. Certain health concerns may contraindicate, or advise against, massage in some cases. The interview process will also help me to tailor the session to your needs, ensuring that you receive the most benefit from your massage. I will then leave the room while you undress and get on the massage table, underneath the sheets. You will always remain draped (covered) except for the area being treated. I will check in with you during the massage regarding pressure, comfort, etc. If at any time you would like to request something that would make your massage more comfortable or need pressure adjusted please let me know. This way you can take charge of your treatment and together we can work towards healing and relaxation.
What should I expect afterward?
At the end of your treatment I will gently bring you back to awareness, step out of the room to let you redress, and will be waiting for you outside the room with some cold water.
You should feel greatly relaxed.
It is not uncommon, however, especially with deeper bodywork, for a person to feel sore within 24-48 hours following massage. This may be due to the movement of toxins as they have been flushed from the muscles and are on their way toward elimination. Please remember to drink plenty of water (at least 64 oz) throughout the next couple of days to help reduce any soreness or bruising.
What is your policy about children?
The Center for Advanced Energy Therapeutics is not equipped to supervise unattended children, therefore we request that you either leave your child/children at home or bring them into the treatment room with you during your session.
How do I schedule an appointment?
For your convenience, click the "Book Now" button on either the Home or Menu page. This takes you directly to the scheduling page, where you will see my calendar and be able to book the best time that matches with our schedules. Saves time and energy from "phone tag". However, if you prefer, call at (520) 205-1918 or email from the contact page.
What form of payment do you take?
I accept payment in the form of cash, check and credit (Visa, MC, Discover, AmEx) at the time of treatment. ANR MASSAGE does not carry change for overpayment. Please make sure to have the correct amount.
Should I tip and how much?
Tipping is never a requirement. However, if you choose to leave a tip it is always welcome and greatly appreciated! The amount is up to you and depends on how well you enjoyed your experience and whether or not your needs were met.
