WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM MY FIRST SESSION?
Valerie understands how challenging it can be to find a good practitioner and someone you feel comfortable with too. Upon your first visit, you will be warmly welcomed and made to feel at ease. Valerie practices in the principle that a person is comprised of many elements. No one aspect could possibly define who you are. At Full Circle Vitality, Valerie's approach to health includes viewing you as the wonderfully unique individual that you are. Upon arriving, you will enter the studio and fill out a standard form. Lights will be kept dim in the massage studio so as to induce a feeling of relaxation in preparation for your treatment. Valerie will discuss your areas of concern with you and then you will be left to undress and get on the massage table. She will then knock to make sure you are on the table, then re-enter the room and begin treatment, with music playing softly in the background.
WHY AM I SORE AFTER MY MASSAGE?
Following a true deep tissue massage, you may feel sore and tender the day after treatment, which subsides and is fully gone after 2-3 days. The reason this occurs is because the therapist creates a degree of trauma to the musculature that was so tight prior to the massage. Muscles that have become tight have a degree of fibrosing to them, which the deep tissue massage removes after a lot of cross-fiber stripping of the musculature and extra pressure where needed. As the tenderness subsides, you'll be feeling a whole lot less restricted!
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY FIRST TREATMENT?
Book your appointment online. You may pay online as well or pay in person via cash, credit card, Venmo, Zelle or CashApp. On the day of your appointment, it's best that you shower in preparation of your massage so that your body can receive the beneficial oils with clean skin.
