Frequently Asked Massage Questions

What should I wear during the massage?

For many, but not all types of full body massages, you will be asked to remove clothing only to your level of comfort. Massage is conducted in a private room in which the therapist is never present when you are dressing or undressing and a sheet will cover you throughout the entire session. The therapist will only expose the area being treated. This will insure the modesty is respected at all times.

Should I shower immediately before a massage appointment?

Not necessarily. Normal good hygiene is expected, so feel free to come as you are from work, home, or school.

I’m a private/shy person: is massage for me?

Probably yes. Your therapist will customize your experience to your needs. You are in charge of your session at all times and can choose what you wear, what areas of your body receive therapy, etc. As with other healthcare workers, your therapist encounters many different body types and physical and emotional conditions and is required by law to keep client information confidential.

Are massage sessions covered by insurance?

Increasingly yes, with a prescription from an appropriate healthcare provider, but you are required to pay your therapist at the time of your session and submit your insurance claim yourself.

How do I arrange to receive a massage?

Massages are by appointment only. You may arrange this either through our Contact Us or Schedule Appointment link on our web site, via email info@fitness-4-u.com, or by phone 513-932-5449.

Are walk-in appointments accepted?

Not generally. Though they are theoretically possible, it would be rare to walk in and find a therapist available to provide treatment for you, within a reasonable time without arranging for this by phone.

Are checks or credit/debit cards accepted?

Forms of payment that are accept Visa, Mastercard, cash and checks.

To be effective, how often should I receive a massage?

Some clients feel that their goals are best served by a regular weekly massage (Bob Hope reportedly receives a daily massage). Some start off with a weekly massage to help attain their goals and then schedule regular massages on a less frequent timetable. Some schedule them on an as needed basis. A rule of thumb in bodywork is that to best maintain its effect between sessions the interval should be no more than 3 weeks.

What should I expect?

An initial visit will usually include questions from your therapist about your physical condition, medical history, lifestyle, stress level, your goals in receiving a massage, and any areas of pain or concern. Answers to these questions are usually recorded on a written form. All client information is kept confidential. Your therapist will then suggest a session plan to meet your individual needs. Additional time should be allowed on the initial visit for this process.
