F.A.Q.

You massage therapist is dedicated to providing you with a relaxing, therapeutic experience, here are some commonly asked questions.

Have a question we haven’t answered? Click below and ask away!

Do people fall asleep during a massage?

Yep, some folks do, or at least doze off on occasion. Something about a warm, dark room, relaxing music and nurturing hands can certainly induce a snooze. However, many clients try their best to stay awake so they don’t miss anything! It’s fine with us either way.

What if I only want specific parts of the body worked on?

Great! Every massage treatment should be exactly what you need and want. Whether you want want the full session on your face and scalp, just the legs and feet, just the low back, etc., we will accommodate whatever your body tells you it needs. However, there is a possibility of “overworking” an area and actually creating more tissue trauma or inflammation. Your therapist should be able to recognize that and might suggest moving on to another area.

How often should I get a massage?

This will depend on many factors, such as your specific condition or injury, how you feel after massage, and how long the effects last, and your schedule and budget. It may take a couple of sessions to determine the ideal frequency for you, but your therapist can give suggestions based on these things and how your soft tissues feel and react from treatment to treatment.

What do I wear?

You can wear whatever you like to a massage session. Typically, we leave the massage room and have our clients disrobe and get under sheets and blankets for warmth and modesty, then simply uncover the part of the body we need to work on once the massage begins. We always want our clients to feel 100% safe and comfortable. You have the option of removing all clothing, leaving some on, or even leaving all clothing on if that is your preference. We will adapt to your needs!

What if I want the therapist to change something during the massage?

Definitely speak up! Our job is to adapt and accommodate your needs, and we want you to get the most out of your session. Whether you want more or less pressure, changes in temperature, a different kind of music…anything within our power to adjust is a reasonable request and we encourage you to let us know how we can make your experience perfect! It will not hurt our feelings, we promise.

What type of massage should I schedule?

Unless you are booking something that requires advanced set up (bamboo or hot stone or spa treatments) or a specialized technique (CranioSacral, Reiki, Fijian Barefoot), you don’t need to specify a type of massage. Your therapist will talk with you before the session starts to identify your expectations, what brought you in, your previous experience with massage and how you felt afterward, what areas (if any) you are experiencing pain, etc., and together you will develop a game plan for the session. The therapist will likely use various techniques to achieve the goals you have for the session…even if that is just to relax and unwind!

Does insurance cover massage?

Mettler Center does not accept insurance for massage therapy. However, you may choose to submit your receipt to your insurance company and see if they will provide any individual reimbursement.

Testimonials

“I have seen multiple massage therapists at the Mettler Center and they ALL have been great. The work Jane does to release my psoas muscle is unlike anyone else. Jane’s ability to get this muscle release has eliminated hip pain that I was suffering on a daily basis and was especially painful while sleeping. Jane has eliminated pain and stiffness that I previously thought I had to accept. Jane does an amazing job!

“Cassey has done a few massages on me, both prenatal and non-prenatal. She is absolutely amazing! I have been to other spas and other massages don’t compare to what you get with Cassey. She is extremely professional and does a great job at making sure you get everything you need out of the experience. I have referred my mom and other people to her that require massage therapy. I can’t wait for my next massage with Cassey!”

AMANDA G.

“I have used the Massage services at Mettler Center for many years now. Jason Anderson is one of the massage therapists I often use. He is attuned to my needs and he knows how to work out several areas of tension on my back and neck. I cannot praise enough his techniques and skills. Jason will always ask me if there is something I want him to concentrate on during the massage. I have never felt uncomfortable during our sessions. His attention to details and to my specific needs makes him, in my opinion, an excellent therapist that I will continue to use in the future. “
