Here’s what you can expect when you come for a massage at the Float Spa with one of our independent Therapists.
When you attend a massage appointment at The Float Spa, we offer you some cold water and then take you through to one of our treatment rooms. If it’s your first massage appointment, your massage therapist will sit with you and talk through what you would like to achieve from the session and if you have any issues that need addressing or conditions/injuries they need to be aware of. They will tell you what to expect in terms of how much pressure they’ll need to apply to get the result you’re looking for and will make you aware if the treatment is likely to be painful.
Once you have talked over everything, the therapist will leave the room so you can get undressed down to you underwear and then lie on the massage couch and cover yourself with a towel. You can put a blanket over yourself too if you feel cold but the rooms are generally kept nice and warm. When the therapist returns, they will knock on the door to ensure you’re ready for them and then begin the treatment.
Treatments vary hugely depending on which type of massage you have chosen and some use oils and some don’t. None of our massages use strongly scented oils except the aromatherapy one. Depending on the massage treatment you have chosen, some parts of the treatment may be quite intense and involve manipulation or pressure on certain part of the body which may be quite painful but you are welcome, at any time, to tell your massage therapist if it gets too much.
After the massage treatment, the therapist will leave you to get dressed and then show you into the relaxation area for some sorbet and tea. You may find you feel a little woozy afterwards so it is a good idea to sit for a bit until you feel more yourself again. It is advisable to drink plenty of water after the treatment and avoid exercise for the rest of the day. For some treatments, you may feel a little sore afterwards and even into the next day. This is nothing to worry about but do give us a call if you experience sharp or persistent pain.
