Frequently Asked Questions

You will be requested to fill out a health history form and any restrictions for massage will be discussed during your first visit.  Please arrive about 10-15 minutes early so that your therapist can address any concerns prior to therapy.  Please make sure to share prior surgeries and medications so that therapy can be personalized to your needs.   Let your therapist know about any allergies in case they need to avoid specific oils or lotions that could trigger a reaction. 

In Kentucky, a license is issued by the board of massage therapist to a person that has completed training and has been certified to provide massage therapy.  To obtain this license the therapist will have had to pass a licensing examination as well as meet other requirements set by the licensing board.  Generally, ongoing education is also required. 

How often to get a massage depends on your needs and budget.  If you are looking to relax your muscles and keep in good shape, generally it is best to receive a session every 3-6 weeks.  If you have a specific issue that needs to be addressed, weekly may be necessary. To know how frequent you should get a massage it is best to discuss this with your therapist after your first visit.

Your level of undress during a massage is completely up to you. You may completely undress or leave your undergarments on. The therapist will work around your clothes as much as possible. Your therapist will leave the room while you undress in privacy and get under the sheets and blankets on the table. 

It is not unusual to be a little sore after a deep massage much like an intense workout. Most people are relaxed and experience a significant reduction in long term pains and aches. It is important to drink plenty of water after a massage to remain hydrated and stay healthy.

While a tip is never required at Blue Halo Med Spa, our therapist greatly appreciates gratuity. Most people tip about 15 to 20 percent when they feel that their therapist met or exceeded their expectations.
